Right Way: To Start From The Right (Hadith No. 168)


Do you have a habit of starting everything from the right side? Eating with the right hand, washing the right side of the body first while taking a bath, using the right hand to give/take, preferring the one sitting/standing on your right etc. It’s a good habit! :)

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 168:

Narrated Um-‘Atiya:

that the Prophet at the time of washing his deceased daughter had said to them, “Start from the right side beginning with those parts which are washed in ablution.”

This Hadith shows the importance of today’s title. Even a dead body should be washed starting from its right side.

Lesson: develop the habit: Keep right. :D

  1. We must start doing ourselves so that others follow us. We must teach our children and develop this habit in them by doing it ourselves not by forcing them .

  2. Raghib Abdul-Shakoor

    Starting from the right side is a very good habit to do and it should always be maintain to do for the best of our abilities.
