Sunnats and Aadaab of Greeting (Salaam) – Part 8

Salaam1. One should make salaam upon entering the home. If there is no one present within the home, he should make salaam by saying “Assalaamu Alaina Wa ‘ala ‘Ibaadillahis Saaliheen”.

عن ابن عمر في الرجل يدخل في البيت أو في المسجد ليس فيه أحد قال: يقول: السلام علينا وعلى عباد الله الصالحين (المصنف لابن ابي شيبة رقم 26353)

It is reported that Hadhrat Abdullah bin Umar (Radhiyallahu Anhuma) mentioned regarding a person who enters a home or the Musjid wherein no one is present, that he should say Assalaamu Alaina Wa ‘ala ‘Ibaadillahis Saaliheen.”
