שמע ישראל ה' אלהינו ה' אחד
فمن كان يرجوا لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

Manners

Posted By Snow at 1/08/2012

There are manners even in eating bread

Serving guests, visiting friends, dining at events - there are manners. A nation with excellent manners shows the people have achieved a higher, civilized way of living. In Islam, manners are very much appreciated - the best people is the best in their manners.
لم يكن النبي فاحشا ولا متفحشا
وإنه كان يقول : إن من خياركم أحسنكم أخلاقا
Narrated Masruq : We were sitting with Abdullah bin Amr who was narrating to us (Hadith): He said, "Allah's Messenger was neither a Fahish nor a Mutafahhish, and he used to say, 'The best among you are the best in character (having good manners)."' [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 8 Book 73 Hadith 61]
Still, in acquiring excellent manners, one would see the many rules. (~-~)' Rules which defines what is right & what is wrong. What you should do & what you shouldn't do. What is nice & what is not. It shouldn't be overwhelming, sweetheart. Maybe it's somewhat less strict than charm school?

And in Islam, there's also the etiquette of passing to the right:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad : Allah's Messenger was offered something to drink. He drank of it while on his right was a boy and on his left were some elderly people. He said to the boy, "May I give these (elderly) people first?" The boy said, "By Allah, O Allah's Messenger! I will not give up my share from you to somebody else." On that Allah's Messenger placed the cup in the hand of that boy. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7 Book 69 Hadith 524]
So sweet of Rasulullah! I think it's so charming. Perhaps he asked the little boy's permission to give the drink to his left as a sign of respect for the elderly. Still, the boy wished for his drink first, so Rasulullah respected the little boy's wish. ماشاء الله

For social relationships, there are manners revealed in Surah Al-Hujuraat. الحمد لله

Yes... there are many manners to learn. Hopefully, it is easy:
إن الدين يسر
ولن يشاد الدين أحد إلا غلبه فسددوا وقاربوا وأبشروا
واستعينوا بالغدوة والروحة وشيء من الدلجة
Narrated Abu Huraira : The Prophet said, "Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded; and gain strength by worshipping in the mornings, the nights."
[Sahih Bukhari Vol 1 Book 2 Hadith 38]
بينا أنا نائم رأيت الناس عرضوا علي وعليهم قمص
فمنها ما يبلغ الثدي، ومنها ما يبلغ دون ذلك، وعرض علي عمر وعليه قميص اجتره
قالوا فما أولته يا رسول الله، قال الدين
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: I heard Allah's Messenger saying, "While I was sleeping, the people were presented to me (in a dream). They were wearing shirts, some of which were merely covering their (chests). And some were a bit longer. Umar was presented before me and his shirt was so long that he was dragging it." They asked, "How have you interpreted it, O Allah's Messenger?" He said, "Religion."
[Sahih Bukhari, Vol 5 Book 57 Hadith 40]
This is Umar al-Khattab, who initially disbelieved Rasulullah, but was still blessed with Guidance by Allah SWT. So much he is called Al Farouq, as from concealment Islam became public. الحمد لله

I seek refuge to Allah SWT from errors
Only Allah SWT Knows best والله أعلم

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Messenger said, "Whoever has oppressed another person concerning his reputation or anything else, he should beg him to forgive him before the Day of Resurrection when there will be no money (to compensate for wrong deeds), but if he has good deeds, those good deeds will be taken from him according to his oppression which he has done, and if he has no good deeds, the sins of the oppressed person will be loaded on him."
[Sahih Bukhari 3.43.629]
