“And surely you are on an exalted standard of character.” (Surah Qalam 68:4)

The character of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is described most aptly by his dear wife Hazrat Ayesha (RA) who said: "His character was the Qur'an." (Musnad Ahmad)

The noble character of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) conformed perfectly with the teachings and guidance of the Noble Qur'an.

Hazrat 'Ali (R) said that 'exalted quality of character' signifies the 'good manners taught by the Qur'an'. This signifies that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) possessed such character and excellence that qualified him to be the true guide and inspiration for humanity. Nabi r was a complete embodiment of all good that a human is capable of possessing. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) himself said: "I have been sent to perfect noble conduct." (Musnad Bazzar)

Compassion for the young

Hazrat Anas bin Malik (R) says: "I remained in the service of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) for ten years. He never once told me 'oof.' When I did something, he never asked me: 'Why did you do so?'. If I did not do a certain task, he never asked me as to why I had not done so?" (Bukhari, Muslim)

This is indicative of the sublimity and consistency in conduct with such a young person who was in the service of the Master (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

Hazrat Anas (R) narrates, “Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) had the best of Akhlaq. One day he sent me for some task - I said to myself that by Allah I will not do what Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) had instructed me to do. I passed by some boys playing in the market place and got occupied with them. Suddenly Nabi r placed his hand on my neck from behind me. I looked at him and he smiled at me asking, “O Unais! Did you go where I instructed to go?” I replied, “Yes. I’m going now O Nabi r.” (Muslim)

Not causing harm to anyone
Hazrat Ayesha (RA) said: "Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) never struck anyone with his hands, except when he was in battle. He did not hit any servant, nor any woman. He would never take revenge for any harm or mistake done. He would only implement the required punishment on those who violated Allah's laws." (Muslim)

Never said ‘No’
Hazrat Jabir (R) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) never said 'no' to the request of a person. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Always smiling
Hazrat Jareer ibn Abdillah Al Bajali (R) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) did not turn me away since I accepted Islam nor did he r look towards me except that he had a smile on his blessed face. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Noble Speech & mannerisms

Hazrat Ayesha (RA) narrates: "It was not the nature of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) to talk indecently, nor did he engage himself in the use of obscene language. He would not shout and talk in the bazaars (which is against dignity). He did not avenge a bad deed with a bad one, but forgave it. Thereafter, he would not even mention it." (Tirmizi)
Hazrat Anas (R) narrates, “I was walking with Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), and he was wearing a coarse-edged shawl that was manufactured in Najran. A Bedouin approached Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and pulled the shawl with such force that I saw the effects of it’s imprints on the blessed shoulder of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). He then said, “Assign to me some of Allah’s wealth that is in your possession!” Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) turned towards him, smiled, and commanded somebody to give him some wealth.” (Bukhari)

Service to the family
Hazrat Aswad (R) says, “I asked Hazrat Ayesha (RA) what Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to do in his house?” Hazrat Ayesha (RA) replied, “He (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was in the service of his family. When the time of Salah arrived he would go for Salah. (Bukhari)

Greeting with affection
Hazrat Anas (R) narrates that when Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would meet anyone he would not pull his hand away until that person moved his hand and he would not turn his face away until that person turned his face away…” (Tirmizi, Ibn Majah)

Forgiveness & compassion
On the occasion of Fath Makkah Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) had all the opportunity to take revenge against the Makkans who tormented the Muslims for 10 years in Makkah Mukarramah.
Yet he addressed them with the following words: “…O group of the Quraish! What do you think I’m going to do to you?” They replied, “We think that you will be good to us. You are a noble brother who is a son of a noble brother.” He (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “I am addressing you in the same manner which Hazrat Yusuf (AS) addressed his brothers: ‘There is no reproach on you today. Go, for you are all free.’” (Faidhul Qadeer, Seeratul Mustafa)
