    Assalam alaykum,
    Adab or Good Manners combines 2 qualities:- Khayr (goodness) and doing what is preferred in action and speech. In this regards, Sayyadi Yusuf Ibn al-Husayn al-Marazi, may Allah be pleased with him, said:--

    "By Adab you understand knowledge, and knowledge corrects actions; with
    action you obtain hikmah (wisdom), and with hikmah you obtain Zuhd; with
    zuhd you leave the world, and by leaving the world you desire the akhirah;
    with the desire for the akhirah you obtain the pleasure of Allah, the Mighty
    and Majestic."

    May we be blessed with positive Adab.. ameen.
