    What so as greeting?

    Report bad ads?

    So im a little confused.

    i recently converted to islam, and its fantastic so far. But im confused what to say?

    Until now i have said “ salam aleikum “ when greeting or aleikum salam, when someone greet me first.

    Is this wrong? No one have commented it so far though?

    Asalaamualaykum
    If you have reverted to Islam - please change your Profile identity to reflecting that you are Muslim. You have it set on "Christianity"

    Lets eradicate that confusion first shall we.

    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also explained the reward earned by the one who says salaam, as was reported by al-Nisaa’i in ‘Aml al-yawm wa’l-laylah (368) and al-Bukhaari in al-Adab al-Mufrad (586) and by Ibn Hibban (493). They reported from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that a man passed by the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) whilst he was sitting with some others, and said “Salaam ‘alaykum (peace be upon you).” The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “[He will have] ten hasanaat (rewards).” Another man passed by and said “Salaam ‘alaykum wa rahmat-Allaah (peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah).” The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “[He will have] twenty hasanaat.” Another man passed by and said “Salaam ‘alaykum wa rahmat-Allaahi wa barakaatuhu (peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah and His blessings).” The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “[He will have] thirty hasanaat.”

    The Islamic greeting has been shown in the sunnah and Qur'an. Giving "salaam" is the right of a Muslim, either to give or to receive it. It is obligatory to return the salaam, or for one person among a group to reply to it.

    When those who believe in Our Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) come to you, say: "Salamun 'Alaikum" (peace be on you); your Lord has written (prescribed) Mercy for Himself, so that if any of you does evil in ignorance, and thereafter repents and does righteous good deeds (by obeying Allah), then surely, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

    وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ قَوْلًا مِّمَّن دَعَا إِلَى اللَّـهِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا وَقَالَ إِنَّنِي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ
    ~ And who is better in speech than someone who calls to God, and acts with integrity, and says, “I am of those who submit”?

    Re: What so as greeting?

    The hadith stated above shows the number of deeds of greeting others with each way:
    As-salamu alaykum (peace be upon you)
    As-salamu alaykum wa rahmat-Allaah (peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah)
    As-salamu alaykum wa rahmat-Allaahi wa barakaatuhu (peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah and His blessings)

    The same goes for replying to someone. Regardless of which one of the 3 sayings the other person uses, the one replying will get the deeds according to which one he uses in reply.

    wa'alaikum as'Salaam (and peace be upon you)
    wa'alaikum as'Salaam wa rahmat-Allaah (and peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah)
    wa'alaikum as'Salaam wa rahmat-Allaahi wa barakaatuhu (and peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah and His blessings)

    Assalaamu 'alaykum

    You just need to get used to it. Make friends with local muslims, people you can meet on a daily basis, that's how I learned.
