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).”
