Akhlak (Good Character) : From Quran and Hadith


And Verily, you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) are on an exalted (standard of) character. (Quran, surah Sad, 68:4)


"The best among you are those who have the best manners and character."
("Inna min akh-yarikum ahsanukum khuluqa")
Reporter: Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Amr (r), Source: Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 8: 56b

A'isha (RA), Prophet Muhammad's (SAW) wife, stated that, ‘The Prophet never used foul language and never entertained people with obscene jokes. He was well behaved when he entered the market places. His habit was not to repel evil with mutual evil. He was forgiving and could grant pardon." (Tirmizi)

Righteousness is good character, and sin is that which wavers in your heart and which you do not want people to know about. - [Sahih Muslim]

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "Whoever has the following four (characteristics) will be a pure hypocrite and whoever has one of the following four characteristics will have one characteristic of hypocrisy unless and until he gives it up. 1. Whenever he is entrusted, he betrays. 2. Whenever he speaks, he tells a lie. 3. Whenever he makes a covenant, he proves treacherous. 4. Whenever he quarrels, he behaves in a very imprudent, evil and insulting manner." (Bukhari Vol. 1 : No. 33)

Messenger of Allah s.a.w said: There are three signs of a hypocrite: when he speaks he speaks lies, when he makes a promise he breaks it, and when he is trusted he betrays his trust. (Sahih Bukhari)

“Whoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment should speak what is good or keep silent.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahih al-Muslim)

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Give due respect and regard to your children and decorate them with the best of manners.” [Abu Daud]

Abu Huraira, r.a., said that the Prophet of Allah, s.a.w, said, "If one has good manners, one may attain the same level of merit as those who spend their nights in prayer."
(Hadith - Bukhari's Book of Manners no. 285, Hakim, and Abu Dawud)

“Whoever has an atoms worth of kibr (pride) in his heart will not enter Paradise.” ~ Prophet Muhammad s.a.w [Sahih Muslim]

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) said: “Be kind, for whenever kindness becomes part of something, it beautifies it. Whenever it is taken from something, it leaves it tarnished." [Imam Bukhari’s Book of Muslim Manners]

Prophet s.a.w said : "Beware of envy because envy consumes (destroys) the virtues just as the fire consumes the firewood." [Abu Dawud]
