Quoted from Abu Bakr (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "He who enters the grave without provisions (good deeds), has, as if, he started swimming across the ocean without a vessel."


Quoted from 'Omar (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "Worldy honour is derived from riches and the honour of the Hereafter is derived from the performance of good deeds."


Quoted from Uthman (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "Absorption in worldly affairs breeds darkness in the heart, and absorption in the affairs of the next world enkindles light in the heart."


Quoted from 'Ali (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "He who seeks knowledge of religion (Islaam), Paradise seeks him, and he who seeks deeds of vice, Hell seeks him."










Quoted from Abu Bakr (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "There are three things that cannot be acquired by means of three other things: riches by means of desire, youth by means of khejab (dye of beard) and health by means of medicine."


Quoted from 'Umar (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "To maintain nice relations with the people is half of intelligence, nice questioning is half of knowledge, and nice domestic arrangements is half of the management of livelihood."


Quoted from Uthman (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "Allaah the Exalted loves him who forgoes worldly life, the Angels love him who rejects the vices, and the Muslims love him who gives up greediness in respect of the Muslims."


Quoted from 'Ali (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "Be a good man to Allaah and a bad man to yourself (desires); and be one of the commoners among the people."


Quoted from 'Ali (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "Give alms to anybody you like and become his master, beg from anybody you wish and become his captive, and you may remain self-dependent if you like so that you may be an equal to others."


Quoted from Ibn Mas'ood (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "A great many people proceed towards evils on account of receipt of blessings, many people are ruined by praise, and many a man is deceived by Allah's protection (in concealing vices)."


Quoted from Ibn Mas'ood (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "Perform well those (things) that have been made compulsory for you, you will then be amongst the distinguished devotees. Refrain from those (things) that have been prohibited, you will then be amongst the distinguished pious men. Be content with those things that are allotted to you by Allaah, you will then be amongst the richest."


Quoted from Ibn 'Abbaas (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): He was asked, "Which of the days is the best?" He replied, "The day of congregation (Jumu'ah)." He was again asked, "Which of the months is the best?" He replied, "The month of Ramadaan." He was again asked, "Which of the deeds is the best?" He replied, "To punctually establish the five daily prayers."


Quoted from Al-Hasan Al-Basri : "He who has no manners has no knowledge; he who has no patience has no Deen, and he who has no piety has no nearness to Allaah for him."


Quoted from Ibraheem An-Nakha'ee: "Those who were destroyed in the past, were surely destroyed because of three bad habits: Wasting time in useless talks, excessive eating, and excessive sleeping."


Quoted from Maalik ibn Dinar: "Rectify three things by three other things till you become amongst the faithful (mu`min): Pride by modesty, greed by contentment in a little, and envy by listening to advice."

Quoted from 'Omar(radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "There are four types of oceans. Passions are the ocean of sins, the self (nafs) is the ocean of lust, death is the ocean of life, and the grave is the ocean of distress."


Quoted from 'Omar (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "There are four things with which Allaah is pleased - the external side of them is blessing and the inner side of them is compulsion. It is a blessing to associate with the pious servants (salihoon) of Allaah, but it is a compulsion to follow them (in deeds). It is a blessing to recite the Qur`aan, but it is compulsory to act according to it. It is a blessing to visit a grave, but it is a compulsion to make provisions for it. It is a blessing to take care of the sick, but it is a compulsion to take a lesson from it."


Quoted from 'Omar (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "By Allaah! Whenever I endure any adversity I gain four blessings of Allaah in exchange. The first of them is, when the adversity is not caused by my sin (virtue is earned). The second, when the adversity is not greater than my sin (virtue is earned). The third, when I am not deprived of contentment (virtue is earned). And the fourth, I hope for virtues thereby."


Quoted from Uthman (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "I have got the taste of worship ('ibadat) in four things - firstly in the discharge of the compulsory duties (faraid) prescribed by Allaah; secondly in abstaining from the things forbidden (haram) by Allaah; thirdly in enjoining performance of good deeds in the hope of earning virtues; and fourthly in prohibiting evil deeds in fear of the curse of Allaah."


Quoted from 'Ali (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "Whoever desires Paradise, proceeds towards goodness; whoever fears Hell, refrains from the impulses of passions; whoever believes firmly in death, detests wordly life; and whoever recognises the worldly life, the trials and tribulations (of life) become slight for him."


Quoted from 'Ali (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "Both religion and the world will exist so long as four things continue to exist - so long as the rich will not be miserly in spending in the path of Allaah; so long as the learned will perform deeds in accordance with the knowledge acquired; so long as the ignorant will not display obstinacy and pride in what they do not know; and so long as the poor will not sell their Hereafter in exchange for the worldly life."


Quoted from 'Ali (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "Four things are exceedingly difficult - to forgive while angry, to give alms during want, to abstain from sins in solitude, and to speak the truth before the person from whom may come fear or favour."


Quoted from Ibn Mas'ood (radhiAllaahu 'anhu): "Four things produce darkness in the heart - to take excess meals recklessly, to bear company with the oppressors, to forget past sins, and to keep lofty desire. And four things produce light in the heart - to keep the stomach hungry for fear of sins, to keep company with the righteous (salihoon), to remember the past sins, and to curtail desires."


Quoted from 'Abdullaah ibn al-Mubaarak (rahimahullaah) - amongst the four essential advices derived from ahadeeth: "DO NOT ACQUIRE KNOWLEDGE THAT DOES NOT BENEFIT YOU."
