The Ruling on a Neighbor Parking His Car In Front of His Neighbor’s Door – Shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan

Question: Virtuous Shaikh: Is an analogy made between fixing a beam [on a wall]* and between a neighbor parking [his] car in front of the door of his neighbor?

Answer: “No, it is not allowed to park the car in front of the neighbor’s house. This is because it will block his path. However, he should park the car in the courtyard of a store which does not need the parking space. Not in front of the door [of his neighbor]. There is no harm [in parking in the courtyard of a store that does not need the parking space]. If he [the owner] needs the courtyard, then he is more deserving of it because it is his courtyard. Yes”.


* Translator’s Note:

The questioner is referring to the following Hadith:

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ :‏ لاَ يَمْنَعْ أَحَدُكُمْ جَارَهُ أَنْ يَغْرِزَ خَشَبَةً فِي جِدَارِهِ

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
None among you should prevent his neighbor from fixing a beam in his wall [Muslim no. 1609]
