Compiled verses from Qur'an on specific subjects: Muslim (Traits and Character Qualities)

We have been sharing verses from Qur'an and then compiling these as per specific subject for quick reference. Today we share the verses from Qur'an which define a Muslim and his various attributes and traits.

Before we do that, just in a few lines describing a person known as Muslim. All non-Muslims know that a Muslim is a follower of Islam, who are monotheistic and worship one, all-knowing God, or Allah as in Arabic. According to the Quran a Muslim is one who has absolutely surrendered to Allah and his commands and believes in the oneness of God without any associates and helpers. 

Thus, a Muslim not only submits himself wholly to one True God, but also believe in whatever commands have been given in the Qur'an. These Divine Commands pertain to all walks of life of a man, whether personal, inter personal or social with due respect to rights of others, whether Muslims or non-Muslims. He adheres to respecting the five pillars of Islam and lives a life of Siraat e Mustaqeem. 
A Muslim who attains a high degree of perfection by adhering to all tenets of Islam without any hesitation and doubts, is known as a Mu'min.
A word of caution here: A Muslim with a beard and skull cap but not adhering to the tenets of Islam will still be a Muslim for he has taken a shahada. But he has a weak faith in Allah and is overawed by evil. That does not mean that there is a something wrong with Islam for Qur'an and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad are only sources of guidance. Those who adhere to these guidelines are better Muslims as compared to those who skip many obligations and taint the religion in the eyes of non-Muslims. Just like there are good or bad Jews, Christians, Hindus and Buddhists, there are also good and bad Muslims. The verses given below give out the character and traits of a true and God-fearing Muslim. And it is these qualities that are attracting more and more non-Muslims to Islam every day.

We now share, herein under, all those verses (already posted separately) that define a Muslim, his traits and character already posted, to serve as a ready reckoner and reference wherever needed:

May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Note: When we mention God in our posts, we mean One True God, we call Allah in Islam, with no associates. Allah is the Sole Creator of all things, and that Allah is all-powerful and all-knowing. Allah has no offspring, no race, no gender, no body, and is unaffected by the characteristics of human life.
