Importance of Manners

Sufyân Al-Thawrî (may Allah have mercy on him):

“A man who wanted to write hadîth would [learn] manners and worship for twenty years before starting.”

[Abû Nu’aym, Hilyatu Al-Awliya, 6:361]

Lack of manners despite having knowledge is the most despicable thing in a person. Good manners plough the heart to make way for the seeds of knowledge to be placed. But terrible manners burn the trees of knowledge planted in one’s heart one by one without one realizing.
