Treat your guests!
805

Allah Almighty said Ibrahim (alayhi salaam) in the revelation: "Treat your guests!" After that Ibrahim became fry lamb for each coming to visit him. Allah Almighty has repeatedly said: "Treat your guests!" After that Ibrahim (alayhi salaam) began to cut the calf for each coming to visit him. Allah Almighty has repeatedly said: "Treat your guests!" After that Ibrahim (alayhi salaam) began to cut a camel for each coming to visit him. When Allah Almighty said again: "Treat your guests!"  Ibrahim was amazed and began to personally serve the guests.

Thereupon Allah Almighty said Ibrahim (alayhi salaam) in the revelation: "Now, you treated guests".

(Ruhul-Bayan 9/161)

EDIFICATION:

One of the scholars said: "Any person, even if he is the Sultan should not be ashamed to serve his guest, father or husband".

"The leader of the people is the one who serves them".

For the meeting and guest entertainment provided great rewards. For example, in one of the hadith:

"Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let he treats his guest".

From this history becomes clear that, if possible, a person should care for the guests. This is the Sunnah. It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) himself serving his guests.

Our ancestors called those who came to them, "guest of Allah" and competed with each other, as they knew that gives the adoption of the guest entertainment.
