    Virtual video greetings

    Report bad ads?

    I've never gotten a clear answer to this.

    If a Youtuber (or someone in a video in general) gives the Islamic greeting or someone says hello, do you have respond back?

    I also get emails from Bayyinah saying 'Asalamu alaikum'. Do I have to return them back.

    Re: Virtual video greetings

    If someone writes you a message (whether it's email, PM, WhatsApp, etc.) with the Islaamic greeting, you have two options in front of you:

    1) Reply verbally and not write the greeting back to the person (the verbal utterance sufficed you from that).

    2) Write the greeting back to the person (Wa `Alaykumus Salaam wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh).

    You can also do both, if you want.

    A YouTube video on the other hand does not count, because that is a recorded message not directed at you particularly in the first place.

    Re: Virtual video greetings

    could imagine driving other people nuts..

    shouting walaqum asalaam at computer screen.

    ..no its not funny.

    although if etiquette permits then it's a nice habit to write it in a reply or YouTube comment.

    would get you noticed for sure..

    Unless it's an automated email.. :/

    personally could do a gif with sound and attach it to everything..

    although I would hate to appear a fool or make mockary when none is intended.

    ..so it's not a thing yet and I would hate to suffer for my comedy.

    ooh what's this.. *clicks gif* :|

    No need to shout the greeting. Can say it just audible enough for yourself to hear.

    Think I saw a hadith that says respond with the same, similar or even better greeting. So I don't think it only applies to the Islaamic greeting.

    No, it is an ayah

    “When you are greeted with a greeting, greet in return with what is better than it, or (at least) return it equally.” [al-Nisa’ 4:86]

    Re: Virtual video greetings

    {وَإِذَا حُيِّيتُمْ بِتَحِيَّةٍ** كَأَنْ قِيلَ لَكُمْ سَلَام عَلَيْكُمْ {فَحَيُّوا** الْمُحَيِّي {بِأَحْسَن مِنْهَا** بِأَنْ تَقُولُوا لَهُ عَلَيْك السَّلَام وَرَحْمَة اللَّه وَبَرَكَاته {أَوْ رُدُّوهَا** بِأَنْ تَقُولُوا لَهُ كَمَا قَالَ أَيْ الْوَاجِب أَحَدهمَا وَالْأَوَّل أَفْضَل

    From Jalaalayn:

    "And when you are greeted with a greeting [meaning, it is said to you "Salaamun `Alaykum"] then greet [the one who greeted you] with better than it [by saying to him, "`Alaykas Salaam wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh"] or return it [by repeating to him the greeting he gave you. Meaning, that is compulsory, but the first (to respond with better) is more virtuous.]" [Tafseer Jalaalayn of Imaam as-Suyooti رحمة الله عليه,on Aayah 86 of Soorah an-Nisaa.]

    From Tafseer ibn Katheer:

    {وَإِذَا حُيِّيتُمْ بِتَحِيَّةٍ فَحَيُّوا بِأَحْسَنَ مِنْهَا أَوْ رُدُّوهَا** أَيْ: إِذَا سَلَّمَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمُسْلِمُ، فَرَدُّوا عَلَيْهِ أَفْضَلَ مِمَّا سَلَّمَ، أَوْ رَدُّوا عَلَيْهِ بِمِثْلِ مَا سَلَّمَ [بِهِ] (6) فَالزِّيَادَةُ مَنْدُوبَةٌ، وَالْمُمَاثَلَةُ مَفْرُوضَةٌ

    "And when you are greeted with a greeting, then respond with better than it or return it." Meaning, when a Muslim gives Salaam to you, then return it with a greeting better than the one he had given, or return it with the same greeting he had given. Increasing upon the greeting (i.e. greeting better than you had been greeted) is Mandoob (recommended), but returning the greeting is Mafroodh (obligatory)." [Tafseer ibn Katheer.]
