Hi all readers! In this article I will explain about the nicest person and the worst person according to Islam. As Muslims we really need to know that so we know who they really are and so we try to be nicest person.
Okay! Straight to!
But before I explain about who is the nicest person and who is the worst person according to Islam, first I will tell you, that in Islamic teachings there is an agreement that cannot be sued, that nicest person is the Prophet Muhammad. He is the most noble creature, the lover of Allah, that the creature that was first created by Allah is his soul. Allah made him Messenger as a mercy for the universe;
وَمَآ أَرۡسَلۡنَٰكَ إِلَّا رَحۡمَةٗ لِّلۡعَٰلَمِينَ ١٠٧
And We have not sent you but as a mercy to the worlds. (Al-Anbiyaa’ ; 107).
Indeed, it is true! But in this discussion, I will not explain it as a basis for theme analysis, even though at the conclusion of the conclusion the Prophet Muhammad became nicest person. I will discuss this theme in the context of humans other than the Prophets and the Messengers. In other words, I will reflect on ordinary human characteristics that we can call the best human beings and the worst human characteristics.
I will quote some hadith to explain this theme. Pay attention!
عن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال ؛ جاء رجل إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال ؛ يا رسول الله أي الناس أحب إلى الله ، وأي الأعمال أحب إلى الله ؟ فقال ؛ أحب الناس إلى الله أنفعهم للناس ، يكشف عنه كربة ، أو يقضي عنه دينا ، أو يطرد عنه جوعا ، ولأن أمشي أخ لي حاجة أحب إلي من أن أعتكف في هذا المسجد — مسجد المدينة — شهرا
From Ibn Umar radliyallaahu ‘anhu, he said, “Someone came to the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam then said,” O Messenger of Allah, who is the person who is most liked by Allah and what actions are most preferred by Allah? He then said, “The person who is most liked by Allah is the most beneficial for humans (other people), he removes the sadness of others, pays other people’s debts, and eliminates hunger from others. I would rather walk with my brother who needs me than I doing i’tikaf in this mosque – the mosque in Medina – for one month.”
One day the Prophet Muhammad gave advice to Ali bin Abi Talib.
“The nicest person on the side of Allah is the person who is most beneficial to others and the person who is bad on the side of Allah is a person who is long and bad. The nicest person is person who is person that long life and good deeds. The most hated person of Allah is the person who eats alone, refuses his helper, hits his slave, glorifies the rich and humiliates the indigent. People who are worse than him are people who live in things that are illegitimate and die in things that are unlawful. People who are worse than him are people who are of a long age but their actions are bad and do not stop doing something that has been forbidden by Allah Ta’ala even though he greatly alleviates His forgiveness. People who are worse than him are people who show alms to his Muslim brothers even though he does different things behind him. People who are worse than him are people who are beginning to forget and the end of their age is lazy to obey Allah Ta’ala.
“O Ali! Generous people have three signs; he connected the relationship with the person who had cut it off, he gave something to the person who did not give it to him, he forgave the person who had denied him.”
All readers! If we reflect on some of the data above, then of course we already know, that the characteristics of the best people are the most beneficial for others. It is very clearly explained in the first hadith, that “The person who is most favored by Allah is the most beneficial for humans (other people)…” Standardization like that is very reasonable, because people like no one can escape the role of others; until whenever he will always need someone else. This ability and ability to help people in need is a very special value, which makes this person the status of nicest person.
Such a fact would seem very logical if we analyze the advice of the Prophet Muhammad about three signs of generous people; such people don’t think about the ego anymore. For him, the best is to provide benefits to others; he did not think of the loss because of the behavior of others to him.
The worst person is someone who does not want to benefit others when he is able to do it. This is the opposite of nicest person. We can find an explanation of that in the advice of the Prophet Muhammad above.
All readers! that’s a brief explanation of the theme of this article. May be useful! Amen!
See you again in the next article!
The advice of the Prophet Muhammad is in the book “Washiyyatu al-Mushthafaa”, al-Miftaah Publishing, Surabaya, Indonesia, p. 11 and 14.
