    Beautiful Quotes, Proverbs, Sayings (OP)


    I'm not sure if there's a place here to share beautiful quotes. But there are so many of them. I'd like to add in a quote or saying on a daily basis.

    Here's my first:

    A man slips more by his tongue than by his foot!

    Allah SWT never burdens a soul more than it can bear.

    Allah SWT only tests those that he loves.

    All humans are dead except those who have knowledge; and all those
    who have knowledge are asleep, except those who do good deeds; and
    those who do good deeds are deceived, except those who are sincere;
    and those who are sincere are always in a state of worry.

    Re: Beautiful Quotes, Proverbs, Sayings

    What can my enemies do to me? My paradise is in my heart, it is with
    me wherever I go. To imprison me is to provide me with seclusion. To
    send me into exile is to send me away in the Path of Allah. And to kill
    me is to make me a martyr.
    - Ibn Taymeeyah

    You are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment. (O soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are.

    Re: Beautiful Quotes, Proverbs, Sayings

    Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only
    through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition
    inspired, and success achieved.”
    By Helen Keller

    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.(macbeth)
    Not really a saying but I like it.

    "He who boasts of his ancestry is praising the deeds of another."

    A man asked the Prophet , "What sort of deeds or (what qualities of) Islam are good?" The Prophet replied, 'To feed (the poor) and greet those whom you know and those whom you do not Know (See Hadith No. 27).

    A camel can tolerate a heavy load, but not a crooked rope. Somali proverb

    My favourite hadith:
    On the authority of Abdullah bin Abbas, who said : One day I was behind the prophet and he said to me: “Young man, I shall teach you some words [of advice] : Be mindful of Allah, and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, ask of Allah; if you seek help, seek help of Allah. Know that if the Nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything, it would benefit you only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with anything, they would harm you only with something Allah had already prescribed for you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried.”

    narrated by Tirmithi

    Because once upon a time, we were best friends. And, yes, there's been a lot of bad stuff in between. But none of that matters right now, okay? You need me, I'm there. Any time, any place, anywhere.

    Re: Beautiful Quotes, Proverbs, Sayings

    I found this Touching

    "Muhammad, the inspired man who founded Islam, was born about A.D. 570 into an Arabian tribe that worshipped idols. Orphaned at birth, he was always particularly solicitous of the poor and needy, the widow and the orphan, the slave and the downtrodden. At twenty, he was already a successful businessman, and soon became director of camel caravans for a wealthy widow. When he reached twenty-five, his employer, recognizing his merit, proposed marriage. Even though she was fifteen years older, he married her, and as long as she lived, remained a devoted husband.

    "Like almost every major prophet before him, Muhammad fought shy of serving as the transmitter of God's word, sensing his own inadequacy. But the angel commanded "Read." So far as we know, Muhammad was unable to read or write, but he began to dictate those inspired words which would soon revolutionize a large segment of the earth: "There is one God."

    "In all things Muhammad was profoundly practical. When his beloved son Ibrahim died, an eclipse occurred, and rumours of God's personal condolence quickly arose. Whereupon Muhammad is said to have announced, "An eclipse is a phenomenon of nature. It is foolish to attribute such things to the death or birth of a human being." At Muhammad's own death an attempt was made to deify him, but the man who was to become his administrative successor killed the hysteria with one of the noblest speeches in religious history: "If there are any among you who worshipped Muhammad, he is dead. But if it is God you worshipped, He lives forever."
    James A. Michener, "ISLAM: THE MISUNDERSTOOD RELIGION," in READER'S DIGEST (American edition), May 1955, pp. 68-70.

    Re: Beautiful Quotes, Proverbs, Sayings

    It is related that Abu 'Uthman was once riding in the street when a pot
    of ashes was thrown down upon him. He dismounted, and prostrated
    himself to God in gratitude, and then brushed the ashes from his
    clothes without saying a word. 'Shall you not rebuke them?' he was
    asked, but he replied, 'A man who deserves hellfire but receives only
    ashes cannot fairly be angry'.
    [Signs of good character]

    SubhanAllah.
