Guest is one of the greatest blessings of abundant blessing of God. Every new comer guest brings his livelihood from God with him. God extends livelihood of that house where guests come. So one should serve the guest open heartedly .The service of guest is an obligation.
Hospitality the guests should be done in good manners. It has degrees and rewards from God, there it is the sign of; social honour and grace, has great value among people.
According to the Habit of the Holy Prophet (SAW); “Service of guest should be done for 3 days. It is an obligation. When he leaves we should go to the door for saying him “Good Bye”.
The guest has priority on the host. Honour of guest is the duty of host. Hospitality, where increases the honour and grace of individuals, there it takes the nations to the highest peaks. The nations get good status in the world.
The Holy Prophet (SAW) served the guests in good manners. He (SAW) manages the food, rest and comfortable stay for the guests.
Once a guest came to a sohabi’s home .The host has food only for one person. There were only two breads. If the host eats the guest has nothing to eat. The wife of the host told the worry to her husband. In this situation the host told his wife, while serving the dinner, you blow the lamp off, for repairing. Thus the guest ate heartedly and host remained hungry. This was the way of the hostness of those people.
Another incident in Islamic History shoes that the guest is blessing in every case of life. Once in Baghdad, the son of merchant was killed by someone. Police was raiding in whole city to arrest the murderer. The killer while running away from police reached at the door of that merchant and asked for shelter. He allowed him to come in. He served him with milk. When police move away and darkness descended on, he paid some money and said that you are killer my son, but at this time you are my guest and I am your host. And the guest is blessing of God. Now neither I can hand you over to police not kill you, because you are my guest. Now, please take this money and search for new shelter. This was the hostness of the guests and this hostness is served just thinking that The guests are blessings of God. We should show great respect and care to them.
