They said salaama…

As-salaamu ‘alaykum warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuh,


When the angels came to Ibraheem (‘alayhi salaam) with glad tidings it is said:

قَالُواْ سَلَـماً قَالَ سَلَـمٌ


…They said: salaaman (greetings/peace) and he answered salaamun (greetings/peace)…


Concerning Ibraheem (‘alayhi salaam)’s response, the scholars said ‘salaamun’ is better than what the angels had greeted with him, this is because the latter (meaning salaamun) alludes to affirmation and eternity.
