Al-Baqir on Character: Kindness and good character are all that is good

January 9, 2017

Ibn Al-Mubarak reported: Muhammad ibn Ali Al-Baqir, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Whoever has qualities of character and kindness has been given all that is good and comforting. His situation will be pleasant in his life and in his Hereafter. And whoever is deprived of qualities of kindness and character, then it will be a means of every evil and adversity for him, except for those who are protected by Allah Almighty.”

عن ابن المبارك قَالَ محمد بن علي الباقر رحمه الله مَنْ أُعْطِيَ الْخُلُقَ وَالرِّفْقَ فَقَدْ أُعْطِيَ الْخَيْرَ كُلَّهُ وَالرَّاحَةَ وَحَسُنَ حَالُهُ فِي دُنْيَاهُ وَآخِرَتِهِ وَمِنْ حُرِمَ الرِّفْقَ وَالْخُلُقَ كَانَ ذَلِكَ لَهُ سَبِيلًا إِلَى كُلِّ شَرٍّ وَبَلِيَّةٍ إِلَّا مَنْ عَصَمَهُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى
