A Muslim should wish for their neighbours what they wish for themselves.
It means sharing their happiness and sorrow.
Further, it means to not spy on them and respect their privacy.
Not to gossip about them.
Not harm them in any way.
The neighbour holds a special status in Islam. Islam encourages Muslims to treat their neighbours in a gentle way that reflects the true and genuine spirit of Islam as exemplified in its tolerant aspect especially with people of other faiths.
It makes no difference whether the neighbours are Muslims or non-Muslims.
The Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) said, “There are Three categories of neighbours.
First: one who has Three rights upon you. This is the one who is a Muslim neighbour and also a relative.
Second: One who has two rights. A Muslim neighbour.
Third: The Kafir neighbour who has only the rights of a neighbour.”
