عن النَّوَّاسِ بن سِمْعَانَ الْأَنْصَارِيِّ قال سَأَلْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ  صلى الله عليه وسلم  عن الْبِرِّ وَالْإِثْمِ فقال الْبِرُّ حُسْنُ الْخُلُقِ وَالْإِثْمُ ما حَاكَ في صَدْرِكَ وَكَرِهْتَ أَنْ يَطَّلِعَ عليه الناس

Al-Nawwas ibn Sim‘an al-Ansari (rta) said: “I asked God’s Messenger (sws) about virtue and vice. He replied: “Virtue is good conduct and vice is what pinches your heart and you would not like people to know about it.”[1]
