Greeting someone while the iqaamat is on

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If the iqaamat has just started, and one joins the saff next to someone one knows, should one greet them or shake hands? Or ignore them because iqaamat is on?


A: It is permissible for him to make salaam, as well as not to return the salaam.

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