Abu Umamah Sudaiy bin `Ajlan Al-Bahili رضی اللہ عنہ  reported: The Messenger of Allah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم said, "The person nearest to Allah is one who is the first to offer greeting.''  [Abu Dawud].


The degree of a man's humbleness and modesty will be measured by the degree of his nearness to Allah. One who is nearer to Allah is always the first to offer As-Salam to others, while others who are proud do not do so.
