Ten of the Best Manners


From Al-Harmaas ibn Habeeb, who narrarated from his father, who narrarated from his grandfather, that he heard ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anhaa) saying:

“The best manners are ten:

 

  • Truthful speech
  • Sincerity and courage in obedience to Allah
  • Giving the one who asks
  • Recompensing the worker [employee]
  • Keeping the ties of kinship
  • Giving back [being trustworthy] with that which you are entrusted upon
  • Honesty and good treatment of the neighbor
  • Honesty and good treatment of the spouse
  • Honouring the guests

and the top of all, the [best manners] is

– hayaa [shyness & modesty].”
