Ibn Umar, may Allah be pleased with them, narrated that the Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said:

A man should not ask another man to get up from his place in order to take his seat. But you should make room for each other and make space; Allah will make space for you.” 

A Muslim should consider the etiquettes of assemblies and spread them among his brothers wherever he is. These high morals are based on five basic rules, and other sub-rules follow them.

The Hadiths that illustrate this topic are explanations of the saying of the almighty (which means) : { O you who have believed, when you are told, "Space yourselves" in assemblies, then make space; Allah will make space for you. And when you are told, "Arise," then arise; Allah will raise those who have believed among you and those who were given knowledge, by degrees. And Allah is Acquainted with what you do.}  Quran (58:11).

This verse was revealed concerning the assemblies of remembering Allah, as Qatada and others say; if they saw one of them coming, they would refrain from letting others sit close to the Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, Allah ordered them to let a space for each other.

The meaning; O you who truly believe in Allah, If you are told to make spaces in your assemblies so that they accommodate a large number of your brothers, then obey and respond, because this will lead you to reach the mercy of your Lord, the vastness of your homes in Paradise, and in everything you love.
