Islamic Quotes-1

“You cannot taste the sweetness of worship until you place between you and your desires a wall made out of steel.” – Bishr Ibn al-Harith

“The believer sees his sins as if he is sitting at the foot of a mountain fearing that it might fall on him, while the sinner (fâjir) sees his sins as a fly that lands on his nose, he just waves it away”. [‘Abdullah b. Mas’ûd]

Whoever reflects will find that the noblest and most dignified person of every gathering is the one who is most silent, because silence beautifies the scholar and conceals the faults of the ignorant. — Ibrâhîm an-Nakhâ‘î

Acknowledging your shortcomings is one of the first steps in disciplining yourself. Whoever acknowledges that he has shortcomings has started on the path to self-discipline. It is a sign of Allah’s care when a person tries to change himself and develop. — Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Perhaps a great deed is belittled by an intention. And perhaps a small deed, by sincere intention, is made great. — Abdullah ibn Mubarak

If you can’t say “bismillah” (out loud or inside) before an action, you most likely shouldn’t be doing it anyway. — Abdulbary Yahya

The Mother is a school, who, if you raise properly, then you are raising an entire generation of noble descent. The Mother is a beautiful garden, who, when properly preserved with hayaa’, produces many flowers. The Mother is the teacher of teachers, whose many important actions fill the horizon. — Hafith Ibrahim

What you love to have with you in the Hereafter, you should advance today, and what you hate to have with you, you should abandon today. — Salman ibn Dinar

The life of this world is made up of three days: yesterday, which has gone with all that was done; tomorrow, which you may never reach; but today is for you, so do what you should do today. — Hasan Al-Basri

When the person reads it with reflection and he comes across an ayah that he is in need of for curing his heart, he repeats it, even if he does so a hundred times or the whole night. Hence, to recite a single āyah of the Qur’an with contemplation and reflection is better than reciting the Qur’an to completion without any contemplation. It is also more beneficial for the heart and more conducive to attaining iman and tasting the sweetness of the Qur’an. — Ibn al-Qayyim
