Building partitions between neighbors:
Two people that are living in the same courtyard are required to build a wall in middle of the courtyard in order to separate it into two sections and prevent each other from seeing the actions and dealings of the other within the courtyard. [The neighbors are able to force each other to build a partition in the courtyard.]
Building using charity money: If they are poor and cannot afford to build a wall then if they are able to receive charity moneys in order to build a light partition between them, they are to do so.
If a partition is not built: If they are not able to build a partition, the neighbors must beware as much as possible not to look at what the other person is doing in his property.
