Greeting the Children

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him)
reported that he passed by some children and greeted them. Then he
said: "Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to do the same.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
By greeting children, we please their hearts and also vent our modesty. Besides, the importance of
As-Salam is unconsciously felt by them. Above all it is the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and so we are
supposed to put it into practice.
