I thought Bowing was haram

Jazakallah for pointing that out. I must of over looked it. It has been removed until such evidence can be found and backed up. IT IS HARAM TO BOW TO ANY OTHER THAN ALLAH, WETHER THAT IS IN A FORM OF RUKU OR SAJDAH. I have just added this to the post. It is forbidden to bow when greeting with the Salaam because the Prophet, Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam, was asked about a man meeting his brother by bowing down for him. He replied, "No". Reported By At Tirmidhee. Since bowing is a form of Rukoo, and the Rukoo and the Sujood are allowed only for Allah. We should pay attention to the rule and the honour regarding standing up for the Salaam.

Jazakallahu khair for taking the time and readingy blog post. Unfortunately I am not a scholar, and I am not able to answer your question. Should you wish to ask a question to a Mufti, I would recommend you visit the Q & A section where you will find qualified scholars. Alternatively you can read through this

Prophet (SAW)'s Prayers  When entering the cemetry السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمُ يَا أَهْلَ الْقُبُورِ يَغْفِرُ اللَّهُ لَنَا وَلَكُمْ أَنْتُمُ سَلَفُنَا وَنَحْنُ بِالْأَثَرِ "Oh inmates of the graves, salaam on you. Allah forgive us and you all. You left first and we will be coming later". Or السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمُ أَهْلَ الدِّيَارِ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُسْلِمِينَ وَإِنَّا إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ بِكُمْ لَاحِقُونَ نَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ لَنَا وَلَكُمُ الْعَافِيَةَ "Oh Muslims residing here, salaams on you, by the will of Allah we will also be coming to you. We seek safety for us and you". (Muslim)

Assalamu Alaikum,

Can we salaam to a person or a group of people gathered to attend the funeral ?
Blogger's Reply:
WasSalaam, I don't see why salaam can not be done, but it would be better to confirm with the scholars. Let's not forget there is also a Dua when entering a cemetery, which practically is Salaam to all the inhabitants of the grave. Wallahu Alum
