Good Character

Assalamu Alaikom.

Abu Dharr Jundub ibn Junaadah and Abu Abdur Rahman Mu'aadh ibn Jabal (May Allah be pleased with them narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "Fear Allah wherever you may be, trail a bad deed with a good deed and it will wipe it out, and treat the people with good character." Related by Tirmidhee.

My take:
A few nice pieces of advice in this hadith. First, it is important to be conscious of Allah in all facets of daily actions. Secondly, we are taught a method of clearing ourselves of bad deeds by performing good deeds/actions after committing bad/doubtful actions. Thirdly, we are reminded of the importance of treating people with good character.

May Allah make it easy to implement this hadith in our lives. Ameen.

Be safe and take care.
