An unknown Companion witnessed the best of angels, Jibreel (as), dressed in white, speaking to the Prophet ﷺ about an essential principle in Islam: the importance of neighbors, regardless of what faith they followed. “Be good to your neighbor” is a common rule of thumb cited by many traditions, but in Islam, it was emphasized to such an extent that he ﷺ thought they may be assigned inheritance next.
