The word adab is not fully translatable from Arabic to English. It encompasses all the good things a Muslim must do. Adab linguistically means to invite people for food. Adab hence includes all that is good; every noble characteristic, habit, or trait that is included within the scope of adab.
Children acquire adab from their parents, students from their teachers, the young from the elders. We may have much knowledge but lack adab and we may have much adab but lack knowledge; but it is adab that holds the greater value and importance.
This highlights that knowledge alone is insufficient to build a sound and balanced Islamic personality. So, vast amounts of knowledge and severe lack in adab, means a person is little more than a donkey laden with books. What use are the books to that donkey without being able to read? Similarly, what use is knowledge to a Muslim, without the practical mannerisms and etiquettes that really define us as Muslims?
Traditionally, adab was not taught but acquired and embodied between interactions between people. This has such importance that we learn by what we see, whether that is good or bad, hence it is essential and somewhat detrimental that we teach only that which is good, as the bad habits are perhaps the easier to acquire. Indeed the deen of Islam is itself manners, where anyone that surpasses you in manners, is better than you in deen Ibn al-Qayyim.
For example: 1. Sahih al-Bukhari: The book of manners 3. Sahih Muslim: The book of dutifulness, ties of kinship and manners. Sunan Abi Dawud: The book of manners 5. Sunan at Tirmidhi: The book of manners, and the book of dutifulness and ties of kinship. Sunan Ibn Majah: Chapters on Manners.
