One of the simplest methods to pray for others is to greet them; it is equal to fellow Muslims praying for one another.
Reading Of Assalamualaikum
Muslims often use the phenomenological term “Assalamualaikum,” which has a surprising meaning when given a deeper interpretation.
Because the phrase “assalamualaikum” includes a Muslim prayer. So that whenever we greet a Muslim with the words “assalam alikum,” we also immediately pray for their well-being, blessings, and eternal salvation.
Assalamualaikum is the traditional way a preacher welcomes the congregation. However, this phrase is equally appropriate for use in written correspondence and is not just utilized in lectures. Assalaamu alaykum is written as follows in full Arabic English translation and Transliteration
Assalamualaikum In Arabic Text

Assalamualaikum English Translation/Meaning

The Law Of Saying Assalamualaikum
The words “Assalamualaikum” can bind Muslims together, whether they are known or unknown. As a result, this comment is frequently said when speaking to Muslims.
As a result, it is sunah to say “assalamualaikum,” but the person hearing it must also respond. In the hadith, it is advised that passersby greet the seated person with assalamualaikum while the young should greet the elderly with the same greeting. And replied assalamualaikum should say “waalaikumsalam”
- Abu Umamah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, the best people to Allah are those who are first to greet with peace.”Source: Sunan Abī Dāwūd 5197
