The Islamic Greeting

Ml Yusuf Laher

 

One can greet with any one of these three phrases:

 

a) Assalaamu Alaykum

 

b) Assalaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullaah

 

c) Assalaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh. 

 

This is established from a Hadeeth of Timidhi, under the Chapter on Salaam.

 

* Do not add anything after ‘Barakaatuh’.

 

* Do not shorten it by just saying Salaam. The shortest form is Assalaamu Alaykum.
