Assalaamualaykum, Can a questioner do
salaam to an Alim before asking any question
to him?

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

Greeting the Mufti with Salaam before asking
the question is among the excellent acts
which a person should be keen to do. A
Prophetic narration is reported in this
regard; it reads: "Salaam should be said
before the question, and whoever asks you
the question before greeting you with Salaam
do not answer him." [Ibn ‘Adiyy and others]
Ibn Al-Qayyim said: “It is reported
from the Prophet that he was not used
to give permission to enter for someone who
does not start with Salaam (while asking
permission). It is also reported that he
said: “ Do not give permission to enter for he
who does not start with Salaam. ” The best
thing in this context is what is reported by
At-Tirmithi that Kaladah ibn Hanbal ,
may Allah be pleased with him, said: “ I
entered upon the Prophet , and I did
not say Salaam and I did not seek permission
to enter, so the Prophet said: “Return
[go out] and say: “As-Salaamu ‘Alaykum, shall
I enter?”
Finally, it should be mentioned that this is in
accordance with the principal that is agreed
upon, which is the excellence of spreading
Salaam and the desirability of taking the
initiative to say it first [before someone else
says it to you].

Allah Knows best.
