Hadith Explanation

On with Right, Off with Left

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When one of you puts on his sandals let him start with his right, and when he takes them off let him start with his left; let the right be the first to be put on, and let the left be the first to be taken off.” [Sunan Abu Dawud]

Muslims are disciplined in all matters. This includes putting shoes on and taking them off. Everything reminds them that they have been sent to this world to reach for lofty goals. A person who is disciplined about the minute matters of life cannot be indisciplined about the purpose of life and serving its higher goals. It is not possible that a person, who takes care in how to put on and take off shoes, be chaotic in running the rest of his/her life.
