SPREADING PEACE, GREETING WITH PEACE – (2)

SPREADING PEACE, GREETING WITH PEACE – (2)

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Abu Huraira, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: The Messenger of Allah, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

إِذَا انْتَهَى أَحَدُكُمْ إِلَى الْمَجْلِسِ فَلْيُسَلِّمْ فَإِذَا أَرَادَ أَنْ يَقُومَ فَلْيُسَلِّمْ فَلَيْسَتْ الْأُولَى بِأَحَقَّ مِنْ الْآخِرَةِ

When one of you arrives in a gathering, let him greet them with peace. When he intends to leave, let him leave them with peace. The first greeting is not more worthy than the last.

Mu’adh ibn Anas, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: The Messenger of Allah, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

It is a duty upon one arriving at a gathering to offer greetings of peace to them. It is a duty upon one leaving a gathering to offer salutations of peace to them.

مَنْ قَالَ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ كُتِبَ لَهُ عَشْرُ حَسَنَاتٍ وَمَنْ قَالَ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ كُتِبَ لَهُ عِشْرُونَ حَسَنَةً وَمَنْ قَالَ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ كُتِبَ لَهُ ثَلَاثُونَ حَسَنَةً

Abu Huraira, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: A man passed by the Messenger of Allah, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, while he was sitting in a gathering. The man said, “Peace be upon you.” The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

عَشْرُ حَسَنَاتٍ

Ten good deeds.

Another man passed by and he said, “Peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah.” The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

عِشْرُونَ حَسَنَةً

Twenty good deeds.

Another man passed by and he said, “Peace be upon you, the mercy of Allah, and his blessings.” The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

ثَلاثُونَ حَسَنَةً

Thirty good deeds.

A man stood up to leave the gathering and he did not offer salutations of peace. The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

مَا أَوْشَكَ مَا نَسِيَ صَاحِبُكُمْ إِذَا جَاءَ أَحَدُكُمُ الْمَجْلِسَ فَلْيُسَلِّمْ فَإِنْ بَدَا لَهُ أَنْ يَجْلِسَ فَلْيَجْلِسْ وَإِذَا قَامَ فَلْيُسَلِّمْ مَا الأُولَى بِأَحَقَّ مِنَ الآخِرَةِ

How quickly your companion forgets! If one of you comes to a gathering, let him greet them with peace. If there is room for him to sit, let him sit. If he stands to leave, let him offer salutations of peace. The former duty is no different than the latter.

إِنَّ أَعْجَزَ النَّاسِ مَنْ عَجَزَ فِي الدُّعَاءِ وَإِنَّ أَبْخَلَ النَّاسِ مَنْ بَخِلَ بِالسَّلامِ

إِنَّ أَسْرَقَ النَّاسِ مَنْ سَرَقَ صَلاتَهُ

Verily, the worst thieves among people are those who steal from their prayers.

It was said, “O Messenger of Allah, how do they steal from their prayers?” The Prophet, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said:

لا يُتِمُّ رُكُوعَهَا وَلا سُجُودَهَا وَأَبْخَلُ النَّاسِ مَنْ بَخِلَ بِالسَّلامِ

They do not complete its bowing or its prostration. The most miserly of people are those who are miserly with the greeting of peace.

بِعْنِي عَذْقَكَ الَّذِي فِي حَائِطِ فُلَانٍ

Sell me your cloister that is on the wall of your neighbor.
