  • What would you do if.... Would you...?

    Say you're walking down the street, head down etc. And someone of the opposite gender, Muslim or non-muslim, says AsalamuAlaykum, just as a way of greeting. Now for some this may be normal, but for other it is hell. So I want to know what you do/ would do in this situation. Would you put your head down in fear of giving off the wrong message, or would you return the Salam and carry on, head down, or just reply casually and or start a convo?

    Now be honest, I'm not asking for lectures on what you should or shouldnt do, I'm just wondering what other people In that situation would do. If you haven't already been in it, imagine, or make a situation like this up in your head and let me know what you come up with.

    I know it's not abig deal, but I'm curious :)

    ThankyoooooouAll.

    :salams

    Replying to salaam is a must, as far as I know. So, I will do that. And walk on...

    Start a convo with a random sister on the street? Lol.
    No, won't be doing that.
    Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

          Good to hear. :) JzAllah

          But may I ask would you as a brother in Islam walk up to a sister out of nowhere and say Salam? Or would that seem un natural? Because it happens to me quiet often and I don't think it's that much of a norm if you can in any way understand what Im waffling on about..? LOL. But Yh, the convo bit was just extra, :)

          Thanks for you contribution though

                  No, wouldn't do that.

                  Being around sisters make me uncomfortable, anyways.

                  No offense to sisters, though.

                      Its Best To Leave It Alone. I Mean You Dont HAVE To Give Salaams In This Case Im Assuming. I Mean Like It Would Draw Shaytaan In. If You Walk Past A Sister. Salams Then Be Like how Are U Alhumdulillah.

                          Exactly.

                          I completely understand what you both mean, and I am a prettyshy person myself, but I would feel verybad if I didn't reply as it would have been 3ala wajhe Allah(for he sake of Allah) and so I think that overcomes my shyness, just for ling enoughto say Salam and scurryalong though!!
                          But yeah, totally understandable :)

                              Yeah, it's not a norm where I live, in colleges, etc. We only say salaam when there's a genuine need to talk.

                              But, Allah knows best their intentions. No harm in replying to the salam, though.
