INTRODUCTION

All praises are for Allah Alone. May Peace and Salutations be upon The Last Nabie (salallahu alaihi wasallam).

Allah Ta’ala has blessed man with two forms; Khalq and Khulq. Khalq refers to the external form which consists of the body and limbs, while Khulq constitutes the spiritual parts, viz. ROOH and NAFS. The physical form is known as Soorat while the internal or spiritual form is known as Seerat or Akhlaaq. The status of Seerat ranks higher than that of Soorat because Allah Ta’ala relates it to Himself. He says, “I blew in him (Aadam) My Rooh. “

With reference to the physical body, Allah Ta’ala says, “Verily, I created man from soil.”

Thus it has been established that the object of greater honour and importance is the Seerat of man. So long as beauty is not inculcated into the internal dimension of man (Akhlaaq), he will be void of beauty and honour. Hence Akhlaaq forms one of the most important aspects of Deen. Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “A Muslim, by virtue of his excellent character, is elevated to the ranks of one who, throughout his life, spends the entire night in Ibadah and fasts during the day.” (Abu Dawood)

Allah Ta’ala sent Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) as a guide and example to the entire world. He has made the way of life of Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) the criterion of Deen. Allah Ta’ala says, “Indeed, in Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) is a beautiful example for you.”

There can be no better example than Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam). The Noble Akhlaaq of Rasulullah (salallahu alaihi wasallam) has been prepared to highlight a few aspects of Rasulullah’s (salallahu alaihi wasallam) Akhlaaq.

It is hoped that this humble effort will benefit one and all.

You are humbly requested to make Dua that Allah Ta’ala accept this modest effort. Aameen.
