As-salamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu (Arabic: السلام عليكم) is an Arabic greeting. It translates to “the peace be upon you (plural)”, ( May Allah’s peace , mercy and blessing be upon you ) but is often used as a greeting and parting and is considered the equivalent to “hello”, “hi” or “good day” as a greeting and “goodbye” or “farewell” as a parting in English.
The greeting is regularly exchanged during Muslim lectures and sermons.The typical response to the greeting is “Wa-Alaikum-Salaam” (“and upon you Peace”) or “Wa-Alaikumus-Salaam” (“and upon you the Peace”).
The term in Arabic begins with the definite article al with the l assimilating to the following consonant s of Salaam. The use of the definite article is a specific reference to Peace as granted by Allah.
The term in Arabic uses the second person plural masculine, even when used to address one person, similar to the use of vous in French.
The expression may be modified by choosing the appropriate enclitic pronoun to address a person in the masculine and feminine singular form, the dual form, or the feminine plural form. The conjugations are as follow (note: according to the standard pronunciation rules of classical Arabic, the last short vowel in each word is not pronounced unless it is followed by another word):
A third-person variant, ʿalayhi as-salām “peace be upon him”, is used in reference to prophets.
Definite as-salām (السلام) may be replaced by indefinite salāmun (سلامٌ). This form of the word is used in a passage of the Qur’an describing the greeting of the Angels towards the inhabitants of Paradise:
And angels shall enter unto them from every gate (saying) Salāmun ‘Alaykum (peace be upon you) for that you persevered in patience! Excellent indeed is the final home!’— (Ar-Ra’ad 13:23-24)
The form salāmun ʿalaykum is especially used in Turkey, where it is spelled selamün aleyküm.
In the closely related Hebrew, the cognate and roughly-equivalent greeting is shalom aleichem with the response aleichem shalom.
