Excellence of Good Conduct 
Importance of Humility, Humbleness
•‘Umar radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates: I heard Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam saying: “Whoever humbles himself for the sake of Allah, Allah will exalt him. As a result of that he considers himself small, yet in the eyes of people he becomes great. He who is arrogant, Allah abases him, and he becomes small in the eyes of people, although he considers himself great to the extent that people consider him to be worse than a dog or a pig.” (Baihaqi)

• ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates that Nabi sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: “He will not enter into Paradise who has the smallest particle of arrogance in his heart.” (Muslim)

• Mu‘awiyah radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates: I heard Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam saying: “He who likes that people should stand up for him in respect, let him make his abode in Hell.” (Tirmidhi)

• Anas radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates that none was dearer to the Sahabah than Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam, yet when they saw him they did not stand up, knowing his dislike for this. (Tirmidhi)

Virtues of Forgiving Others
• Abu Dardaa’ radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates: I heard Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam saying: “No one suffers any bodily injury, yet forgives this, except that Allah raises his rank by a degree and removes a sin from him.” (Tirmidhi)

 
Jawdan radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates that Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: “If anyone offers an excuse to his Muslim brother and he does not accept the excuse, then he becomes guilty of a sin like that of an unjust tax collector.” (Ibn Majah)

• Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates that Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: “Musaa ibn ‘Imraan ‘alayhis salaam said: “O my Rabb! Who is the most respectable slave to you?” Allah, the Almighty and Majestic, replied: “He who forgives, despite having the power to avenge.” (Baihaqi)

• ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar radhiyallahu ‘anhuma narrates that a person came to Nabi sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam and asked: “O Rasulallah! How many times should I forgive my servant?” Nabi sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam remained silent. The man asked again: “O Rasulallah! How many times should I forgive my servant?” He replied: “Seventy times a day.” (Tirmidhi)

• Hudhaifah radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates: I heard Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam saying: “Indeed there was a man before your time to whom an angel came to take his soul. It was said to him: “Did you do anything good?” He replied: “I do not know.” It was said: “Recollect!” He said: “I do not remember doing anything good, except that I used to do business with people in the world, and would grant the rich more time to pay back, and let off the poor who were in constraints. At this Allah admitted him into Paradise.” (Bukhari)

• Abu Qatadah radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates: I heard Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam saying: “If anyone likes that Allah should save him from the anxieties of the Day of Resurrection, he should grant respite (in paying back a loan) to one who is in constraints, or forgo the debt.” (Muslim)

• Anas radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates: I served Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam for ten years in Madinah. I was an adolescent, therefore all my services were not according to the desire of my master. However, he never said a word of displeasure to me; neither “Why did you do this?” nor “Why did you not do that?” (Abu Dawud)

Advise on Anger Management
• Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates that a person requested Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam: “Advise me.” He said: “Do not get angry.” The man repeated this several times, and he replied: “Do not get angry.” (Bukhari)

• Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates that Rasullullah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: “The powerful is not he who knocks down others; undoubtedly the powerful is the one who controls himself in a fit of anger.” (Bukhari)

• Abu Dhar radhiyallahu ‘anhu narrates that Rasullullah sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam told us: “When one of you becomes angry while standing, he should sit down. If his anger subsides, well and good; otherwise he should lie-down.” (Abu Dawud)

• Abdullah Ibn ‘Abbas radhiyallahu ‘anhuma narrates that Nabi sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam said: “Teach religion to people, give them good tidings, do not make things difficult for them; and when anyone of you gets angry, he should remain silent.” (Musnad Ahmad)

The Prophet (ﷺ) was neither a Fahish (one who speaks bad words) nor a Mutafahhish (one who speaks obscene evil words to make people laugh).
Narrated Masruq: Abdullah bin 'Amr (Radhiyallahu Anhu) mentioned Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) saying that he was neither a Fahish nor a Mutafahish. Abdullah bin 'Amr (Radhiyallahu Anhu) added, Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, 'The best among you are those who have the best manners and character.'
Sahih al-Bukhari 6029

“The world looks stagnant yet it is moving. It looks promising, yet it is deceiving”
