Why don't we greet Allah after salaah. After greeting the Angels after salaah, why can't we greet Allah? In the Quran it states that Allah will greet the people of Jannah firdous with Assalaam wa laykoom. We must greet back.Also on the Day of Qiyamah when Allah is angry, the Prophet will ask Allah to be peaceful. In otherwords he'll wish peace on Him. Why can't we do that now already?Shuckran for your time Salaam

Answer (Sheikh Nadvi):
If you ponder in first Dua at sitting time it says Attahiyatulillah, which means greeting to Allah. So we already did it.
Allah Almighty knows best.

I still think it's better to greet Allah after greeting the Angel's though, it just make sense since you ending your Salaah.
I know people are going to have a fit, sorry if I offended anyone.
