On Giving Salaam When Entering the Mosque
by The Albaani Blog
Questioner: [When someone enters the mosque does he give salaam to the people around him only or should he raise his voice] so that everyone can hear him?
Al-Albaani: I hold the first situation [to be correct], because the basic principle regarding someone who enters the mosque is that he does not disturb anyone, so if he must give salaam—and [indeed] he must—then to those around him.
