• three • things • that • cause • firm • love •

ثلاث يثبتن لك الود في صدر أخيك أن تبدأه بالسلام و توسع له في المجلس و تدعوه بأحب الأسماء إليه

Three things will firmly place love in your brother’s chest (for you): that you be the first to give (him) Salaams, that you make a space for him in a seated gathering, and that you call on him with the best of names.

‘Umar bin al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him)

    wa iyaakom

    This statement can be found in Ibn ‘Abdil-Birr’s “Adab-ul-Mujaalasah” on page 31, printed by Daar-us-Sahaabah li-Turaath. The main source is from “Bahjatul-Majaalis” [1/43].
