Some Hadiths on Neighbors

Narrated Abu Shuraih Al Adawi: My ears heard and my eyes   saw the Prophet when he spoke, “Anybody who believes in Allah and the   Last Day, should serve his neighbor generously, and anybody who believes in   Allah and the Last Day should serve his guest generously by giving him his   reward.” It was asked. “What is his reward, O Allah’s   Apostle?” He said, “(To be entertained generously) for a day and a   night with high quality of food and the guest has the right to be entertained   for three days (with ordinary food) and if he stays longer, what he will be   provided with will be regarded as Sadaqa (a charitable gift). And anybody who   believes in Allah and the Last Day should talk what is good or keep quiet   (i.e. abstain from all kinds of dirty and evil talks).” – Sahih   Al-Bukhari, Volume 8, Number 48

 

Narrated Abu Hurayrah: Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon   him) said, “Who will accept those words from me and act upon them, or   teach people who will act upon them?” When he replied that he would he   took him by the hand and counting five characteristics, said, “If you   guard against the things which are forbidden, you will be the most devout of   men; if you are pleased with what Allah has allotted, you will be the richest   of men; if you are kind to your neighbour, you will be a believer; if you   like others to have what you like for yourself, you will be a Muslim; and do   not laugh immoderately, for immoderate laughter causes the heart to   die.” Ahmad and Tirmidhi transmitted it, Tirmidhi saying this is a   gharib tradition. – Al-Tirmidhi, Number 1334

 

Narrated Abu Dharr: Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him)   said: AbuDharr, when you prepare the broth, add water to that and give that   (as a present) to your neighbour. – Sahih Muslim, 1208

 

Narrated AbdurRahman ibn AbuQurad: The Prophet (peace be   upon him) performed ablution one day and his companion began to wipe   themselves with the water he had used. The Prophet (peace be upon him) asked   them what induced them to do that, and when they replied that it was love for   Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him) he said, “If anyone is   pleased to love Allah and His Messenger, (peace be upon him) or rather to   have Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him) love him, he should speak   the truth when he tells anything, fulfil his trust when he is put in a   position of trust, and be a good neighbour.” Bayhaqi transmitted it in   Shu’ab al-Iman. – Al-Tirmidhi, Number 1289

 

Narrated Abu Shuraih: The Prophet said, “By Allah, he   does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe!

Allah Most High gives worldly things   to those whom He loves and those whom He does not love, but He gives religion   only to those whom He loves, so he who is given religion by Allah has been   loved by Him. By Him in Whose hand my soul is, a man is not a Muslim till his   heart and tongue are submissive, and he is not a believer till his neighbour   is safe from injurious behaviour on his part.” Ahmad and Bayhaqi, in   Shu’ab al-Iman transmitted it. – Al-Tirmidhi, Number 1292

Whoever believes in Allah and   the Last Day, should be generous to his guest.  …..” – Malik   Al-Muwatta, Volume 49, Number 22

Narrated Abu Hurayrah: The Prophet said, “Whoever   believes in Allah and the Last Day, should not hurt his neighbor and whoever   believes in Allah and the Last Day, should serve his guest generously and   whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should talk what is good or keep   quiet.” – Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 8, Number 158
