Speak to people kindly and treat them nicely. [2:83]

When you are greeted with a greeting, respond with a better greeting or, at least, in the same manner. [4:86]

Greet each other saying, “Salamun alaikum!” (Peace and salutes to you!) [6:54]

When you enter your own home or the home of somebody else, compliment the inmates with a blissful greeting. [24/61]

Obtain permission and greet people with peace before entering any houses. [24:27]

Manners, Attitude, Behavior

Shun flamboyant behavior. [22:30]

Be a source of tranquility and comfort to others. [3:134]

Pardon people gracefully. [3:134]

Help one another in acts of collective benefit and security and do not help one another in the acts of societal harm and discord. [5:2]

Make room for others to let them make progress in the society. [58:11]

Visit people at the appointed time and avoid futile conversation. [33:53]

Mankind Is One Community

All mankind is one community. [2:213, 10:19, 23:52]

A noble ideology makes people brothers and sisters. [3:103, 6:165, 49:10]

Those who share the Divine ideology are one family. [49:10]

Justice

Do not harm the advocates of justice. [3:21]

Do not bribe the officials or the judges to deprive others of their rightful belongings. [2:188]

Be staunch in justice, even though your witness goes against yourself or your parents or your kindred. [4:135]

Uphold justice, be a witness to the truth. [5:8]

Let not the hatred of any people move you away from justice. Always deal justly. [5:8]

(What goes around comes around.) Whoever has done an atom’s weight of good or evil, will see it. [99:7-8]

Do not withhold from people things that are rightfully theirs. [7:85]

Those who harass, molest or rape women could face capital punishment. [33:60]

Everyone shall be justly compensated for one’s labor. [39:70, 53:39]

Mannerism

Do not be arrogant with people, and do not walk haughtily on earth. [31:18]

Walk humbly and lower your voice in humility. [31:19]

Pride of knowledge is the height of arrogance since above every man of knowledge there is one who knows more. [12:76]

Do not shout. Speak politely keeping your voice low. [31/19]

Do not be a bragging boaster. [31/18]

Be proactive rather than reactive. [3:17]

Do not argue in matters of which you have no knowledge. [3:66]

Do not ridicule the under-privileged for insufficient help. [9:79]

Sublimate your anger into creative energy. [3:134]

Be moderate in your pace. [31:19]

Walk on earth humbly and when the ignorant address you, say, “Peace!” [25:63]

When you hear a slander, think well of the fellow human beings. [24:12-16]

Do not slander. [24:4]

Do not ridicule others, nor defame them. [49:11]

Do not insult each other by offensive nicknames. [49:11]

Avoid suspicion and guesswork. [49:11]

Respond to harsh words and actions with kindness. [13:23]

Appreciate fine arts and the nice things of life. [7:32]

Everyone acts in a manner peculiar to himself. (Human beings tend to make their own rules of conduct), but the best path has been shown by the Creator. [17:84]

Do not walk on earth with pride. Neither could you bore through the earth, nor could you become as tall as the mountains. [17:37]
