Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan was asked:
Virtuous Shaikh: Is an analogy made between fixing a beam [on a wall]* and between a neighbor parking [his] car in front of the door of his neighbor?
“No, it is not allowed to park the car in front of the neighbor’s house. This is because it will block his path. However, he should park the car in the courtyard of a store which does not need the parking space. Not in front of the door [of his neighbor]. There is no harm [in parking in the courtyard of a store that does not need the parking space]. If he [the owner] needs the courtyard, then he is more deserving of it because it is his courtyard. Yes”.
* Translator’s Note:
The questioner is referring to the following Hadith:
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ : لاَ يَمْنَعْ أَحَدُكُمْ جَارَهُ أَنْ يَغْرِزَ خَشَبَةً فِي جِدَارِهِ
Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
None among you should prevent his neighbor from fixing a beam in his wall [Muslim no. 1609]
