Ihsan – Excellence & Perfection

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Allah has commanded that everything (one does), they should do with excellence (ihsan). When you sacrifice, sacrifice well. Sharpen your knife and make it easy for the animal to be slaughtered.” [Sahih Muslim]

According to another hadith, the Sahabah were preparing somebody’s grave. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) told them to make it in a straight line. He told them that it made no difference to the deceased whether their grave were straight or not, but when Muslims do anything they should attempt it with excellence.

Don’t just aim to be ‘good’, be outstanding! This is what is required of a Muslim, in everything they do!
