By Sh Uthmaan Dhumayriyyah

How great and wonderful is that which Allaah praised our Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam with, when he says that which translates as: “And indeed you are of a great moral character” (Al-Qalam: 4). It is a fantastic indication of the importance of having honourable morals, as well a confirmation of their lofty rank in the great Islamic structure. High morals are the protecting fortress which Muslims seek security in and the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam pointed to its importance when he said: “I was sent to perfect honourable morals.” Truthfulness comes at the top of the list of morals and Allaah considered it to be the foundation for all principles. Truthfulness, besides being an honourable trait, is a necessity in all our public lives and perhaps it is the greatest gate to happiness of individuals as well as their entire communities. For example, when one wishes to make a purchase, they will look for a salesperson who is known for their honesty. read more

Um Khãlid bin Sa`eed said: I came to the Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), my father was with me and I was wearing a yellow shirt. So the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said Sanah Sanah. (Sanah means 'nice' in Ethiopian)

She said: So I set off playing with the seal of prophethood, thus my father prevented me. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said leave her then the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said: 'Ablee wa 'akhliqee, 'Ablee wa 'akhliqee, 'Ablee wa 'akhliqee.("May you live so long that you will wear out many garments.")

I asked a friend of mine by phone what he was doing. He told me he couldn't talk because he was working on "aqua-thermal treatment of ceramics, aluminum, and steel while under a dangerously constrained environment."

I was impressed. Until the following day when I learned that meant he was "washing dishes with hot water under his upset wife's supervision."
