Begin With the Right Side

right side

It is recommended to start all good activities from the right side. Because the Prophet ﷺ always perform that kind of act.

A hadith from Aisha (may Allah blesses her), she says:

كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يُعْجِبُهُ التَّيَمُّنُ فِي تَنَعُّلِهِ وَتَرَجُّلِهِ وَطُهُورِهِ وَفِي شَأْنِهِ كُلِّهِ‏

The Prophet ﷺ liked to begin on his right side when putting on his shoes, combing his hair, performing his ablution, and in all of his affairs.

[al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Why the Prophet ﷺ does that? Our scholars say, because he loves to show optimism to gain jannah (heaven). And the people of jannah are ashab al yameen (people of right side).

May Allah give us ease to do the sunnah. Aameen
