hi alex. and all. and, and on you, be peace

As-Salāmu `Alaykum (السلام عليكم) is an Arabic spoken greeting used by Muslims who are followers of the religion Islam. The term Salam in Arabic means “Peace”. It can also be transliterated as Assalamu ‘Alaikum or As-salaamu Alaikum meaning “Peace be upon you”. The traditional response is “wa `Alaykum As-Salām”, meaning “and on you be peace”.

(It is also stated that one should give the Salam greeting upon entering a house, even if the house is empty. This is based upon the verse of the Qur’an:

“But when you enter the houses, greet one another with a greeting from Allah (i.e. say: As‑Salaamu ‘Alaykum — peace be on you), blessed and good.” (al-Noor 24:61)
