Hadith Explanation

Protocol of Salam

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “A rider should salute a pedestrian; a pedestrian should salute one who is sitting; and a small group should salute a large group (of people).” Another narration adds: “The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The young should greet the elderly.” [Sahih Bukhari]

The greeting of As-Salamu Alaikum should be offered in the prescribed way. When Muslims are not aware of the rules of their religion then they make an issue of their imagined importance and worldly status. It is the situations that are given consideration here in being the first to offer Salam, and not the rank and status of people. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has blessed us with these rules to pre-empt false pride and confusion.
