Are you among the best Muslims, as mentioned by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ?

Everyone wants to be among the best, be a manager in a company, a student in the class, a writer, a preacher, a blogger or an anchor. There is nothing wrong with striving to be the best, for such inner drives make people prosper, rise and do wonders in their field.

When being best in all other worldly pursuits is given so much attention, why do we generally ignore religion, so as to be guided Divinely to be a better Muslim and a human being. This is only because of the fact that we, more often than not, do not follow Qur'an and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ which provide us with the conditions and qualities of character that make us better Muslims. 

We have shared a number of qualities of Muslims, both from Qur'an and Sunnah, in many of our previous posts. Even at this time, we are sharing a list of traits of Muslims whom Allah has promised success based on initial verses of Surah 23. Al-Muminun الۡمُؤۡمِنُوۡنَۙ (The Believers).

And now continuing with our effort to publish qualities, attributes and traits as guideline to be better Muslims, we share today selected hadiths attributed to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Here in the post, we are only giving the reference. While some of these have already been shared/published with explanation shown with highlighted text, we will in due course share remaining hadiths as well. We may even add more too so as to educate believers how can we be better Muslims by following and acting on these Hadiths:

The Best of the Muslims is he who:

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.

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

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.

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.
