Seeking Entrance

O you who have believed, do not enter houses other than your own houses until you ascertain welcome and greet their inhabitants. That is best for you; perhaps you will be reminded.
And if you do not find anyone therein, do not enter them until permission has been given you. And if it is said to you, “Go back,” then go back; it is purer for you. And Allāh is Knowing of what you do. [An Nur:27-28]

Upon reading the command of how to enter a persons home I realized how much Islam protects a person in every aspect of their life. Allah (swt) does not want harm for anyone in any situation. We are told to knock three times and if no one answers then we should leave and not ring the doorbell until it breaks. There may be a reason for why the person does not want to let us in or maybe they are truly not at home. We should also let the person know who we are and when we are coming and not make surprise visits that catch people off guard.
Also if we are told to return back because the person is busy we usually get offended and think we will never visit such and such again. However, we are told it is purer for us because there is a reason the person turned us back. Their home is a means of relaxing for them and we should not impose.
