8. From an entire group of people, if one person among them makes salaam to someone they meet, his salaam will suffice on behalf of the entire group. Similarly, if a person meets a group of people and greets them with salaam, the reply of one person among them will suffice on behalf of the entire group.

7. When replying to the salaam of someone, one should reply to the salaam verbally and not by a mere sign of the hand or a nod of the head.

عن عمرو بن شعيب عن أبيه عن جده رضي الله عنهم أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: ليس منا من تشبه بغيرنا لا تشبهوا باليهود ولا بالنصارى فإن تسليم اليهود الإشارة بالأصابع وتسليم النصارى الإشارة بالأكف (سنن الترمذي رقم 2695)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who emulates the ways (and culture) of others is not from amongst us. Do not emulate the Jews nor the Christians (in their ways and culture). When the Jews greet each other, they greet each other by gesturing with their fingers, and when the Christians greet each other, they greet each other by gesturing with their hands.” (Therefore, we should refrain from emulating them in their manner of greeting).

Muhammad bin ‘Amr bin ‘Ataa’ (rahimahullah) reports, “On one occasion, I was seated with Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) when a person from Yemen entered the gathering and made salaam saying, ‘Assalaam ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wabaraakatuhu’ and he then added some words with the salaam. Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) asked, “Who is this person?” as at that time, he had lost his eyesight. His companions said, “This is the person from Yemen who comes to your gatherings regularly.” They described the person until Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) recognized him. Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) then said, “Salaam ends with barakah (i.e. by saying wabaraakatuhu).””

4. If one is greeted with salaam, it is waajib for one to reply to the salaam.

5. When replying to the salaam, it is permissible for one to reply equally to the greeting received. However, if one increases the words in the greeting, it will be better and more rewarding e.g. if one was greeted with the words “Assalaamu ‘Alaikum”, then one may reply by saying “wa ‘alaikumus salaam”. However, it is better and more rewarding for one to say “wa ‘alaikumus salaam wa rahmatullah” or “wa ‘alaikumus salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu.”

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “He has received twenty rewards.” Thereafter, another person came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and greeted him saying, “Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakaatuh.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied to the salaam, and the person sat down in the gathering.

عن أبي هريرة 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 (صحيح مسلم رقم 54)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (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).”
