hello.

I´ve got a quick question, can "selam" be also used to say "goodbye"? as farewell?

I´ve never paid attention to this before.

Although it is not commonly used, there are some people saying it to eachother when they leave , as in the meaning of  " Bye ", however  it has deeper meaning which is " May God´s peace be upon you ". Obviously ,it is religious way of saying " bye " [be in peace]

I havent heard it used in daily speech that way. But we say "selametle".

Ex: Selametle git.

Go within peace.

 

Or you can just say selametle without saying git.

I took it as  " Selamun Aleykum " .I got it that way when I said there are some people saying it when they leave.

But if he meant just  " Selam"  than of course people don´t say just Selam when they leave.

Cus there is no chance for him ever heard  Selam used when two Turks leaving eachother.
