عَنْ اَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ ﷺ خَيْرُكُمْ خَيْرُكُمْ لِاَهْلِي مِنْ بَعْدِي

Abu Hurairah (l.a.) reports that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) said,

“The best of you is the one who is the best of you in his dealings with my family after me.”


It is said that والفضل ما شهدت به الاعداء (Excellence is when your enemy praises you). Thus, the standard and criterion of goodness and evil is his behavior towards the Ahle Bait (peace be upon him). If his behavior is positive, he is good; God forbid, if it is otherwise, then he is evil. And in both sides, good as well as evil, there are levels. ‘After me’ implies after the martyrdom of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) till the Day of Judgment.
