LESSON 1: NECESSITY OF GOOD AKHLAQ:
The above hadith shows us how important good Akhlaq (manners) is in Islam.
The Holy Prophet (S) said that the old woman was not a good person atall and that she would be one of the people in hell.
The above event tells us that:Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (A) has said that someone with good Akhlaq gets thesame Thawaab as someone who fasts during daytime and prays at night.The Holy Prophet (S) and our Holy Imams (A) managed to convert a lot ofpeople to Muslims through their good Akhlaq.Remember that when you are behaving badly out in public, people will not saylook at that boy/girl behaving badly. People will say look at that Muslimbehaving badly.You are therefore not only letting yourself and your parents down but alsoIslam.
During the Ghaibah of Our 12
Imam we all have to take care of Islam!The Holy Prophet (S) has said:
"I have been sent by Allah to teach people good manners"
Your Good Deeds do NOT count for much if your Akhlaq is bad
A person once came to theHoly Prophet (S) and said thatthere was a woman who fastedin the mornings and spent hernights in prayers, but she wasvery rude and mean to herneighbours.
