Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
By Him in
Whose Hand is my life! You will not enter Jannah until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one
another. Shall I inform you of something which, if you do, you will love one another? Promote greetings amongst
Iman is a prerequisite for entry to Jannah. Whereas mutual love among Muslims is complementary to
it, and this quality can only be attained by giving a social character to the Islamic form of greeting, that is to say,
`As-Salamu `Alaikum.'

`Abdullah bin Salam (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH)
"O people, exchange greetings of peace (i.e., say: As-Salamu `Alaikum to one another), feed people,
strengthen the ties of kinship, and be in prayer when others are asleep, you will enter Jannah in peace.''
All these habits and practices are indispensable to a believer because each one of them leads to
Jannah with the first people to enter it without being punished in Hell first.

At-Tufail bin Ubayy bin Ka`b (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I used to visit `Abdullah bin `Umar
(May Allah be pleased with them) in the morning and accompany him to the market. `Abdullah offered greetings of
peace to every one he met on the way, be they sellers of petty goods, traders or poor people. One day when I came to
him, he asked me to accompany him to the market. I said to him:
"What is the point of your going to the market
when you do not sell, nor ask about articles, nor offer a price for them, nor sit down with any company of people.
Let us sit down here and talk.''
He replied:
"O Abu Batn (belly)! (Tufail had a large belly), we go to the market to
greet everyone we meet.''
This Hadith highlights `Abdullah bin `Umar's passion for promoting Salam which is a practice of
Sunnah. Secondly, we can call a person by his epithetic name provided he is not offended by it.
