Seeking permission thrice

Question

Could you cite the Hadith regarding seeking permission thrice before entering times. If no permission is granted the person should return.

 

Answer

Sayyiduna Abu Sa’id Al Khudri (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“…When one of you seeks permission to enter thrice and permission is not granted, he should return..”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6245 and Sahih Muslim, 2153)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
