smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad, while early he was happy he may or praises you to Allah, and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and upon all those who follow His guidance, who follow in his way, we follow his son and his methodology, his creed until the last day, respected brothers and sisters in Islam. Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh and well, a very warm welcome to you all. Today inshallah Medina, we are going to look at another book that emammal now we are AHIMA would love to Allah included in his book, reassign him guardians of the
righteous. Now, even though he
has dedicated a book which he has entitled keytab keytab of Ceylon. So, what he meant well no, he has been doing or has done in his book is he has the book of etiquette many manners. So in this in this book, he has many chapters pertaining to etiquettes regarding greetings in Islam
and so how am i is that really is is a way of life and Islam is a comprehensive it contains a comprehensive system on how to live our day to day lives. Now, we find some canola that I don't believe that there's any substitute. I don't believe that there is any substitute
for the estimate greeting. Now the Islamic reading contains the word Salaam and Salah means peace. And that's why many people
when talking about Islam, they say that Islam is a peaceful religion and that's Subhanallah we see that in the very in the very greeting and how we greet one another a Solomonic
which means peace beyond to you. Now remember no we,
he, he, in the first chapter that he mentioned, he says Babel fuckness salaam will ambry be F sharp e ob F sharp, he says the excellence of giving currency to salutations okay. So what he begins he begins by
mentioning some area from the poor and regarding this topic, Allah soprano was either in sort of a note in verse 27 He says, Yeah, you have Edina amanu lack of Hulu tan, Avaya booty compacta destiny. So what you send me more either as Neha Allah subhana wa Taala says, are you who believe and to not the houses other than your own? until you have asked permission and greeted those in them that he mentions another area? And he says for either the Halton booth and personally mohyla and fusi come in in the LA he mo Baraka compa Allah azza wa jal says but when you enter the houses greet one another with a greeting from Allah azza wa jal In other words, say a Salam why they say I set out
why they can bless it and could now in another verse other than soldier knew that previous verse was found in 61 now is suited and we said, Allah soprano who was out and it says, What is a four year term?
With a hatin for how you be accent I mean how I will do that when you are greeted with a greeting greet in return with what is better than eight or at least return it equally. Okay, so here if you are greeted with a greeting according to this area, if someone greets you with a greeting then return the greeting like for like okay, well actually he says he says we're in the computer here for high ups and I mean have returned the greeting with a better greeting, a better greeting.
And then he goes on and he says I will do or at the very least return the same greeting. So there's a command here from ally xojo to return the greeting whether you returned the greeting with a better greeting or whether it is simply just returning the greeting
now here mmm uno Rahim Allah to Allah He includes a number of ahaadeeth a number of traditions, prophetic traditions, regarding greetings in Islam. Now, the first Hadith is the hadith of
Abdullah bin armor class or the loved one humor,
and then asked the prophet SAW love while he was selling he said you're a sort of love or he asked for services are you?
Are you slightly higher? He said which act in Islam is best to supermodel so however we're always asking about the best of the best. It's always asking about what is better.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam guide a
buyer that you give
that you give food now giving food here of course it's in reference to giving to the poor and to the needy to those in need of food and drink. It says talk remote was Salam Kraus Salah Mr. Gibson. Okay, what was Allah, Allah, Allah, that woman Willem tarrif and then she gave salon you say a Solomonic home
to a person whether you know them or you don't know them. Now this hadith is found in Bukhari Muslim. So Islam teaches us that with regards to our salutation or our greeting, that is only extended to those that we know that even if, if somebody is a stranger, a Muslim stranger that you come past in the masjid or at home or at some Islamic function that you say as salaam widen COMM And it's very disheartening, especially when we live in the West, and we find that we'd be in a shopping center, for example. And there might be a Muslim working behind the counter or a Muslim that works, walks by or walks past you. And people just don't say a ceremony. You know, it's really important
that we do
say a Salam Alaikum as per this Hadith, knowledge, knowledge, those that we know, but those that we don't know. And that's what Islam is telling us what's wrong with the process lm is telling us in this Hadith, now, when you do this, what's gonna happen it's going to
you know, it's going to generate mutual love, mutual love, and it's going to remove hatred. Okay, when you when you do that, and Ill will from the hearts. Okay, so how do you learn for this blessing of a salon?
Now, this next Hadith really
sheds light as to the origin of a Santa Monica. When did Assalamu alaykum originate? Does anybody know?
It's actually before Ibrahim alayhis salam
and my name is Salim.
In the Hadith that is found
in Bukhari and Muslim it's Hadith, the loved one who Allah
He said that Allah messages for Salim said that when Allah azza wa jal created the ad and when Eliza Jen created our father, our forefather, Adam alayhis, salaam in English Adam, he said, he said to him, go and salute the company of angels who are seated there, and then listen to what they're going to say in reply to your greetings, because that will be your salutation and that of your offspring. So Allah is telling Adam, what you're about to hear is going to be the salutation, the salon of you and your offspring.
So, Adam alayhis salam, he said to the angels As salam o Alaikum Bismillah, Allah azza wa jal inspired Adam. So Adam says As salam o Alaikum, which means Peace be to you. So the melodica the angels reply assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah they added warahmatullah so PHP to you and the mercy of Allah be upon you. So, adding in reply to him, what about Allah, the mercy of Allah to his salutation.
So, again, we find that the origin of Assam Aleykum is not limited to the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is not limited to the fuck to his followers or to the owner of Mohammed Salah Hari he was selling.
Now we are going to learn that you may add to As salam aleikum wa rahmatullah. One edition is a Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh wabarakatuhu wabarakatuh so you can add Baraka to who and his blessings. So Pamela as salaam alaikum peace
Speak to you what McCullough and the mercy of Allah wa barakato and his blessings is a form of
when you say Peace be to you, you are asking Allah to give that person peace and Rodman and Baraka and blessing. So each time you're saying it, it's like you actually you are actually making dua for that person. You're, you're invoking, or advocating, to Allah azza wa jal supplicating to Allah subhanaw taala to
have mercy upon this person and blessing and Barak and Baraka.
we also learn in the next Huggies,
the hadith of Al Bara, even as it
or the Allahu anhu matter is also found in the fighting and Muslim. What we learn in this hadith is that Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he commanded us to do seven things. So we're going to learn about the rights in this hadith of Muslims, the rights Muslims have rights
over you. So the first one he mentioned, was visiting the sick, visiting the sick in a slum, if somebody is you, you should make every effort to visit them to call them and that will instill happiness, and it actually expedites the recovery process. Okay.
The next one is to follow to follow the funeral to follow the funeral. This is the right of the Muslim This is what we call a follow up phase. As long as some Muslims are doing it, other Muslims are exempt. Otherwise, if nobody's following the funeral procession and performing the janazah prayer, and then then the Muslim community is at sin.
The next one
is invoke the mercy of Allah upon the one who sneezes so when somebody sneezes, you say to them, your harmonica, and they say and Hamdulillah, you say to them, you have harmonica moment, may Allah have mercy upon you.
The next one is number four, to support the weak, supporting the week number five, to help the oppressed.
Okay, and that's one of the prophets I send them. You know, he said, He's not one of us, who, you know, spends the night
and he does not have any concern for the affairs of the Muslims. So Muslims are one body, okay, I live one body, whereby when one of the body parts, finds
and feels the hardship and feels the pain, the rest of the body also suffers and feels this and has this sleeplessness and and not being able to sleep. So we have to be concerned always with regards to what's happening to our Muslim Brethren, wherever they may be in the world, whatever language they speak, whatever color of the skin is, we are one oma, we are one body, Islam is against, you know, racial differences. And you know, this person is, is black, or this person is white of this person is Arab, this person is not Arab. He's got this color, skin color, color skin, this is irrelevant, and nonsensical. To enter into this sort of discussion or talk, and non Islamic now. And
then he mentioned and forgive currency, to the greeting of peace, and other words, to return the salon. And the next one, number seven, to help those who swear to do something to keep their own. So if somebody has made an oath to do something, then to try and help them fulfill the oath.
And again, the fulfillment of, of this hadith
nurtures, of course, mutual love, and a sense of cohesion, a sense of cohesion, and feelings of respect. And that's what Islam is out to do. The next Hadith
howdy algo. Wherever Kela Wang Hua that we find is Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, let
me know that you will not enter Jannah until you believe you will not enter agenda until you believe. And then he goes on and he mentions one of the characteristics. He says one to me, no had to have boo and you are not true believers. Until you love
one another, okay. And you and you will by no means believe until you love one another. And then he says our lucam Allah say in his effort to move to habit, he says Shall I inform you of something which if you do, you will love one another. And then he says a shoe sell shoe a seller, if
assuming spread, spread, a seller is the piece meaning the greeting, okay? And a lot of Allah subhanho wa Taala His name is SLM.
Okay, one of Allah outside his name is a salon. So they will learn from this hadith is a prerequisite for the entry to gentlemen to paradise.
Now this next Hadith
we learned about four traits a Muslim should observe. Now here up to Allah, even Salaam Fabiola one who said I heard Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, Oh people, he said, Yeah, I yohannes people. Okay, and he said f shoe salad. spritz lm, spritz the lamb amongst yourselves. Okay, what time and feed, meaning feed the poor and the needy, what
was saloon our hand and maintain the ties or strengthen the ties of kinship? You know, with your relatives with your family members, make sure the ties are strong. We'll say lieu of ham was fun Lu, one nurse union and pray when the people are sleeping, I would pray at night. Make sure you pray some sort of prayer at night to head judoka Yan. And then he concludes by saying for total agenda to be silent, you will enter Jenna peacefully, you will enter Jannah you will enter Paradise in peace and this hadith is found in sunon utter misery. So for important traits if chef,
a salon spreading the salon, feeding the poor, maintaining the ties of kinship and praying during the night. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the strength and zeal and energy to fulfill these beautiful traits.
The next Hadees is the hadith of profile, even obey even tabula one who he said I used to visit Abdullah even Rama Rama won the famous sahadi the famous companions son of America or the loved one whom
he says in the morning he said visit him in the morning and accompany him to the market they used to go to the market to the soup
and after law of its salutations of peace to everyone he met on the way be they sellers of pity goods traders or poor people. And then one day when I came to him he asked me to accompany him in the market. I said to him what's the point? You go into the market when you don't you don't sell you don't ask about articles and you don't offer a price with them. No, you sit down with the company and the people. Let us sit down here and talk all right. So then Abdullah even even Omar regular man who man he said
Apple button poppin is the belly this this person have to find this harder to find even obec he he had a bit of a belly tea. So he's he's calling me. Now here this is rather messy. This is permissible if the person finds no offense. You know, some people that have might be called skinny, or you know, or my mind that if they don't mind being called by a certain you know, nickname, then there's no harm for them. I said but if a person is offended, or hurts their feelings, you're not allowed to use a name that insults them or or hurt their feelings in any way.
So he says to him, oh, Apple button, you know, he says we go to the market to greet everyone we meet and sort of delivered if that's what you wanted to do just go and spread the center
spread the cell and
the next the next chapter that email will know about him have a lot of data included. He entitles that babble pay fear to sell n words to be used for offering salutations. Now here the in the opening words will be met remember no he says
is recommended for the one offering salutations to say Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. The reply is while ecomo Salah warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
So the only addition to the response is the word and the word means and and life enter you
now here is included the Hadees
that is found in Sudan Abby, the wound and Sudan a Timothy. That's the hadith of Emraan even
A man can have a loved one Homer, a man came to us messages of a loved one he was silent. And he said as salaam alaikum Salaam Alaikum. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded to his to his salon, and the man sat down and after he sat down the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, 10 he said, 10 meaning the man has earned the merit of 10 good deeds 10 good acts.
And then another man came in and he said a salaam aleikum, wa rahmatullah and the professor llamada. He was Salam responded, and the man set and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, 20
In other words, he's earned 20 rewards. Then a third man came in and he said, I said, Mohali, Kumar rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
And then the prophet SAW Selim responded, and he sat down. And then the prophet SAW Allah what he was saying, having said that, so and he said 30
so therefore what we learned from this hadith is the more you add to the greeting, the more reward
so don't limit yourself to always Assalamu alaikum when we get back when some people like space day they say Salaam Salaam or they just send an email or a text the lamps try.
be lazy when you're texting, okay, it's okay. Exercise You know, you're always you're always exercising your fingers exercising, you can live by exercising them a little bit more you get Hassan Hassan salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. You know, so you get 3030 has an ad right there and then look, it's locked in Sharla.
The next Hadees that he mentions is Hadith Arusha. minyama Allah
Subhana Allah the prophet SAW said that he said to her, she says that the process will have said to her in this honey fairy spendable Korean Muslim
Khalid yasumasa, Salah has
a new Yahoo la que cela
je Bri Lu la ke.
He said this is jabril Jabberwocky was present as he used to be present with the prophesised lm a time when he's teaching him other times and who is conveying Salaam to you? So what was her response to debrief to the gate to Gabriel to the angel? She said, Carla cool to ya. He's salam wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And, and peace be in peace and blessings be upon him. So So Pamela, one of the things that we learn from this hadith is not only the manner of the salon, that how, in this authentic hadith that is found on the Hylian Muslim, we have gibril, the Messenger of Allah, the greatest of the angels, sending their peace, and they sell them to show the loved one. Whilst we
have some people out there who call themselves Muslims, and they curse on one in 1 million Irish. They curse her and they say bad things about her. Well, you have to be led. We have gibreel one of the greatest creations of Allah azza wa jal giving this Salaam
to Asia and how could it be that the prophet SAW Selim is married to Ayesha and Allah azza wa jal is the one who showed her him in his dream to marry her. How could it be that people have the audacity to speak about the honor of the prophets of Allah, Allah himself? The mother of the believers is
one of the main narrators of Heidi, one of the most narrators of Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said this habit can be used against these people who speak out
Against Ayesha Raja lavon.
The next honey had his anus had his anus. And its fountains, the hippo, Heidi, the prophet SAW Selim is to repeat his words three times, so that the meaning there would be fully understood. And whenever he came upon a gathering of people,
he would greet them and he will would would repeat the salutation three times. So sometimes what the prophet SAW Selim used to do, if he came across, came across a gathering of Muslims. He would initiate the seller, but he will actually say Assalamualaikum, three times why. Prasanna was a very considerate person. And he always wanted people not to have any bad opinion of him. And that's what stem teaches us. So what he would do by state Assalamu alaikum, salam, Aleykum, Selam Aleykum. If anybody missed it, the first time there was a chance to hear him the second time, or the third time, but the person who missed it the second of the person, they missed the first or second time, and he
heard it the third time. That way, there's no excuses anymore, that no one can accuse and say, I promise I never said anything. They said it three times to make sure that he said it enough times for people to have heard the greeting. So there's nothing wrong if you come to a greeting a gathering of people, and you sort of you know, it's a big gatherings I said, I'm walaikum Salam aleykum, Samarra, come here, you can actually do this, okay, just to make sure that everybody has heard you.
And that's the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The next Hadith is
basically teaching us some another manner. And that is, let's say there are some people sleeping or some people awake.
Again, we see the consideration of Professor seller in this next Hadees Hadees, that are the llamando as part of a long happy, he said, we used to reserve for last messy saw salon, he shared the meal. And he would come at night and offer salutations in such a manner as it not disturbed those asleep, and was heard only by those who were awake. In fact, a lot of messages Allah while he was selling came and offered Salutations, as usual. So even if some people were asleep, he would still come and offer the silent, but he made sure not to bother those who were asleep.
The next Huggy
is found as soon as a telemovie. The previous Harris was a Muslim.
This is Heidi here is by a smart binge eat with your loved one who is
the daughter of your zero your loved one who among us messages, Allah wa sallam, he passed through the masjid one day through the mosque. And there was a group of women, there was a group of women, about 10 of them in about 10 of them sitting in the message in the mosque.
And he raised his hand to offer the salutation because he was at a distance.
in Islam, we know that it's actually not allowed, it's actually not allowed to offer a salad by the gesture of the hand.
Okay, from a distance that's forbidden in Islam, it's only allowed if you also utter the words with it. So you know, so people go like this and they give their like salad from a distance. You know, he can't do this in Islam, unless you say like Santa Monica, you actually out of the woods with the gesture. Okay.
Now, secondly, what we learned from this hadith Is there a last messages he was sending them, he could greet women because he was stillness and permanently stood under the protection of Allah azza wa jal.
So it would not be allowed for other men. To do this. Now, there is some rules of the road and may have similar conditions, when giving celebs to the opposite gender.
But even in this Hadith, can be carried into effect in case any one feels that no temptation and evil will be involved for example, then you can do it so for example, and then can greet an aged and respectable woman and an older woman, you can bridge her. There's no fear of any fitna or temptation to come about.
But in the case, for example of younger women, then that wouldn't be permissible, but we'll talk about the conditions in a moment inshallah.
Now, the next study study included
It's also part of a long hobbies. It's Heidi Abou
and sorry, who Jamie Adela one who I saw Allah smashes ourselves
and and said he said to him, I they said we are sutala this person is for the process of selling instead of saying Assalamu alaikum Okay, he said I like a seller we are a school of law. So the process lm said do not say I like assalamu This is the salutation to the dead. We can't say I like a salad. You say a Salaam Alaikum Salam Ra.
The next chapter that includes in the book of salutations or Kitab was Salam. Ala Moana, we include etiquette of offering salutations. Now, pretty much what we're going to learn here is who initiates the cylinder, who initiates the cylinder. Now, we have many scenarios, you can have a young person and an old person coming together who offers cylinders. You can have a person who is riding in a car or on a vehicle or mounted on an animal and they come across somebody standing who offers to sell them in this scenario scenario.
You can have a person who is sitting down and some other people walking past who offers to sell him here. So there are different situations so Pamela Islam, our comprehensive dean of comprehensive religion has gone to the extent of actually stating and breaking it down for us who have set out to do so let's see this Howdy. Howdy.
We find them and we find that in Sahih Muslim,
the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam said a rider shall or should salute a pedestrian.
Okay, so if you are the one that's riding, you're in the car, and you see a pedestrian yoga one should say assalamu alikum first. If you own a horse, you own a camel. Whatever means of travel you are on your on the train, you're on the bus to see someone they are the ones that initiate initiate the rider initiates the sale and the greeting to the pedestrian to the person on the road and then the program send them he said I pedestrian should salute one who is sitting so now you're sitting on the park bench and and somebody goes past the passer by is the one who gives salam to the one who is sitting not the one who was sitting give xlm to the one who is passing by
that's another manner
and then the prophet SAW Selim goes on and he says and a small group should salute a large group of people so there's a small group a large group which one says the first smaller one to the larger
important and it's polite manners and etiquette there is another narration in Buhari that adds and allows messages are seldom said
was the root RL career and the young should create the elderly. The young should greet the elderly. Okay, so it is them generally speaking, okay. It all depends on the situation that you're in as to who initiated the salon
the next Heidi
basically talks about okay let's say two people come together
the better of the two is always the one who initiates the salon first and that goes to show that that person okay is a is a person who is most likely Yanni stronger in faith.
The prophet SAW Selim he said in the Hadith that is found
that was the MMO Nebula Camelot Allah included
in Abu Dhabi, they spend in Abu Dawood
Hades Abbey oma.
He mentioned that Allah species or Salim said the person nearest to Allah is one who is the first to offer the segmentation
and in the Hadith a stands similar Timothy Allah specify Salaam was asked,
miss our last messenger when two persons meet who should say salutations first, and the last messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the person nearest to Allah. In other words, one who is more obedient and therefore closer to Allah will say a Salaam first
This is something to remember when it comes to who initiates the selling. So we said the rider to the pedestrian, the pedestrian to the one who was sitting the young to the old, the small group to the large group.
Removed move on now to another chapter. Mm hmm we rahama Hello Tyler he included the excellence of saluting the acquaintance repeatedly. Now here he mentions howdy Musil. Salafi. This is a hadith whereby there was a man who entered the masjid.
he prayed, he prayed, he prayed to God, but he prayed to him poorly. And so it became known as Hades and we'll see and we'll see salata The one who prayed poorly. He didn't fulfill all the requirements, the conditions of solid. Now this honey set is found in Bukhari and Muslim, it's the hadith of Abu Salah
he came up to a last message I said to him, and he paid sanitation to him. And I'm not supposed to just Arsalan responded to the sanitation and said, he said,
Go back and repeat your salad because you have not offered your salad properly. So he gave me salad, the processor and responded to the salad. But then he said to him, go back and pray again you ever prayed properly? Okay, so then he came back again offered the salad as he had prayed before I came to Las Vegas, Arsalan and he said saluted him. And the prophet SAW Selim responded to him, the same words, he says, Go back. So when it comes Salah, go back, and repeat your solid four you have not prayed, otherwise, you haven't prayed properly. So you kept on doing this three times. So what we learned from this is you can come back and say Assalamu alaikum, again and again as the man is. But
if your select is not correct, also to redo your select if it's missing one of the or can, or one of the big, bad or the solid. Okay.
Let's go now to the next honey. That is interesting. Because let's say for example, you are walking with somebody. And as you're walking, maybe took two different paths to go around the tree or around a structure, maybe some little mountain or little
building, whatever it is, and then you meet again, the sooner is to say assalamu alikum once again.
And this is based on the Huggy fairy spells in Abu Dhabi.
And it's the hadith of Abu hurayrah Rama Mohan who
the prophet SAW Selim said when one of you meets a brother, in other words, if he should salute him, then if a tree or a wall or a stone intervenes means comes in meaning it comes in between you which interface between them and then he meets him again, he should salute him. So say a samurai they come again once he disappeared from each other.
The next chapter mmm now we Rahim. Allah Allah included is the excellence of greeting at the time of entry into the house. And we did speak about the area in the opening chapter, but the Hadith he mentions here is Hadith. Ns even Malik radi Allahu Allahu Allah that is found in Sinhala, Timothy
apostle and he said his son, he said to him six ns, he said to him to his son, when you enter your house, say Assalamu alaykum to your family, for it will be a blessing both to you and to your family. So when you say a Salam or Aleikum, it's a blessing for you and a blessing to your family. So, unfortunately, many people many Muslims, really, they
they feel belittled, I think, maybe that's the word to use. But, you know, they don't say Assalamualaikum they might say you know, and it will be of the best breeding better than Hi. You know, how are you all Good morning. Good afternoon, good evening, or should I say in anyhow or
or, you know, some of buddy
What am I say?
oh, and what is what else is the bond shoe on swag? You know, if you want to say these things, look these things, there's nothing wrong with them. But after you say snrm why they go and then go into your you know, your hoo, ha
In a greetings okay
inshallah I mean I was just sort of showing off their my some of my greetings but that's that's about all I know I think
so yeah, so inshallah tada
let's adhere to the Islamic greeting.
Now the next hugging the next chapter is Babel salami and other Serbian, saluting the children saluting the children and others for their loved one who have done the rights that he passed by some children and saluted them then he said a last messenger used to do the same. So when you go past children give you a sellout of children. This is very, very important. You come across a group of children here into the habit even if you don't know them, Solomonic come, you know, show them and it's still happiness into their hearts.
So when you do that you actually not only are you pleasing their hearts, but also your shame. You actually show that you're modest person that you are a humble person. You don't have any pride. stem is against pride.
It's also of course, rewarding because you're following in the center of Mohammed sort of love it. He was setting it.
He does have a chapter here saluting one's wife and other women. That's why I chose to share those conditions with you now.
He does mention that Howdy.
Howdy ismat. Vinci osito, the Allahu anhu. Man.
The last message you saw Selim, he passed by passed by us, when we were with a party of women and he saluted us he gave his salon to get to women. So again, the permissibility of men to great women and vice versa is with the condition that there's no fear of any sort of fitna, or temptation. It can't lead to anything that's unlawful. Now, so what Matt said, number one,
a young woman is forbidden to greet men and to respond to their greeting. That's one opinion. Okay, one body of opinion, the old man had mentioned that I you know, basically it's not, it's not the right thing to do for a young woman to go and give salon to, to greet men or to even respond to their greeting, or if she does so.
She does in absolute modesty in absolute modest way. Maybe very low voice can hardly be heard.
Another, another condition, a group of women, or an hour or an old woman are allowed to greet men and to respond to men's greetings. Men are also allowed to greet a group of women or an old woman. So with it again, there's no sickness, when there's a group, you're not really addressing one person specifically here.
Another another condition number three, a man on his own is not allowed to grieve a young woman and you're on your own you see a woman you kind of set them on a comb Hawaii.
Now of course, if there's if you're in a business situation, you know, you're at the counter. So Monaco and Acadia has to be professional. It has to be business life. Okay.
Another condition, a man on his own is allowed to greet to greet a group of women. And then what is a group of women like the problem the salon is doing here? It's saying our Somali pastime, there's no harm
that could emerge from this inshallah.
So, this is something that the Roma has spoken about, okay. And Allah, Allah, Allah and Allah Subhana huzzah, Allah knows best. Now greeting the non Muslims, he has a chapter, he says, greeting the non Muslims and pro he vision of taking an initiative.
Now here he mentions the Hadith that is found in Sahih, Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, let me yahuda while I'm nesara salam,
he said, Do not salute the Jews and the Christians before they salute you. So what he's saying here is let them start to sell and not you because Islam is superior as a faith to Judaism and Christianity.
Islam prides itself on its belief, and we believe without a shadow of doubt, that the only acceptable faith the only acceptable Deen and religion to allies the way
Islam, which is the religion of all of the prophets and all of the messengers, no exceptions Islam is the religion of Jesus Raisa. Islam is the religion of Moosa is them is the religion of Ibrahim, it's the religion of Adam. It's the it's the way of life of all of the profits and all the messages that were commissioned to mankind. Okay, so, Islam is about submission and surrender and obedience to Allah subhanahu wa Island.
So, this Hadees this this hadith shows the dignity of Muslims. So, let them begin the Salah. Now, if they say Assalamualaikum and you ensure that they said Assalamu alaikum to you, do you say y equals center? And the answer is yes, you do say y equals ln and you can say y then you can say y equals ln
B because Allah subhanaw taala as we said in the previous in the opening one of the opening area, one of the opening verses, either for you to be the hygiene for how you be x and I mean, if you are greeted with a greeting, then respond, reply with a better greeting. And it didn't discriminate between Muslim or non non Muslim. Once you have been given that greeting, respond with a better greeting or at the very least you can just return the greeting Hello, hello. Hi. Hi.
Okay, this next Huggies, Huggies and as
I was listening to saw, Selim said when the People of the Book salute you, so when they say and what he meant here, what by saluting you is when they say as Sam Wiley, because at the time of the process,
the way many normal surgeries to greet him, they used to say to him as more of a co meaning test be upon you
say they play with the words a semi liquid sounds like a semi liquid. So when they say a Samar Echo, you respond by saying why they come and be upon you to meaning you're going to try to, you know, so.
I guess you know,
we see some very important matters here because
we don't go more than that. Don't go getting all abusive, and,
you know, violent and aggressive, follow us. Repeat it, repeat the script and back to you, same to you.
In the next Huggies, Hades, Osama bin Zayed are the loved one who Allah specific tell him he passed by a mixed company of people, which included Muslims polytheists, meaning Muslims,
and Jews and Jews. And he gave them the salutation of peace. Otherwise, he said Assalamu alaikum. So
if there's a mixture gathering or a mixed assembly, okay, of Muslims, and non Muslims, then one should add a greeting of peace
to it, but consider Muslims, as once addresses are sort of addressees. So when you're doing it, so when you're saying a Salam or a comb, your main intention is the Muslims that are present. Okay. So there's no hands, there's a mixture, who instead of saying Hi, everyone, Hello, good morning, ceremony calm if there are Muslims.
And we said that there's no harm in responding to the greeting of a non Muslim, if he if you know that he's saying assalamu Assalamu
Okay. The next chapter, he says here, excellence of greeting on arrival and departure. So, when is
the when one of you arrives in a gathering, he should offer salutation to those who are already there and he should also do so when he intends to depart. The first act of greeting is not more meritorious than the last. So when you come into a gathering says Salaam Alaikum. And when you come to leave that gathering, it is equally important to say as salaam wa Alaykum as you were exiting as this Hadith, and soon there would have been alluded to
the next chapter he says seeking permission to enter in other words to enter somebody's house and the man is related to eat. Now
he has the hadith of Abu Musa al Sharia law one that our last messages are solid he said permission is to be so thrice meaning three times. If it is accorded, you may enter
Otherwise go back, Buhari Muslim. So when you come knocking on somebody's door, you knock once and you wait,
you look again and you wait, you know, a third time and you wait. And even if you know that somebody is inside, and you can hear noises or sounds, you need to walk away, you need to back off, okay? Because they don't want, they don't want to welcome you in for whatever reason. And you should always have a positive and good opinion of others. Maybe there's something that I want you to see, maybe they're not in the right in a state that maybe they're very ill. So the actor and the athlete is to not if you really, really want to make sure they've heard your knocks. Not once where a period of time.
Not again, not a third time. Okay?
The next Hadith
the prophet SAW Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, seeking permission to enter meaning to enter somebody's house has been prescribed in order to restrain the eyes. In other words, from looking at something we are not supposed to look at. That's why you're not first not before you enter not before you enter
the next Hadees then mmm No, we included is the hadith of
kill even an Hanban
probably a lot one who I visited Allah specify salad. And I entered his house without seeking permission.
So he ended up also selling his house without any permission without asking for permission. So he said go back and say a Salaam Alaikum May I come in?
He said, Go back your Jaffa Assalamu alaikum
Should I enter? So you have to seek permission you can't just go and enter? No way people do this so I can just come in. So can I come in? That's another etiquette another very important manner. Now, another very important manner and the amount of no matter how about Humboldt Allah he called a chapter here seeking permission to enter by telling one's name. Now here, he's mentioned a number of games but the one that I want to share with you or two that I'll share with you is one of them is spendable highly Muslim. come handy.
She said I went to Las Vegas Arsalan who was taking a bath while Fatima was screening him. He asked. He said man has he fficult to go to Anna Mohammed. She said I am Mohammed. She said who she is another Hadith that is founder Buhari Muslim. Howdy. Allahu anhu. I went to Las Cruces Assalam and knocked at the door with a view to seeking permission he asked. He said manda other words Jani. Who is there?
to Anna? She said me for it. She said me. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Anna Anna.
I was like, This is me. Me. It happens a lot people knock on the door. And then
who is it? Who's there? I mean,
who are you?
And how much sometimes especially like even if you come in to your parents have you know mom and dad sometimes you know, your voice is the same as all your brothers and sisters your sound the same today? Okay, so say Anna, Anna Hamad Anna Fatima You know, this is the son to actually mention your name. Say something say who you are, identify yourself.
And especially if you're a stranger, especially if you're a stranger.
The next the next Hadith he talks about he goes into a chapter, the chapter on saying and handelman sneezing so it goes into the etiquettes of sneezing. And he mentioned some of that I had it insured. If you sneeze you say and hamdulillah he prays a lot Allah and you say praise is to Allah and the person who hears you, he says your hammock Allah may Allah have mercy upon you. And then your response is yes, the common law who will use the
common law will use the whole band I think that is the most authentic response. No remixes plays in a cleaner way, the Kamala team and all these different races.
mixes of the
ham, the less efficient for us is the wording of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, what to say to non Muslims who sneeze. Now there is a hadith collected by Abu Dawood and a tirmidhi. Hadith, Abu Musa della Wang who the Jews used to intentionally sneeze in the Presence of Allah subhana wa sallam
hoping that he would say to them yahama como la, they want they wanted the process and to say hello Kamala, because
when you say your homework Allah, it means by Allah have mercy upon you. So the Jews would sneeze deliberately selected from the prophet SAW Selim.
the prophets Allah Allah, but he would respond with your your hammer common law, who will you stay for back home? He would say may Allah have mercy on you, but also better your affairs? Better your ways or amend your ways when they would do that? So the sooner is to say to them, you have come from Allah was there for better calm not to say when they just said hum akula Okay.
The next Howdy. It's about the etiquette of yawning. Pamela is fam has not left any stone unturned.
This fix Howdy, howdy abou sorry, the one who Allah says Allah said, when one yawns he will put his hand over his mouth.
Else the devil will enter the devil will enter the ship and can enter through this passage and during this act, because this is an active, please check on the show. yawning is a sign of weakness and of laziness and fatigue. Okay.
The next next chapter, the excellence of handshaking at the time of meeting. Now here he has the hadith of Abou hotfile Academy acaba de la who are asked ns did the companions of Allah's Messenger casilla used to shake hands? He said, Yes.
So, the sooner is to say to shake hands, and to say Assalamu alaikum. So when you're shaking hands, and you're saying Assalamu alaikum.
The next hubby actually teaches us who were the first people to introduce handshaking. Does anyone know where handshaking came from? The handshake?
Yes, very good. Mashallah.
And a circle of one who narrated that when the people of Yemen when the people of Yemen they came Allah Mr. Salim said the people of Yemen have visited you. They are the first to introduce the tradition of handshaking people of Yemen. So give it to the Yemenis. Okay.
This Hadith is bound to is found in Abu Dawood.
So the process tell him he actually approved of this, he gave his club he gave his approval of this fullness of handshaking that is accompanied with a center.
The next Hadith
basically teaches us that when you are shaking hands, you sins are falling from you and are forgiven are being wiped out for as long as you're holding hands. That's why the next time you hold the hands with someone who's a learned person or a scholar or they hold your hand for a while because they know the sooner Okay, Hades Elvira
Allah wa sallam said to Muslims will not meet and shake hands without having their sins forgiven by Allah before they depart, the habit is founded, so none of it would. So Allah forgives, of course, the minuses. The next heavy is to do with some manners. You know, in some cultures, they actually bow You know, when you come to give a greeting, they bow. Okay. Now, what does Islam have to say about bowing and greeting?
he says, as we find a certain activity, and then as a last message, as I said, when when a man meets a brother or a friend, should he bow to him? He said, No. The man asked whether he should embrace and kiss him. Now here, kiss him, many kiss his hand embrace him, he kisses him. Okay. So the proper size Teller, he said, No. And he asked whether he should hold his hand and shake it or sell them. He said, Yes.
Now, this hadith when he spoke about bowing it Some scholars have gotten into a little bit of the
Section of the word boundary. Because bowing normally means, you know, to go all the way if you think about the core, okay?
And Rico normally is really when you go in, falls away, but if some said, If you did like a little bit like that, that's fine, a little bit, that's fine. But if you go beyond the 45 degree angle, then you've gone too far. Some scholars willing to sort of talk. But if we look at the wording of this Hadith, he says bound, so it's better to avoid bowing altogether. And just to restrict to the salon and to the handshake. And Allah subhana wa, to Allah
Now for Shay for actually hugging. This is something you know, Muslims do a lot of hugging and kissing, you know.
And I think you know what I'm talking about here.
With regards to this, it shouldn't be done all the time.
The sooner or whatever it is, the correct manner is to do it. We haven't seen somebody for a long time. So if you haven't seen somebody for a long time, and you've you saw them for the first time, a long time. Yes, you can embrace them, kiss them, that's fine. We'll just an embrace without the kissing, that's fine. Or when they've come back from travel, that's fine. Okay, so we do learn some Heidi's allow this embracing, particularly on return from a journey or when two people haven't seen each other for a long time.
Another Hadith that I want to mention here is about smiling. And that's something that we should do more more of as Muslims. The promise is to live, he said, let me show you. wallow and Coco haka. be watching polio, he said, Do not disdain a good day, even if you're meeting your brother with a chief or face a smart what like very, very powerful. A smile is a curve that sits many things straight. Okay. And so we find that the prophet SAW Selim, he always smiled.
As for kissing children, this is another Hadith that he couldn't hear. And this is also very important. And Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows best and this brings us to the end of the chapter, or the book of Kitab to sell and the book of salutations. Next week. inshallah with Thailand, we look at the book of visiting the sick, and the etiquettes of visiting the sick and Allah Subhana hutan and is best for sallallahu wasallam Mahabharata and Amina Mohammed Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
