Meddling with the borders

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Allah has cursed the one who meddles with the borders of someones land.”

[Sahih Muslim]


Allah has cursed the one who changes the boundaries of a plot of land. This person may intentionally remove posts and change landmarks to alter the markings of a particular acreage making one smaller and another bigger than what they originally were. In gardens, properties, farms, estates, and even open paddocks.

The person who plays with these limits to create for himself or for others larger areas they are not entitled to is cursed by Allah. Only a selfish person with deficient Imaan and lack of hope in Allah would do such a thing.

And Allah knows best!
