    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.

    LOL. :]

    It's really nice when someone who is not Muslim greets you with Salaam.
    Beautiful and ever so respectful.
    SubhanaAllah!

I try to smile modestly at everyone who looks at me because I believe a smile is a charity and it can make someone's day if they're down to see that there are people around who aren't totally negative etc. But sometimes the reactions of muslimahs are just terribly worrying in comparison to any others!

    If I know they are Muslim, I usually just give salams whether they are male or female. I would reply back if they gave me salams first.

    The more worrying part would be what in the world is she doing wearing a turban?

    That's worth striking a convo with her.
