Chapter 138

Greeting the non-Muslims and Prohibition of taking an Initiative




Hadith 866



Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu reported: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"Do not greet the Jews and the Christians before they greet you; and when you meet any one of them on the road, force him to go to the narrowest part of it.'' [Muslim].


Commentary:
This Hadith prohibits Muslims from greeting non-Muslims first. It also tells us that when the road is crowded, we should use the middle of the road and let the non-Muslims use its sides. This Hadith shows the dignity of Muslims and the disgrace and humiliation of the non-Muslims.

Hadith 867



Anas radiyallahu anhu reported: Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"When the people of the Book greet you (i.e., by saying `As-Samu `Alaikum,' meaning death be upon you), you should respond with: `Wa `alaikum' [The same on you (i.e., and death will be upon you, for no one will escape death)].'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Hadith 868




Usamah bin Zaid radiyallahu anhu reported: The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa passed by a mixed company of people which included Muslims, polytheists and Jews, and he gave them the greeting (i.e., saying As-Salamu `Alaikum). [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


Commentary: If there is a mixed assembly of Muslims and non-Muslims, one should utter greeting to it but consider Muslims as one's addressees.
