Have you ever got an odd situation between you and your neighbours. The holy prophet Muhammad said:(Angel Gapriel came and kept ordering me to take care of my neighbours untill I thought that my neighbour will become an angel) the meaning from my translation, a jew neighbour of the holy prophet used to throw the garbage in front of the holy prophet's door every night to obstacle the prophet's way to praying in the dark, few days passed and the holy prophet didn't see any garbage,so he went to check on his jewish neighbour. when the neighbour saw the holy prophet he asked him, why are you coming!? the holy prophet said I came to check on you, when I didn't see the garbage I was worried abou you, the Jew became a muslim. if u have a bad neighbour what would you do discuss in groups
