عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سَلَامٍ قَالَ  لَمَّا قَدِمَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْمَدِينَةَ انْجَفَلَ النَّاسُ إِلَيْهِ وَقِيلَ قَدِمَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَجِئْتُ فِي النَّاسِ لِأَنْظُرَ إِلَيْهِ فَلَمَّا اسْتَبَنْتُ وَجْهَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَرَفْتُ أَنَّ وَجْهَهُ لَيْسَ بِوَجْهِ كَذَّابٍ فَكَانَ أَوَّلَ شَيْءٍ تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ أَنْ قَالَ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ أَفْشُوا السَّلَامَ وَأَطْعِمُوا الطَّعَامَ وَصَلُّوا بِاللَّيْلِ وَالنَّاسُ نِيَامٌ تَدْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ بِسَلَامٍ

كِتَاب إِقَامَةِ الصَّلَاةِ وَالسُّنَّةِ فِيهَا – أفشوا السلام وأطعموا الطعام

 

Abdullah ibn Salam رضى الله عنه said:

 

When the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم came to Madinah, the people rushed towards him and it was said, “The Messenger of Allah has come!”

 

I {ibn Salam} came along with the people to see him, and when I looked at the face of the Messenger of Allah, I realized that his face was not the face of a liar.

 

The first thing he said صلى الله عليه وسلم was,

 

O people, spread peace, give food, pray at night when people are sleeping and you will enter Paradise in peace.”

{Sunan Ibn Majah, Book 5, Sahih Hadith #1334}
