Hadith on Character: The most beloved to the Prophet have the best character

November 2, 2012

Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Shall I tell you about the most beloved to me and the closest to my assembly on the Day of Resurrection?” They were silent, so the Prophet repeated himself two or three times. They said, “Yes, O Messenger of Allah.” The Prophet said, “Those with the best character.”
