Give one better than it..

Salamualaykum,

A quote from Imam Siraj Wahhaj (hafidhahullah):

“Always remember the ayah ‘Whenever you are greeted by a greeting, then return it. Give one better than it or at least return it.’ It is a commandment from Allah, so how dare you give a bad response, a bad salam. The Prophet told the sahaba that Allah will give a greater reward to the person who greets their Muslim brother or sister first. When the sahaba heard that, you would think they would rush to do it first, but no, they did the opposite because each one wanted their brother to get the greater reward. They would wait for their brother or sister to say it first. That is how deep their iman was. SubhanAllah.”

-Fi Amanillah-
