Exiting The Home With The Left Foot


At the time of leaving home, which foot should be forwarded first?


The Ulama have recommended entering the home with the right foot and leaving the home with the left foot based on the principle that all respectful and honourable actions should be done with one’s right limbs and all despicable actions should be done with the left limbs.
