Hadith on Manners: Inclusive Conversation in Islam

📖Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2825
Narrated ‘Abdullah: that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Whenever there are three of you, then let two not converse in exclusion of their companion.”

  • The hadith means that when three people are together, it is not appropriate for two of them to have a private conversation or exclude the third person from their discussion. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) encouraged unity and inclusion in social interactions, and this hadith emphasizes the importance of treating everyone with respect and not leaving anyone out. It also highlights the value of maintaining harmonious relationships with others, which is an essential aspect of Islamic teachings on good character and social conduct.
