Sunnats of Greeting – Part Three

Written by

3. When making salaam, one should make salaam by saying “Assalaamu ‘Alaikum.” One may add to the words of the salaam by saying “Assalaamu ‘Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah ” or “Assalaamu ‘Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa barakaatuhu”. Increasing the words in the salaam causes the reward to increase.

عن عمران بن حصين رضي الله عنه قال: جاء رجل إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال: السلام عليكم فرد عليه السلام ثم جلس فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: عشر ثم جاء آخر فقال: السلام عليكم ورحمة الله فرد عليه فجلس فقال: عشرون ثم جاء آخر فقال: السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته فرد عليه فجلس فقال: ثلاثون (سنن أبي داود رقم 5197)

Hazrat ‘Imraan bin Husain (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that once, a person came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and greeted him saying, “Assalaamu ‘alaikum.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied to the salaam, and the person sat down in the gathering. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “He has received ten rewards.” Thereafter, another person came to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and greeted him saying, “Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullah.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied to the salaam, and the person sat down in the gathering. 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. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “He has received thirty rewards.”

2. 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 (صحيح البخاري رقم 12)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) 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.”

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).”
