Ramadan Day 7 – Things To Do

7th Ramadan: Say your salams! Do you ever stop and think that the greeting that we use daily is something we get rewarded for? Yeah, neither did I. Subhan’Allah!
The Prophet ﷺ also explained the reward earned by the one who says salaam, as was reported by al-Nisaa’i in ‘Aml al-yawm wa’l-laylah (368) and al-Bukhaari in al-Adab al-Mufrad (586) and by Ibn Hibban (493). They reported from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that a man passed by the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ whilst he was sitting with some others, and said “Salaam ‘alaykum (peace be upon you).” The Prophet ﷺ said, “[He will have] ten hasanaat (rewards).” Another man passed by and said “Salaam ‘alaykum wa rahmat-Allaah (peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah).” The Prophet ﷺ said, “[He will have] twenty hasanaat.” Another man passed by and said “Salaam ‘alaykum wa rahmat-Allaahi wa barakaatuhu (peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah and His blessings).” The Prophet ﷺ said, “[He will have] thirty hasanaat.”
