13 Motivational Hadith’s on Character Building

13 Motivational Hadith’s on Character Building

1) The best among you

Rasulullah (SAW) said, “Shall I tell you who are the best among you? The best of you are those who when seen are a means of Allah being brought to mind.” Al-Tirmidhi)

2) Spend righteously and teach wisdom
Rasulullah (SAW) said, “There are two kinds of people worth envying: someone whom Allah has made rich and who spends his money righteously, and someone whom Allah has given wisdom and who acts according to it and teaches it to others.” (Al-Bukhari)

3) Thank people
Rasulullah (SAW) said, “He who does not thank people does not thank Allah.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

4) Teaching by example
Abu Qatada (RA) said: “We were sitting in the Masjid when Rasulullah (SAW) came upon us carrying his great granddaughter. She was a child and he was carrying her on his shoulder. The Prophet (SAW) led the people in prayer while she was on his shoulder. When he bowed in prayer, he put her down and picked her up when he got up. He kept on doing this until he finished his prayer.”  (Sunan of Abu Dawud)
Comment on the hadith: “The purpose behind the action of Rasulullah (SAW) carrying his great granddaughter in the prayer was to set an example for those who considered having daughters and carrying them around as something bad or shameful. Rasulullah (SAW) acted differently from them and carried a girl on his neck in the prayer. Making something clear by example is much more effective than a mere precept.” (Fiqh-us-Sunnah)

5) Acts of kindness
Rasulullah (SAW) said, “Acts of kindness protect one from ruin wrought by evil.”
(Fiqh-us-Sunnah)
Rasulullah (SAW) said, “Allah is Kind and He loves kindness. Kindness is not to be found in anything but that it adds to its beauty.” (Sahih Muslim)

6) Injustice
Rasulullah (SAW)) said, “If a man suffers injustice and endures it patiently, Allah will grant him strength.” (Fiqh-us-Sunnah)

7) Remember Allah
Rasulullah (SAW) said, “When any group of people remembers Allah, angels surround them and mercy covers them, tranquility descends upon them, and Allah mentions them to those who are with Him.”  (Fiqh-us-Sunnah)

الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُمْ بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ۗ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ

Those who believe, and whose hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah. for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction.”
(Surah Radd 13:28)

8) Visit the sick
Rasulullah (SAW) said, “Heaven calls out to anyone who visits a sick person: ‘You are good and your path is good. May you enter your residence in Paradise.” (Fiqh-us-Sunnah)


9) The golden rule
Rasulullah (SAW) said, “Do you know who will go first on the Day of Resurrection to the shade of Allah? Those who when given what is right accept it, when asked for something give freely and who judge in favour of others as they do for themselves.”
(Al-Tirmidhi)

10) Allah loves you
A man once came to Rasulullah (SAW) with a sheet of cloth and something in his hand. The man said, “I saw a group of trees and heard the sound of young birds. I took them and put them in my garment. Their mother then came and began to hover around my head. I showed (the chicks) to her and she fell on them. I wrapped them (all) with my garment. They are now with me.” Rasulullah (SAW) said to his companions, “Are you surprised at the affection of the mother for her young? … Allah is more affectionate to His servants than a mother to her young ones. Take (the chicks) back and put them where you found them.” (Abu Dawud)

11) A friendly word
Rasulullah (SAW) told his companions, “Save yourselves from (Hell) even if with half of a date (given in charity), and if that is not available then (save yourselves) by saying a friendly word.” (Al-Bukhari)

12) A place in Paradise
Rasulullah (SAW) said, “Whoever builds a Masjid, seeking Allah’s pleasure, Allah will build for him a similar place in Paradise.” (Al-Bukhari)

13) Avoid anger
A man once said to Rasulullah (SAW), “Teach me some words that I can live by. Do not make them too much for me, lest I forget.” Rasulullah (SAW) replied, “Do not become angry.”
