Hadith Explanation

Overstaying Welcome

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “It is not permissible for a guest to stay so long with the host as to cause him trouble.” [Al-Adab-ul-Mufrad]

It is praiseworthy to visit people and ask about them. It promotes feelings of Islamic brotherhood and increases love. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) likes us to show our affection for other Muslims and care for them.

However, one should keep in mind that the host should not be inconvenienced. Since we now have phones, call before you visit, and ask what a suitable time would be for you to visit. This way you avoid arriving at a time inconvenient for them. They are better prepared to receive you and can give you their full attention when you arrive.

Don’t overstay your welcome. Stay only as long as your host would like to have you around. Don’t become a burden on the host, or you risk making them and yourself sinful.
