One of the great scholars of the Maliki school of fiqh, Imam Abu Zaid al-Maliki, said that all attributes of goodness stem from four hadiths[a]:
- The hadith in which the Prophet (sas) says to speak well or remain silent.
- The hadith about leaving that which does not concern him.
- The hadith in which the Prophet (sas) said to a man asking for advice - “Do not get angry. Do not get angry. Do not get angry.”
- “You will not attain true belief until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.”
