A benefit of saying salam when entering the home


I was listening to a bayan where I heard that if you read salam when you enter your house, it will bring barkat to your house. Is there a Hadith to show that?


This is part of lengthy narration which has been recorded in various Hadith collections, in which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) offered many advices to Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) on various issues. The part you question is recorded in Sunan Tirmidhi and is as follows:

O my son! Whenever you enter your house, say salam. This will be a source of Barakah- blessing- for you and your family.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2698)

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has graded this Hadith as sound (hasan)
