Sayings of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

  • There are three roots to Iman (Faith): not to trouble him who shall say 'there is no deity but God;' not to think him an unbeliever on account of one fault; and not to discard him for one crime.
  • When asked to mention one of the most excellent parts of Iman (Faith) Muhammad said, "To love him who loveth God, and hate him who hateth God, and to keep your tongue employed in repeating the name of God." What else? He said, "To do unto all men as you would wish to have done unto you, and to reject for others what you would reject for yourself."
  • Speak to men according to their mental capacities, for if you speak all things to all men, some cannot understand you, and so fall into errors.
  • Verily your deeds will be brought back to you, as if you yourself were the creator of your own punishment.
  • Feed the hungry and visit the sick, and free the captive, if he be unjustly confined. Assist any person oppressed, whether Muslim or non-Muslim.
  • Do a good deed for every bad deed that it may blot out the latter.
  • All Muslims are as one body. If a man complaineth of a pain in his head, his whole body complaineth; and if his eye complaineth, his whole body complaineth.
  • Assist your Muslim brother, whether he be an oppressor or oppressed. "But how shall we do it when he is an oppressor?" enquired a companion. Muhammad replied, "Assisting an oppressor consists in forbidding and witholding him from oppression."
  • Ye will not enter Paradise until ye have faith, and ye will not complete your faith until ye love one another.
  • Verily, each of you is a mirror to his brother: then if he seeth a vice in his brother he must tell him to get rid of it.
