Who have understanding of deen and Husnay Khulq(Good conduct)? PART 1


Abu Hurairah (R.A) narrated : Allah’s Messenger (Sallalahu A'lyhe wasalam) said, “Two characteristics are not found together in a hypocrite pleasant personality and understanding of deen.” (Tirmidhi : Kitab-ul-Ilm :2684)
Imam A’bdul Rehman Mubarak comments on this Hadith saying,“Prophet advised Mumin’s to link themselves with two Qualities and He stopped them from becoming like Munafiq, who have only one Quality and not the other”.
This means a Munafiq cannot have both qualities in him.Only one can exist, either “Understanding of deen”, or ” Good character/Pleasant personality(Husny-Akhlaq).If we want to follow the advise of Prophet than we must have both qualities. In sha ALLAH
Qualities of Mu’min : 1-Understanding of Deen  2- Good character.
Firstly, We shall discuss about “Good character”.There are lots of misconceptions about Good character in our society.People think giving smile to everyone(including Non mahram),manners which WE THINK ARE GOOD,eat which we like but wear what people like and caring for others when they visit your home is,”Good character”.Such people show goodness in-front of people but in their hearts they conceal hatred and suspicious.But , let us remind ourselves that we must not forget the standards and teachings set by Messenger of Allah.Let us remove this man made deen from Mind and learn from the teachings of Messenger of ALLAH,
“What Actually Good character(Husnay-Khulq) is”?
Ibn-e-Hajar explains that Good character means:
1- To find the ways of goodness (Khair).
2- To adopt the Seerah(life) of Saliheen(Righteous ).
3-Purify your inner and outer actions.
First Point :“To find the ways of goodness (Khair).”
It means to find good ways.For example : Going to Islamic school and seeking knowledge is the way of goodness which you found.
Second Point : “To adopt the Seerah(life) of Saliheen(Righteous )”.
Allah says in Surah Al-Qalam, Ayah 4 And verily, you (O Muhammad ) are on an exalted standard of character.”
The habits, Kalam, and Relations of Prophet are standard for us and not better than anyone.
How can we adopt the standard character of Prophet until or unless we donot study Seerah =)?
Third Point: “Purify your inner and outer actions”
This means whatever is in your heart must co-incide with outer actions.For example : Some people meet with each other and compliment or smile but at the back one of them backbite.This is not Husny Khulq that you meet with smile and love but at the back you eat the flesh of your brother.
Allah gives us a KEY to unlock the hearts which hurts you ,betrays you or is your enemy.In Surah Al -Mu’min Ayah 96,
“. Repel evil with that which is better. We are Best-Acquainted with the things they utter.”
Be good with the one who is evil and leave rest upon ALLAH because the evil person have to payback  his words or actions on the day of judgement.
Allah explains more about this matter in Surah Fussilat Ayah 34,” The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better (i.e. Allah ordered the faithful believers to be patient at the time of anger, and to excuse those who treat them badly), then verily! he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend.”
