Our Guests

Al-Sa’ib ibn Abdullah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said to him, “O Sa’ib, look at the character of your deeds in the time of ignorance and continue them in Islam: honor the guest, be generous to the orphan, and be good to your neighbor.”

Abu Shuraih reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him honor his guest and recompense him.” They said, “O Messenger of Allah, what is his recompense?” The Prophet said, “It is for a day and a night, as good hospitality is for three days and after that it is charity.” And the Prophet said, “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him speak goodness or remain silent.”

In another narration, the Prophet said, “It is not permissible for the guest to overstay his welcome, such that he burdens his host.”
