Raising the hand when greeting someone at a distance

A: There is no harm in waving during offering the Salam in this case. It was narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) greeted a group of women and waved with his hand. He (peace be upon him) meant, and Allah knows best, to make them understand that he was greeting them. However, it is not permissible to substitute Salam by waving.
