Question

CAN YOU TELL ME A DETAIL INFORMATION ON THE IMPORTANCE OF SAYING SALAAM AND SAYING WAALAIKUM-AS-SALAAM?

Answer

All people have the custom of greeting one another....When Islam came, Allaah prescribed that the manner of greeting among Muslims should be Al-salaamu alaykum, and that this greeting should only be used among Muslims and not for other nations. The meaning of salaam

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) made spreading salaam a part of faith. Al-Bukhaari (12, 28 and 6236), Muslim (39), Ahmad (2/169), Abu Dawood (5494), al-Nisaai, (8/107) and Ibn Hibbaan (505) narrated from Abd-Allaah ibn Umar that a man asked the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): What is the best thing in Islam? , He said: Feeding others and giving the greeting of salaam to those whom you know and those whom you do not know.

Thus the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) explained that this salaam spreads love and brotherhood. Muslim (54), Ahmad (2/391), and al-Tirmidhi (2513) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

You will not enter Paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I not tell you about something which, if you do it, you will love one another? Spread salaam amongst yourselves.

Al-Qaadi Ayaad said in al-Ikmaal (1/304):

This is urging us to spread salaam, as mentioned above, among those whom we know and those whom we do not know. Salaam is the first level of righteousness and the first quality of brotherhood, and it is the key to creating love. By spreading salaam the Muslims love for one another grows stronger and they demonstrate their distinctive symbols and spread a feeling of security amongst themselves. This is the meaning of Islam.


The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded us to return salaams, and made it a right and a duty. Ahmad (2/540), al-Bukhaari (1240), Muslim (2792), al-Nisaai in al-Yawm wal-Laylah (221) and Abu Dawood (5031) all reported that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: The Muslim has five rights over his fellow-Muslim: he should return his salaams, visit him when he is sick, attend his funeral, accept his invitation, and pray for mercy for him [say Yarhamuk Allaah] when he sneezes.

Terrorist will never hijack the religion of Allah.
Please watch your statement.
Rasoolulah (SAW) have told us about these signs of the last Hour..when the number of faithful Muslims will reduce drastically.
When the religion will be divided into sects as much as 70.
But the ones who will be saved are those who stand with Allah and his Quran

If goats could hijack your religion is it Islamic Terrorists that can't?

Sunan Ibn Majah 1944

It was narrated that 'Aishah said:

“The Verse of stoning and of breastfeeding an adult ten times was revealed, and the paper was with me under my pillow. When the Messenger of Allah died, we were preoccupied with his death, and a tame sheep came in and ate it.”

Alhamdulillah I am a Muslim. We believe in Allah who needs no son, partner or helper in his dominion. Allah alone deserves all worship.

We believe Allah forgives the repentant Muslim, hence we disbelieve that someone's ritualistic blood in death will save us.

We believe in Jesus son of Maryam as a messenger of Allah sent to Israel. He performed great miracles by Allah's leave.
He ate, drink, sleep, was born, suckled and behaved like a man. He didn't die but was raised up and will be back again to fulfill his destiny and then die.

May Allah Grant Salam to Nigeria and stop all the killers/corrupt/thieves looting our country.

.you are so correct. A religious leader said you never tell an infidel ( any non muslim) salaam because there should never be peace between you and them

Very peaceful. Everywhere his message gets to and is received, peace and progress reigns. Even when people go astray, they are not met with death and violence but rather empathy and correction. His message is to love your neighbour as yourself.

Why is Israel Jesus's country not a Christian country? Apparently they didn't get the message like you lied.

Thank God my family don't live in areas where the people who salam have the upper hand.
But for me who travels a lot. I've seen so many bombs. Salam Kaboom

Yahweh Jehovah didn't throw bombs yet killed so many in the old testament. He did repented in the new testament but killed his son as a ritual sacrifice like those babalawo blood ritual to save others.
