Is it prohibited to greet a reciter of Qur'an with Salam?


A: It is permissible to greet with Salam (Islamic greeting of peace) a person reciting the Qur’an and it is obligatory for them to return the greeting, since there is no proof from Shari‘ah (Islamic law) prohibiting this. The basic rule derived from the general evidence supports the lawfulness of initiating and returning the greeting of Salam, until there is evidence that excludes the case in question.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
