Are You A Good Muslim Neighbour?? This Is What Your Deen Says..

20 Jan

1) Prohibition of Harming Neighbours:
The Prophet, (Peace and blessings be
upon him) said: “By Allah, he is not a
believer! By Allah, he is not a believer!
By Allah, he is not a believer.’’ It was
asked, “Who is that, O Messenger of
Allah?’’ He said, “One whose neighbour
does not feel safe from his evil” (Sahih
Bukhari).
2) Recommendation to treat neighbours
well: The Messenger of Allah, (Peace
and blessings be upon him), said: “Jibril
kept recommending me to treat my
neighbour well until I thought that he
would tell me to make him one of my
heirs” (Bukhari: 6014).
3) Caring for your neighbours: Abu
Dharr, May Allah be pleased with him,
reported: The Messenger of Allah,
(Peace and blessings be upon him),
commanded me thus, “O Abu Dharr!
Whenever you prepare a broth, put
plenty of water in it, and give some of it
to your neighbours” (Sahih Muslim).
4) Co-operation with your neighbours:
Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased
with him, reported that the messenger
of Allah, (Peace and blessings be upon
him), said: “No-one should prevent his
neighbour from fixing a wooden peg in
his wall.” Abu Huraira said (to his
companions), “Why do I find you averse
to it? By Allah, I certainly will narrate it
to you” (Sahih Bukhari),
5) Do not eat your full while your
neighbour is hungry: The Messenger of
Allah, (Peace and blessings be upon him)
says:” He is not a believer who eats his
fill whilst his neighbour beside him goes
hungry” (Bukhari).
6) Never scorn your neighbour’s gift:
Sahih Abu Hurayrah reported that the
Prophet, (Peace and blessings be upon
him), used to say: “O Muslim women!
No one should scorn the gift of a
neighbour, even if it is (only) a sheep’s
foot” (Bukhari: 6017).
7) Harming a neighbour may lead to
Hell-fire: Abu Hurayra, may Allah be
pleased with him reported: A man
asked, “O Messenger of Allah! There is a
woman who prays, gives charity and
fasts a great deal, but she harms her
neighbours with her speech (by
insulting them)” He said: “She will go to
hell”. The man said: “O messenger of
Allah! There is (another) woman who is
well-known for how little she fasts and
prays, but she gives charity from the
dried yoghurt she makes and she does
not harm her neighbours”. He said:
“She will go to paradise” (Ahmad, vol. 4,
p. 166, Ibn Hibban, hadith no. 2054).
Tolerance when treating neighbours:
Mutarrif said: “I heard that you (he
means Abu Dharr, may Allah be pleased
with him) have said that the Prophet,
(Peace and blessings be upon him), said:
“Allah loves three and hates three.’”
Abu Dharr said, “I do not think that I
would tell lies about the Messenger of
Allah.”
Mutarrif said, “Then who are the three
whom Allah loves?” Abu Dharr (quoting
the Prophet, (Peace and blessings be
upon him)) said: “A man who fights for
the sake of Allah, with perseverance and
hoping for reward from Him, and fights
until he is killed, and you find this in the
Book of Allah.’ Then he recited: “Truly
Allah loves those who fight in His cause
in battle array, as if they were a solid
cemented structure.” [al-Saff 61:4]
Mutarrif asked, “Then who?”
He said, “A man who has a bad
neighbour who annoys and disturbs him,
but he bears it with patience and
forbearance until Allah ends the matter
either during his lifetime or upon the
death of either of them.”
