Morality in Islam

 A muslim's good moral behavior is an attribute that the Prophet Mohammad (SAW) possessed. His teaching illuminates the lives of the people with the right virtue and good manners, to create in them brightness of character and to fill their laps with the pearls of good conduct.

The value of morality in Islam is very high. In fact, the Prophet (SAW) said: That on the Day of Judgement there will be nothing weightier in their balance than their good moral character. Take a look, however, at the period of the pre-Islamic days of the Arabs in which they were proud of their ignorance and wickedness. But when Islam was introduced, it removed the intensity of feelings and introduced the practice of pardon and forgiveness in society.

In Islam, the better way and the best training of moral values should be explained and clarified in such a way that the heart may be convinced and that people can adopt them for attaining good and righteous qualities. Thus, the most excellent guide for the Muslim's conduct in all spheres of his life is the Holy Qur'an and the Prophet's example or practice.
