To be a good Muslims means to act ethically towards oneself,
family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and strangers
The term ethics comes from the Greek word ethos, which means "character". In Islamic terminology this is known as akhlaq(plural of khulq) which means personality. It is that which is the source of all those actions which one does spontaneously without thinking about them. It comes into existence through exercise and repetitive practise and is not easily destroyed.
Even though some characteristics are inherited or acquired by the up-bringing, one has a choise to overcome that which is wrong through practise and effort. To be a good Muslims means to act ethically towards oneself, family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and strangers.
Human values are closely integrated with human life and are intertwined with our day to day chores. No human life is possible without values, as every living human being lives by certain values. Human values in essence is the struggle against the self and how it manifests itself with various modes of behaviour with those around us.
