A benefit of saying salam when entering the home

Question

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

Answer

This is part of a 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)

التخريج من المصادر العربية

سنن الترمذي (٢٦٩٨): حدثنا أبو حاتم البصري الأنصاري مسلم بن حاتم قال: حدثنا محمد بن عبد الله الأنصاري، عن أبيه، عن علي بن زيد، عن سعيد بن المسيب، عن أنس بن مالك، قال: قال لي رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: «يا بني إذا دخلت على أهلك فسلم يكون بركة عليك وعلى أهل بيتك»: «هذا حديث حسن غريب».
