59. To greet each other (Salam Karna)

 

Surah No. 4, An Nisa, Ayat No. 86



وَإِذَا حُيِّيتُمْ بِتَحِيَّةٍ فَحَيُّوا بِأَحْسَنَ مِنْهَا أَوْ رُدُّوهَا إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ

o عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ حَسِيبًا

Translation :



When you are greeted (Assalam O Alaikum) by someone, you greet in return in better words than that (Wa Alaikum Assalam Rahmatullahe wa Barakatohu), or atleast return it with same equal words (Wa Alaikum Assalam). Allah takes careful account of all things.



Surah No. 24, An Noor, Part of Ayat No. 61



فَإِذَا دَخَلْتُم بُيُوتًا فَسَلِّمُوا عَلَى أَنفُسِكُمْ تَحِيَّةً مِّنْ عِندِ اللَّهِ مُبَارَكَةً طَيِّبَةً كَذَلِكَ

oيُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمُ الْآيَاتِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُون



Translation :



When you enter the houses, greet one another with a greeting from Allâh (say: As-Salâmu 'Alaikum -[ peace be upon you ]) blessed and good. Thus Allâh makes clear the revealation to you that you may understand.



Comments :


We should keep in mind that whenever we meet a believer whether he or she is younger or elder we must take the initiative to greet them first. To greet means we say " Assalam Alaikum " (Means "Peace be upon you"). In return the fellow person should reply in better words as " Wa Alaikum Assalam Rahmatullahe wa Barakatohu" or can reply in the same equal words as " Wa Alaikum Assalam "
