To avoid the forbidden

The Forbidden: it is all that which Allah has prohibited the Muslims to do, and has ordered them, in the Quran or the Sunnah, to keep away from it.
Allah the Almighty said in Surah al-Ana’am, verse 151:
{come not near to shameful sins, whether committed openly or secretly, and kill not anyone whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause. This He has commanded you that you may understand.}

Allah’s Messenger was asked about the deed which will be foremost to lead a man to Paradise. He replied: “Fear of Allah and good character.” [Tirmidhi].
We want to introduce, in this section, some of the good manners that each Muslim should have in his character and the Muslim may ask Allah’s help to grant him these good ethics.

The Messenger of Allah S said:
“Avoid the seven great destructive sins.” The people inquired, ‘O Allah’s Messenger! What are they?’ He said: “To join others in worship along with Allah, to kill the life which Allah has forbidden except for a just cause, magic, to consume usury (riba), to consume an orphan’s wealth, to turn away from the enemy and flee from the battlefield when the battle begins, and to accuse chaste women, who never even think of anything that would tarnish their chastity and are good believers.” [Bukhari]
