As-Salaam alaikum,
We have learnt of it in the Hadith where the Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, was said to have asked us not to make our houses into graveyards... 'La Taj'-aluu buyutukum maqaabir...Do not make your houses into graveyards'...(Muslim vol. 1 page 265.
This means that one should make it a habit of performing nafl (voluntary) Salaah at home. Also, one should feed the guests that come/visit his home. Guests should not leave one's home without partaking of anything in the manner that one returns from the graveyard. You should at least offer them something to eat or drink.
Best Wishes.
