6 Strangers In 6 Situations

The Prophet ﷺ said,

“Six things are strangers in six situations;

The mosque is a stranger amongst people who do not pray;
the Qur’an is a stranger in a household where it is not read;
the memorised Qur’an is a stranger in the heart of an open sinner (fasiq);
a righteous Muslim woman is a stranger in the hands of an oppressive husband of bad character;
a pious Muslim man is a stranger in the hands of an evil wife of bad character;
and a scholar is a stranger amongst a group of people who do not listen to him.” Then he said, “Verily Allah the Exalted will not look at them on the Day of Judgement in a merciful manner.”
