Hadith on Tazkiyyah: Pure hearts have no aggression, malice, envy

Abdullah ibn Amr reported: We said, “O Messenger of Allah, who are the best of people?” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “One with a heart swept clean and truthful in speech.” We said, “O Messenger of Allah, we recognize truthful speech, but what is a heart swept clean?” The Prophet said, “One that is Godfearing and pure, in which there is neither sin, nor transgression, nor envy.” We said, “Who shows a sign of it?” The Prophet said, “One who despises worldliness and loves the Hereafter.” They said, “And who shows a sign of it?” The Prophet said, “A believer with good character.”

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ عَمْرِو بْنِ الْعَاصِ قَالَ قُلْنَا يَا نَبِيَّ اللهِ مَنْ خَيْرُ النَّاسِ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ذُو الْقَلْبِ الْمَخْمُومِ وَاللِّسَانِ الصَّادِقِ قَالَ قُلْنَا قَدْ عَرَفْنَا اللِّسَانَ الصَّادِقَ فَمَا الْقَلْبُ الْمَخْمُوم قَالَ التَّقِيُّ النَّقِيُّ الَّذِي لَا إِثْمَ فِيهِ وَلَا بَغْيَ وَلَا حَسَدَ قَالَ قُلْنَا يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ فَمَنْ عَلَى أَثَرِهِ قَالَ الَّذِي يَشْنَأُ الدُّنْيَا وَيُحِبُّ الْآخِرَةَ قُلْنَا فَمَنْ عَلَى إِثْرِهِ قَالَ مُؤْمِنٌ فِي خُلُقٍ حَسَنٍ
