The Importance of Good Morals

Hafiz Abu Na’im al-Asbahani reported that Imam Malik ibn Anas {May Allah have Mercy upon them} said to a young boy from Quraysh:

“O! Son of my brother, learn etiquette before you acquire knowledge.”

مَالِكَ بْنَ أَنَسٍ ، يَقُولُ لِفَتًى مِنْ قُرَيْشٍ يَا ابْنَ أَخِي ، تَعَلَّمَ الأَدَبُ قَبْلَ أَنْ تَتَعَلَّمَ الْعِلْمَ

{Hilyatul’ Awliyah ~ The Adornment of the Friends of Allah}
