Ten..Twenty..Thirty

It is recommended for the one offering greetings to say;
`As-Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu'.


The reply is;
`Wa `Alaikum us-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu.'


851. `Imran bin Husain (May Allah be pleased with them) reported;
A man came to the Prophet (PBUH) and said: "As-Salamu `Alaikum (may you be safe from evil). Messenger of Allah (PBUH) responded to his greeting and the man sat down. The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Ten (meaning the man had earned the merit of ten good acts).''

Another one came and said: "As-Salamu `Alaikum wa Rahmatullah (may you be safe from evil, and Mercy of Allah be upon you).'' Messenger of Allah (PBUH) responded to his greeting and the man sat down. Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "Twenty.''

A third one came and said: "As-Salamu `Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu (may you be safe from evil, and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings be upon you).'' Messenger of Allah (PBUH) responded to his greeting and the man sat down. Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "Thirty.''

[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].


Commentary:
This Hadith shows that we can earn ten-fold good rewards by greeting a person in the Islamic way. There will be a further ten-fold addition to it if we say, "As-Salamu `Alaikum wa Rahmatullah" (may you be safe from evil, and the Mercy of Allah be upon you). And if we say, "As-Salamu `Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu'' may you be safe from evil, and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings be upon you), thirty-fold good reward comes to us. But Ahadith are silent on increasing more words to Salam. So this much will suffice.

P/S

Ya Allah, alangkah besarnya natijah kebaikan yang Engkau berikan kepada hamba-Mu yang Islam, tetapi mengapa terlalu ramai manusia yang masih tidak menyedarinya? Manusia hari ini semakin leka dan alpa. Apa yang dipaparkan di atas adalah hanya sekadar salam yang sering kita ungkapkan seharian. Jika sedari kelebihannya maka pastilah kita mengutamakannya. Bertambah malang lagi apabila ummat manusia ini mula tidak meyakini kejadian dan pemberian Allah kepada mereka hanya kerana tiada bukti yang nyata. Jika pahala itu nyata, jika dosa itu nyata, maka tidak perlulah ada dunia untuk menyemai tanaman untuk dipetik diakhirat kelak. Wallahua'lam bissowab.
