In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful The Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) described in many traditions who the “best” Muslims are and what they do to distinguish themselves from others. As Muslims ourselves, it is in our interest to learn what makes these people the best of Muslims so we can emulate their behavior.
First and foremost, the best Muslims are those who have the best character. The meaning of ‘character’ here is comprehensive; good character towards Allah, towards other people, and towards society at large. It encompasses all of the Islamic virtues such justice, compassion, humility, and truthfulness.
Abdullah ibn Amr, RadhiAllahu Anhu, reported: The Messenger of Allah, SallAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, said: إِنَّ مِنْ خِيَارِكُمْ أَحْسَنَكُمْ أَخْلَاقًا Verily, among the best of you are those with the best character.

Verily, the best people in Islam are those with the best character.
