The immense rewards Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has in store for those who observe good character Textual proofs from the Qur’an and the Sunnah to this effect are numerous, including the following:

Good character will be the heaviest righteous deed to be placed on a person’s scale of deeds on the Day of Judgement.
The Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said:

“No deed that will be placed on the scale of deeds [on the Day of Judgement] will be heavier than good character. Indeed, a person with good character will attain the rank of those with a good record of voluntary fasts and prayers.”
[Sunan At-Tirmidhee: 2003]

● It is the very deed that will lead people to enter Paradise the most.
When the Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was asked about which act leads people to enter Paradise the most, he replied:

“Piety and good character.”
[Sunan At-Tirmidhee: 2004; Sunan Ibn Maajah: 4246]

● Of all people, those who have good character will be the closest to the Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) on the Day of Judgement.
The Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said:
“The dearest to me among you and the nearest to me on the Day of Judgement are those who have the best character.”
[Sunan At-Tirmidhee: 2018]

● The Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) guarantees a house in the highest part of Paradise to those who have good character:

“I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for those who give up arguing, even if they are in the right; and I guarantee a house in the middle of Paradise for those who abandon lying even when joking; and I guarantee a house in the highest part of Paradise for those who have good character and manners.”
[Sunan Abu Daawood: 4800]

Good character is one of the meritorious deeds in the sight of Allah and serves to give us a sense of inner fulfilment and happiness.
