Be Quiet While Others Are Asleep

If you enter a place where people are asleep, whether at night or during the day, be quiet and gentle. Be considerate. Do not cause any undue noise when entering or exiting. Rasulullah [Sallallahu álayhi wa sallam] said, “Whoever is deprived of gentleness is deprived of all sorts of goodness.”

Sayyiduná Al-Miqdad Ibn Al-Aswad [Radiallahu anhu] said, “We used to keep aside the Prophet’s [Sallallahu álayhi wa sallam] share of the milk and when he came back at night, he would greet us with a voice loud enough for those who are awake to hear, without disturbing those who were asleep.” [Sahih Muslim and Sunan Tirmidhi]

In addition, whenever Rasulullah [Sallallahu álayhi wa sallam] used to offer Sálah at night, he would recite the Qur’án with a voice that pleased those who were awake, without disturbing those who were asleep.
