Salamun alaikum in ritual sallat

Two days ago, my little niece asked me why we turn right and left at the end of our ritual salat? In short she wanted to know who we greet when say 'assalamun alaikum wa ramatullah" turning right and left.

Maybe some bright minds could help clarify this.

Is it the angel on each shoulder who is being greeted?

In Africa, particularly in Uganda, we give much more practical meaning to the ritual. We shake hands with the person on one side then do the same on the other side, only then get up. Thus form a bond of ‘brother hood’ of congregation in the mosque. Fills one with the joy, to have been greeted by ‘brothers’. May be they are the angels that do so.
Unfortunately ‘sisters’ still pray separately!
