  • Solid Character - متين الخلق (Matinul Khuluq)
  • Strong physical strength - قوي الجسم (Qowiyyul jismi)

  • Independent or self-sustained - قادر علي الكسبت (Qodirun ‘alal Kasbi)
  • Useful for others - نافع لغيره (Naafi’un Lighoirihi)

Great belief or confidence - سليم العقيدة (Salimul 'Aqidah)
Having a great confidence towards Allah is a must for every Muslim. By having great confidence or belief, we will create a strong bond with Allah and with this bond it is not easy for us to take wrong turn in which road we are gonna take because we know Allah is the best organizer for us. 
“Truly, my prayer and my service of sacrifice, my life and my death, are (all) for Allah, the Cherisher of the Worlds" (Surah Al An'am 6: 162)
It is important to have a great belief towards Allah as Rasulullah S.A.W., himself taught his friends and Muslims about having a great belief ('aqidah), faith (iman) and tauhid as his prime objectives in early years of da'wah.

True worship - صحيح العبادة (Sohihul 'ibadah)
Rasulullah S.A.W. once said, "You perform your salat as you see how I perform my salat". This is a command from Rasulullah S.A.W. that all muslims must follow because in performing our salat or good deeds or worship towards Allah we must follow his actions (sunnah) and any add on or deduction on how to perform it is unquestionable and we should refer our scholars (ulama') for confirmation. 

Solid Character - متين الخلق (Matinul Khuluq)
Solid and noble character is a must for every Muslim either when having interaction with Allah or any living creature on this mother earth. By having a noble character, with Allah permission we will have a happy life on dunya and also afterlife. That is why Rasulullah S.A.W. was sent to us to improve our character as we follow his character during his life time. Even Allah praised his character in Al-Quran:
"And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character" (Al-Qalam 68: 4)

Strong physical strength - قوي الجسم (Qowiyyul jismi)
Strong physical strength means that a Muslim can perform at his optimal level especially in performing Islamic teachings or practices such as prayer, fasting, zakat and hajjis also during the war for Allah, tarbiyyah and other forms of struggle. Therefore, having a healthy body is a priority for every Muslim because prevention against any diseases is far more important than treatment. However, when a Muslim is sick it is somehow a reminder for that person to show his gratefulness as he was healthy before and it is a direct payment for his small sins in dunya.
Prophet Muhammadonce said, “I love a strong mu’min more than weak believers” (Narrated by Muslim). 

Broaden knowledge or intellectual thought - مثقف الفكر (Mutssoqoful Fikri)
Intellectual thinking is one of the most important personal side for a Muslim because of the nature of the Messenger is fathonah (smart) and the Qur’an reveals many signs or verses which stimulating the brain to think such as:
They ask thee concerning wine and gambling. Say: “In them is great sin, and some profit, for men; but the sin is greater than the profit.” They ask thee how much they are to spend; Say: “What is beyond your needs.” Thus doth Allah Make clear to you His Signs: In order that ye may consider" (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:219)
Therefore a Muslim must has a great vision of Islam and extensive knowledge. Can we imagine the outcome of an act without thinking or mature consideration first. Hence, Allah questioned us about the level of intellectuality in the Qur'an:
“...Say: “Are those equal, those who know and those who do not know? It is those who are endued with understanding that receive admonition" (Surah Az-Zumar 39:9)

Striving against lust - مجاهدة لنفسه (Mujahadatun Linafsihi)
Every human has a tendency to the good and bad. In implementing a tendency to the good and avoiding evil or fighting against lust, one must have great passion and enthusiasm. Also a submission towards the teachings of Islam is a must in fighting against lust and  Rasulullah S.A.W. once said, "No religion any of you until he makes his desire to follow what I bring (teachings of Islam)" (Narrated Hakim)

Keen on the time - حريص علي الوقت (Harishun ‘ala Waqtihi)
Time itself has a great position from Allah and His Messenger. There are many times when Allah SWT was making oath in the Qur'an in the name of the time like wal Fajri, wad dhuha, wal asri, wallaili and so on. Allah SWT gives enough and equal time for everyone."It is better to lose a watch than loss of time". Time is a fleeting and will never return again. Therefore, every Muslim must benefits the use of time by doing something good, so that time can pass after being used effectively without in vain.
Prophet S.A.W, taught us to take advantage of five things before five things to come which are the time of life before death, young before old, healthy before illness, unoccupied before busy and rich before poor.

Organized in his work - منظم في شؤنة (Munazhzhamun fi Syu’unihi)
Being organized is a must in the heart of Muslims. Such as in Islamic law, any work associated with ubudiyah problems and transaction must be completed or implemented well in care. When a business is handled together, a good co-operation is needed as Allah  will love that person because the way he handled it. In other words, it must be done professionally, so anything to be done; professionalism is always a prime criteria. Earnest, enthusiastic, willing to sacrifice, great intellectual or knowledge and a passion of continuity are also among the criteria needed in performing duties.

Independent or self-sustained - قادر علي الكسبت (Qodirun ‘alal Kasbi)
Self-sustained ability or referred as independent is other feature that should be on a Muslim. Being able to defend the truth and establish a new fight especially in economic terms is another example of self-reliance and survival. We cannot assume a Muslim must be a poor person because Muslims are encourage to gain wealth so that they can perform Hajj and Umrah, organize charities, give donations, involve in voluntary, and prepare a good future for next generation of Muslim. To get an earning or a way of living is a high priority for Muslims as it was stated many times in the Qur’an and Hadith. In terms of Muslim survival, it is required to have plenty of good membership from professionals, scholars, businessmen and so on. This is because by having great minds and vast resources in terms of 'rezeki' or financial contributor, Islam can rise again to be leader of the world once again. Therefore to reach there willingness to have great skills and competency among the best in the world is a must for every Muslim.

Useful for others - نافع لغيره (Naafi’un Lighoirihi)
Wherever a Muslim go, people will remember him as a person who contributes more within a society and acknowledge his existence and gladly to welcome him back whenever he is  needed also by being a Muslim, that person eventually risen up the name of Islam because of his usefulness. This means that every Muslim should always think, prepare himself and able to do extraordinary when given a task and gives much beneficial to the society, family, among friends and Islam. Rasulullah S.A.W. said, "The best man is the most beneficial for others" (Narrated Jabir Qudhy). 

Salam and enjoy!
