Admirable Characteristics of Muslims

Admirable Characteristics of Muslims. The Islamic Shari’ah is a complete way of life that has placed great importance on shaping the personal life of the Muslim in all respects. One of these aspects is virtue, etiquette, and character. Islam, meanwhile, has placed great importance on it. That is why it has established a relationship between belief and morality, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,  “The perfect believer among the believers is the one who has the best character among them.” [Ahmad, Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi]

So good character is the proof and reflection of faith. Faith is not reflected without character, but the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) informed us that one of the great purposes of sending him is to fulfill the good aspects of character. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said “I have only been sent to fulfill the good aspects of character.” Narrated by Imam Ahmad and Imam Bukhari in Adabul Mufrad. That is why Allaah praised His Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) through his good and beautiful character. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning)  “Surely you have a great character.” [Surah Al-Kalam: 4]  

Where is this character in the consciousness of the current materialist doctrine and the imaginary thinking of humanist people?

Where the character aspect has been completely ignored, it is based only on opportunistic principles and materialist interests. Although it is through oppression or torture on others. The wealth of all other nations is acquired through plunder and loss of human dignity.

Islam has painted a wonderful picture of how a Muslim should treat Allah, the Prophet, other people, and even himself in his conduct. Whenever a Muslim follows the Islamic character in reality and in his dealings, he comes very close to the desired perfection, which helps him to attain more nearness to Allah and to ascend the ladder of higher status. On the other hand, whenever a Muslim deviates from the character and etiquette of Islam, he in fact deviates from the real vitality of Islam, the basis of rules and regulations. He becomes like a mechanical man who has no feelings and no soul.

Worship in Islam is strictly connected with character. Any worship that does not reflect a good character has no value. In the case of performing prayers before Allah, it is seen that prayers protect a person from obscene acts, and have an effect on self-purification and improvement of the soul. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning)  “Surely prayer forbids indecency and indecency.” [Surah Al-Ankabut: 45]

Similarly fasting leads to taqwa. And taqwa is one of the great virtues, for example, Allaah says ,  “O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become righteous. ” [Surat al-Baqara: 183]

  • Fasting: In the same way, it reflects etiquette, calmness, serenity, forgiveness, aversion to fools, and so on. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “If it is the day of fasting for any of you, let him not speak obscenely, let him not shout and show restlessness. If someone insults him or fights with him, let him say I am fasting. Bukhari and Muslim
  • Zakat: Similarly, it purifies the heart, purifies the soul, and frees it from the disease of stinginess, greed, and arrogance. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Take alms out of their wealth, by which you will purify and purify them.” [Surah Tawbah verse 103]
  • Hajjah The Hajj is self-purification and purification of the soul. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Whoever makes Hajj obligatory on himself during these months, let him not engage in obscenity, wickedness, and quarreling during Hajj.” [Surah Al-Baqarah: 197]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,  “Whoever performs Hajj without speaking obscene words and committing sins, he has returned from his sins as innocent as the day his mother gave birth to him.” [Bukhari and Muslim]

Fundamentals of Islamic character

1) Truthfulness:

One of the Islamic characters that Allaah and His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) have instructed us on is the character of truthfulness. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “O you who believe! Fear Allaah and be with those who are truthful.” [Surah At-Tawbah: 119]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,  “Be honest, for truthfulness leads to virtue and virtue leads to Paradise. [Muslim]

2) Deposit:

Muslims have been instructed to adopt all those Islamic characters, one of which is to collect the deposits from their owners. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):  Indeed, Allah commands you to return trusts to their rightful owners;1 and when you judge between people, judge with fairness. What a noble commandment from Allah to you! Surely Allah is All-Hearing, All-Seeing.  [Surah An-Nisa ‘: 58]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) received the title of Al-Amin from his people, who used to keep their wealth with him. When the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his followers were severely persecuted by the polytheists, when Allaah allowed him to migrate from Makkah to Madinah, he did not migrate without making arrangements to return the deposit to his heirs. But those who kept the deposit were all disbelievers. But Islam has instructed to return the deposit to its owners even though its owners are disbelievers.

3) Fulfilling the promise:

One of the great Islamic characters is to fulfill promises. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And fulfill the promise, for the promise will be questioned.”  [Surah Isra: 34]

And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) considered breaking the promise to be one of the characteristics of a hypocrite.

4) Kindness:

Another characteristic of the Islamic character is that a Muslim will treat his fellow Muslims with humility. Whether he is rich or poor. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And lower your side for the believers.”  [Surah Al-Hijr: 6]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,  “Allaah has revealed to me, ‘Be humble so that one does not become arrogant towards the other. Don’t cross the line on one another. ”  [Muslim.]

5) Benefit to parents:

Being kind to one’s parents is one of the virtues. And this is because their right is great, that rightful place is after the right of God. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):  “And worship Allaah, and do not associate anything with Him, and be kind to your parents.” [Surah An-Nisa: 35]

Allaah has commanded their obedience, kindness and humility towards them and supplication for them. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):  “And lower the wing of humility for them both, and say: O my Lord! Have mercy on them as they have nurtured me in my childhood. ” [Surah Al-Isra: 24]

A man came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and asked,  ‘O Messenger of Allaah! Who is the person most deserving of my good behavior? He said, ‘Your mother.’ Then he asked, “Then who?” He replied, ‘Your mother.’ Then he asked who after that? He replied, ‘Your mother.’ Then he asked who after that? He replied, ‘Your father.’ [Bukhari and Muslim]

This kindness and kindness to the parents is not a matter of giving extra or fullness, but it is an obligatory law based on the consensus of all people.

6) Maintaining kinship:

Maintaining kinship is one of the Islamic characteristics. And they are close relatives like uncle, mama, uncle, aunt, brother, sister etc.

It is obligatory to maintain kinship, and to sever it is to deprive oneself of Paradise and is a cause of curse. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):  “If you had the power, would you cause mischief on earth and sever the ties of kinship? They are the ones whom God has cursed. He has made them deaf and blinded their sight. ” [Surah Muhammad: 22-23]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ” He who  breaks the ties of kinship will not enter Paradise.” [Bukhari and Muslim]

6) The best treatment of neighbors:

The best treatment of one’s neighbor is one of Islamic character. Neighbors are people who live around your house. He who is closest to you is most deserving of beautiful use and grace. Allah says,  “And do good to parents, relatives, orphans, the needy, the nearest neighbor and the distant neighbor.” [Surah An-Nisa: 36]

In this, Allah has bequeathed to the nearest and farthest neighbor to be benefited. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:  ‘Jibreel had bequeathed to me a neighbor, and I did not think that the neighbor would be inherited. [Bukhari and Muslim]

That is, I thought that the heirs with the heirs would determine a portion of the inheritance. The Prophet, peace be upon him, Abu Jarr. Who noticed and said,  ‘O Abu Jarr! When you cook the vegetables, add more water, and keep the promise of your neighbors. ” [Muslim]

The neighbor has the right to side even if he is a disbeliever or disbeliever in Allah and His Messenger.

6) Guest hospitality:

Another of the Islamic character is the hospitality of the guest. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “Whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day should respect his guest.”  [Bukhari and Muslim]

9) Generally generosity and generosity:

One of the aspects of Islamic character is generosity and generosity. Allaah has praised those who are just, generous and generous. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Those who spend their wealth in the way of Allaah and do not seek to benefit or harm anyone from what they have spent, for them is a reward from their Lord. They have nothing to fear and they will not worry. ”  [Surah Al-Baqarah: 262]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘Whoever has an  extra vehicle, let him who does not have one use it. He who has extra food or supplies should help those who do not have supplies. ”  [Muslim]

10) Patience and endurance:

Patience and tolerance is one of the aspects of Islamic character. Similarly, forgiving people, leaving the abuser, accepting or accepting the excuse of the presenter. Allah says: “And that, and forgiveness, and patience, but it is included in the determination.” [Surah Ash-Shura: 43]  

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,  ‘Let them forgive and show generosity. Do you not like Allaah to forgive you?’ The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “Wealth is not diminished by charity. God increases the dignity of the servant by pure forgiveness. Whoever shows humility for Allah, Allah will increase his honor. ” [Muslim] He added, “Please, you will be shown mercy. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. ”  [Ahmad]

11) Compromise and correction among people:

Another of the Islamic character is to reconcile and correct people, it is a great character that leads to the spread of love, friendship and human cooperation. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):  “There is no good in most of their counsels. Except for the person who instructs in charity, good deeds and correction among people. We will soon give him a great reward for doing this for the sake of Allah. ” [Surah An-Nisa: 114]

12) Shame:

Another character of Islamic character is shame. It is a character that calls for perfection and dignified qualities. Prohibits obscenity and arrogance. Shame tends to be on God’s side. As a result, the Muslim is ashamed that Allah will see him involved in wickedness. In the same way he is ashamed of people and of himself. Shame bears witness to faith in the heart. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘Shame is a special part of faith.’ [Bukhari and Muslim] The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) added, “Shame brings nothing but good.” [Bukhari and Muslim]

13) Kindness and mercy:

Another notable character of the Islamic character is kindness or compassion. This character has been snatched from the hearts of many people. As a result, their hearts have become hard like stones or even harder. And the true believer is the one who is merciful, kind, and possesses a deep feeling of radiant grace. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):  “Then he was one of those who believed and exhorted one another to patience and mercy. They are following the southern path. ”  [Surah Al-Balad: 17-18]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,  “The analogy of mutual friendship, mercy and compassion of the believers is like a body. When one of his limbs is sick, the whole body suffers from insomnia and fever. ”  [Muslim]

14) Justice or fairness:

Righteousness is another part of Islamic character. This character creates peace of mind. It leads to the establishment of security in the society and the elimination of various types of crime. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):  “Verily, Allaah commands justice and kindness to the near of kin.” [Surah Al-Nahl: 90]

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “Do justice, for it is nearer to piety.”  [Surah Al-Ma’ida: 8]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,  “Righteous people will sit on the pulpit of light before Allaah. They are the ones who judge in the judgment, in the family, and in whatever assignment they have been given. ”

15. Character holiness:

One of the aspects of Islamic character is character purity. This character preserves the dignity of the people and leads to non-integration into the clan. Allah says: “those who can not afford the wedding, they received the sanctity of character. Until Allah makes him rich by His grace. ” [Surah An-Noor – 33]

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,  “Be responsible for six things for me. Then I will be the guardian of Paradise for you. When one of you speaks, do not lie. He should not betray when the deposit is kept with him. When you make a promise, don’t break it. You lower your gaze. Restrain your hands. Protect your private parts. ” [The hadith is narrated by Tabarani and the hadith is called ‘Hasan’]

There is nothing in these characters of Islam that can be hated. Rather, these are the noble qualities worthy of respect that are supported by every possessor of impeccable nature. If the Muslims had this noble character, people would have come to them from all over and they would have entered the religion of Allah in groups just as the people of that time had entered Islam because of the dealings and character of the early Muslims.
