Greet or Recite? – Shaykh Saaleh Fawzaan al Fawzaan, may Allah preserve him
Q: If I’m reciting the Qur’an then some one comes and sends the greeting of salaam (i.e. – saying ‘as-salaamu alaikum’) upon me, should I return the greeting of salaam or complete the ayah?
A: ‘Complete the ayah then return the salaam to them. And it is not legislated to send salaam upon the one reciting the Qur’an because this occupies them with that (the greeting) and interrupts the recitation. So, send the salaam upon them when they bring the recitation to an end.’
Translation: Abu Mohamed Abd Kareem Hagedorn
