Manners In Islam

Good manners are an important part of the Islamic faith. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “The best among you are the best in moral character.” (Sahih Al Bukhari)

The Prophet (SAW) is the perfect example of best character and morals for humankind. Allah Almighty says in the Quran in Surah Al-Ahzab (Chapter 33, verse 21):

لَّقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِى رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌۭ لِّمَن كَانَ يَرْجُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلْيَوْمَ ٱلْـَٔاخِرَ وَذَكَرَ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيرًۭا ٢١

Indeed, in the Messenger of Allah, you have an excellent example for whoever has hope in Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah often.

The Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) teach us to:

  • Show kindness to others.
  • Be forgiving.
  • Treat others with respect.
  • Don’t lie, no matter how difficult telling the truth is.
  • Do not backbite or gossip about others.
