Greeting others after short intervals

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) reported in the Hadith in respect of the person who was at fault in performing his Salat (prayer): He came to the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and greeted him. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) ┬áresponded to the greeting and said, “Go back and repeat your Salat because you have not performed the Salat (properly).” He again performed Salat as he had prayed before and came to the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and greeted him. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) responded to the greetings (and repeated his words to him). This act of repeating (the Salat and the Salam) was done thrice.

[Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary:

We benefit from this Hadith that one can greet others after short intervals.

And Allah knows best!
