The seven traits of Musa(AS)

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Moses asked his Lord about six traits he thought he had, but the seventh he did not like.

Moses said: O Lord, who is the most God-fearing of Your servants?
Allah said: Those who remember and do not forget.

Moses said: Who is the most guided of Your servants?
Allah said: Those who follow the guidance.

Moses said: Who is the best in judgment of Your servants?
Allah said: Those who judge people as they would love to be judged themselves.

Moses said: Who are the most knowledgeable of Your servants?
Allah said: A scholar who is unsatisfied with his knowledge and adds the knowledge of people to his own.

Moses said: Who are the most honoured of Your servants?
Allah said: Those who forgive when they have power over others.

Moses said: Who are the richest of Your servants?
Allah said: Those who are pleased with what they have.

Moses said: Who are the poorest of Your servants?
Allah said: Those who desire more than they need.”
