In the light of the Holy Hadith
A GOOD MUSLIM ACCORDING TO THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD
Prophet Muhammad (saw) says: “A Muslim is he from whose hand and tongue the Muslims are safe.”
(Muslim, Iman, 65; Bukhari, Iman, 4)
Dear Brothers and Sisters!
The most precious treasure of Muslims is their Iman. What completes Iman and worship is only good morals. The Messenger of Allah (saw) states in a hadith, “The most complete of the believers in faith are those with the best character.” To adopt moral virtues and to stay away from ill tempers are essential responsibilities of believers.
Believers take our Prophet Muhammad (saw) “who was only sent to perfect good character” as an example at every stage of their lives. They have mercy on the young people and show respect to the elders. They assure the people around them and observe whatever is entrusted to them. They are truthful and do not resort to lies. They are generous and do not be stingy. They behave towards their mother, father, spouse, children and all creatures animate or inanimate with affection and never resort to violence. When we read the hadiths of our Beloved Prophet (saw) we see that he describes a Muslim as follows: A Muslim is a person who knows that he will not enter Paradise until he has faith and will not have faith until he loves his brothers. Muslim is a person who becomes happy when he does favor and gets sad when he does evil. Muslims do not defame and curse people, do not use rude and bad words and do not be shameless. They stay away from alcohol, the mother of evils, from gambling, which wastes their lives, and from adultery, which invokes the wrath of Allah (swt).
The Messenger of Allah (saw) says in a hadith: “The best of you is the one from whom people expect good deeds, and from whose evil deeds people are safe; the worst of you is the one from whom people expect good deeds but from whose evil deeds people are not safe.” Then, let us exert efforts to be a good Muslim as our Prophet Muhammad (saw) taught us. Let us enlighten our hearts with Iman.
