A person who contemplates the Prophet’s life finds that it includes every aspect of etiquette and good manners that are considered decent by all righteous and noble people.

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was an Example in Good Manners:

Allah the Exalted Says (what means):

«And indeed, you are of a great moral character.»

[Quran: 68:4]

The Prophet’s manners were based on the Quran.1 He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was pleased by whatever the Quran stated was good, and he was angered by whatever the Quran stated was evil and he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was neither harsh nor loud He, sallallaahu ‘alayhiwa sallam, used to forgive and not reply to a transgression with a similar transgression.

Safiyyah (the wife of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “I have seen nobody with better manners than the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.”

Anas (a companion) said, “I served Prophet Mohammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, for nine years. (During these nine years) he never asked as to why I did this or did not do that.

Anas also said, “Prophet Mohammad, sall allaah u ‘alayhi wa sallam, had the best behavior and the best manners of all. One day he sent me somewhere on some business, but I said to myself, “I won’t go now” although I did [eventually] intend to go to where he commanded me. I came to the market (on my way) and passed by some children playing. Suddenly, the Prophet of Allah, sall allaah u ‘alayhi wa sallam, appeared from behind me and held me by the neck. I looked behind and he was smiling. He, sall allaah u ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “O Anas, did you go where I told you to go”. I said, “I will go [now], O Prophet of Allah.
