- Another tradition has it: “They asked, what is the best thing given to a man?” He PBUH replied: “Best moral character.” -(Tirmizi)
- The Prophet was asked: “Which Muslim has the perfect faith?” He PBUH answered: “He who has the best moral character.” – (Tibrani)
- Abdullah bin’ Amar has reported: “I have heard the Prophet PBUH as saying: ‘Should I not tell you who amongst you is the most likeable person to me and who will be the nearest to me on the Day of the Judgment? He repeated this question twice or thrice. The people requested him to tell them about such a person. He pbuh said ‘He who amongst you has the best moral character.“ – (Ahmed)
- In another hadith, he has said: “On the Day of the Judgement there will be nothing weightier in the balance of a momin than the goodness of character. Allah dislikes an obscene and a rude talker and the bearer of a good moral character reaches to the level of the observer of the prayer and fasting, on account of his character.” – (Imam Ahmed)
- Hazrat Anas has reported: “Allah’s Messenger has said: ‘A slave achieves, by means of the goodness of his character, great position and high honour in the Hereafter, though he may be weak in matters of worship; but on account of his wickedness of character he is thrown in the lowest recesses of the Hell.” – (Tibrani).
- Hazrat Ayesha narrates: “I have heard the Prophet as saying: ‘Momin, by goodness of his character, achieves the high position of the one who observes fast and offers prayers.” – (Abu Dawood).
- Abu Zar has narrated: “Successful is the man who had purified his heart for faith, kept his heart on the right lines, his tongue was truthful, his self was content, and his nature was on the right path.” -(Ibn Haban)
The holy Prophet used to love his companions. He did not hate them. He respected every respectable man from any other nation, and he used to appoint him as a responsible officer over them. He used to be in search of his companions and gave them their shares. No companion thought that any other person was more respectable in the Prophet’s eye than the companion himself.
The Messenger of Allah liked fragrance and used perfumes many times.
