The book presents the comprehensive nature of Islamic morality, which covers all aspects of life - public as well as private, religious as well as social, economic as well as political. Islamic morality is not limited to Muslim society, but it extends to human society.
The essential qualities of Muslim character are Taqwa, truthfulness, trust, sincerity, tolerance, forgiveness, patience, fairness in dealings, brotherhood, love, mercy and generosity. This personality is attainable and was exemplified by the Messenger of God, who was sent to perfect the moral character. It is incumbent on all Muslims to strive for the moral character exemplified by the Messenger of God.
