Q 3: What is the ruling on
a person who greets people saying: "Salamullahi `Alaikum wa Rahmatuhu wa Barakatuh"
(Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessing be upon you)" or "Salamun Minallahi `Alaikum wa Rahmatuhu wa Barakatuh (Peace, Mercy and Blessing from Allah be upon you)"? Some scholars do not permit it while others do.
The matter is flexible because the genitive is mentioned instead of "Al" in his saying: "Al-Salam". However, uttering the reported words of the Sunnah which are "Al-Salamu `Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh" is better.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
