Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says, “When the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) were [walking/travelling] together and a tree came between them and some went to the right and others to the left of the tree, they would greet each other with salam once again when meeting.”


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
