    yes , i agree with hany
    initially it used to be an islamic greeting in the early times of islam, then with the expantion of islam in all the arabic peninsula ,it became
    an arabic greeting too
    now it is an arabic greeting wich includes non muslims arab-people greetings
    of course non arab muslims use the greetings they have in their mother tongue

    Is not for Muslims
    Why all of you say yes, this is a mistake
    True, they are greeting Muslims but that does not mean she can't be used
    you can use it
    But better to use the other greeting ^.^
