The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "He will not enter Paradise whose neighbour is not secure from his wrongful conduct." - Sahih Muslim, Hadith 15


The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "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." - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1334


The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Whoever believes in God and the Last Day should be generous to his neighbour." - Al-Muwatta, Volume 49, Hadith 22


The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "If anyone is pleased to love God and His Messenger or to have God and His Messenger love him, he should speak the truth when he says anything, fulfill his trust when he is put in a position of authority and be a good neighbor." - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1289

A man once asked the Prophet: "How can I know when I do well and when I do ill?" The Prophet replied: "When you hear your neighbors say you have done well, you have done well; and when you hear them say you have done ill, you have done ill." - Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1288


The Prophet (peace be upon him) and an old woman.

One old woman made a habit of throwing rubbish on Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) whenever he passed her house on the way to the mosque. However, he would pass silently by without showing any anger or annoyance.

And this was a regular, daily event.

One day when Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was passing by the house, the old woman was not there as usual to throw the rubbish. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) stopped and asked the neighbour about her well-being.

The neighbour then informed Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) that the old woman was sick in bed.

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) politely asked permission to visit the woman and when allowed, he entered the house.

The old woman thought that the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had come there to take his revenge when she was unable to defend herself because of sickness.

But the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) assured her that he had come to her, not to take any revenge, but to see her and to look after her needs, as it was the command of Allah that if any one is sick, a Muslim should visit him and should help him if his help is needed.

The old woman was greatly moved by this kindness and love of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

By the example of greatness of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), she understood that he was truly the Prophet of Allah and Islam was the true religion. She accepted Islam at once.
