The best gift a father can bestow on his child

Kindly provide the source and authenticity of the following narration:

“The best thing a father can give his son is good manners”




Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) and others have recorded the following narration:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is reported to have said,

” There is no gift that a father gives his child more virtuous than good manners.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1952)


Imam Tirmidhi has declared the Hadith as weak. The Hadith however, is suitable to quote as is the ruling of Hadiths of this nature.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best
