Allah’s Messenger came one day with a gleaming countenance and said, "Jibreel came to me and said," (Verily your Lord says,) "Muhammad!

If a believer sends salam upon the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) the reward is much higher in rank and degree. Muslims who pay salam upon the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) will be given a reply and have the same returned to them by Almighty Allah and the angels. Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) stated:

Hadith 2

"There is no Muslim who invokes blessings upon me (salutes me), but Allah returns to me my soul till I respond to him in return."
