Hadith on Virtues: Which prayer, charity, and faith is best?

‘Umayr ibn Qatadah reported: A man said, “O Messenger of Allah, which prayer is best?” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “One finished with a long supplication.” The man said, “Which charity is best?” The Prophet said, “Great effort with little means.” The man said, “Which believers are most complete?” The Prophet said, “Those with the best character.”

عَنْ عمير بن قتادة أَنَّ رَجُلا قَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَيُّ الصَّلاةِ أَفْضَلُ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ طُولُ الْقُنُوتِ قَالَ أَيُّ الصَّدَقَةِ أَفْضَلُ قَالَ جُهْدُ الْمُقِلِّ قَالَ أَيُّ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَكْمَلُ قَالَ أَحْسَنُهُمْ خُلُقًا
