لَّيْسَ عَلَى ٱلْأَعْمَىٰ حَرَجٌ وَلَا عَلَى ٱلْأَعْرَجِ حَرَجٌ وَلَا عَلَى ٱلْمَرِيضِ حَرَجٌ وَلَا عَلَىٰٓ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَن تَأْكُلُوا۟ مِنۢبُيُوتِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ ءَابَآئِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ أُمَّهَٰتِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ إِخْوَٰنِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ أَخَوَٰتِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ أَعْمَٰمِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ عَمَّٰتِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ أَخْوَٰلِكُمْ أَوْ بُيُوتِ خَٰلَٰتِكُمْ أَوْ مَا مَلَكْتُم مَّفَاتِحَهُۥٓ أَوْصَدِيقِكُمْ لَيْسَ عَلَيْكُمْ جُنَاحٌ أَن تَأْكُلُوا۟ جَمِيعًا أَوْ أَشْتَاتًا فَإِذَا دَخَلْتُم بُيُوتًا فَسَلِّمُوا۟ عَلَىٰٓ أَنفُسِكُمْ تَحِيَّةً مِّنْ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ مُبَٰرَكَةً طَيِّبَةً كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمُ ٱلْءَايَٰتِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ 61


61c.  But when ye enter houses, salute one another with a greeting from Allah, blessed and sweet. Thus Allah maketh clear His Revelations for you, that haply ye may understand. 61c.  Fa-‘izaa  dakhaltum-  buyuutan  fasalli-muu  ‘alaaa  ‘anfusikum  tahiyyatam-  min  ‘inDillaahi  mubaa-rakatan-  tayyibah.  Kazaalika  yubayyinUllaahu  lakumul-‘Aayaati  la-‘allakum  ta’-qiluun.  (Section 8)




The Muslims should live mutually cheerfully and happily, be well-wishers and fellow sufferers of one another, and try to keep one another glad every time. They should bear in mind that none should be caused any kind of trouble from any other. Every individual should guard fame and honor of all people.


At first, ways of keeping the society chaste and pure from evil matters have been described. Relative men and women should live carefully in the houses. It has been commanded: At first you should ask leave and salute, and then enter by keeping your eyes below, when you enter the house of any other. In this part of the verse under reference, it is commanded: Your first word to say should be ‘Assalaamu ‘alaykum, when you enter the houses of your relatives.


It is a very blessed and sweet Word sent by Allaah Almighty for pleasing others. There is a supplication of peace and safety in it for others. And it is very chaste means for disclosing own integrity and sympathy. Allaah Almighty causes to hear His Revelations clearly by means of His Chosen Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). He is Who has bestowed you sense. The first duty of the sense is that after hearing these verses, it should prepare practical path for the mankind in the light of these verses, by following of which, the mankind may succeed in the both worlds. If the sense did not perform this duty, then it did nothing in the world. It will be responsible of bringing the mankind unto destruction instead of goodness.
