The importance of respect in our Din

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I have heard many quote this statement as a Hadith: Din in it’s entirety is Adab. Can you confirm this?



I haven’t seen this as a Hadith in the popular Hadith sources.

This is more commonly cited as the statement of the salaf (pious predecessors). Among them is ‘Allamah Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullah) in his Madarijus Salikin, vol.2 pg.363.

Respect/etiquette (adab) holds a lofty position in Islam. Unfortunately, we live in an era in which this sacred teaching of Islam is almost totally ignored!

May Allah Ta’ala guide us all. Amin.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
