I had a quarrel with my friend. But, as I had a habbit of greeting her by saying Salaam. So, I did that. But she even after hearing me did not replied me back. I felt very bad.

So, are there any rulings in Islam when someone ignores your Salaam?

  • Then she has performed a sin. – Medi1Saif Mar 13 at 17:59

With some exceptions, replying to Salam is obligatory:

وإذا حييتم بتحية فحيوا بأحسن منها أو ردوها إن الله كان على كل شيء حسيبا

And when you are greeted with a greeting, greet [in return] with one better than it or [at least] return it [in a like manner]. Indeed, Allah is ever, over all things, an Accountant.

Quran 4:86

If someone did not reply to you then:

  • You should not be discouraged as you have done what was required of you and you will be rewarded for it. There are traditions that the angels would return your greeting. طبراني , ابن السني
  • You should advise the other person to reply and inform them of their obligation.
  • You should forgive them \ waive your right upon them. الأذكار

Well, when I was a kid, my mama told me that if someone doesn't respond to your salaam , then Allah will take care of his jannah.
