Faith cements human personality. It plays a powerful and effective role as the bedrock of a healthy, balanced and responsible life. To understand how faith moulds human personality, and help us to adopt positive traits and avoid negative traits, is one of the most important challenges we face in our lives.

In this update we present the perspective of the Quran on this subject. We will see what are the positive personality traits and how can we develop them, and what are the negative personality traits and how can we avoid them.
