What are the rights of both guests and hosts?
According to Shariah, the rights of a host towards their guest include expressing gratitude for their hospitality, as Allah Ta’ala values those who appreciate others. Additionally, the host has the right to expect the guest to respect their privacy and keep confidential any knowledge gained during their interaction. It is the host’s right that their guest maintains the sanctity of their home and does not betray their trust. Furthermore, the guest should not overstay their welcome, abiding by the prescribed length of three days as dictated by Shariah for a guest’s stay, to avoid becoming a burden upon the host.
