Imaam Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalaani – rahimahullaah – said:

It is reported from An-Nawwaas bn Sam’aan – radiyallaahu anhu – who said: ‘I asked the Messenger of Allaah – salallaahu alayhi wasallam – about piety and sins then he said:
“Piety and Righteousness is encompassed in Good Character, and Sinning is that which discomforts your mind and you detest that people become aware of it.”

Transmitted and Recorded by

Imaam Muslim in his ‘Sahih’ #2553


The companions, out of their inquisitive, would always ask the Rasul – salallaahu alayhi wasallam – so that they may increase in the knowledge of their Din. An-Nawwaas wanted to know about Piety and Righteousness and also its opposite. That is because, knowing the opposite of something helps you in knowing that thing perfectly.
The Rasul – salallaahu alayhi wasallam – made it clear that Piety and Righteousness is encompassed in Good Character. This shows that Good Character is something a Muslim never lacks. A lacking of this means a loss of piety and righteousness.
But sinning never leaves a believer’s heart at rest because his conscience detests it and tells him what he has done is wrong.

Baarakallaahu feekum!
