Al Ahzaab V.49-58
Mannerism from Allah
O you who have believed, do not enter the houses of the Prophet except when you are permitted for a meal, without awaiting its readiness. But when you are invited, then enter; and when you have eaten, disperse without seeking to remain for conversation. Indeed, that [behavior] was troubling the Prophet, and he is shy of [dismissing] you. But Allāh is not shy of the truth. And when you ask [his wives] for something, ask them from behind a partition. That is purer for your hearts and their hearts. And it is not [conceivable or lawful] for you to harm the Messenger of Allāh or to marry his wives after him, ever. Indeed, that would be in the sight of Allāh an enormity. [Al Ahzaab:53]
There is an incident that occurred before this verse was revealed to the Prophet (saw). When the Prophet (saw) wed one of his wives many of the companions remained for a long time and they did not leave although the wedding was over. This caused hurt to the Prophet (saw). We can put ourselves in the shoes of the Prophet (saw) and imagine how we would feel if someone came to our house very early before the meal was made and then left very late. It disrupts the lives of the other people who are not able to get on with their own work. We should take others feelings into consideration and not cause them emotional harm. These are the manners taught to us by Allah (swt).
