Good conduct and noble character

Good Character
                               islam.muslimfreebooks@gmail.com

       Good conduct and noble character are the most valuable and precious assets of any human society. They are the treasures of pride for any individual. Courtesy is a virtue, because a refined mind cultivates good habits, performs good deeds, and avoids all that is bad and corrupt.
                    
  PROPHET MOHAMMED’S (Sallallahu-A’layhi-Wasallam’s) CHARACTER

1) Allah, the Exalted, says:"And verily, you (O Muhammad (PBUH)) are on an exalted (standard of) character." (Quran Surah 68/4)

2)
 The Holy Quraan states: "Surely there is for you the best example in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam), for whoever seeks the pleasure of Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah often (much)." (Surah Al-Ahzaab 33/21)

3) Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) was thebest of all the people in behavior.
[Al-Bukhari volume 8/221 book 73 and Muslim]

4) Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I never felt any piece of velvet or silk softer than the palm of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH), nor did I smell any fragrance more pleasant than the smell of Messenger of Allah (PBUH). I served him for ten years, and he never said 'Uff' (an expression of disgust) to me. He never said 'why did you do that?' for something I had done, nor did he ever say 'why did you not do such and such' for something I had not done.
[Al-Bukhari volume
 8/64 book 73 and Muslim Chapter 13-Book 030 #5720].

              WHICH TYPE OF CONDUCT IS DESIRED FROM HUMAN BEINGS

1) "The Jannah is prepared for those who spend during ease and hardship, who repress anger,and who pardon the people." (3/133-134)
2) Abdullah bin 'Amr mentioned Allah's Apostle saying that he was neither a Fahish nor a Mutafahish. Abdullah bin 'Amr added, Allah's Apostle said, 'The best among you are those who have the best manners and character.' (Bukhari 8/56 Book 73)
3) Narrated Jarir bin 'Abdullah: The Prophet said, "He who is not merciful to others, will not be treated mercifully. (Bukhari 8/42 Book 73)
4) Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah's Apostle said, "Do not hate one another, and do not be jealous of one another, and do not desert each other, and O, Allah's worshipers! Be brothers. Lo! It is not permissible for any Muslim to desert (not talk to) his brother (Muslim) for more than three days." (Bukhari 8/73 Book 73)
5) Narrated 'Aisha: The Prophet said "Gabriel continued to recommend me about treating theneighbors kindly and politely so much so that I thought he would order me to make them as my heirs. (Bukhari 8/43 Book 73)
6) Nawwas bin Sam'an (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I asked Messenger of Allah (PBUH) about virtue and sin, and he said, "Virtue is noble behavior, and sin is that which creates doubt and you do not like people to know about it."[Muslim Bk 032 #6195].

Always be Sincere

Always be sincere (Ikhlaas)
Importance of Sincerity


     Islam teaches sincerity and persuades to live with it. Acceptance of deeds depends on sincerity (Ikhlaas)Ikhlaas means man’s deeds and actions to be done for the sake of Allah alone and not to show to the people. Moreover, sincere words and actions are felt in heart and triggers confidence of everyone around you. We must be always sincere in all matters, whether it is religious duty, or family matters, public/ business dealings, office works etc. With regard to family one has to be natural and sincere with spouse and other family members and relatives.

      One must be sincere in prayer with pure and sincere devotion. Make sincere repentance (tawba), by making sincere promise not to repeat the same sin again. In the given below Quranic verses translations you would know how Al-Mighty Allah Commands the prophet (Sallallaho A’laihi Wa Sallam) and people to be sincere.    

1) Worship Allah and associate nothing with Him, and to parents do good, and to relatives, orphans, the needy, the near neighbor, the neighbor farther away, the companion at your side, the traveler, and those whom your right hands possess. Indeed, Allah does not like those who are self-deluding and boastful (arrogant and proud)(Quran Surah An-Nisa4/36)

2) Say, [O Muhammad], "Indeed, I have been commanded to worship Allah, [being] sincere to Him in religion. (Surah Az-Zumar 39/11)

3) Indeed, We have sent down to you the Book, [O Muhammad], in truth. So worship Allah, [being] sincere to Him in religion (Surah Az-Zumar 39/2)

4) Say, "Allah [alone] do I worship, sincere to Him in my religion (Surah Az-Zumar 39/14)

5) He is the Ever-Living; there is no deity except Him, so call upon Him, [being] sincere to Him in religion. [All] praise is [due] to Allah, Lord of the worlds (Surah Ghafir 40/65)

6) O you who have believed, repent to Allah with sincere repentance. Perhaps your Lord will remove from you your misdeeds and admit you into gardens beneath which rivers flow [on] the Day when Allah will not disgrace the Prophet and those who believed with him. (Surah Al-Tahreem 66/8)

7) Say, "Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds (Surah Al-Anaam 6/162)

8) And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger – those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor, of the prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. And excellent are those as companions (Surah An-Nisa 4/69)

9) And perform properly (and complete) the Hajj and Umrah for Allah.
 ( Al-Baqarah 2/196)

Rights of Parents

Rights of Parents   
only 4 pages taken from book
  27pages book can be downloaded from any of the 3 links 
 (Written by: Mirza Ehteshamuddin Ahmed)


The Rights of Parents


         A true believer must love Allah most, then more than his own self he should love Prophet Mohmammed (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him-pbh). Later on, the  aspect or phase of family or human rights stage comes.  Each member of the family has rights and obligations. The preferential sequence of the family rights is mother, father, children,   wife, maternal aunt etc.

 

         Parents  give us innumerable (countless) favors. They provide protection, food and clothing to the newly born. The mother sacrifices her comforts and sleep to provide comfort to her children. The father works hard to provide for their physical, educational and psychological (and spiritual) needs.
            It is a matter of common courtesy that if a person does you some favor you feel obliged to him. Verbally you say 'thank you' to him. You try to repay and compensate him for his gifts and favors. You feel a sense of
gratitude towards him.
         With regard to rights of parents and children I found in some families there are violations (disobedience) to islamic teachings, either due to lack of knowledge or according to adopted customs prevailing in their places.
          The aim of this book is to help a common man, children in particular understand their parents rights according the islamic teachings guided by the noble Qur'an and sayings of holy Prophet Mohammed (Allah's peace and blessings be upon him).
          As parents grow old their energies also decline. So it is the duty of children to help their parents in any household work in which they can help. Treating one's parents with honour also requires sustaining (supporting) them with the living costs when they are needy.
Guidance to Children from Quran and Sunnah

Allah said, 'Yes, won't you be pleased that I will keep good relations with the one who will keep good relations with you, and I will sever the relation with the one who will sever the relations with you.' It said, 'Yes, O my Lord.' Allah said, 'Then that is for you ' " Allah's Apostle added. "Read (in the Qur'an) if you wish, the Statement of Allah: 'Would you then, if you were given the authority, do mischief in the land and sever your ties of kinship?' (47.22)   (Bukhari 8/16)
