Chapter 135
Excellence of Greeting at the time of entry into the House

قَالَ الله تَعَالَى : ﴿ فَإذَا دَخَلْتُمْ بُيُوتاً فَسَلِّمُوا عَلَى أَنْفُسِكُمْ تَحِيَّةً مِنْ عِنْدِ اللهِ مُبَارَكَةً طَيِّبَةً ﴾ [ النور (61) ] . هذه الآية عامة في جميع البيوت ، فإذا دخل بيتًا فيه أهله فليسلِّم عليهم . وإذا دخل بيته فليسلِّم على أهله . وإذا دخل بيتًا خاليًا فليقل : السلام علينا وعلى عباد الله الصالحين .

Allah, the Exalted, says:

"But when you enter the houses, greet one another with a greeting from Allah (i.e., say: As-Salamu 'Alaikum - may you be safe from evil), blessed and good." (24:61)

[861] وعن أنسٍ قال : قَالَ لي رسول الله : « يَا بُنَيَّ ، إِذَا دَخَلْتَ عَلَى أهْلِكَ ، فَسَلِّمْ ، يَكُنْ بَرَكَةً عَلَيْكَ ، وعلى أهْلِ بَيْتِكَ » . رواه الترمذي ، وقال : ( حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحيحٌ ) . فيه : الأمر بالسلام إذا دخل بيته لتناله بركة التحية .

861. Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said to me, "Dear son, when you enter your house, say As-Salamu 'Alaikum to your family, for it will be a blessing both to you and to your family."


Commentary: Many people, on returning home, feel belittled in saying As-Salamu 'Alaikum to their household. In fact, As-Salam is a prayer for goodness, blessing and peace, and one should have no complex about it.

Enter Islam in whole

 يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ ادْخُلُواْ فِي السِّلْمِ كَآفَّةً وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ إِنَّهُ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ

(2:208) O Believers, enter completely into Islam and do not follow in the footsteps of Satan, for he is your avowed enemy.
God demands that man should submit, without reservation, the whole of his being to His will. Man's outlook, intellectual pursuits, behaviour, interaction with other people and modes of endeavour should all be completely subordinate to Islam. God does not accept the splitting up of human life into separate compartments, some governed by the teachings of Islam and others exempt. (Tafheemul Quran)
