iMusliMariam posted a topic in All-in-one ForumADVICE: The Best Of The Believers Are Those With The Best Personality 'Abdullah ibn 'Amr, may Allah be pleased with him, heard the Messenger of Allah SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam say: "Shall I tell you who is dearest to me and nearest to me on the Day of Judgment?" He repeated this twice or thrice, and they replied: "yes, tell us, o' Messenger of Allah." And the Prophet SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam replied: "the best of character amongst you." (Narrated by Ahmad) 'Aishah, May Allah be pleased with her, narrated that she heard the Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) say: "The one who has the most perfect faith (among the believers) is one with the highest character and is kindest to his/her family." (Narrated by Tirmidhi) To (God) Allah, the best of all Muslims are those who, not only try their best in performing all acts of worship for the sake of Allah but also, maintain the best (manners) character. Abu Hurairah, May Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: "you cannot encompass the people with your money, but you can encompass them with a friendly face and high character." (Narrated by Bazzar) As long as I'm a Muslim while these are disbelievers I know that to God -than them I will always be better Even if you have this, have that, or did this and did that As long as you're rude and insecure, while I'm kind and nice, To God and His Angels, than you I know I am better Abi Sa'id Al-Khudry, May Allah be pleased with him,has quoted a saying by the Prophet (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) as follows: "Two attributes cannot be found in a man of faith: miserliness and a a bad character."(Narrated by Bukhari) A man or woman, girl or boy, whose character is bad and seldom likes to share even the simplest things he/she has so much of, may not be a true Muslim until he/she, for Allah's sake, develops good Islamic character. Abu Ad-Darraa, May Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: "There is nothing of greater weight in the scales of the believer (Muslim) on the Day of Judgment than high character. God (Allah) hates the profligate and the insolent/bad mannered." (Narrated by Tirmidhi) Some examples of good character: ~ Being friendly and approachable ~ Having a sincere smile on one's face ~ Shaking hands when first meeting a fellow Muslim ~ Frequently saying salaam to Muslims and always responding to their salaams ~ Asking questions in a nice way and always thanking someone for their favors ~ Always willing to help out in only what is good and give honest advice ~ Always willing to share what can be shared ~ Always fair and just, making sure that every one of your friends have what they need/deserve ~ Apologizing to those whom you have intentionally or unintentionally wronged or at least praying for them ~ Enjoining good deeds and forbidding evil deeds, and practicing what you yourself preach ~ Being respectful and obedient, as much as possible, to your parents. etc. God (Allah) said in the Glorious Qur'an: "Bad statements are for bad people (or bad women for bad men) and bad people for bad statements (or bad men for bad women). Good statements are for good people (or good women for good men) and good people for good statements (or good men for good women), such (good people) are innocent of (each and every) bad statement which they say, for them is Forgiveness, and Rizqun Karim (i.e.Paradise)." (Surat An-Noor/The Light) Allah knows best. People of good morals/good character cannot get along with people of bad character Bad Character: * Telling someone to do something bad to someone, * Encouraging evil deeds, * Not willing to share, * Taking something from someone without its owner's permission, * Spying or being nosy about that which does not concern you (e.g. reading someone's diary* or listening to a conversation that you have no right to interfere), * Laughing at someone who makes a mistake or name-calling someone in a childish immature way etc. Wasalaam
