Hadith on Character: A house in paradise for those with honesty and character

March 16, 2017

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever abandons lies in support of falsehood, then a house will be built for him in the surroundings of Paradise. Whoever abandons arguments even though he is right, then a house will be built for him in its middle. And whoever makes his character excellent, then a house will be built for him in its highest part.”

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَنْ تَرَكَ الْكَذِبَ وَهُوَ بَاطِلٌ بُنِيَ لَهُ فِي رَبَضِ الْجَنَّةِ وَمَنْ تَرَكَ الْمِرَاءَ وَهُوَ مُحِقٌّ بُنِيَ لَهُ فِي وَسَطِهَا وَمَنْ حَسَّنَ خُلُقَهُ بُنِيَ لَهُ فِي أَعْلَاهَا
