May I ask what is the etiquette regarding replying back to salams by chat? May Allah reward you with goodness.
Answering back As-Salam (salamu alaykum) is fardh kifayah, so if one sister answered then this is sufficient for the whole group.
And as Sheikh Ibn Uthaymeen explained in Adab of As-salam in writings and messages:
- If you will reply to the message in writing then you say:
Wa alaykum asalam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.
- If you will not write a reply then it is enough to say it with your tongue as making duaa without writing it down.
So if you wish to reply to a Salam in any group you can just say it with your tongue and you will be making duaa to the sender, and rewarded for replying the Salam.
