“The best person in the sight of Allah is the one who is best to his companion. And the best neighbour in the sight of Allah is the one that is best to his neighbour.”

Imams Tirmidhi and Ahmad (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).
