Having a beaming face with the young and the old

Ten Signs of Good Manners
Yusuf ibn Asbat said:

“There are ten signs of good manners, and they are:

1. Little arguing;
2. Listening well;
3. Avoiding searching for shortcomings;
4. Covering mistakes;
5. Finding excuses;
6. Patience when annoyed;
7. Blaming one’s own self;
8. Seeing one’s own fault rather than other people’s faults;
9. Having a beaming face with the young and the old;
10. Saying kind words to those who are below and above one (with regards to religious knowledge, righteousness, social status, and so forth).”
[Al-Ihyaa, vol.3, p.77]
