يٰأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَدْخُلُواْ بُيُوتاً غَيْرَ بُيُوتِكُمْ حَتَّىٰ تَسْتَأْنِسُواْ وَتُسَلِّمُواْ عَلَىٰ أَهْلِهَا ذٰلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ
٢٧
-An-Nûr ( النور )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

O you who believe, do not enter houses other than your houses until you have [first] asked permission and greeted their occupants. So a person must say, ‘Peace be upon you, may I enter?’, as is stated in one hadīth. That is better for you, than entering without permission, that perhaps you might remember (tadhakkarūna: the second tā’ [of tatadhakkarūna] has been assimilated with the dhāl) the superiority of such [conduct] and so follow it.
