Doing good to the neighbor
Posted March 3, 2015on:
Neighbor’s rights are many and are ordained by Allah. The holy Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h)said; “Gabriel advised me so much regarding neighbor’s rights that I began to suspect that he would be included among the heirs”
The first and foremost and the principal right the neighbor is not to cause him pain, trouble or sorrow; moreover, helping him in his need, sending him occasional gifts, sharing his joys and sorrows are all meritorious and rewarding acts. If a neighbor is hungry, regardless of color cast or religion, rich or poor, it is not meritorious to feed him but also a bounden duty.
Cordial and courteous behavior is very pleasing to Allah and is also rewarding.
