I think a word is missing at the end of this sentence. It should say "Silakan MASUK" shouldn't it?


Assalamualaikum is not correct? What is difference between Assalamualaikum and Waalaikumsalam?


Waalaikumsalam is a response to Assalamualaikum. So Assalamualaikum means "Greetings" as an initial greeting, whereas Waalaikumsalam means "and to you too" as a response.


The phrase "please come in" is "silakan MASUK" in Indonesian, not just "silakan."

    "Waalaikumsalam, silakan." just means "Greetings to you, too, please." There should be a "masuk" after the "silakan" so that the Indonesian sentence reads "Waalaikumsalam, silakan masuk." Then it would translate to "Greetings to you, too, please come in."
