This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Sunnats and Aadaab of Greeting

Salaam1. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has encouraged us in the mubaarak Ahaadith to make salaam a common practice among ourselves. Making salaam will be a means of creating love and unity among ourselves.

عن عبد الله بن عمرو: أن رجلا سأل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: أي الإسلام خير؟ قال: تطعم الطعام وتقرأ السلام على من عرفت ومن لم تعرف (بخاري رقم 12)

Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Amr (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that a man once asked Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam): “Which feature and etiquette of Islam is highly commendable and good?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: “Feeding the creation and greeting people with salaam whether you know them or not.”

عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: لا تدخلون الجنة حتى تؤمنوا ولا تؤمنوا حتى تحابوا أولا أدلكم على شيء إذا فعلمتموه تحاببتم؟ أفشوا السلام بينكم. (مسلم رقم 54)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "You will not enter Paradise until you bring Imaan; and you will not acquire perfect Imaan until you possess mutual love. Should I not show you a method whereby you will be able to inculcate mutual love among yourselves? Make salaam a common practice amongst yourselves (i.e. at the time of meeting each other).”

Salaam1. When one meets his Muslim brother, he should greet him with salaam.

عن علي رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : للمسلم على المسلم ست بالمعروف يسلم عليه إذا لقيه ويجيبه إذا دعاه ويشمته إذا عطس ويعوده إذا مرض ويتبع جنازته إذا مات ويحب له ما يحب لنفسه. )الترمذي رقم 2736)

Hadhrat Ali (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “A Muslim has six rights over his Muslim brother. When he meets him he should greet him (with salaam); if he invites him he should accept his invitation; when he sneezes (and says Alhamdulillah) he should reply to his sneeze by saying ‘Yarhamukallah’; when he falls ill he should visit him; when he passes away he should attend his Janaazah; and he should love for him what he loves for himself.
