Obligations of the Guest toward the Host

Since we are using the Host/Guest analogy here, please, allow me to clue you in on proper etiquette in that regard. First of all, the host has an obligation to treat you kindly, to provide what he/she promised and to send you away feeling that it was a good experience. The Guest, however, also has some obligations to their Host. This includes behaving in a way that does not offend the Host; not bringing uninvited guests; being gracious and grateful for the invitation and for the Host's labors on your behalf; bringing something to the table (and I don't mean whining and complaining), and last but most important, NEVER OVERSTAY YOUR WELCOME. I am amazed at the hypocrisy of Muslims. They can behave like pigs, and the rest of us have to smile and take it. Well, I think that if things are so bad for you in Denmark, or America, or wherever you are, than you should by all means go home. If your country is so great why aren't you living there in the first place? Hasn't Allah blessed you all.
