 Salams Sister Chrysalis, and welcome to this forum:
Please tell me sister what does ppl mean?
also you said that you felt bad all day when you were not able to return the salamsUnhappy.  But May Allah be pleased cause you actually felt something from that.  I started this forum because it happens so much here in Atlanta.  I understand that maybe some sisters may be shy, i know how that feels @ times.  But welcome in here.

Assalamualaiki,

Perhaps you all are living in a place with Muslims in the minority. Where I live, it is very natural to greet and receive greetings with Salams and a smile that really could brighten up the whole day.

I have never had encountered this attitude before. Maybe, you should start with a smile first from far and when you are withing hearing distance, then you should utter the salaams. At least if you receive a smile in return, you could then venture to say the salaams.

Anyway, it is not advisable to linger a bad opinion in one's mind in regards to another human being. Let us always think positive. Thinking negative will lead to all sorts of imaginations that is sinful.

Wa Alaikum As Salam Nur Ilahi,

Welcome to this Forum.  Thanks you for your advice.  I do live in an area where Muslims are the minority, and i have followed your advice with the same reaction that i spoke of thru out this post.  It seems like to me, that by living in an area where we are so few that we should all embrace each other instead of shunning each other. You are very fortunate to live where you feel loved and are greeted on a daily basis.

May Allah have Mercy on us all.

Wa Alaikum As Salams, Maron
That's the same thing my husband told me.  I just think as female we are more emotional when it comes to things like this.
Thank for your post and welcome to this forum

17. Salam is for everyone

Quran demands that we greet others better than the way they have greeted us. (Quran 4:86).

After Juma do you say Salam and meet only those people you know or do you initiate a Salam to those from another ethnic group?

Consider this Hadith: The Prophet said: Those who are nearest to Allah are those who are the first to give a greeting (Sahiah of Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi).

Saying Salam is also a great way to increase your love for a fellow Muslim, no matter where they are from. Consider this Hadith: the Prophet said: You will not enter Heaven until you believe, and you will not believe until you love each other. Let me guide you to something which will cause you to love each other: spreading the greetings of peace (Assalamu alaikum) (Sahiah of Muslim).

Assalamu Alaikum
