A companion was cursed because of disturbing his neighbor, so what will be the punishment for disturbing Hazrat-e Zahra (Pbuh)?
It was told that a group of companions cursed one companion because of his bad behavior toward his neighbor.
He had been also cursed by god.
It is not known if he was forgiven by god after he promised to the Prophet (Pbuh) and made a vow not to repeat this behavior again?
It’s been told that…
أولاً : المستدرك على الصحيحين ج 4 ص 183 :
7302 حدثنا أبو العباس محمد بن يعقوب ثنا أبو بكرة القاضي ثنا صفوان بن عيسى القاضي أنبأ بن عجلان عن أبيه عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه .. أن رجلا أتى النبي صلى الله عليه ( وآله ) وسلم فشكا إليه جاره فقال : يا رسول الله إن جاري يؤذيني ! فقال : اخرج متاعك فضعه على الطريق .. فأخرج متاعه فوضعه على الطريق فجعل كل من مر عليه قال : ما شأنك ؟! قال : إني شكوت جاري إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فأمرني أن أخرج متاعي فأضعه على الطريق ! فجعلوا يقولون : (( اللهــم العنــه اللهــم اخـــزه )) !! قال : فبلغ ذلك الرجل فأتاه فقال ارجع فوالله لا أؤذيك أبدا .
Abu-Harireh says: someone came to meet Prophet (Pbuh) and complained about his neighbor: O Rasoul-allah my neighbor disturbs me! Prophet (Pbuh) said: take your luggage out of your house…he did so. Everyone who passed his house and saw him would ask: what’s wrong? And he would say: I have complained from my neighbor to the prophet and he said to take my stuff out of the house. When they heard this, they would say to his neighbor: (May God curses him and humiliates him). When the neighbor heard the story, he came to the man’s door and asked him: please get back into your house; I would never disturb you again.
When the ruler heard this narration, he said: this narration is authentic if it is narrated by Muslim. But neither Muslim nor Bukhari narrated this, it has another verification;
ثانياً : المعجم الكبير للطبراني ج 22 ص 134 :
356 حدثنا عبيد بن غنام ثنا علي بن حكيم الأودي ثنا شريك عن أبي عمر عن أبي جحيفة قال : جاء رجل إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يشكو جاره .. فقال : اطرح متاعك على الطريق ! فطرحه فجعل الناس يمرون عليه و (( يلعنونـــه )) !! فجاء إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال : يا رسول الله ما لقيت من الناس ! قال : وما لقيت منهم ؟ قال : يلعنــوني ! قال : قد لعنــــك الله قبل الناس !! قال : فإني لا أعود .. فجاء الذي شكاه إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال له : ارفع متاعك فقد كفيت .
A man came to meet the Prophet (Pbuh) since he had a problem with his neighbor. The prophet (Pbuh) ordered him to put his stuff outside of the house. So people passed by and saw… then the neighbor came to see the prophet and said: how much I suffer from people! Prophet said: how do you suffer? He said: they curse me! His highness said: actually, god had cursed you before others did!! He said: O Rasoul-allah I shall never do that again. When the complainer came to meet the prophet; he (Pbuh) said: take your stuff, that’s enough (the problem is solved)
Third: see these references:
1 - جامع العلوم والحكم ج 1 ص 138 .
2 - شعب الإيمان ج 7 ص 80 .
3 - الترغيب والترهيب ج 3 ص 241 .
We conclude from these stories that the companions’ tradition in the time of Great Prophet (Pbuh) was to curse the cruel companion and the wrongdoers… and according to the narrations their act was admitted by the prophet (Pbuh)... because he didn’t rebuke them for cursing him, but he emphasized that God has cursed him too despite the fact that he is a companion! So this is a reason for the permission of cursing and punishing the bad, cruel companion.
Therefore, some questions are here:
If a companion who had disturbed his neighbor was cursed by God and the Prophet and other companions, so:
1. What would be expecting the person who hurt Hazrat-e Zahra (Pbuh) and she was martyred while she was angry and upset with him?!
2. What would the prophet (Pbuh) do with the person who was going with others to set Zahra’s (Pbuh) house on fire?
3. What would he do to the one who slapped Zahra’s (Pbuh) face and broke her side ribs and caused the abortion of her baby? Would he take this person to the heavens and suite him beside himself?
4. Was Hazrat-e Zahra (Pbuh) their neighbor or not?! According to Imam Hasan (Pbuh), she prayed all Friday nights till morning for her neighbors, didn’t she? Repeating al-Jar, Thom al-dar?
So according to the above documents, God’s and his prophet’s and all the believers curse may be on those people who didn’t maintain the rights of their neighbor—Hazrat-e Zahra (Pbuh)-- till the Day of Judgment.
