My Islamic Manners-Akhlaq

Islamic Manners-Akhlaq

My Islamic MannersAkhlaq means good Character This is very important in Islam because it teaches you how to live in the world with the people and leads you to Paradise. 

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Nothing is heavier on the believer’s Scale on the Day of Judgment than good character. For indeed Allah, Most High, is angered by the shameless obscene person.”(Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2002) My Islamic Manners-Akhlaq

Character building starts very early in a child.

Here are ten easy things for kids to learn and say.


ٱلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ   (As-salamu alaykum)

When I greet or see someone, I say “As-salamu alaykum.”

It means “Peace be upon you.”

وَعَلَيْكُمُ ٱلسَّلَامُ (Wa ʿalaykumu s-salam)

When someone greets me with Salaam, I reply with “Wa ʿalaykumu s-salam.”

It means “And upon you be peace.”



بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم (Bismillahi ar-Rahmani ar-Rahim)
Whenever I begin a new task or start eating or drinking, I say “Bismillahi ar-Rahmani ar-Rahim.”
It means “In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.”

إنْ شَاءَ ٱللَّٰهُ‎ (Insha’Allah)
Whenever I plan to do something, I say, “Insha’Allah.”
 It means “If Allah wills.”



سُبْحَانَ ٱللَّٰهِ (Subhan Allah)
When something makes me happy, I say, “Subhan Allah.”
It means “Glory be to Allah.”

جَزَاكَ ٱللَّٰهُ خَيْرًا (JazakAllahu khairan)
When I receive a gift, or someone does something nice for me or helps me, I say, “JazakAllahu khairan.”
It means “May Allah reward you (with) good.”



مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ لَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ (Masha Allah la quwatta illabillah)
When I see something that I like or that which pleases me, I say, “Masha Allah la quwatta illabillah”
It means, “This is what Allah has willed. There is no power except with Allah.”

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ (Al-Hamduli l-lah)
When I sneeze, I say “Alhamdulillah”
It means “All praise is for Allah.”
And, in reply, the person who hears me says يَرْحَمُكَ اللَّهُ “Yarhamu kallah.”
It means “May Allah have mercy on you.”
And then I say, يَهْدِيكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيُصْلِحُ بَالَكُمْ “Yahdikumul-lah wa Yuslih balakum”
It means, “May Allah give you guidance and improve your condition.”



لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِٱللَّٰهِ‎ (lā ḥawla wa-lā quwwata ʾillā bi-llāh)
When faced with problems and difficulties, a supplication that I must make very often is “lā ḥawla wa-lā quwwata ʾillā bi-llāh.”
It means, “There is no power and no strength except with Allah.”

إِنَّا لِلَّٰهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ‎ (innā li-llāhi wa-ʾinna ʾilayhi rājiʿūn)
When affliction happens, or a disaster strikes, I say “innā li-llāhi wa-ʾinna ʾilayhi rājiʿūn.”
It means, “Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return.”
