Give roads it’s right! Something to think about….

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, ‘Beware! Avoid sitting on the roads.” They (the people) said, “O Allah s Apostle! We can’t help sitting (on the roads) as these are (our places) here we have talks.” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, ‘ l f you refuse but to sit, then pay the road its right ‘ They said, “What is the right of the road, O Allah’s Apostle?” He said, ‘Lowering your gaze, refraining from harming others, returning greeting, and enjoining what is good, and forbidding what is evil.

SubhanAllah! We have been commanded to lower our gaze when sitting on roads. How does one justify posting pictures of ladies on the side of roads? Even in a Hijab? On digital billboards? On websites?

Also, don’t throw trash on roads. This is harming others. Don’t spy, don’t go crazy commenting on someone else and saying whatever comes to your mind to hurt the other person while commenting online.
