Our Prophet's
"And you are truly ˹a man˺ of outstanding character"
[Surah Al-Qalam 68:4]
Composed Attitude; An Excellent Attribute
By: Shaikh Zafar Ul Hasan Al Madani

The Prophet who was never abusive - What an honour to be mentioned as a person who never used offensive or harsh words. Rude, harsh and foul language is a sign of bad character. Centuries ago, Torah mentioned this excellent quality of character. It has been instructed in the Qur’an that every Muslim should be very careful in his manner of speech.tongue

"And talk to the people in a beautiful manner"
 Surah al Baqarah.

For example; If a person approaches you for monetary help but you are unable to extend help, then refuse them politely.

The Prophet ﷺ said:

"Whoever believes in Allah and the Last day, should either speak good or remain quiet."

He will not be a short tempered person - The term is Galeez. A quality of good Akhlaq (character) mentioned in the Torah, has also been mentioned in 159th verse of Surah Imran:

"So by mercy from Allah, [O Muhammad], you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from around you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult them in the matter. And when you have decided, then rely upon Allah . Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him]."
Surah Aali Imran: 159

It was a blessing of Allah that our Prophet ﷺ had gentle and composed disposition. A kind hearted person becomes a good leader for his people, while people with harsh nature and hot temper, soon lose goodwill of his followers. Thus, everyone who met our Prophet ﷺ , liked his gentle and kind disposition.

Sabir - Patient and tolerant The Prophet ﷺ did not have a faultfinding or complaining attitude.. He bore with patience whatever hardships befell him. 72 times in Quran, Allah encourages the Prophet ﷺ and his followers to observe patience. Patience (Sabr) is needed while facing calamities, poverty, battles and also when facing the temptation of sins.

These are some of the qualities of prophethood that were mentioned in Torah as well as Quran. Acquiring these qualities is a sign of good Akhlaq (character).
