THE RIGHTS OF NON-MUSLIM NEIGHBORS IN ISLAM
Posted by pqseo14 on December 9th, 2014
Islam gives great importance to healthy relationship with the neighbors. It encourages Muslims to treat their neighbors in a friendly and polite manner. It does not matter, if the neighbor is a Muslim or Non-Muslim, Islam demands its followers to treat them with respect and kindness. The mother of believers, Aisha (R.A), stated that she once inquired the Prophet (PBUH), “O Messenger of Allah! I have two neighbors. To whom shall I send my gifts?” He said, “To the one whose gate is nearer to you.”
It is evident from the Hadith quoted above that Muslims are not only encouraged to maintain cordial relationship with their neighbors but they are also asked to exchange gifts with them. It does not indicate that if it is prohibited to share gifts with Non-Muslim neighbors.
