Inviting guests


SHAFAQNA – Imam Reza (AS) described the duties of a host/hostess by saying: One day a man invited Imam Ali (AS) to his house. Imam Ali (AS) replied: I accept your invitation on 3 conditions. That man asked about the conditions and Imam Ali (AS) said: Do not provide anything for me from outside your house, prepare whatever you have inside your house for me and do not put any pressure and bother on your wife and children. That man agreed and then Imam Ali (AS) accepted his invitation [1].
