Which act in Islam is the best?

السلام عليكم
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al-As (peace be upon him) reported:

A man asked the messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم ), “Which act in Islam is the best?”

He (صلى الله عليه و سلم ) replied, “To feed (the poor and needy) and to greet those whom you know and those whom you do not know.”

[Al Bukhari and Muslim]

hey if you can, can you post some more hadiths in regarding greeting others? some short one...that can probably fit in a text message? i think more people should know that it's good to greet others, the islamic way of greeting others, even if you don't know them. who knows? once they know how good it is, they might start too (if they don't already do so!) =D Xoxo!!!
