Assalaamu'alaykum,


We are allowed to RETURN THEIR SALAAM with peace...but we are NOT TO INSTIGATE the salaam of peace.

As for the ahadith that pertains to in response to the kufaar degradation greeting "AsSamiu~Alaykum" this means and death be upon you, you are to reply with "wa 'alaykum".


Book 026, Number 5384: Muslim


'A'isha reported that a group of Jews came to Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) and sought his audience and said: As-Sam-u-'Alaikum. A'isha said in response: As-Sim-u-'Alaikum (death be upon you) and curse also, whereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: 'A'isha, verily Allah loes kindness in every matter. She said: Did you bear what they said? Thereupon he said: Did you not hear that I said (to them): Wa 'Alaikum.

Book 026, Number 5387:  Muslim

This hadith has been reported on the authority of A'znash with a slight variation of wording. 'A'isha understood their meaning and cursed them and Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: 'A'isha. (do not do that) for Allah does not like the use of harsh words, and it was at this stage that this verse of Allah. the Exalt. ed and Glorious. was revealed:" And when they come to thee, they greet thee with a greeting with which Allah greets thee not" (Iviii. 8) to the end of the verse.

"Have you not seen those who were forbidden to hold secret counsels, and afterwards returned to that which they had been forbidden, and conspired together for sin and wrong doing and disobedience to the Messenger (Muhammad SAW ). And when they come to you, they greet you with a greeting wherewith Allah greets you not, and say within themselves: "Why should Allah punish us not for what we say?" Hell will be sufficient for them, they will burn therein, and worst indeed is that destination!"

أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ نُهُوا عَنِ النَّجْوَى ثُمَّ يَعُودُونَ لِمَا نُهُوا عَنْهُ وَيَتَنَاجَوْنَ بِالْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ وَمَعْصِيَتِ الرَّسُولِ وَإِذَا جَاؤُوكَ حَيَّوْكَ بِمَا لَمْ يُحَيِّكَ بِهِ اللَّهُ وَيَقُولُونَ فِي أَنفُسِهِمْ لَوْلَا يُعَذِّبُنَا اللَّهُ بِمَا نَقُولُ حَسْبُهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ يَصْلَوْنَهَا فَبِئْسَ الْمَصِيرُ

Al-Mujadila 58:8

I am getting a want in me of these du'a.

 (in my culture if we are wanting we get forced to have what we want, in a tough love frame work, but in which wanting stuff not good for us is measured into a homeopathic type dose - homeopathy on the grand scale of our fear about hereafter- but truly that is why I write this, that I want these du'as; because I know it is a sign of being in a happy frame of mind, that I want du'a more than I want a cup of coffee, for example.)

    Translation: O Allah, all sublimity is for You at every incline and all praise is for You at all times under all conditions. 


Salam I see here a phenomenon I have seen in at least two other contexts, of the genital Wudu component being untaught in English.  Is it only because this is not a context for one gender only? Or is there other reason to not provide the English?  Is it because in English language there are no compatible words?  I ask because of my experience with Aboriginal language words for genitalia, in which our language is both far more clinical, and far more shaming, but then also less shameful to use when in the act, but only then.  Oddly but not so odd, the words for every reference to genitals and gender, are the language usage held in best cultural retention subsequent to invasion of our land.  I am wondering if the decisions to avoid translation here, are a part of the same phenomenon as the level of language retention of similar mental associations for Indigenous Australians.

But also, I might need to ask if there are women only internet contexts where I might learn the translation.  You will all tell me to learn Arabic I am sure, but maybe I need the English translation.  Maybe not but.  As I think to myself when actualising gential wudhu, I believe in dua which is liken to the Zam Zam one in combination with that for When visiting the sick, and that for after wudhu.  But am I missing something?  I posted a poem about wudhu in a thread made specially for poetry, here earlier, perhaps that might assist.

Salam
