An peace onto you and God's mercy and His blessings


Explanation:
"As-salaamuu alaykum" is the standard muslim greeting (not exclusively Arabic, it is also used in Persian,Turkish etc.), meaning "Peace onto you". The reply is "Wa alaykumu 's-salaam", which means "And onto you peace". "wa rahmatu 'llaahi wa barakaatuh(u)" is often added to strengthen the expression. Roughly equivalent to "Hello!" - "Well hello there!" :o)
