In the Hamdulillah, salat wa salam, O Allah, Allah Allah He was heavy human Allah.
I want to remind myself a new
mantra which is very small, but very important.
And that matter is a matter of Salah.
The word itself, the general translation, we do Salaam Alaikum, we say peace beyond you.
But the word Salam in Arabic or the translation of it,
in order to for example, salamati
or Amman has two meanings. One meaning and the more important in the first meaning is the meaning of safety and security
amongst the Mara chain among
facade canacona Salam teavana, II Farzana is Allah Gucci
as a result of this is peace. So therefore, Amman or Salam means safety, security,
lack of strife, lack of insecurity, lack of danger,
and therefore there is this
so that is why when you see a Salam alikoum
and we save these we are new peace is a result of all this of safety and so on. And there is a there's a reason why the Salam is really
at the time when rasulillah salam was there and among the Arabs, saying Salam aleikum to somebody was to give him protection.
You did not say a Salam alikoum someone with whom you are at war. So Salam O Allah comment, I am giving you protection, these beyond your means. Now nobody can have you.
Nobody can have you. Maybe insecurity maybe in safety.
So there are several. And then of course, rasaan Simmons had this was yesterday, also in Jamaica, as I mentioned, where he said, I'm sure salami said spread the Salah
data ceram to people.
Very important. As I said, it's a small thing, but it's a very important because it's one of those things which we seem to have forgotten.
To say salovaara come to each other is today.
Some people say but most people don't say
in that context, also, there is one Hadees when Elisa said I'm actually actively discouraged, gesturing
just doing this, or whatever, you know, or does this. Now that does not mean if somebody is far away that you have to shout No, in which case you can do this. But
just to gesture, instead of saying a Salam alikoum
is also not the right thing to do that is also disliked. So the thing to do is to say a Salam alikoum
and then you add to that and we say Rahmatullahi wa barakato.
Now, some issues about the salon number one is obviously in a gathering that Michelle has observed the one who is writing
let him say Salaam to the one who's walking
and the one who is walking let him say Salaam to the one who's sitting.
So this is the this is the
30th of Salah. It's not that somebody who's sitting has to say Sam to the one who's standing but the one who's standing which is a lot one who's eating
and vice versa.
Second thing is that Salam is da
and he was saying Salam aleikum, you are saying that may security and peace be upon you? Yeah, para la de la ke Salam Tina Zulu, Salama de Sara Hey Amanda Ray, dry and because it is dry therefore
the elders must say Salaam to the youngsters. First
and obviously because the youngsters will show them or say Salaam to the elders first. Both the beautiful incident from the
time of Russia which illustrates this
valuable delanco answer.
They both entered
the budget at the same time.
say then it was much younger.
did not say salon to seven hours a day
and then an hour
Aug. delanco, was much older, also did not say Salaam to Allah.
And then when they did say salam
said to Sir and he said, Why didn't you say Salaam to me first?
He said, because I wanted you to have the benefit of saying Salam first. I remember the Sahaba they're not playing games. This is not a, you know, just a clever or smart answer. No, genuinely, he said I did not say salam so that you would say Salaam to me and give it to me. And because I'm the one who says Salam first as the greater agile. So he said I wanted to give you the great Roger. Then he asked him, he said Why did you not say Salaam to me?
As an answer, I wanted to give you the great Roger.
As I told you, this is not a game they're playing it's not some SAS answer that is no no, this is actual genuine, the sincerity of the Sahaba.
So, we actually held back to let the other person have the great results and this also shows us that to say salam first the other is greater
other with respect to the salon.
In imageless, if there is a whole black wall of a city now, if somebody enters and the person says salovaara come it is sufficient for one person to reply to him it is not necessary for that person to come into a salon to each person of each person to say sorry,
not necessary, not even desirable, because if there is a something happening and you know you are talking or something else, the whole message gets disrupted because somebody is walking around shaking hands. People sometimes do this out of sincerity, but it is it is improper otherwise, it's not proper etiquette, the proper etiquette is for emphasis on anyone in the assembly can save Alec masala The matter is over now Why? Because when you are in an assembly, even if one person in the assembly sings alarm, he sings alarm on behalf of everyone in the assembly.
So one person has given safety, then that means this entire assembly has given safety to the individual. And therefore it is sufficient for the person to for one person to say salam. Now, just as
a side note, if somebody sneezes, and says Alhamdulillah.
Now is it enough for one person to say everybody should say it? Every Why? Because you are giving data to the person the more he gets, the better for him. Right? So that is a different issue. But for the salon, for one person to say, to give him safety protection to say Santa Monica is more than sufficient. So when somebody enters that is enough for one person to say salam, very important for us because Salam is very interesting. Also, when I used to live in the West Indies. In Ghana,
he does a normal custom of people to greet each other. Now of course they are not Muslim people. So most of them are non Muslims. They don't just Ramallah. So but whatever they say they say hi, how you doing and so on. But it's almost a mirror in in Ghana, it was so beautiful. That if you're walking on the street, almost one hand of yours will always be there because you're constantly greeting
your dog in a 101 and is up here because you're constantly strangers. On the street, you don't know the person somebody.
But nobody, at least when I used to live there, nobody will pass another person without getting
in the street in the bus stand in the shop anywhere. No one will pass another person without greeting that person. Now such a beautiful practice and this is supposed to be our practice.
Supposed to be our practice. Last veronafiere la Thema Illa Freeland Solomon Salam O Allah Tara said about Jana he said they will not hear any useless talk and you know no lies and no rumors and things like this. But Sullivan Salah they will say Salaam Alaikum Salam Alaikum to each other to Salah is his greeting Salam opens the heart ceram makes people brings people close to one another Salaam joins hearts together Salaam gives safety to each other Salam is Salam is when the young younger people make Salaam to the older people that's a sign of other when the older people make Salaam to younger people that is a sign of the shaft cut and dry and therefore Salam is something to be spread
everywhere. Let us make this a habit inshallah that we make Salam always even when you enter the masjid you will not necessarily when you enter the budget to say loudly because you don't want to disturb people who are praying, but in a low voice. It is nice to have to say Salaam Alaikum. When we enter the masjid.
Do not ever enter your house without saying Solomonic.
He said even if
The house is empty. You might say, Well, you know, I'm alone in the house. I know there is no one else in the house. So why should I say Solomonic? No, that is the 30th of the Muslim, even if the house is empty, when you open the door of the house was it was Villa Rahmani Raheem and you went to the house and you say salam alikoum
So the thing is that this alarm is so important and something which we have forgotten May Allah forgive us for forgetting it and let us revive the Salam inshallah. So wherever we go, whoever it is, whether we know the person we don't know the person, let us say salam alikoum to that person is very important for us to do that inshallah. And let us revise this beautiful sunnah of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Allah Allah Allah, Allah will Karim Allah Allah He was have us made the dramatic
