    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!

    O Allah! How can I ask you for any favours knowing how disobedient I
    am, but how can I not ask you for anything knowing how Generous You
    are?

    Re: Beautiful Quotes, Proverbs, Sayings

    Every utterance that comes forth does so with the vestment of the heart
    from which it emerged.
    - Hikam of Ibn Ibn Ata'illah
    [Commentry] It is said, that the tongue translates what is in the heart.
    If the heart is confused or sick, so are the utterances. If the heart is
    wholesome and pure, then the utterances are real and appropriate. If
    you contemplate deeply what is being said, you will come to know the
    state of the speaker and the extent of his connectedness to the Truth
    and his position with Allah.

    A'isha (radiAllahu anha) narrated two verses (couplets)
    'if the friends of Zulaikha could see the blessed face of Rasulullah
    (salAllahu alayhi wasalam),
    they would have cut their hearts instead of their hands'
    [Sham'il at-Tirmidhi]

    Forrgive him who wrongs you;
    join him who cuts you off;
    do good to him who does evil to you;
    and speak the truth even if it be against yourself.

    If asked whether you love God, say nothing. This is because if you say,
    'I do not love God,'you are an unbeliever. If, on the other hand, you
    say, 'I do love God,' your actions contradict you.

    Re: Beautiful Quotes, Proverbs, Sayings

    “If you’re in prayer, take care of your heart; if you’re eating, take care of your throat; if you’re in another man’s house, take care of you eyes; if you are among people take care of your tongue.

    Remember two matters and forget two matters: remember Allah and death, forget any good that you have done to another and any evil that was done to you by another”

    From the wise saying of Luqman

    Ibn Qudamah (rahimahumullah) once said that when one slanders you, you should be thankful that he spoke something about you which was untrue, for there are many blemishes on your account which are true which Allah hid from the world.

    “Yearning for Allah and His meeting is like the gentle breeze blowing upon the heart, extinguishing the blaze of the Dunya. Whosoever caused his heart to settle with his Lord shall be in a state, calm and tranquility, and whosoever sent it amongst the people shall be disturbed and excessively perturbed.” - Ibn al Qayyim al Jawziyyah

    Re: Beautiful Quotes, Proverbs, Sayings

    “A sign that Allah (SWT) despises you is when you find yourself wasting your time with trivial matters; in this way you miss your chance of going to heaven. And a sign that Allah (SWT) likes you is when you find yourself fulfilling more duties than you have time for.” A saying goes, ‘The devil makes work for idle thumbs.’ If you want to know whether Allah (SWT) is pleased with you, then think: Are you busy or idle?"
