What is decent and good character? How can we perform decent and moral things? The humblest way to response these queries is to look at the Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) as a perfect precedent. He  ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) is the perfect sample of good personality. Here we would like to discuss tips for developing good character.
