Imam attached great significance to respect for people's rights.

A memoirs by Ayatollah Qarhi

During the period when Imam used to live in the Holy city of Najaf, he would often go to the Holy city of Kerbala.  There he would stay in a small house.
 
Whilst in Kerbala, he would say his Magrib and Isha prayers in the mosque of Ayatollah Bouroujardi and he would lead the Zohr and Asr congregational prayers at his house.  The courtyard of his house was very small and the carpet was insufficient. 

However because people had a great affinity for Imam, a large number of them would come for prayers laying out their prayer mats.  When Imam would enter, he was very careful not to step on people's shoes and cloaks.  Through his own actions, he taught how to respect the rights of people.
