My Story - New neighbours

Assalamu-alaykum, friends,

There was a lot of noise coming from the house next door. There was van loads of furniture and people going in and out.

My Mum said , "Lets go and meet the new neighbours." So mum and I headed over.

When we went inside and met the new neighbour. My mum and her began chatting away. They chatted and chatted as if they knew each other for years.

Our neighbour mentioned that the gas company are unable to switch the gas on for another three days.

My mum said, "Don't worry! You can eat at our house until then."

When we got back home I asked my Mum, "Do you know our new neighbour from before?"

My mum said, "Of course not, but you must always be nice to your neighbours." PP

Lesson - Neighbour Rights

In history, rights are something that people have fought and died for. Rights are considered so important that denying people their rights can lead to the culprit being punished and being sent to jail.

We know our parents and elders have rights over us as well as our teachers. In fact everyone has rights and all rights have to be respected. However, there is another group of people who have rights over us which we often over look.

This group of special people are our neighbours. The Prophet (pbuh) taught us to respect our neighbours and fulfil their rights.

For example: if he requires a loan, oblige him; if he invites you, accept his invitation; if he becomes ill, visit him; if he needs assistance, help him; if he is in difficulty, console him; if he is happy, congratulate him and so on.

Story - Good Advice

Abu Bakr (r) was a great Sahabi. He was a very close companion of the Prophet (pbuh) and a very good friend. When things were difficult for Muhammad (pbuh) and the Muslims, he always stuck by the Prophet (pbuh) and went through the difficult times by his side.

After the Prophet (pbuh) passed away, Abu Bakr (r) became the leader of the Muslims - the first Khalifah. He ruled with such justice and farsightedness that even today people marvel at his great leadership.

He was very knowledgeable and had a great insight into Islam. People would come to him for advice and to solve disputes between one another. People would travel great distances to learn from this great man and to spend time in his company.

When he was the Khalifah he faced many difficult challenges and, by the grace of Allah, he rose to the challenges and did what was right and just.

Even in everyday life he offered great advice. For example, once Abu Bakr (r) was visiting his son Abdur Rahman. During his visit he saw Abdur Rahman quarrelling with his neighbour. When Abu Bakr (r) saw this he advised his son, not to fall out with his neighbour. He explained that if you quarrel with someone else he will later go away but your neighbour lives at your side.

Abdur Rahman ibn Abu Bakr learnt and understood the importance of fulfilling the rights of the neighbour from his father. Abu Bakr (r) had learned such valuable information from his great teacher and friend, Muhammad (pbuh). Abdur Rahman also benefited from these jewels of advice and wisdom. We too should learn a lesson from this that we need to respect the rights of our neighbours and always behave well with them.

Penpal Reflects

Assalamu-alaykum, we should look at things through the eyes of others. For example, our neighbours should not have to put up with loud noise, rudeness or bad behaviour. We should treat others how we expect to be treated. This is how a good Muslim community works. PP
