Prefering right side is Sunnah


1. Aishah (RadiyAllahu Anha) reported: Messenger of Allah (Sallellahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) liked to use his right hand in all matters: in combing his hair and wearing his shoes. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
2. Aishah (R.Ah.) reported: Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.S.) was used to using his right hand for performing Wudu’ and for eating his food whereas he was used to using his left hand in his toilet and for other similar purposes.
3. Abu Hurairah (R.A.) reported: Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.S.) said: “When any of you puts on his shoes, he should put on the right one first; and when he takes them off, he should begin with the left. Let the right shoe be the first to be put on and the last to be taken off.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

4. Hafsah (R.Ah.) reported: Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.S.) used to use his right hand for eating, drinking and wearing his clothes and used to use his left hand for other purposes. [Abu Dawud]
