كتاب حسن الخلق
47
Good Character

Yahya related to me from Malik that Muadh ibn Jabal said, "The last advice the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, gave me when I put my foot in the stirrup was that he said, 'Make your character good for the people, Muadh ibn Jabal!' "

وَحَدَّثَنِي عَنْ مَالِكٍ، أَنَّ مُعَاذَ بْنَ جَبَلٍ، قَالَ آخِرُ مَا أَوْصَانِي بِهِ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم حِينَ وَضَعْتُ رِجْلِي فِي الْغَرْزِ أَنْ قَالَ ‏ "‏ أَحْسِنْ خُلُقَكَ لِلنَّاسِ يَا مُعَاذُ بْنَ جَبَلٍ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
