Title:Muslim Manners Category:General Source:Dr. Fatima al Ali,2018   Description:The value of man is by deeds and right manners
The value of a human being is neither his/her color nor looks, but deeds and right manners. The Prophet (peace be upon him) says ‘What is more noteworthy in God’s view is neither your appearance nor your wealth; it is your hearts and deeds that God observes ’. In general, good manners means good dealing with members of society; as all Abrahamic religions call for good morals as per the books sent down to messengers as to educate people on noble manners. God says, ‘HE it is Who has raised among the unlettered people a Messenger from among themselves who recites unto them HIS Signs, and purifies them, and teaches them the Book and Wisdom ’.  Moreover, Islam not only urges for good morals, but also considers them as act of worship warrant abundant reward and more access to God. The Prophet (PBHU) says, ‘The most beloved and closest to me among you on the Day of Judgment, are those who are well-mannered ’. Likewise, the core aim of prescription of worships is to stick to moral values. God says, ‘surely prayer keeps (one) away from indecency and evil’. As regards charity, God says ‘Of their goods, take alms, that so you might purify and sanctify them ’. Furthermore, for Hajj, God says, ‘there is (to be) no lewdness nor abuse nor angry conversation on the pilgrimage’ etc . In fact, examples of good manners commanded to us in Islam are being good to parents, being good to neighbors, showing respect to seniors, assuming good faith, uttering good words, exchanging greeting, and maintaining bond with kith and kin even if they are not Muslims . To conclude with, morals are fundamental to community development. Notably as they contribute to an individual building essential to respective goodness and progress .
