Asalaamu calaykum

Recommended Posts

Oh one more thing


It is a recommended sunnah (way, tradition) to greet the muslim; it is fard (obligatory) to reply.


The Noble Qur'an An-Nur 24:61


...when you enter the houses, greet one another with a greeting from Allâh (i.e. say: As-Salâmu 'Alaikum - peace be on you) blessed and good. Thus Allâh makes clear the Ayât (these Verses or your religious symbols and signs, etc.) to you that you may understand.


The Noble Qur'an An-Nisa 4:86


When you are greeted with a greeting, greet in return with what is better than it, or (at least) return it equally. Certainly, Allâh is Ever a Careful Account Taker of all things.


Ibn Katheer raheemahullaah explained this verse by saying: "If the person greeted you with the Salaam you should reply in a better form, or reply similarly. However, the extended form is preferable, but the shorter is compulsory. Which means that greeting is preferable but the greeting in return is compulsory, and it should be in the form of the Salaam and not in any other form."


Hadith - Abu Dawood 5178, Narrated Abu Umamah RD


The Prophet PBUH said: Those who are nearest to Allah are they who are first to give a salutation
