هُوَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِى لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلْمَلِكُ ٱلْقُدُّوسُ ٱلسَّلَٰمُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُ ٱلْمُهَيْمِنُ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلْجَبَّارُ ٱلْمُتَكَبِّرُ
He is Allah, besides Whom there is no god; the King, the Holy, the Giver of peace, the Granter of security, Guardian over all, the Mighty, the Enforcer, the Possessor of every greatness 59:23

The words Islam and Salaam both come from the same root word. Being a Muslim means being at peace with Divinity.

وَإِذَا حُيِّيتُم بِتَحِيَّةٍ فَحَيُّوا بِأَحْسَنَ مِنْهَآ أَوْ رُدُّوهَآ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ حَسِيبًا 
And when you are greeted with a greeting, greet with a better (greeting) than it or return it; surely Allah takes account of all things. 4:86

When we say “Salaamun Alaykum” we are actually telling someone that we assure you of safety and security granting you immunity from evil or evil intentions on our part. The greeting is an identity for Muslims.. The response is obligatory.
When greeting someone with Salaam, we are also saying “May Allah always envelope you with His Name As Salaam.”
One of the names given to Jannah is Dar us Salaam, the abode of peace, and to achieve the Dar us Salaam on this earth it is to be able to find peace among the chaos.
As Salaam is a name from the names of Allah, so spread it between yourselves” Prophet (pbuh)


We all move towards peace and tranquility even without realising it. It could be through meditation, exercise, yoga or going for a walk on the beach or a park. Others seek peace through salaa & dua (prayer) in connecting with Allah. and Others, however, seek a state of inner peace through prayer and their spiritual connection with Allah. And then there are others who try to escape agitation by seeking peace in destructive behaviour like drink and drugs. While the external practices may vary, in essence, we are all seeking the same thing.
True peace can only come from its source. We look for peace because something in our soul recognises the divine nature of this attribute. So when we seek peace, we should know exactly where we need to turn.


Recite YAA SALAAM 100x for someone with an illness to heal and to be safe from all types of troubles.
