Four Pillars of Dignity

Four Pillars of Manhood

Islam teaches us to be mature and maintain dignity. And keep away from all things that can embarrass us and drop our dignity. There are four pillars that we should strive for, if we want to gain dignity.

Ar-Rabi’ ibn Soleman reported that Ash-Shafi’i (may Allah blesses him) says,

الْمُرُوءَةُ أَرْبَعَةُ أَرْكَانٍ حُسْنُ الْخُلُقِ وَالسَّخَاءُ وَالتَّوَاضُعُ وَالنُّسُكُ

“Dignity is based upon four pillars: good character, generosity, humility, and cautious piety” [al-Sunan al-Kubra].

Strive for these four qualities and you will be a respectable and a person with pride.

May Allah lead us to be a better Muslim and help us to maintain our dignity. Aameen
