It was unusual for the library to be this packed during school hours: sounds of doorsteps shuffling across the floor, students whispering to each other, padded bangs of books closing, and the dull beeping sound of books being borrowed. Nobody ever care that this place existed before, why is there suddenly so many people today? You thought as your gaze wandered around the library hall, searching for your friend who asked you to join her in the library to finish some homework.

Grabbing your shoulder from behind, your friend had already spotted you, she called “Y/N! Hey, we’re sitting over there.” She greeted you while pointing towards the table around the corner, with only two empty seats. “Ugh, the library is so packed today. All because of that new foreign kid.”

这时,那老者朝他微微躬身,右手抚胸,道了一声:“按赛俩目而来坤!”   梁亦清一惊,慌忙答礼,也是右手抚胸,微微躬身:“吾而来坤闷赛俩目!”   他们说的是什么?对于穆斯林来说,这是完全不必翻译的,前者是:“求真主赐给您安宁!”后者是:“求真主也踢安宁给您!”这是穆斯林见面时的相互祝福,表示具有共同的血统和信仰。这是全世界穆斯林的共同语言,无论他们走到天涯还是海角,都能凭借这熟悉的声音找到自己的同胞。

Just then, the old man raised his right hand to his heart, and bowed slightly. “As-salamu alaykum!” he announced. Startled, Liang I-ch’ing hastily returned the courtesy, placing his right hand over his heart and bowing slightly too. “Wa alaykumu s-salam!” What were they saying? For a Muslim, there’s no need to translate. The former means, “May Allah bestow peace upon you,” and the latter, “And may Allah also bestow peace upon you.” This is a blessing believers exchange upon meeting, signifying a shared ancestry and faith. It is the common language of Muslims worldwide, and whether they find themselves in a remote land or somewhere upon the sea, they can identify their fellow believers by virtue of these familiar phrases.
