    Re: Returniing Salam When You're Unsure

    scholars such as Ibn Qayim and Uthaymeen say that if someone says to you asalamalaykum and you are clear they said this and not what the Jews said to the Prophet saw ie alsaam alaykum (death upon you) then it is best to reply with the full walaykumasalaam

    based on

    When you are greeted with a greeting, greet in return with what is better than it, or (at least) return it equally”

    [al-Nisa’ 4:86]


    This is under the rules of fairness and justice. The hadith of the Prophet saw saying wa alaykum (same to you) was based on the Jews playing games with the words so He saw responded in kind

          How do you respond when a stranger says and you're unsure if they are Muslim or non-Muslim and just trying to be polite?

          Is it correct to return :aku_wsalam:to a non-Muslim or doesn't it really matter? Like if there was no obligation either way.

          If they say assalamu alaykum, respond with a better greeting by saying, "wa alaykum assalam warahmutallahi wabarakatu."
          وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ
          "And when My servants ask you (O Muhammad concerning Me, then answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright."
          Surah al-Baqarah ayah 186
          [2:186]

            Re: Returniing Salam When You're Unsure

            there are many muslim women who dont wear hijab and many brothers who dont have beards or just 'look' like they wouldnt be muslim, but u never know... not good to not return a salam and i presume there could be people excited to see a muslim and say something they learned in a college course or online, but who are we to judge?

            someone posted a thread of some jewish and christian women in the middle east who look exactly like muslms, so what if it was you who accidently said salam to a covered jewish woman because u assumed she WAS muslim...
