Ask The Imam Question and Answer

661 Which of the Salutation 'Assalam Alaikum' or 'Salam Alaikum' is correct or better because Assalam Alaikum is not mentioned in the Quran. Also when the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) wrote a letter to Munzir Bin Sawi it was addressed with Salutation ‘Salam Alaikum’.
Grammatically it is correct to say “Asalaamu Alai Kum”; however it is not wrong to say “Salaam Alai Kum” either.

Regarding the letter the Holy Prophet (S.A.W), it was used in a different context, which is why it had no Alif Laam before Salaam. Alif Laam is used in Arabic grammar to make emphasis on what is said. Muslim scholars agree that the greeting between Muslims is better to be emphasized.
