Hadith of the day: The Prophet (PBUH) said, Beware of sitting on roads (ways). The people said: We have but them as sitting places. Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, If you have to sit there, then observe the rights of the way. They asked, What are the rights of the way? He (PBUH) said, To lower your gaze (on seeing what is illegal to look at), and (removal of harmful objects), returning greetings, enjoining good and forbidding wrong. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]. 1. This Hadith tells us that it is improper to sit on roadsides and passages in such a way which causes inconvenience to men and women who pass by. It is really very unfortunate that now we do not care about such things at all. 2. If sitting on roadside is indispensable at all, then it is essential to observe the requirements mentioned in the Hadith to justify the needful. 3. Some other Islamic etiquette mentioned in this Hadith have also been stated in other Ahadith. For instance, politeness of speech, sharing of someones burden, helping the oppressed and the troubled, guiding the wayward person to the right path, answering (in the prescribed manner) one who sneezes, etc.
