Islam:- Sayings & Words

Background

For those who love religion, one of our favorite tools towards keeping that love is seeing the poetry in it.

Sayings

 

Choosing

  1. There is no compulsion in religion
    • Al-Baqara 256

Finding God

  1. And He found you lost and guided [you]. And He found you poor and made [you] self-sufficient.
    [Quran 93:7-8]

 

Love & Relationship

 

  1. The most perfect believer in faith is the one whose character is finest and who is kindest to his wife.
    [Prophet Muhammad PBUH].
  2. “And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens with love like that. It lights up the sky.
    [Hafez]
  3. Verily, Allah will say on the Day of Resurrection: Where are those who love each other for the sake of my glory? Today, I will shelter them in my shade on a day when there is no shade but mine.
    [Prophet Muhammad PBUH, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2566].
  4. The man dreams of a perfect woman and the woman dreams of a perfect man and they don’t know that Allah created them to perfect one another.
    [Ahmad AlShugairi].
  5. Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:-
    Once you begin to see everything beautiful as only a reflection of God’s beauty, you will learn to love in the right way.
    [Yasmin Mogahed].
  6. Forbidden love stories end at marriage, while true halal love stories begin at marriage and end with both entering paradise.
    [Abdulbary Yaha Bari].

 

Good Deeds & Charity

Words

  1. And speak to people good words.
    [Quran 2:83].

Good Deed

  1. Never underestimate a good deed, you don’t know which Hasanah will be your ticket to Jannah.

 

Charity

  1. Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace, and blessings be upon him, said,
    “Allah said: Spend in charity, O son of Adam, and I will spend on you.”
    [Hadith].

 

Helpmate

  1. Whoever relieves the hardship of a believer in this world, Alla will relieve them on the day of resurrection.
  2. Whoever relieves a believer’s distress of the distressful aspects of this world, Allah will rescue him from a difficulty of the difficulties of the Hereafter. Whoever alleviates [the situation of] one in dire straits who cannot repay his debt, Allah will alleviate his lot in both this world and in the Hereafter. Whoever conceals [the faults of] a Muslims, Allah will conceal [his faults] in this life and the Hereafter. Allah is helping the servant as long as the servant is helping his brother. Whoever follows a path in order to seek knowledge thereby, Allah will make easy for him, due to it, a path to Paradise. No people gather together in a house of the houses of Allah, reciting the Book of Allah and studying it among themselves, except that tranquility descended upon them, mercy covers them, the angels surround them and Allah makes mention of them to those in His presence. Whoever is slowed by his deeds will not be hastened forward by his lineage.

Names

Blessing

    • Etymologically, the name is from the consonantal root B-R-K, meaning “knee”, and verbally “to prostrate oneself”, and hence “to receive blessing”.
  2. Barakah
    • The feminine noun barakah (بركة) means “blessing”. In Islam, and specifically within the Sufi tradition, it has a meaning similar to “charisma”.
    • The Hebrew cognate is berakhah.
