Exhortation to have pleasing manners

 Exhortation to have pleasing manners

The way a Muslim is an embodiment of peace and security for another Muslim, in the same way, he/she is an embodiment of peace for a non-Muslim as well.  Let alone swords, arrows and other weapons a Muslim doesn’t hurt anyone with his/her tongue.  A real Muslim’s talk is sweet and pleasing.  Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran:

وَقُولُواْ لِلنَّاسِ حُسْناً

Speak politely and in a pleasant manner.[1]

To treat others in a pleasing and courteous manner, Islam has not discriminated between Muslims and non-Muslims, but this command is for one and all.

Non-Muslims also should be spoken to sweetly and courteously. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has said:

وَخَالِقِ النَّاسَ بِخُلُقٍ حَسَنٍ

Translation: Behave with everyone with good manners.[2] 

[1] Surah Baqarah (2:83)

[2] Jame’ Tirmidhi, Babu Ma Ja'a Fi Ma’asharatin Naas, Hadith No. 2115
