VERY RARE WOOL "SALAAM THE FEZ .This fez has educational,psycological,spiritual and masonic implications.Assalamu Alaykum is generally accompanied with another gesture. In some parts people put a hand on their heart as they shake hands and greet. Also, it is considered impolite or uneducated to use the shorter greeting of 'Salam' vs the full greeting of 'As-salam-o-alaikum'. In Afghanistan and Iran, Salām is a simple greeting. This means Peace and Health, and is used similarly to "Peace be upon you" in English-speaking cultures. In Amharic, the term "Selam" is used in place of "Tadias" which is the equivalent of "What's up". The word "Selam" has the same meaning in Amharic as in Arabic which is "peace". In Arabia, it is associated with shaking right hands and then possibly two or three light cheek to cheek kisses, alternating sides. In Azerbaijan, many religious people use this statement and shake hands and it is the same for saying "goodbye"; more secular and non-religious people say "Salam" as an equivalent to "Hello" or "Hi". In Pakistan, the greeting is also associated with shaking right hands and is also often accompanied with a hug when meeting infrequently (only between the same gender). In some parts people put a hand on their heart as they shake your hand and greet. Also, it is considered impolite or uneducated to use the shorter greeting of 'Salam' vs the full greeting of 'As-salam-o-alaikum'. In India the greeting is accompanied by raising the right hand to the chest (arz hai "regards"; adaab "respect"). In Bangladesh Salām is a simple greeting. This means Peace and Health, and is used similarly to "Peace be upon you" in English-speaking cultures. In Indonesia, the greeting is usually accompanied with a kind of two-handed "handshake", whereby the shaker's palms remain closed, and the fingers alone open to admit the other's proffered hand- which briefly touches the proffered's fingers or fingertips alone. In this way more adherent males and females may greet though touching- but remain true to the Islamic or cultural teachings forbidding physical contact between the genders. Occasionally, the right-hand will touch the left-breast or heart area after this In Indonesia's Javanese / Sasak culture, a remnant of feudalism is retained, where an elder's proffered right hand is taken and pressed briefly against the forehead. Some may instead briefly kiss the hand or the main ring. This is very common for young children to greet older relatives (of their parents' age, though, on occasion, if very polite children, younger). In Kazakhstan, many Kasecular and non-religious people say "Selam" as an equivalent to "Hello" or "Hi". This use has extended to the Internet with the abbreviated "slm" being commonly used amongst Turks on social networking websites. Pronunciation  The term as-salāmu ʿalaykum varies slightly in pronunciation from country to country, but always remains universally intelligible. Many people today omit the initial 'As' and pronounce the word as "Salaamu `Alaykum". In many parts of the world, indeed in most of the non-Arabic speaking countries the greeting is pronounced [asalaːmʊ aleɪkʊm] or in a similar variation. This is especially common in Africa, the South Asia, South East Asia and in Eastern Europe--not to mention North America. In some other cases, it omits the "u" at the end of "as-salaam" to make it shorter and less formal. For an example of different pronunciations, Pakistanis tend to emphasise the 'ssalam aLAYkum', whereas Indonesian pronunciation is monotonous until the last syllable ('assalamuAlaiKUM'). Amongst various Arabic speaking countries there is also a varied pronunciation. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-10236415238
