Replying To Salam In Prayer...from A Sunni?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

(bismillah)

 

(salam)

 

Sunni's love to enter a room and without looking say salam out loud.

 

The prayer room at work is infested with them.

 

 

They like to walk in and say salam or when they leave they say salam loud and leave.

 

The room is not very big and so everyone can hear it.

 

 

No, is the rule regarding replying to Salam only meant for shias saying salam to shias

 

 

 

Or is the rule all encompassing?

 

 

So the question is:

 

 

If you are praying and a sunni says salam, are you obligated to reply? (Of copurse if you did 'reply' it would have to be with the same words he/she used)

 

 

What if he/she is a nasibi? what if you dont know whether they are a nasibi or not?

 

 

 

 

Shukran

Salams,

Just answer the salam, it doesnt matter from who it is. We all know that a salam should be answered its not like your going to turn to check if his a wahbie or not during salat.

But email sayid sistain ha or whoever you follow and double check.

The problem is that saying something other than what should be said in the prayer will break the prayer, so if you are not meant to reply the salam of a non shia 'just replying' the salam will break your prayer.

 

 

Thats why I am asking the question else I could have just done that myself...

 

Syed Sistani never replies me...

 

 

Thanks fo your efforts.

 

 

 

EDIT: Ya there is no chance its a shia anyways cause I am the only Shia who prays in that prayer room.

Salamun Alaykum. Firtst of all, if a person enters that room and says salam to all (not specifically the one who is saying prayer) then the one praying should not reply him except if no body replies him. Secondly, when you have to answer, there is no difference between Shias and Sunnis. Thirdly, in situation where you have to reply to salam if you dont do that your prayer is valid although you have committed a sin.

Im not sure what the sunni rules are but no one seems to reply from them whilst they are praying.

 

Yes on most occasions one who is not praying will reply so its all good (As if one from the group replies than the obligation for all is terminated).

 

I am more concerned about the situation of all in the room are praying and no one replies back...

 

 

Thanks for you answer but Ineed references (Quran, hadith, marja rulings etc)...

Salamun alaykum.

When all are praying and a person says salam to all (i mean to all) it is obligatory upon all to answer him but as soon as one person replies him others should not reply anymore. Now, in your case, if no one replies it is your obligation to do that.

Reference for such questions is Islamic treatise (so-called risala tawdih al-masa'il). Refer to the chapter on invalidators (mubtilat) of prayer, usually under 6th invalidator (talking).

(salam)


Issue 1146: * A person offering prayers should not greet anyone with Salam, and if another person says Salam to him, he should use the same words in reply without adding anything to it. For example, if someone says Salamun alaykum, he should also say Salamun 'alaykum in reply, without adding Wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. As an obligatory precaution, he should not utter 'Alaykum' or 'Alayka' before the word Salamun if the one who greeted him did not say so. In fact, the recommended precaution is that the reciprocation must fully conform with the way Salam was initiated. So if he said: Salamun alaykum, the reply should be Salamun alaykum, and if he said: As-Salamu alaykum, then the reply should be the same. Similarly, the reply to  alamum alayka will be Salamun alayka. But if someone initiated Salam saying Alaykumus Salam, then the answer can be given in any of the phrases.

 

 

Issue 1147: It is necessary that the reply to Salam is given at once, irrespective of whether one is praying or not. And if, whether intentionally or due to forgetfulness, he delays reply to the Salam, so much that if he gives a reply after the delay, it may not be reckoned to be a reply to that Salam, then he should not reply if he is in Salat . And if he is not in Salat it is not obligatory for him to reply.

 

 

Issue 1148: * A person should reply to a Salam in a way that one who greets him can hear it. However, if he who says salam is deaf, or passes away quickly, then it is necessary to make reciprocation by sign etc., if  hat would be understood. If that is not possible, then it is not obligatory to respond when one is not praying. And if one is praying, it is not permissible.

 

 

Issue 1149: * It is obligatory that a person who is in Salat , responds to Salam with the intention of greeting. But if he responds with the intention of prayers or blessing, meaning “May Allah bless You”, there is no harm.

 

 

these are issues which relate to replying salam in prayer from Islamic law of Ayat ul-Allah Sistani 

 

hope this helps!

(wasalam)
