Allah says (which means): “And verily, you (O Muhammad) is really a great virtuous character.” (Al-Qalam: 4). Allah the Exalted also affirmed (which means): “Verily Allah has been there yourself it’s a good role model for you, (ie) for people who expect (grace) of God and the (coming of) the Day of Resurrection, and Allah much. ” (Al-Ahzab: 21)
It is only fitting for every Muslim to learn of his life from every side of his life (overall), which is how he is civilized in the presence of his Lord, his family, his friend and against non-Muslims.
One way to learn it all is often sitting (mix) with those who restrain themselves. For someone that would be affected by a friend in his seat. The Prophet said (which means): “A person’s religious views of his close friends. So take a look at who his closest friends.” (Tirmidhi)
Then shall also for every Muslim to keep away from the ugly depraved. Hopefully then we include the servants of God who adorn ourselves with good morals.
