Having a Good Way of Saying Things

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

From the beautiful character traits [we should all adopt] is having a good way of saying things, whether that’s in the way we greet others, excuse ourselves, excuse others, [express] affection, or other than that. A person who has a good way of saying things is one [others] incline toward, is one close to [people’s] hearts. And our Lord says:

وَقُلْ لِعِبَادِي يَقُولُوا الَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ

And tell My slaves to say whatever is best [of words and speech] (Al-Isrāʾ 53, partial extract)
