`A’isha (may Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allahs Messenger (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
Gabriel impressed upon me (the kind treatment) towards the neighbor (so much) that I thought as if he would soon confer upon him the (right) of inheritance.
- The Hadith emphasizes the rights due to ones neighbor.
- All Muslims should pay utmost attention to their neighbors and treat them kindly and gently. They should do their best to prevent any harm that may afflict them, visit them if they are sick, congratulate them on happy occasions and console them in case of misfortunes.
