Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

pls what is the islamic ruling concerning writing assalamu alaikum during communication or shorten it in differnt forms as how the people are shortening the salat to prophets?

it is better to write in full, but sometimes it is not practical (eg in a text message), so a shortened version is more practical. Ulema of the past would try to write it in full, but many are known to have used a shortened version of صلم for the durood, so we too should be allowed.
