Significance of Salutation in Islam: Hazrat at-Tufail Bin Ubayy Bin Ka’b (Radi Allahu Anhu) told that he used to go to Hazrat (Radi Allahu Anhuma) and accompany him to the market in the morning, and that when they came to the market in the morning Hazrat Abdullah Bin Umar (Radi Allahu Anhuma) gave a salutation to sellers of goods of poor quality, people engaged in confirming a bargain, poor people, in fact to everyone he passed. Hazrat at-Tufail (Radi Allahu Anhu) said that one day when he went to Hazrat Abdullah Bin Umar (Radi Allahu Anhuma) and he asked him to come with him to the market he said to him, “What is the point of your going to the market when you do not engage in selling, or ask about commodities, or offer a price for them, or sit with any company of people there? Let us sit here and talk.” He replied, “O plump one [Hazrat at-Tufail (Radi Allahu Anhu) was plump], I go out in the morning only for the sake of a salutation, saluting those I meet.” (Maalike, Baihaqi)
