Who should greet first?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Could you reference the narration?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The young should greet the old, the passer by should greet the sitting one, and the small group of persons should greet the large group of persons”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
