Happy he made the order Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh I want you to pay special attention to this greeting of Islam that I just said because inshallah this will be the gist of this short video. All praises are to Allah subhanho wa Taala, our Creator, our sustainer our nourisher the only one worthy of worship rumpler is that he will jellal Allah.

00:00:44--> 00:01:28

Allah has informed the summit and let me edit when a mule at one level Khufu an ad, La ilaha illa Allah and peace and salutations be upon Muhammad, Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam do all Allah subhanho wa Taala blesta Mohammed Abdullah on the level are Li wasallam and we should always say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when we hear the word Mohammed because this is from the etiquettes of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed us with countless blessings and from these blessings is the Islamic greeting. We Salah when I said to you all salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh now how is this a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Well,

00:01:28--> 00:01:30

in the authentic hadith in Sahih

00:01:31--> 00:01:44

we are informed by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that when Allah subhana wa teranet created Adam alayhis salam, he instructed him to go to the angels and greet them saying a Solomonic.

00:01:47--> 00:01:57

So Adam alayhis salam went to the angels and said Assalamualaikum and the angels responded by saying what are they called salam wa Taala they added one.

00:01:59--> 00:02:06

So this greeting, really is an old one. It is a greeting that existed from the occasion of Adam.

00:02:08--> 00:02:11

And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that this greeting

00:02:13--> 00:02:28

is a means of creating unity amongst us and remember earlier episodes, we discussed unity and how it is a means of attaining the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said up to Salaam available that spread the ceram between yourselves.

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:32--> 00:02:37

taught us that this lamb is a means of

00:02:38--> 00:03:24

earning a vacation is a means of making our scales on the day of piano even heavier for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that for the one who greets the fellow Muslim brother by saying a Salam aleikum, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give them 10 rewards. And if they greet them by saying a Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah Allah subhanho wa Taala will give them 20 rewards. And when they greet the brother by saying a Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu, Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward that person with 30 words, is this not a means of building our agenda? Indeed, it is. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the forum for either for you to be hated for how you react and I

00:03:24--> 00:03:35

mean her to do that if you are greeted with a greeting, then make sure your response to the greeting is, is equal to the greeting received, or even better.

00:03:36--> 00:04:20

So Pamela, and this teaches us how complete our cheriya is, and how Islam is a complete way of life. For the alumni have taught us and extracted from this verse, that the actual greeting is shouldn't but to respond to the greeting is composite. Look how Islam looks after the feelings of one another, that Islam does not want a person to beat another and not receive a response because if you do not receive a response, it will be a means of the development of animosity, of sadness, and of disunity of us of hanaway to Allah teaches us that it is of compulsory to respond to the greeting of our fellow Muslim brother in the manner that we receive that greeting or even better. So what does this

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

mean? This means that if our fellow Muslim brother greets us by saying Assalamualaikum then the response to that greeting should be at least when it comes to lamb. And even better is for you to say what I did from Santa Monica to LA and even better is for you to say where I live from Santa Monica to La Habra cat. But if your fellow Muslim brother greets you by saying a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah then it is bad manners for you to respond by just saying what la consola you should respond by at least saying are alaikum Salaam wa rahmatullah and it is even better for you to respond in full by saying why they come Salaam

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

Or matola here.

00:05:02--> 00:05:11

And if the greeting is received in full, then there is no option except to respond to that greeting in full as well. Now,

00:05:12--> 00:05:52

what an amazing religion a complete way of life famous parable Allah grant us the understanding make manifest Salaam during the month of Ramadan and after the month of Ramadan and see the benefits both in this world and they are after I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and I leave you with our closing line, as we do with every video during this month of Ramadan. And that closing line is a Muslim is an entity that is active and proactive. What are you doing Oh servant of Allah to serve Islam and the Muslims for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala barakallahu pecan Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
