Abdullah Shaikh

ANSWER: Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)

Assalmalaikum

Dear Brother,

I trust this is an invention in order to say salaam to Non-Muslims. The Quran already tells us what to do in this case. ( please do read the exact Arabic Ayats )

[Quran 28:55] And when they hear vain talk, they turn away therefrom and say: "To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you (salam alaikum): we seek not the ignorant."

[Maryam 19:46] (The father) replied: "Dost you hate my Allah/Gods, O Abraham? If you forbear not, I will indeed stone you: Now get away from me for a good long while!"

[Maryam 19:47] Abraham said: "Peace be on you (Salamun Alaika): I will pray to my Lord for your forgiveness: for He is to me Most Gracious.

[25:63] And the servants of (Allah/God) Most Gracious are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say, "Peace!" (Salama).

Based on the above ayats we can agree that saying "Salaam" to non-muslims is not an issue at all.

Answer
Dear Brother,
I have already given you enough quotes from the Quran for "Salamalaikum". There is no quote from quran or hadith which I have heard that supports a different version of salaam. (ASSALAMU ALA MAN ITTABAA AL-HUDA)

Therefore the new type of salam is to be avoided at all cost.

Thank & Regards
