Manners of the Prophet

Do not delay helping the weak, the destitute, and women, and walk with them without haughtiness nor pride.

Have mercy on people and animals so that Allah will have mercy on you.

Love for people what you love for yourself.

Be neat in your appearance and clothing.

Be courageous and say the truth, even to your detriment.

Be patient when people hurt you and forgive them so that Allah will forgive you.

Leave indecency, which is all that is ugly and evil of word and deed.

Do not speak with arrogance nor dryness, and do not use indecent language even in jest.

Always speak peacefully, and make your speech sweet.

Sleep early and wake up early for worship and diligent work.

Read the Qur'an with measure and understanding, and listen to it if someone else reads it.

Do not be late at the congregational prayer in the mosque.

Modesty is part of faith.

One who tries to help the widow and the poor is like the warrior in the way of Allah.

The seeking of knowledge is a must for every Muslim man and woman.

Give gifts to one another, for gifts take away malice.

Allah is polite and likes politeness.

The young should say 'Salam' to the old, the passerby to the one sitting, and the small group to the large.

No one has ever eaten better food than what he eats from the work done by his own hands.

Beware of envy, for envy devours good deeds like fire devours dry wood.

He who truly believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak good or keep silen.

When someone has had good done to him and says to the doer 'May Allah reward you', he has done the utmost in praise.

You must speak the truth, for truth leads to virtue and virtue leads to Paradise.

He who does not thank people does not thank Allah.

Removing from the road what causes harm is a charity.

The best amongst you is he who is most kind to his wife.

The deeds most loved by Allah (are those) done regularly, even if they are small.

Allah is pleased with His servant who, when he eats a morsel, praises Him for it, or drinks a sip, praises Him for it.

Prayer in congregation is twenty-seven times better than prayer performed alone.

Powerful is not he who knocks the other down. Indeed powerful is he who controls himself in a fit of anger.

The world is a prison for the believer, and a Paradise for the unbeliever.

Charity does not diminish wealth.
