To show good behavior is a sign of intellectual maturity and psychological serenity which Islam deems essential and as significant as is worship itself. It, therefore, instructs its followers to adopt, when dealing with others, an approach of righteousness enough to spare them harm. Islam considers a smiling face towards people to be a great category of alms-giving. It also orders the softened speech, the good way to argue and forgive offenders be of the lofty virtues. It urges Muslims to exchange gifts with others, give charity and show good discipline even to Non-Muslims. It, furthermore, motivates its followers to be of good company to them, guide them, visit them when sick and congratulate them on happy occasions. A Muslim is ordained to express gratitude to any who has done him a favor . For the Messenger of God, peace be upon him, said: “He who has done you a favor is to be rewarded.” Islam supports the urge to suppress abuse by outstretching gratefulness and confront injustices with justice and patience. A wife is given by Islam the right to be dealt with justly as well as children with mercy and compassion. Allah, the Almighty, says: ".......And treat them fairly......" Islam, thus, views those of benefit to people as the most highly beloved ones in the sight of Allah; whereas the most preferable acts are those which render others pleased and cheerful. In general, Islam recommends kindness be on top of all issues.
On the authority of Abu Najeeh al-’Irbaad ibn Saariyah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said, "The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) gave us a sermon by which our hearts were filled with fear and tears came to our eyes. So we said, 'O Messenger of Allah! It is as though this is a farewell sermon, so counsel us.' He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, 'I counsel you to have taqwa (fear) of Allah, and to listen and obey [your leader], even if a slave were to become your ameer. Verily he among you who lives long will see great controversy, so you must keep to my Sunnah and to the Sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs, those who guide to the right way. Cling to it stubbornly [literally: with your molar teeth]. Beware of newly invented matters [in the religion], for verily every bidah (heresy) is misguidance.'" (Abu Dawud) It was related by at-Tirmidhi, who said that it was a good and sound hadeeth.
On the authority of an-Nawas ibn Sam’an (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "Righteousness is in good character, and wrongdoing is that which wavers in your soul, and which you dislike people finding out about." (Muslim) And on the authority of Wabisah ibn Ma’bad (may Allah be pleased with him) who said, "I came to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, 'You have come to ask about righteousness.' I said, 'Yes.' He (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, 'Consult your heart. Righteousness is that about which the soul feels at ease and the heart feels tranquil. And wrongdoing is that which wavers in the soul and causes uneasiness in the breast, even though people have repeatedly given their legal opinion [in its favor].'" A good hadeeth transmitted from the musnads of the two imams, Ahmed bin Hambal and Al- Darimi, with a good chain of authorities.
