What is the real definition of politeness?

SHARE

SHAFAQNA – Imam Jawad (AS) defined politeness as: Having good characteristics, without having any bad or inappropriate features. With politeness, the human being can reach the height of morality in the world and the hereafter; and also by observing politeness one can attain paradise [1]. In another narration, Imam Jawad (AS) made clear the ideal politeness by saying: People consider only polite speaking and not using bad words as the real meaning and definition of politeness but this view cannot be justified so long as it does not bring the human being close to God and the paradise. Therefore, politeness means observing religious decrees and affairs; so by acting on Divine Commands and the commands of infallible Imams (AS), show your politeness [2].
