Keeping the Neighbour Safe From Ones Evil

Abu Hurayrah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) 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 al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Another narration of Muslim is: The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “He will not enter Jannah whose neighbour is not secure from his wrongful conduct.”

Commentary:

This Hadith reveals that hurting or troubling a neighbour is such a serious offence that it causes Allah’s Wrath, and thus punishment in Hell.

And Allah Knows Best!
