    Lightbulb Sincerity in saying Salam

    Saying “Assalamu Alaikum” when you greet a fellow Muslim was a command of Nabi ﷺ. He also told us that it will grow love in our hearts for each other and our sins will be forgiven. Therefore, it is an act of worship. For any form of worship, sincerity is required. In Salam, sincerity can be defined as saying Salam to everyone you come across. To limit it to just the people you know is to resort this act of worship to a social, rather than a religious greeting. This happens when we lose focus of our ultimate goal – to please Allah. Thus, we pick and choose, opting to say Salam to greet friends but not the local musalli (brother at the Masjid) or other Muslims in our area. Or we walk right past other Muslims without saying a word. This is a sign of insincerity. Even if they are strangers to us, they are still our brothers and sisters in Islam. Thus, sincerity is to spread Salam to all and sundry, not just those we are familiar with.
    May Allah make us sincere, Aameen.

    Re: Sincerity in saying Salam

    As-Salaam alaykum,
    ...Indeed, what you observed above is on target... quite right. When we are truly at peace within ourselves, then we will be spreading that peace to others. This is spreading peace (Salaam) outwardly from within us-- for no one will love you except the one that you have given peace to in every every one of your/our states. We must believe and feel that both our existence and the existence of whom we greet with 'As-Salaam alaikum' are by Divine Cause... we exist at His Pleasure, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.
    Best Wishes.
