“The best of people are those with the most excellent character.” [Tabarāni, Sahīh]
Commentary: Indeed, few things have been as emphasised by the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) as having good conduct, excellent manners, displaying bravery and honour in fact all possible characteristics which embellish the external so as to make it a worthy carrier of the weighty and priceless message contained within, i.e. the Deen of Islam.
How many times did we see a people loved for their good character and yet how many Muslims today ruin their relations with all and sundry with their distinct lack of adab?
