Brief Comments of Shaikh Ibn Baaz on Saheeh al-Bukhaaree #12

Begin every good thing with the right-hand side

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

Imaam al-Bukhaaree رحمه الله said:

Book of Prayer: Chapter: Starting from the right for entering the Masjid

And Ibn `Umar (when entering) would begin with his right foot, and when exiting, would begin with the left foot.

Narrated `Aaishah: “The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم loved to start everything from the right-hand side (for good things) whenever it was possible in all his affairs; for example: during purification, combing and wearing the shoes.”[1] [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (426) and Saheeh Muslim (401)]

Shaikh Ibn Baaz رحمه الله said:

[1] From the sentence (of Ibn `Umar), it is referring to entering the Masjid, and it is a great thing*, whereas while entering a toilet, its opposite is done (i.e. entering with the left foot). Similarly while wearing the shoes, socks, and dress (to begin with the right side). Also while entering the house, the person should begin with his right foot, because the house is better than (living) on the street.

*The Shaikh is referring to the following Hadeeth:

Abu Hurairah reported that the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “The parts of land dearest to Allaah are its Masaajid, and the parts most hateful to Allaah are the markets.” [Saheeh Muslim (1082)]
