Do not make it a habit to close the door with the aim that there are no guests coming, especially closing the way to install a portal.
A woman complained to Rasulullah ﷺ because of her husband’s behavior.
Her husband always invited people to come to his house and treat him so that the guests caused his wife to become bothersome and exhausted.
But he did not get any answer from the Messenger of Allah ﷺ about it.
After a while …
The Messenger of Allah (Rasulullah) ﷺ went to the house of the husband and wife, Rasulullah ﷺ said to the husband, “Verily I am a guest in your house today.”
How happy the husband to hear the words of the Prophet ﷺ, then he immediately approached his wife to preach that today’s guest is Rasulullah ﷺ.
The wife was happy because of the news, she immediately cooked delicious and delicious food.
He did that with great pleasure in his heart.
When Rasulullah ﷺ was leaving the house, he said to the husband:
قال للزوج عندما أخرج من بيتك دع زوجتك تنظر إلى الباب الذي أخرج منه
Rasulullah ﷺ said to the husband, “When I will come out from your house later, call your wife and order her to look to the door where I am out.”
So the wife saw the Messenger of Allah ﷺ coming out of her house followed by reptiles, such as scorpions and various other dangerous animals behind the Messenger of Allah ﷺ
His wife was surprised by what he saw in front of him.
فقال لها رسول الله هكذا دائما عندما يخرج الضيوف من بيتكِ يخرج كل البلاء والضرر والدواب من منزلكِ
Rasulullah ﷺ, said, “That is what happens every time a guest comes out of your house, then all the hostages, danger and all animals that endanger your house come out.”
Then this is the wisdom of glorifying guests and not complaining because of his arrival.
A house that many visitors visit is a home that is loved by God.
So beautiful is the house that is always open to small children or adults.
The house in which grace and various blessings come from the sky.
قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إذا أراد الله بقوم خيراً أهدى لهم هدية.
Rasulullah ﷺ said, “If Allah wants the good of one people, then Allah will give a gift to them.”
The Companions asked, “What gift is that, O Rasulullah?”
قال : الضيف ينزل برزقه، ويرتحل بذنوب أهل البيت “.
Rasullullah ﷺ said, “Guests will cause sustenance for the homeowner and erase the sins of the householder.”
وقال صلى الله عليه وسلم : كل بيت لا يدخل فيه الضيف لا تدخله الملائكة “.
Rasulullah ﷺ said, “A house that is not entered by guests (there are no guests), then the Angel of Grace will not enter it.”
وقال صلى الله عليه وسلم: “الضيف دليل الجنة”.
The Apostle ﷺ said, “A guest is a guide to heaven.”
وقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من كان يؤمن بالله واليوم الآخر فليكرم ضيفه
Rasulullah ﷺ said, “Whoever believes in Allah and the last day should glorify his guests.”
