33. One should not hasten in removing his hand after making musaafahah. Rather, one should allow the next person to remove his hand first.

عن أنس بن مالك قال : كان النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم إذا استقبله الرجل فصافحه لا ينزع يده من يده حتى يكون الرجل الذي ينزع ولا يصرف وجهه عن وجهه حتى يكون الرجل الذي يصرفه (ترمذي رقم 2490)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that when any person would meet Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and make musaafahah, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would not remove his hand, until the other person removed his hand first, and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) would not turn his face away (to leave from the place of meeting), until the other person turned his face away first (to leave from the place of meeting).

29. When two Muslims meet, then after salaam, they should make musaafahah (shake hands). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has said that the completion of greeting one’s Muslim brother at the time of meeting him is that he makes musaafahah with him after salaam.

Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “(When two Muslims meet) then the completion of their greeting (each other with salaam) is that they make musaafahah with each other.”

28. One should not make salaam when greeting a non-Muslim. If a non-Muslim greets one with salaam, then one should reply by merely saying “Wa ‘Alaik” (and upon you), and if many non-Muslims greet one with salaam, one should reply by saying “Wa ‘Alaikum” (and upon you all).

عن أنس بن مالك أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: إذا سلم عليكم أهل الكتاب فقولوا وعليكم (صحيح مسلم: الرقم 2163)

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When the Ahl-e-kitaab (Jews and Christians) make salaam to you, then reply by merely saying “Wa ‘alaikum”.”

27. It is an adab (Islamic etiquette) that the one who is walking should greet the one who is sitting first. The one who is riding a conveyance should greet the one who is walking first. Similarly, the young should greet the elders first, and a small jamaat (those that are fewer in number) should greet the bigger jamaat (those who are many) first.

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال يسلم الراكب على الماشي والماشي على القاعد والقليل على الكثير وزاد ابن المثنى في حديثه ويسلم الصغير على الكبير (صحيح مسلم الرقم: 2703)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The one who is riding a conveyance should greet the one who is walking first. The one who is walking should greet the one who is sitting first. Those that are few in number (a small group) should greet those that are many (a big group) first. The young should greet the elders first.”

Note: Though the Islamic etiquette is that these groups mentioned in the Hadith should greet first, however each one should endeavor to make salaam first, as it was the sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to greet first upon meeting.
