عَنْ النَّوَّاسِ بْنِ سَمْعَانَ الْأَنْصَارِيِّ أَنَّهُ سَأَلَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَنْ الْبِرِّ وَالْإِثْمِ فَقَالَ الْبِرُّ حُسْنُ الْخُلُقِ وَالْإِثْمُ مَا حَاكَ فِي نَفْسِكَ وَكَرِهْتَ أَنْ يَطَّلِعَ النَّاسُ عَلَيْهِ

An-Nawwas bin Sam’an (RAA) narrated, ‘I asked the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) about virtue and vice. He said, ‘Virtue is a kind disposition and vice is what rankles in your heart and you would disapprove that people should come to know of it.’

(Hadith translation taken from


1. Every good deed by a Muslim is a part of praiseworthy conduct (akhlaq) and merits reward from Allah.

2. Evil deeds are a form of immoral conduct and result in sin.

3. Every sin by a Muslim brings the heart unease.

4. Those who sin would be ashamed if their wrongdoings were to be made known to others.

Let us be steadfast in doing good and refrain from sinful acts!
