1. Respect and honour all human beings irrespective of their religion,  colour, race, sex, language, status, property, birth, profession/job and so on [17/70]

3. Choose best words to speak and say them in the best possible way [17/53, 2/83]
4. Do not shout. Speak politely keeping your voice low. [31/19]
5. Always speak the truth. Shun words that are deceitful and ostentatious [22/30]

6. Do not confound truth with falsehood [2/42]
7. Say with your mouth what is in your heart [3/167]
8. Speak in a civilized manner in a language that is recognized by the society and is commonly used [4/5]
9. When you voice an opinion, be just, even if it is against a relative [6/152]
10. Do not be a bragging boaster [31/18]

11. Do not talk, listen or do anything vain [23/3, 28/55]
12. Do not participate in any paltry. If you pass near a futile play, then pass by with dignity [25/72]
13. Do not verge upon any immodesty or lewdness whether surreptitious or overt [6/151].
14. If, unintentionally, any misconduct occurs by you, then correct yourself expeditiously [3/134].
15. Do not be contemptuous or arrogant with people [31/18]

19. Keep your gazes lowered devoid of any lecherous leers and salacious stares [24/30-31, 40/19].
20. If you do not have complete knowledge about  anything, better keep your mouth shut. You might think that speaking  about something without full knowledge is a trivial matter. But it might have grave consequences [24/15-16]

21. When you hear something  malicious about someone, keep a favorable view about him/her until you  attain full knowledge about the matter. Consider others innocent until  they are proven guilty with solid and truthful evidence [24/12-13]
22. Ascertain the truth of any news, lest you smite someone in ignorance and afterwards repent of what you did [49/6]
23. Do not follow blindly any information of which you have no direct  knowledge. (Using your faculties of perception and conception) you must  verify it for yourself. In the Court of your Lord, you will be held accountable for your hearing,  sight, and the faculty of reasoning [17/36].
24. Never think that you have reached the final stage of knowledge and nobody knows more  than yourself. Remember! Above everyone endowed with knowledge is  another endowed with more knowledge [12/76]. Even the Prophet [p.b.u.h]  was asked to keep praying, “O My sustainer! Advance me in knowledge.”  [20:114]
25. The believers are but a single Brotherhood. Live like members of one family, brothers and sisters unto one another [49/10].

27. Do not defame others [49/11]
28. Do not insult others by nicknames [49/11]
29. Avoid suspicion and guesswork. Suspicion and guesswork might deplete your communal energy [49/12]
30. Spy not upon one another [49/12]
