[Quran:17/53, 2/83]

ostentatious [Quran:22/30]

the society and is commonly used [Quran:/5]

relative [Quran:6/152]

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

without full knowledge is a trivial matter. But it might have grave
consequences [Quran:24/15- 16]

21. When you hear something malicious about someone, keep a
favourable view about him/her until you attain full knowledge about

22. Ascertain the truth of any news, lest you smite someone in
ignorance and afterwards repent of what you did [Quran:49/6]

23. Do not follow blindly any information of which you have no direct
knowledge. (Using your faculties of perception and conception) you
must verify it for yourself. In the Court of your Lord, you will be
held accountable for your hearing, sight, and the faculty of
reasoning [Quran:17/36] .

and nobody knows more than yourself. Remember! Above everyone endowed
with knowledge is another endowed with more knowledge [12/76]. Even

Advance me in knowledge." [Quran:20:114]

greeting still more courteous or (at least) of equal courtesy

compliment the inmates [Quran:24/61]

permission; and then greet the inmates and wish them a life of

transportation. [Quran:4/36]

with others in evil and bad matters [Quran:5/2]

43. Do no try to impress people on account of self-proclaimed virtues

deeds yourself, then preach [Quran:2/44]

45. Correct yourself and your families first [before trying to
correct others] [Quran:66/6]

46. Pardon gracefully if anyone among you who commits a bad deed out
of ignorance, and then repents and amends [Quran:6/54, 3/134]

47. Divert and sublimate your anger and potentially virulent emotions
to creative energy, and become a source of tranquillity and comfort
to people [Quran:3/134]

48. Call people to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful
exhortation. Reason with them most decently [Quran:16/125]

49. Leave to themselves those who do not give any importance to the
Divine code and have adopted and consider it as mere play and
amusement [Quran:6/70]

50. Sit not in the company of those who ridicule Divine Law unless
