Responding to Salams in emails and SMS
Posted: 8 Rajab 1434, 18 May 2013
Q.) If somebody begins his e-mail or his SMS (text message to a phone) with "Assalamu aleikum", will it be wajib for the recipient to reply with "wa alaikum salam"?
And what about the sender just writes "Salam" rather than "Assalamu aleikum", will it be wajib to reply in this case?
And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
