Characteristics of the Obedient Worshipper

Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah says:

The obedient worshipper does not contradict the commands and prohibitions of Allah. Along with that, he has good and righteous character. He possesses virtues such as forbearance, dignity, tranquility, mercy, patience, and fulfilling promises.

In addition to these noble traits,he is also gentle-natured and truthful. His chest is safe from rancor, deception, malice and envy.He possesses humility towards the people of Eemaan (faith) but he is firm and unwavering towards the enemies of Allah. At the same time, he safeguards himself from having to surrender and humble to anything other than Allah.
Forgiveness, bravery, generosity, morality are all virtues that comply with the Sharee’ah, Fitrah, and intellect.

Moreover the good servant prefers the best food. This is the wholesome, healthy, lawful food, which provides the body and soul with the best nutrition. Likewise, in his selection of wives, companions and even fragrances, this person only desires the best and most suitable. As a result, his soul, body, character, actions, speech, food, drink, clothing, marriage,his associates, and his final resting place are all good.

for this Allah says,

الذين تتوفاهم الملائكة طيبين يقولون سلام عليكم ادخلوا الجنة بما كنتم تعملون

” Those whose lives the angels take while they are in a pious state ( i.e. pure from all evil and worshiping none but Allah alone ) saying (to them) , Salaamun ‘Alaykum (peace be unto you), enter you (into) Paradise, because of (that good) which you used to do (in this world).”(An-Nahl: Verse 32)

Allah also said:

سلام عليكم طبتم فادخلوها خالدين

” Peace is upon you, you have done well, so enter here to abide therein forever.”(Az Zumar: Verse 73)
