Assalamu Alaikum

This is the common greetings of Muslim around the globe. Here in the Philippines, non-muslim thought its just a local language but its not. This greeting is an Arabic language.

As-Sal?mu `Alaykum (?????? ?????) is an Arabic language greeting used in both Muslim and Christian cultures. It means “Peace be upon you.” It is also transliterated as Assalamu ‘Alaikum or As-salaamu Alaikum. The traditional response is “wa `Alaykum As-Sal?m“, meaning “and on you be peace.”

This type of greeting is common in the Middle East; it is similar to the Hebrew greeting of shalom aleichem. (Wikipedia)

Did you know that Assalamu Alaikum is a simple prayer?

Everytime you greet somebody, you are wishing that his day will turn out the best in every way.

To all my blog readers – Assalamu Alaikum!

    fuck you mga muslims! except yung mga taga davao na muslims. yung mga taga labas. mga assholes! puro lang gulo. gusto nila ng peace pero uso kanila ang mga feuding clans. kung hindi nila kaya ang peace sa kanilang mga pamilya, what more kung buong mindanao? aminin mo man o hindi, sa koran, bawal kaya ang alak. bakit yung mga anak ng mga “datus” lagi nasa autoshop, malakas pa uminom at lagi nag-uumpisa ng gulo?

  5. to Oj: go away!!! please stop saying that. you don’t know what you are saying!
