Salams' Mission is to "Serve the Ummah by bringing together the hearts of Muslims." We hope to achieve this Mission while safeguarding the dignity and respect of all Muslims who utilize our app. Our goal is to facilitate marriages, foster friendships, and network among all people within our diverse Ummah of 2 billion Muslims around the globe.

The Qur'an states that human beings are created in different tribes and nations so that they may know and understand each other.

"O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another." (49:13)

While achieving this purpose, we expect the Muslim community who utilize the Salams app to treat each other with kindness and respect. As a Muslim company, we promote the best actions and the best manners, as in the Hadith in which our Beloved Prophet (SAW) stated: "‏ إِنَّ مِنْ أَخْيَرِكُمْ أَحْسَنَكُمْ خُلُقًا.‏"

"The best among you in Islam are those with the best manners" (Saheeh Bukhari). (See Hadith No. 56 (B) Vol. 8).

We expect our members to treat each other correctly and kindly by upholding the teachings of Islam. If you fail to act appropriately, you could be permanently banned from the Salams app. Our etiquette expectations are listed below.
