The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) Muhammad Reminds Us About Ethic

Ethics is the core of Islamic teachings. The Prophet (ﷺ) was destined to perfect the morality of mankind. 

 

In many hadiths, The Prophet Muhammad gave a number of ethical guidance in daily life, such as:    

إذا كنتم ثلاثة فلا يتناجى اثنان دون صاحبهما؛ فإنّ ذلك يحزنه

 

“If you are three, then let not two of you whisper without including a third person, because it will make him sad” (HR. Ibn Majah).

إِنَّ مِنْ إِجْلَالِ اللهِ إِكْرَامَ ذِي الشَّيْبَةِ الْمُسْلِمِ وَحَامِلِ الْقُرْآنِ غَيْرَ الْغَالِي فِيْهِ وَالْجَافِي عَنْهُ وَإِكْرَامَ ذِي السُّلْطَانِ الْمُقْسِطِ

 

“Indeed, including glorifying Allah is honoring a gray Muslim, carrying the Qur’an that does not exaggerate in it (by exceeding the limits) and not staying away (from practicing) the Qur’an, and glorifying a just ruler.” (HR. Abu Daud).

إِيَّاكُمْ وَالْجُلُوسَ بِالطُّرُقَاتِ. قَالُوا: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ، مَا لَنَا مِنْ مَجَالِسِنَا بُدٌّ نَتَحَدَّثُ فِيهَا فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: إِذَا أَبَيْتُمْ إِلَّا الْمَجَالِسَ فَأَعْطُوا الطَّرِيقَ حَقَّهُ» قَالُوا: وَمَا حَقُّ الطَّرِيقِ؟ قَالَ: غَضُّ الْبَصَرِ، وَكَفُّ الْأَذَى، وَرَدُّ السَّلَامِ، وَالْأَمْرُ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ، وَالنَّهْيُ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ 

“Stay away from sitting on the side of the road. The Companions said: “We cannot leave it, because it is our place to have a conversation”. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ)  said: “If you are reluctant to leave the road, then give it the right of way.” Friend asked: “What is the right of way?” He replied: “Subdue the view, eliminate distractions, answer greetings, command goodness and prevent evil.” (HR. Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

 

تطعم الطّعام، وتقرأ السّلام على من عرفت ومن لم تعرف 

 

“You feed, spread greetings both to people you know and to people you do not know”  (HR. Al-Bukhari)

عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ رَحِمَ اللَّهُ رَجُلًا سَمْحًا إِذَا بَاعَ وَإِذَا اشْتَرَى وَإِذَا اقْتَضَى

From Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah RA that the Messenger of Allaah ‘alaihi wasallam said: “Allah redmati people who facilitate when selling and when buying and also people who ask for his rights’ ‘. (HR. Al-Bukhari)
