“Why does he not give salaam …?”

by The Albaani Blog


 

“One day we were in a lecture being held at someone’s house. Whenever the owner of the house would come in or leave he would not give salaam assuming that by doing so he would be disturbing the lesson.  So the Shaikh turned to him and asked, “Why does he not give salaam when he enters and leaves?”  And so the lesson changed topic and ended up being about the manners concerning giving salaam when entering and leaving and the manners of seeking permission and so on.”
