Greeting people with Salaam


Greeting people in Islam is a very encouraged practice by the Prophet of Allah []. One greets with the following words:

As-salamu alaikum
May peace be upon you

The person receiving the greetings should reply:

Wa alaikum salaam
And upon you be peace


  • Narrated from Abdullah ibn 'Umar [] that a man asked the Messenger of Allah []: "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"
    [Sahih Bukhari]
