Responding to salaam when praying. What he/she should do?

 

If salaam (Islamic greeting) is given to a person whilst he is praying, he can reply with
a gesture, as was reported from Suhayb (may Allaah be pleased with him), who said:
―I passed by the Messenger of Allaah SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) as he was praying. I greeted him with salaam, and he responded with a gesture.‖
(Sunan Abi Dawood, 925; Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood, 818).

 

 

The gesture is described in a number of ahaadeeth, such as that narrated by Ibn
Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: ―

 

The Messenger of Allaah sallallahu alaihi wasallam
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) went out to Qubaa‘ to pray there.

The
Ansaar came to him and greeted him with salaam whilst he was praying.

 

I asked
Bilaal, How did you see the Messenger of Allaah SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him) reply to them when they said salaam to him and he was praying?‘

He
said: Like this,‘ and flattened his hand

 

Ja‘far ibn Awn (one of the narrators)
flattened his hand with the palm facing downwards and the back of his hand facing
upwards. (Sunan Abi Dawood, 927; Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood, 820)
