Asalam Alaikum Muhammad,
Thank you for trusting About Islam with your very important question.
Allah Almighty sent His Prophet (PBUH) to mankind and taught him to be the best in ethics and manners so that we would find the most complete and best example in him.
Here are a few of what I conclude to be the most important prophetic ethics and manners, which set an example for all mankind.
Follow Prophet Muhammad’s Example
When trying to model our life after the Prophet (PBUH), we should all try to do the following:
Visit our neighbors and check in on their welfare
Give our fellow Muslims their rights: sending salams, visiting them when sick, attending their funeral, responding to their invitations, etc.
It is so paramount to the life of a Muslim that it bears repeating: The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was the role model in ethics and manners.
He reflected the best character of any human being by not only teaching ethics and manners, but also by applying these values in his own life.
Prophet Muhammad’s Character
He had love and mercy for every living thing.
He was in the front lines, leading his men in battles of self-defense.
He was slow to anger and never acted in anger.
He was humble.
He never complained when he experienced poverty, spending months surviving on only dates and water.
He confirmed the importance of science in fighting ignorance.
He never spoke over anyone’s head and used wisdom when conveying the message of Islam.
Thank you and please keep in touch.
