Writing the Salaam incorrectly

Q: Please explain the severity of writing Salams, Slmz, Salam Alaykum, Slms etc instead of writing Assalamu Alaykum. People think it’s no big deal when you tell them. From a scholarly point of view please elaborate why these abbreviations and versions of conveying Salam are incorrect?


A: To write the Salaam in this manner is incorrect.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
