|About As-Salaam (216)|
|It is reported by way of '`Abdillăh bin `Amr that a man asked the Prophet : Which of Islam is the best? He said: "To feed the food and to recite As-Salăm upon whom you know and whom you don't know."
Agreed upon by Bukhări and Muslim. Al-Albăni included this hadeeth in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #153.
|The Messenger of Allah said, "You shall not enter Heaven (Al-Jennah) till you have faith, and you do not have faith till you love one another, shall
I not guide you upon something if you do it you wil love one another? Spread(231) As-Salăm
among you." |
(231) Meaning greet one another with this greeting. It is a supplication for the peace,
mercy, and blessings of Allah.
Reported by Muslim, and is #154 in The Authentic of Good Sayings.
|About As-Salaam (218)|
|`Ammăr bin Yăsir said: "Three qualities! Whoever acquires them then he has acquired faith: the quality of exacting justice from one's self(232), and to offer As-Salăm to the world(233), and to spend [give charitable
gifts in Allah's cause] in spite of a barely sufficient sustenance [poverty]." |
(232) In Dr. Nuhammad Muhsin Khan's translation of Saheeh 'Al-Bukhări this was rendered
as "To treat others as one likes to be treated by others." The Bukhări translation seems to impart some meaning to what we
have mentioned above. People usually seek to exact justice from others; however, when one seeks to exact justice from himself,
he is seeking to be juste in his dealing with others as he would like them to be when dealing with him. A person with this
quality seems likely to admit his own faults and always seeks to treat people with fairness even if it does not seem to be
in his favor. Of course such action is in his true favor because it is an act of obedience to The Creator Who has commanded
us to be juste.
(233) Meaning those that you know and those that you do not.

|`Imran bin Husayn said: A man came to the Prophet and said: 'As-salămu `alaykum, |
so he replied then he sat down, and then the Prophet said "Ten." then another came along and said 'As-salămu `alaykum wa rahmatullăh,
so he replied, then he sat down, and then he said: "Twenty." Then another came along and said: 'As-salămu
`alaykum wa rahmatullăh wa barakătuhu,
, so he replied, then he sat down, and then he said: "Thirty."
At-Tirmithi said it was comely. Al-Albăni agreed, and said that so did Al-Bayhaqi, and Al-Hăfith Ibn Hajar. Al-Albăni included

Authentic of Good Sayings as #157
|About As-Salaam (221)|
|It is reported that the Prophet said: "It would suffice a group that is passing by, that one of them says 'As-Salăm, and it would suffice those sitting down,
that one of them replies." |
Reported by 'Abu Dăwood. Al-Albăni said it was comely, that Ahmed, and al-Bayhaqi also reported it, and that there was
some weakness in it, but that it had testimonials that strengthened it. Al-Albăni included this hadeeth in The Authentic
of Good Sayings as #158.
|About As-Salaam (222)|
|Anas said: "The Prophet passed by some boys playing, and greeted them with As-salăm." |

|About As-Salaam (223)|
|The Messenger od Allah said: "When one of you reaches a seated gathering place, then let him petition Salăm, then if it becomes him to sit, let
him sit. Then when he gets up to leave, let him petition Salăm, for the first one is not more deserved that the final one."

|It is reported about Abi Hurayrata that he said: If one of you meets his brother then let him petition peace upon him, then, if a tree, a wall, or a stone should
come between them let him petition peace upon him again upon meeting him. |
'Al-`Adawee said this was reported by `Abu-Dăwood on page 381 of volume 5. He said it was sound, due to a very similar
hadeeth which was reported by Ibn As-Sunni in 'Al-Yawm was-Laylah as #245. These two are of completely different chains
and each serves as a testimonial for the other making it sound. Further testimonial is found for this hadeeth in #1011 in
