Greeting the Children

Greeting the Children

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported that he passed by some children and greeted them. Then he said: "Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) used to do the same." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
Commentary: By greeting children, we please their hearts and also vent our modesty. Besides, the importance of  As-Salam is unconsciously felt by them. Above all it is the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) and so we are supposed to put it into practice.
Ref.: Imam Al-Nawawi's Riyad-us-Saliheen # 862.

As soon as you die, your identity becomes a "BODY".
People use phrases like: "Bring the Body", "Lower the Body in the Grave", "Take the Body to the Grave Yard", etc.
People don't even call you by your name, whom you tried to impress the whole life.
Live a Life to impress the Creator and not the Creation.
