Islam encourages treating neighbours very kindly. There is a verse in the Qur’an that sums this all up: “...[Show] kindness unto parents, and unto near kindred, and orphans, and the needy, and unto the neighbour who is related [to you] and the neighbour who is not related, and the fellowtraveler and the wayfarer...” (Qur’an, Surah An-Nisa’, 4: 36)
Also, the Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) said:
“The Angel) Gabriel continued to urge me to treat neighbours kindly and politely, so much that I thought he would order me to make them my heirs.” (Reported by Bukhari and Muslim)
The Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) also said:
“Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should not harm his neighbour, and anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should entertain guests generously, and anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should say what is good or keep quiet.” (Reported by Bukhari and Muslim)
One of the Prophet’s neighbours used to throw trash on him regularly, as he passed by. Once, when she did not do this, he inquired about her, concerned that something was wrong. He found her ill in bed, and when she thought he would display anger or vengeance, she was surprised to find him merciful, despite her rude behaviour towards him. She then embraced Islam because of his kindness. Remember, kindness to neighbours is rewarded by Allah.
 The translation of the meaning of this verse was taken from The Glorious Qur’an, translated (meanings rendered) by Muhammad M.
