Sayings of the Prophet

mosque

A perfect Muslim is one from whose tongue and hands mankind is safe,

and a true emigrant [muhajir] is one who flees from what God has forbidden.

The messenger of God said to me (Anas),

Son, if you are able, keep your heart from morning till night and from night till morning

free from malice towards anyone;

then he said, Oh! My son, this is one of my laws, and he who loves my laws loves me.

Whoever believes in one God and the hereafter,

should speak what is good or remain silent.

That person is nearest to God, who pardons,

when he has someone in his power, one who would have injured him.

It is unworthy of a Mu’min [a person with faith] to injure people’s reputations;

and it is unworthy to curse any one;

and it is unworthy to abuse any one;

and it is unworthy of a Mu’min to talk arrogantly.

All Muslims are like one foundation,

some parts strengthening others;

in such a way they must support each other.

*Khizr

The exercise of religious duties

will not atone for the fault of an abusive tongue.

A person cannot be a Muslim till his heart and tongue are so.

tasbih

Certainly, people will follow you, and certainly people will come to you

from all quarters of the earth to understand religion;

when they come to you, guide them toward goodness.

Allah will say on the Day of Judgment, ‘Children of Adam, I was sick but you did not visit Me.’

famineAbu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah said:

Allah will say on the Day of Judgment, ‘Children of Adam, I was sick but you did not visit Me.’

‘My Rabbana, How could I visit You when You are the Sustainer of the Worlds?’

‘Did you not know that one of My servants was sick and you didn’t visit him? If you had visited him you would have found Me there.’

Then Allah will say, ‘Children of Adam, I needed food but you did not feed Me.’

‘My Rabbana, How could I feed You when You are the Sustainer of the Worlds?’

‘Did you not know that one of My servants was hungry but you did not feed him? If you had fed him you would have found its reward with Me.’

‘Children of Adam, I was thirsty, but you did not give Me something to drink.’

‘My Rabbana, How could I give a drink when You are the Sustainer of the Worlds?’

‘Did you not know that one of My servants was thirsty but you did not give him a drink? If you had given him a drink, you would have found its reward with Me.’ (Al-Bukhari)

the Quran on ridicule….

Aside

Image

O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule another people;

perhaps they may be better than them;

nor let women ridicule other women;

perhaps they may be better than them.

And do not insult one another and do not call each other by offensive nicknames.

Wretched is the name of disobedience after one’s faith.

And whoever does not repent – then it is those who are the wrongdoers.

(Quran 49:11)

kindness to Allah’s creatures…

Image

The beloved Prophet of God said,

“Those who are kind and considerate to Allah’s creatures,

Allah bestows His kindness and affection on them.

Show kindness to the creatures on the earth so that Allah may be kind to you.”

(Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)

the good doers…

 

Image

Race each other to forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden as wide as the heavens and the earth,

prepared for the people who have taqwa:those who give in times of both ease and hardship, 

those who control their rage and pardon other people — Allah loves the good-doers. 

(Quran 3:133-134)
