Abd Allah ibn ‘Amr reported that the Prophet of Allah, upon him be peace, used very often to pray in the following manner, “O Allah! I ask You for good health, for trust, for self-control, for good manners, and to be satisfied with the divine decree.”(Bukhari)

The Prophet was asked: “Which Muslim has the perfect faith ?” He answered: “He who has the best moral character.” (Tibrani)

bdullah bin’ Amar has reported: “I have heard the Prophet as saying: ‘Should I not tell you who amongst you is the most likeable person to me 1 And who will be the nearest to me on the Day of the Judgment 1’ He repeated this question twice or thrice. The people requested him to tell them about such a person. He said ‘He who amongst you has the best moral character.'”(Ahmed)
