 لَا تَدْخُلُوا بُيُوتًا غَيْرَ بُيُوتِكُمْ حَتَّىٰ تَسْتَأْنِسُوا وَتُسَلِّمُوا عَلَىٰ أَهْلِهَا

ذَٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ۔ فَإِن لَّمْ تَجِدُوا فِيهَا أَحَدًا فَلَا تَدْخُلُوهَا حَتَّىٰ يُؤْذَنَ لَكُمْ ۖ وَإِن قِيلَ لَكُمُ ارْجِعُوا فَارْجِعُوا ۖ هُوَ أَزْكَىٰ لَكُمْ ۚ وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ عَلِيمٌ۔ لَّيْسَ عَلَيْكُمْ جُنَاحٌ أَن تَدْخُلُوا بُيُوتًا غَيْرَ مَسْكُونَةٍ فِيهَا مَتَاعٌ لَّكُمْ ۚ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تُبْدُونَ وَمَا تَكْتُمُونَ۔

Do not enter houses other than your own without obtaining willing permission and without first greeting the inmates with peace. That is better for you (and you have been given this commandment) that you may be heedful. But if you find nobody inside do not enter therein unless permission is granted to you (by the rightful owners or caretakers of the house).

And if you are told (by whom you wish see) to return (because they are not willing or free to see you at the moment), then return back; that would be more befitting for you. Indeed Allah is Well-Aware of all that you do.

It is no fault on your part to enter (freely) into non-residential houses (or places which do not belong to anyone) wherein some goods are lying belonging to you (or wherein you could find something useful for you). And Allah knows best what you reveal and what you conceal.

[Al-Quran Surah 24: Verse 27-29]

 فَإِذَا دَخَلْتُم بُيُوتًا فَسَلِّمُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِكُمْ تَحِيَّةً مِّنْ عِندِ اللَّهِ مُبَارَكَةً طَيِّبَةً

And when you enter (your) houses, greet your people (therein) with a salutation full of blessings and purity (as) prescribed by Allah.

[Al-Quran Surah 24: Verse 61]

وَإِذَا حُيِّيتُم بِتَحِيَّةٍ فَحَيُّوا بِأَحْسَنَ مِنْهَا أَوْ رُدُّوهَا

When you are greeted with a greeting, greet in return with a better greeting, or (at least) with the same greeting.   

[Al-Quran Surah 4: Verse 86]

إِذَا قِيلَ لَكُمْ تَفَسَّحُوا فِي الْمَجَالِسِ فَافْسَحُوا يَفْسَحِ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ

If you are asked to make room (for others) in your assemblies (or get-togethers), then make ample room; Allah will make ample room for you.

[Al-Quran Surah 58: Verse 11]

وَلَا تَسُبُّوا الَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ فَيَسُبُّوا اللَّهَ عَدْوًا بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ

And do not revile those whom they call upon besides Allah, lest they should spitefully revile Allah through lack of knowledge.

[Al-Quran Surah 6: Verse 108]

And do good to your parents, your family and relatives, al-yatama (i.e. orphans, widows and those who are left alone in the society), al-masakeen (i.e. the disabled or those who have lost their jobs or whose business has stalled or whose income fails to meet their needs), the near neighbours and the farther neighbours, colleagues & companions, Ibn-e-sabeel, (i.e. the needy wayfarer or the homeless son of the street) and ma malakat aymanukum, (i.e. servants and subordinates).

[Al-Quran Surah 4: Verse 36]

فَأَمَّا الْيَتِيمَ فَلَا تَقْهَرْ

Do not treat the orphan with any harshness or oppression.

[Al-Quran Surah 93: Verse 9]

 وَأَمَّا السَّائِلَ فَلَا تَنْهَرْ

And do not chide or drive away (any beggar or) anyone who seeks your assistance.

[Al-Quran Surah 93: Verse 10]

لَا تُبْطِلُوا صَدَقَاتِكُم بِالْمَنِّ وَالْأَذَىٰ كَالَّذِي يُنفِقُ مَالَهُ رِئَاءَ النَّاسِ

Do not render in vain your charity by reminders of your generosity or by hurting (the feelings of the charity receivers), like him who spends his wealth for a show off to people.

[Al-Quran Surah 2: Verse 264]

 وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَىٰ ۖ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ

[Al-Quran Surah 58: Verse 9]

 أَتَأْمُرُونَ النَّاسَ بِالْبِرِّ وَتَنسَوْنَ أَنفُسَكُمْ

Do you enjoin others to do good and forget (to do the same) yourself?

[Al-Quran Surah 2: Verse 44]

 لِمَ تَقُولُونَ مَا لَا تَفْعَلُونَ

Why do you say that which you do not do?

[Al-Quran Surah 61: Verse 2]

 كُونُوا قَوَّامِينَ بِالْقِسْطِ شُهَدَاءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوْ عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَوِ الْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالْأَقْرَبِينَ إِن يَكُنْ غَنِيًّا أَوْ فَقِيرًا فَاللَّهُ أَوْلَىٰ بِهِمَا فَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا الْهَوَىٰ أَن تَعْدِلُوا وَإِن تَلْوُوا أَوْ تُعْرِضُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرًا

For Allah’s sake, steadfastly stand up as witnesses in all fairness, even though it be against yourself or (against your) parents or (against your) relatives, and whether it be (against) someone rich or any poor. (Bear in mind) Allah is more regardful (and well-wisher) of them (than you think you are). Therefore, let not your emotional attachments or lust (for the worldly benefits) deviate you from justice.

For Allah’s sake, steadfastly stand up as witnesses in all fairness, and do not let the hatred or enmity of a people deviate you from justice. (Always) be just; this is closer to being a person of piety and integrity.

[Al-Quran Surah 5: Verse 8]

 وَلَا تَكُن لِّلْخَائِنِينَ خَصِيمًا

And do not be an advocate of the dishonest.

And when you judge between people, you should judge with justice.

[Al-Quran Surah 4: Verse 58]

And do good to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them any word of disrespect (or disgust), nor rebuke (or reproach) them but address them in gentle and respectful manner.
