Three types of Guests


Someone had once invited me for meals. So I told the host that I also have a guest with me. I then explained that there are three types of guests. Though this does not appear in any kitab, but nevertheless there are three types of guests.

(1) The guest tells the host that he also has a guest and he takes him along with him.  

(2) The guest tells the host to send the food over to him because he has a guest with him. Hence, he does not attend the invitation nor does his guest. Instead, in honour of his guest he gets the food to be sent over to them. 

(3) The person declines the invitation because of his guest.

The status of each guest is different and the host will determine each one’s status. Nobody else will be able to determine the status of the guest.
