About this publication:

In a time when the West pushes its deficient values and misguided moral codes on the cultures of the world, it is imperative that Muslims realize the completeness of the guidance of the Messenger of Allaah (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace), and realize that our true honor and distinction among the nations, as well as our success in the Hereafter, lies in embracing his guidance, in all affairs of belief and action.

Based on the scholars' continual advice to the Muslim youth, combined with the specific need that Muslims in the West have to understand and implement upright moral character, the importance of this book and the need for its translation into the English language becomes crystal clear. And what better guidebook than one based on the character of the Messenger of Allaah (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace), authored by an exemplary scholar like Shaykh Ibn al-'Uthaymīn, known for his outstanding manners!

As Salaam 'Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaah,

Having had the privilge of reading through this book a few times, I can certainly say that it is an important read for each and every Muslim who wishes to improve his/her manners and character. The late scholar, Imām Muhammad Ibn Ṣāliḥ al-’Uthaymīn (raḥimahullāh) directs the reader towards adaab and akhlaaq, firstly with Allaah the Majestic, the Messenger (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), then with one’s parents, family, kinsfolk and so forth and so on. An inspiring read which will humble the one who reflects upon it with introspect in mind. The book also contains appendices mentioning examples of the akhlaaq of the author, some touching stories which give light to the life of the scholars, the inheritors of the Prophets.

From an appendix in "UPRIGHT MORAL CHARACTER: A Concise Guide to Attaining Dignified Islāmic Character" by Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-'Uthaymīn (may Allaah have Mercy on him):

...The shaykh (may Allaah have Mercy on him) would not be pleased when people gave him special privileges due to his status.

Once, he was late for a charity engagement in Buraydah, and his driver was driving fast on the highway to get him there on time. On the way, their car was stopped at a police checkpoint. When the officer saw the shaykh in the car, he told them to proceed.

As they moved on, the shaykh asked the driver why they were stopped. The driver explained that he had been driving over the speed limit.

"Go back to the checkpoint," he ordered. When they returned to the checkpoint, the shaykh asked the officer why he had stopped them.

"For speeding," the officer replied.

"So then why did you let us go?" the shaykh asked.

"You were likely in a hurry and had something important to attend to."

"No!" said the shaykh, "How much is a speeding ticket?"

"Shaykh, there is no need…"

"How much is a speeding ticket?" the shaykh insisted.

"Three hundred."

The shaykh then handed the officer 150 riyals, and ordered him to take another 150 from the driver, and said, "Because he broke the law and I did not advise him," and he insisted that the fine be paid!
