Assalamualikum Warahmatullah, dear readers, brothers and sisters:


A man once went to the Prophet with a grievance against his relatives. ‘O Messenger of God,’ he said, ‘I have some relatives whom I treat with kindness. Yet they show me no kindness. I treat them well and they treat me badly. I show them forbearance and they treat me with brutality.’ The Prophet (SAW) replied, ‘If you are as you say you are, then it is as if you have smeared their faces with dust. And you will always have God’s help against them so long as you continue to be well behaved towards them.’ (Muslim, on the authority of Abu Hurairah).

The Prophet (SAW) once exclaimed, ‘By God, he is not a believer! By God, he is not a believer! By God, he is not a believer!’ The people asked, ‘O Messenger of God, who?’ ‘The man whose excesses prevent his neighbor from living in peace,’ replied the noble Prophet (SAW) (Al-Bukhari and on the authority of Abu Hurairah).

On the Day of Judgment, what will weigh most heavily in favor of the believer will be his good morals. God abhors those who indulge in shameless talk and use indecent language. (At-Tirmidhi, on the authority of Abu’d Darda).

Save yourself from envy, For envy eats up virtue as fire eats up wood. (Abu Dawud, on the authority of Abu Hurairah).

Prophet of Peace, Allah says, (And you (stand) on an exalted standard of character.) (Al-Qalam 68: 4) (Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the praise of Allah.) (Al-Ahzab 33: 21)

(Say: ‘O people! I am sent unto you all, as the Messenger of Allah, to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth: there is no god but He: it is He that gives both life and death. So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, who believed in Allah and His Words: follow him that (so) you may be guided.) Al-A`raf 7: 158
