Hadith on Neighbors: Good neighborliness better than voluntary worship

Abu Huraira reported: A man said, “O Messenger of Allah, a woman prays in the night, fasts in the day, does many deeds and gives charity, yet she harms her neighbors with her tongue.” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “There is no good in her. She is among the people of Hellfire.” The man said, “O Messenger of Allah, another woman prays the obligatory prayers and gives bits of food in charity, yet she does not harm anyone.” The Prophet said, “She is among the people of Paradise.”

عن أبي هريرة قِيلَ لِلنَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ فُلانَةً تَقُومُ اللَّيْلَ وَتَصُومُ النَّهَار وَتَفْعَلُ وَتَصَّدَّقُ وَتُؤْذِي جِيرَانَهَا بِلِسَانِهَا فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لا خَيْرَ فِيهَا هِيَ مِنْ أَهْلِ النَّارِ قَالُوا وَفُلانَةٌ تُصَلِّي الْمَكْتُوبَةَ وَتَصَّدَّقُ بِأَثْوَارٍ وَلا تُؤْذِي أَحَدًا فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ هِيَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ
