TweetVerse 86 of Surah NisaaÃÂÃÂ mentions تَحِيَّة which is in the context of a greeting. It is a prayer that Allah taÃÂÃÂala keeps the person alive in peace. ÃÂÃÂ
It is a deep and beautiful concept of conveying a prayer (DuÃÂÃÂa) of peace till eternity unlike the various greetings of other cultures. The person making the Salaam is conveying to the other person that there is going to be Aman/Salaamati from him/her i.e. he will be protected. ÃÂÃÂ
As-Salaam is one of the Sifaat of Allah taÃÂÃÂala
Since the word As-Salaam is also one of the attributes of Allah taÃÂÃÂala,certain commentators have mentioned that when one greets, it means, ÃÂÃÂMay Allah, who is the giver of peace, take you in His safety and custody, keeping you in peace forever.ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ There is so much beauty in the Salaam however we take it for granted.
Let us be mindful of these beautiful points when greeting others with Salaam as it is giving each other a very powerful DuÃÂÃÂa!
