G

حَدَّثَنِىْ جِبْرِيْلُ قالَ؛ يَقُوْلُ اللَّهُ تَعَالى: »لا إلهَ إلاّ اللَّهُ حِصْنِي، فَمَنْ دَخلَهُ أمِنَ مِنْ عَذابِي.

Gabriel addressed me, saying: "The Exalted God says, `There is no god but Allah is My fort. Whoever enters it, will be safe against My punishment."

أتَاني جِبْرَئِيْلُ فَقَالَ: بَشِّرْ أُمَّتَكَ أَنَّهُ مَنْ مَاتَ لا يُشْرِكُ بِاللَّهِ شَيْئَاً دَخَلَ الجَنَّةَ، قُلْتُ: يَا جِبْرَئِيْلُ وَاِنْ سَرَقَ وَاِنْ زَنَا، قَالَ: نَعَمْ، قُلْتُ وَاِنْ سَرَقَ وَاِنْ زَنَا، قَالَ: نَعَمْ، قُلْتُ وَاِنْ سَرَقَ وَاِنْ زَنَا، قَالَ: نَعَمْ، وَاِنْ شَرِبَ الخَمْرَ.

Gabriel came to me and said: "Give your people good tidings that whoever does not adopt a partner for God, will enter Paradise after death". I said: "What if he has committed theft or adultery," and I repeated it thrice, but the answer was in the positive and Gabriel added, "even if he has drunk wine".

السَّخَاءُ شَجَرَةٌ مِنْ أشْجَارِ الجَنَّةِ أغْصَانُهَا مُتَدَلِّيَاتٌ في الدُّنْيا، فَمَنْ أخَذَ بِغُصْنٍ مِنْهَا قَادَهُ ذلِكَ الغُصْنُ إلَى الجَنَّةِ، وَالبُخْلُ شَجَرَةٌ مِنْ أشْجَارِ النَّارِ أغْصَانُهَا مُتَدَلِّيَاتٌ في الدُّنْيا، فَمَنْ أخَذَ بِغُصْنٍ مِنْهَا قَادَهُ ذلِكَ الغُصْنُ إلَى النَّارِ.

Generosity is a heavenly tree with branches hanging over the earth, leading to Paradise whoever clings to one of them, and miserliness is a hellish tree with branches hanging over the earth, directing to Fire whoever touches one/of them.

السَّخَاءُ خُلُقُ اللَّهِ الأعْظَمِ.

Generosity is God's outstanding attribute.

عَلَيْكُمْ بِالحُزْنِ فَاِنَّهُ مِصْبَاحُ القَلْبِ، أجِيْعُوْا أنْفُسَكُمْ وَأظْمِئُوْهَا.

Get accustomed to grief, for it's the light of man's heart. Keep yourself hungry and thirsty.

تَناكَحُوْا تَكْثُرُوْا؛ فَاِنِّي أُبَاهِي بِكُمُ الأُمَمَ يَوْمَ القِيامَةِ.

Get married and increase in number, for I will pride myself in you over other nations in the Day of Judgement.

تَزَوَّجُوْا وَلا تُطَلِّقُوْا؛ فَاِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُحِبُّ الذَّوَّاقِيْنَ وَلَا الذَّوَّاقَاتِ.

Get married, but do not divorce your wives, for God surely detests men and women who marry a lot.

تَزَوَّجُوْا فَاِنِّي مُكاثِرٌ بِكُمْ الأُمَمَ؛ وَلا تَكُوْنُوْا كَرُهْبَانِيَّةِ النَّصَارَى.

Get married, for I pride myself over other nations for the largeness of your population, and do not follow the path of Christian monks.

تَزَوَّجُوْا النِّسَاءَ؛ فَاِنَّهُنَّ يَأْتِيْنَ بِالمَالِ.

Get married, for women bring you wealth.

الهَدِيَّةُ رِزْقٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ؛ فَمَنْ أُهْدِىَ إلَيْهِ شَيْ‏ءٌ فَلْيَقْبَلْهُ.

Gifts are sustenance from God; and so, whoever is offered a gift should accept it.

الهَدِيَّةُ تُعْوِرُ عَيْنَ الحَكِيْمِ.

Gifts blind men of wisdom.

الهَدِيَّةُ تَذْهَبُ بِالسَّمْعِ وَالبَصَرِ وَالقَلْبِ.

Gifts impair ears, eyes and hearts.

أَمْرُ النِّسَاءِ اِلى آبَائِهِنَّ وَرِضَاهُنَّ السُّكُوتُ

Girls' consent (in marriage) should be sought from their fathers, and silence is their consent.

تَصَدَّقُوْا فَسَيَأْتِي عَلَيْكُمْ زَمَانٌ يَمْشِي الرَّجُلُ بِصَدَقَتِهِ فَيَقُولُ الَّذِي يَأْتِيْهِ بِهَا: لَوْ جِئْتَ بِها بِالأَمْسِ لَقَبِلْتُهَا فَأَمَّا الآنَ فَلا حَاجَةَ لِي فيها، فَلا يَجِدُ مَنْ يَقْبَلُهَا.

Give alms, for a time may come to pass when man manages to give something on charity, but the one who is supposed to get it will say, "I would have accepted it if you had brought it yesterday. Today, I am no more in need of it." and thus he will find nobody to accept it.

تَصَدَّقُوْا؛ فَاِنَّ الصَّدَقَةَ فَكاكُكُمْ مِنَ النَّارِ.

Give alms, for it surely releases you from the Fire.

تَصَدَّقُوْا وَلَوْ بِتَمْرَةٍ فَاِنَّهَا تَسُدُّ مِنَ الجَائِعِ وَتُطْفِى‏ءُ الخَطِيْئَةَ كَما يُطْفِى‏ءُ المَاءُ النَّارَ.

Give alms, though a date it might be, for it drops one's hunger and puts out (the fire of) sin just as water makes fire extinguished.

لِيُبْشِرْ فُقَرَاءَ المُؤْمِنِيْنَ بِالْفَرَاغِ يَوْمَ القِيَامَةِ قَبْلَ الأغْنِيَاءِ بِمِقْدَارِ خَمْسِمَائَةِ عَامٍ، هؤُلآءِ في الجَنَّةِ يَنْعَمُونَ، وَهؤُلآءِ يُحَاسَبُونَ.

Give good tidings to the poor believers that in the Day of Judgment, they will get rid (of the trial) five hundred years earlier than the rich- the former residing in Paradise, benefiting from God's blessings, and the latter being called to account.

بَشِّرِ المَشَّآئِيْنَ في ظُلَمِ اللَّيْلِ اِلَى المَسَاجِدِ بِالنُّورِ التَّامِ يَوْمَ القِيامَةِ.

Give good tidings to those who move towards mosques in the darkness of night that theirs will be full brightness in the Day of Judgement.

لا تَرُدُّوا السَّائِلَ وَلَوْ بِشِقِّ تَمْرَةٍ.

Give something to a beggar, even if it is half a date (petty).

أَعْطِ السَّائِلَ وَلَوْ جَاءَكَ عَلى فَرَسٍ؛ وَأَعْطِ الاَجِيْرَ حَقَّهُ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَجِفَّ عَرَقُهُ.

Give something to those who beg you, though coming to you on horse back (though rich), and pay workers their wage before sweat is dried on their skin.

عَلَيْكَ بِاليَأْسِ مِمَّا في أيْدِي النَّاسِ، وَاِيَّاكَ وَالطَّمَعَ فَاِنَّهُ الفَقْرُ الحَاضِرُ.

Give up hope for what people have and avoid avarice, for it is immediate poverty.

مَا يُرِيْبُكَ إلى مَا لا يُرِيْبُكَ، فَاِنَّكَ لَنْ تَجِدَ فَقْدَ شَيْ‏ءٍ تَرَكْتَهُ للَّهِِ.

Give up the doubtful and grasp the undoubtful, for surely you will not feel the lack of what you have abandoned for the sake of God.

دَعْ مَا يُرِيْبُكَ إلى مَا لا يُرِيْبُكَ، فَمَنْ رَعى حَوْلَ الحِمَى يُوْشِكُ أنْ يَقَعَ فِيْهِ.

Give up the doubtful and grasp the undoubtful, for whoever grazes his cattle on the whereabouts of a forbidden pasture, might unwantedly find himself on it.

دَعْ مَا يُرِيْبُكَ إلى مَا لا يُرِيْبُكَ، فَاِنَّ الصِّدْقَ يُنْجِي.

Give up the doubtful and grasp the undoubtful. Verily, truthfulness entails salvation.

الرَّاشِي وَالمُرْتَشِي فِي النَّارِ.

Givers and receivers of bribe are both subject to the fire (of Hell).

لَأَنْ اُطْعِمَ أخَاً في اللَّهِ مُسْلِمَاً لُقْمَةً أحَبُّ اِلَيَّ مِنْ أنْ أتَصَدَّقَ بِدِرْهَمٍ، وَلَأَنْ أُعْطِي أخَاً في اللَّهِ مُسْلِمَاً دِرْهَمَاً أحَبُّ اِلىَّ مِنْ أنْ أتَصَدَّقَ بِعَشْرَةٍ، وَلَأَنْ أُعْطِيْهِ عَشَرَةً أَحَبُّ اِلَىَّ مِنْ أنْ أُعْتِقَ رَقَبَةً.

Giving a morsel of food to a Muslim brother for God's sake is more favorite to me than giving a Dirham in charity, and giving a Dirham to a Muslim is more favorite to me than giving ten Dirhams in charity, and giving him ten Dirhams is more favorite to me than making a slave free.

الصَّدَقَةُ عَلى القَرابَةِ صَدَقَةٌ وَصِلَةٌ.

Giving alms to kins is alms- giving as well as strengthening ties of kinship.

الصَّدَقَاتُ بِالغَدَواتِ يَذْهَبْنَ بِالعَاهَاتِ.

Giving charity early in morning takes away all evils.

خَيْرُ أبْوَابِ البِرِّ الصَّدَقَةُ.

Giving charity is the best path to piety.

أَجِلُّوا اللَّهَ يَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ.

Glorify God to be forgiven by Him.

أَعِزَّ أَمْرَ اللَّهِ يُعِزُّكَ اللَّهُ.

Glorify what's divine, and God's glory will be thine.

البَطانَةُ تَقْسِي القَلْبَ.

Gluttony hardens man's heart.

مَنْ أكَلَ بِالْعِلْمِ طَمَسَ اللَّهُ عَلى وَجْهِهِ؛ وَرَدَّهُ عَلى عَقِبِهِ وَكَانَتِ النَّارُ أوْلَى بِهِ.

God changes (darkens) the visage of the one who earns his living through knowledge, disturbs his affairs, and makes Hell his appropriate abode.

خَلَقَ اللَّهُ يَحْيَى ابْنَ زَكَرِيَّا في بَطْنِ أُمِّهِ مُؤْمِنَاً، وَخَلَقَ فِرْعَوْنَ في بَطْنِ أُمِّهِ كافِرَاً.

God created John (son of Zechariah) a believer, and created Pharaoh an unbeliever in their mothers' wombs.

خَلَقَ اللَّهُ الخَلْقَ فَكَتَبَ آجَالَهُمْ وَأعْمَالَهُمْ وَأرْزاقَهُمْ.

God created the creatures and determined their fates, deeds, and sustenance.

جَعَلَ اللَّهُ الرَّحْمَةَ مِائَةَ جُزْءٍ؛ فَأَمْسَكَ عِنْدَهُ تِسْعَةً وَتِسْعِيْنَ جُزْءً؛ وَأَنْزَلَ في الأرْضِ جُزْءً واحِدًا؛ فَمِنْ ذلِكَ الجُزْءِ يَتَراحَمُ الخَلْقُ؛ حَتَّى تَرْفَعَ الفَرَسُ حافِرَها عَنْ وَلَدِها خَشْيَةَ أَنْ تُصِيْبَهُ.

God divided (His) Mercy into a hundred parts, keeping ninety- nine parts with Himself and letting one single part descend to the earth. It is through this very part that (His) creatures are Merciful to one another, to the extent that a horse lifts its hoof lest it should hurt its colts.

ما أعَزَّ اللَّهُ بِجَهْلٍ قَطُّ؛ وَلا أذَلَّ اللَّهُ بِحِلْمٍ قَطُّ.

God does not endear the ignorant, nor does He degrade the patient.

أَبى اللَّهُ أَنْ يَجْعَلَ لِقاتِلِ الْمُؤْمِنِ تَوْبَةً.

God does not forgive the killer of a believer, and accepts not his (her) repentance.

أَبَى اللَّهُ أَنْ يَقْبَلْ عَمَلَ صَاحِبِ بِدْعَةٍ حَتَّى يَدَعَ بِدْعَتَهُ.

God does not observe a heretic's deeds unless heabandons his (her) heresy.

لا يَنْبَغِي لذِي الوَجْهَينِ أنْ يَكُونَ أمِيْنَاً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ.

God gives chastity and abundance to the one who seeks them.

مَنْ قَدَّرَ رَزَقَهُ اللَّهُ، وَمَنْ بَذَّرَ حَرَمَهُ اللَّهُ.

God gives sustenance to the frugal and deprives it from the extravagant.

مَنْ أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِهِ خَيْرَاً رَزَقَهُ اللَّهُ خَلِيْلاً صَالِحَاً

God grants a good friend to the one for whom He wishes good.

اِنَّ اللَّهَ أَمَرَنِي بِمُدَارَاةِ النَّاسِ كَمَا أَمَرَنِي بِاِقَامَةِ الْفَرَائِضِ.

God has commanded me to behave moderately with people, as he has commanded me to perform my obligations.

ما خَلَقَ اللَّهُ مِنْ شَي‏ءٍ إلاّ وَقَدْ خَلَقَ لَهُ ما يَغْلِبُهُ وَخَلَقَ رَحْمَتَهُ تَغْلِبُ غَضَبَهُ.

God has created something to overcome any other created thing, and thus, His Mercy has He created to overcome His anger.

جَعَلَ اللَّهُ عَذابَ هذِهِ الأُمَّةِ في دُنْياها.

God has decreed this nation (Muslims) to suffer their punishment in this very world.

ثَلاثٌ مَنْ فَعَلَهُنَّ ثِقَةً بِاللَّهِ وَاحْتِسَابَاً كانَ حَقَّاً عَلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالى أنْ يُعينَهُ وَأنْ يُبارِكَ لَهُ: مَنْ سَعى في فَكاكِ رَقَبَتِهِ ثِقَةً بِاللَّهِ وَاحْتِسَابَاً؛ كانَ حَقَّاً عَلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالى أنْ يُعِيْنَهُ وَأنْ يُبارِكَ لَهُ؛ وَمَنْ تَزَوَّجَ ثِقَةً بِاللَّهِ وَاحْتِسَابَاً كانَ حَقَّاً عَلَى اللَّهِ أنْ يُعِيْنَهُ وَأنْ يُبارِكَ لَهُ؛ وَمَنْ أحْيا أرْضَاً مَيْتَةً ثِقَةً بِاللَّهِ وَاحْتِسَاباً كانَ حَقَّاً عَلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالى أنْ يُعِيْنَهُ وَأنْ يُبارِكَ لَهُ.

God has made it incumbent on Himself to help and bestow blessing on the one who does the following three while relying on Him and hoping for His reward: trying to free oneself from slavery, marrying, and cultivating barren lands.

God has made wine and all the intoxicant unlawful.

ما خَلَقَ اللَّهُ فِي الأرْضِ شَيْئَاً أقَلَّ مِنَ العَقْلِ؛ وَإنَّ العَقْلَ في الأرْضِ أقَلُّ مِنَ الكِبْرِيْتِ الأحْمَرِ.

God has not created anything inferior to (man's) intellect on the earth, and that's inferior even to the earth's red sulphur.

God in the Day of Judgment will terrify whoever casts an awful look at a Muslim, terrifying him unfoundedly.

الطَّبِيْبُ اللَّهُ، وَلَعَلَّكَ تَرْفَقُ بِأَشْيَاءَ تَخْرُقُ بِهَا غَيْرُكَ.

God is pleased with little deeds of the one, who is pleased with Him as to little sustenance.

مَنْ أصَابَ حَدَّاً فَعُجِّلَ عُقُوبَتُهُ في الدُّنْيا فَاللَّهُ أعْدَلُ مِنْ أنْ يَثْنِي عَلى عَبْدِهِ العُقُوبَةَ في الآخِرَةِ، وَمَنْ أصَابَ حَدَّاً فَسَتَرَهُ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ، فَاللَّهُ أكْرَمُ مِنْ أنْ يَعُوْدَ في شَيْ‏ءٍ قَدْ عَفَا عَنْهُ.

God is too Just to punish His servants anew in the Hereafter, if they are punished in this very world for their sins, and God is too Generous to reconsider man's punishable sins after having covered them and forgiven him (in this world).

صَدَقَ اللَّهُ فَصَدِّقْهَ.

God is truthful, and so be truthful to Him.

كَبُرَ مَقْتَاً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ الأكْلُ مِنْ غَيْرِ جُوْعٍ، وَالنَّوْمُ مِنْ غَيْرِ سَهَرٍ، وَالضِّحْكُ مِنْ غَيْرِ عَجَبٍ.

God is very displeased with (people) eating without hunger, sleeping without tiredness and laughing without reason.

خُلْقَانِ يُحِبُّهُمَا اللَّهُ، وَخُلْقَانِ يُبْغِضُهُمَا اللَّهُ. فَأَمَّا اللَّذانِ يُحِبُّهُمَا اللَّهُ فَالسَّخَاءُ وَالسَّمَاحَةُ؛ وَأمَّا اللَّذانِ يُبْغِضُهُمَا اللَّهُ فَسُوْءُ الخُلْقِ وَالبُخْلِ، وَاِذا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِعَبْدٍ خَيْرَاً اسْتَعْمَلَهُ عَلى قَضَاءِ حَوائِجِ النَّاسِ.

God likes two characteristic features (for man) and dislikes two others. The former are generosity and forgiveness; the latter, parsimony and ill- temperedness, and when He wishes goodness for someone, He assigns him (her) the service of people.

خَلَقَ اللَّهُ مِائَةَ رَحْمَةٍ، فَوَضَعَ رَحْمَةً واحِدَةً بَيْنَ خَلْقِهِ يَتَراحَمُونَ بِها وَخَبَأَ عِنْدَهُ مِائَةً إلاّ واحِدَةً.

God provides the moderate ones with abundance, afflicts the extravagant with poverty, grants to the humble sublimity, and makes the arrogant face ruin.

مَنْ تَواضَعَ للَّهِِ رَفَعَهُ اللَّهُ، وَمَنْ تَكَبَّرَ وَضَعَهُ اللَّهُ، وَمَنْ يَتَأَلَّ عَلى اللَّهِ يُكَذِّبْهُ اللَّهُ.

God raises (the status of) the one who keeps humble for Him, lowers the one who shows vanity to Him, and belies the one who swears falsely by Him.

مَنْ طَلَبَ العِلْمَ تَكَفَّلَ اللَّهُ بِرِزْقِهِ.

God secures the sustenance of those who seek knowledge.

God will assist anyone who intents to pay back his debts.

ما مِنْ عَبْدٍ يَسْتَرْعِيهِ اللَّهُ رَعِيَّةً ثُمَّ يَمُوتُ يَوْمَ يَمُوتُ غَاشَّاً لِرَعِيَّتِهِ إلاّ حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ الجَنَّةَ.

God will banish Paradise for the one who dies after having deceived his servants whom God have put under his supervision.

مَنْ التَمَسَ رِضَا اللَّهِ بِسَخَطِ النَّاسِ رَضِىَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ وَأرْضى عَنْهُ النَّاسَ، وَمَنْ التَمَسَ رِضَا النَّاسِ بِسَخَطِ اللَّهِ سَخَطَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأسْخَطَ عَلَيْهِ النَّاسَ.

God will be pleased with whoever seeks His consent, even if it leads to people's anger, and will be angry about whoever seeks people's consent by making Him displeased.

مَنْ بَنَى مَسْجِدَاً وَلَوْ مِثْلَ مَفْحَصِ قَطَاةٍ بَنَى اللَّهُ لَهُ بَيْتَاً فِي الجَنَّةِ.

God will build a house in Paradise for whoever builds a mosque, small as it may be only for a pigeon to lay its eggs in.

مَنْ أحْسَنَ فِيْمَا بَيْنَهُ وَبَيْنَ اللَّهِ كَفَاهُ اللَّهُ ما بَيْنَهُ وَبَيْنَ النَّاسِ، وَمَنْ أصْلَحَ سَرِيْرَتَهُ أصْلَحَ اللَّهُ عَلانِيَتَهُ.

God will create a good relation between people and the one who establishes a good relation with Him, and will amend the outward conditions of the one who rectifies his inner self.

حَقٌّ عَلَى اللَّهِ عَوْنُ مَنْ نَكَحَ اِلْتمَاسَ العَفَافِ عَمَّا حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ.

God will definitely give a hand to the one who marries in order to avoid indulging in the heavenly- unlawful deeds.

حُتِمَ عَلَى اللَّهِ أنْ لا يَسْتَجِيْبَ دَعْوَةَ مَظْلُوْمٍ وَلِأَحَدٍ قِبَلَهُ مِثْلُ مَظْلَمَتِهِ.

Good deeds ward off bad falls, hidden charity quenches God's wrath and observing the bonds of kinship prolongs one's life. Every good deed is charity, and the benevolent and the wicked of this world will be the benevolent and the wicked of the Hereafter, with the benevolent being the first to enter Paradise.

Good manners are ten in number. They may be found in a man but not in his son, in a son but not in his father, and in a servant but not in his master, and God bestows them upon those whom He wishes to prosper. They are: sincere talk, steadfastness in war, donation to the poor, goodness for goodness, trustfulness, keeping the bonds of kinship, supporting friends, supporting neighbors, hospitality, and above all, chastity.

حُسْنُ المَلَكَةِ نَمَاءٌ، وَسُوْءُ الخُلْقِ شُؤْمٌ، وَالبِرُّ زيادَةٌ في العُمْرِ، وَالصَّدَقَةُ تَمْنَعُ مِيْتَةَ السُّوْءِ.

Good- naturedness is growth and bad- naturedness, evil. Goodness brings man longevity, and bad deaths are prevented through charity.

حُسْنُ الخُلْقِ نِصْفُ الدِّيْنِ.

Good- naturedness is one half of religion.

حُسْنُ الخُلْقِ يُذِيْبُ الخَطايا كَمَا تُذِيْبُ الشَّمْسُ الجَلِيْدَ.

Good news is carried by the pious, and bad news by the impious.

مِنْ سَعَادَةِ المَرْءِ حُسْنُ الخُلْقِ؛ وَمِنْ شَقَاوَتِهِ سُوْءُ الخُلْقِ.

Good- temperedness is indicative of man's fortune and bad- temperedness of his misfortune.

الخُلْقُ الحَسَنُ يُذِيْبُ الخَطَايَا كَمَا يُذِيْبُ المَاءُ الجَلِيْدَ، وَالخُلْقُ السُّوءُ يُفْسِدُ العَمَلَ كَمَا يُفْسِدُ الخَلُّ العَسَلَ.

Good- temperedness wipes out one's sins just as water makes ice melt, and bad- temperedness ruins one's deeds just as vinegar makes honey spoil.

لَيْسَ البِرُّ في حُسْنِ اللِّبَاسِ وَالزِّيِّ، وَلكِنَّ البِرَّ السَّكِيْنَةُ وَالوَقَارُ.

Goodness does not lie in finery and brilliant bearing, but in peace and solemnity.

يَدُوْرُ المَعْرُوْفُ عَلى يَدِ مِأَةِ رَجُلٍ، آخِرُهُمْ فِيْهِ كَأَوَّلِهِمْ.

Goodness goes round in the hands of a hundred men, with the last one being rewarded as the first.

الخَيْرُ كَثِيْرٌ، وَمَنْ يَعْمَلْ بِهِ قَلِيْلٌ.

Goodness has many forms to do, but good doers are few.

المَعْرُوفُ بَابٌ مِنْ أبْوَابِ الجَنَّةِ؛ وَهُوَ يَدْفَعُ مَصَارِعَ السُّوْءِ.

Goodness is a door of heaven, blocking bad deaths.

البِرُّ حُسْنُ الخُلْقِ؛ وَالاِثْمُ ما حَاكَ في الصَّدْرِ وَكَرِهْتَ أَنْ يَطَّلِعَ عَلَيْهِ النَّاسُ.

Goodness is good- temperedness, and badness is what is carved in your heart and you do not like people to know about.

البِرُّ ما اطْمَأَنَّ اِلَيْهِ القَلْبُ؛ وَاطْمَأَنَّتْ اِلَيْهِ النَّفْسُ؛ وَالاِثْمُ ما حَاكَ فِي النَّفْسِ وَتَرَدَّدَ فِي الصَّدْرِ؛ وَاِنْ أَفْتَاكَ المُفْتُوْنَ.

Goodness is that in which your heart and soul find rest, and badness is that which is carved in your soul and which passes through your chest......?

الإحْسَانُ أَنْ تَعْبُدَ اللَّهَ كَأَنَّكَ تَرَاهُ فَاِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ تَرَاهُ فَاِنَّهُ يَرَاكَ.

Goodness is worshipping God in such a way as if you saw Him, for if you see Him not, He surely sees you.

القَبْرُ أوَّلُ مَنْزِلٍ مِنْ مَنَازِلِ الآخِرَةِ.

Grave is the first dwelling of the eternal ones.

الكَرَمُ التَّقْوَى، وَالشَّرَفُ التَّوَاضُعُ، وَاليَقِيْنُ الغِنَى

Greatness lies in piety, dignity in humility, and needlessness in certainty.

اِنَّ الصَّفَاةُ الزَّلالَ الَّذي لا تَثْبُتُ عَلَيْهِ أَقدَامُ الْعُلَمَاءِ الطَّمَعُ.

Greed is like unto a slippery piece of stone on which the scholars' feet will not stand firm.

أَفْشُوا السَّلامَ تَسْلَمُوا.

Greet openly, mind! Safety to find.

أَفْشُوا السَّلامَ وَأَطْعِمُوا الطَّعَامَ وَصِلُوا الْاَرْحامَ؛ وَصَلُّوا بِاللَّيْلِ وَالنَّاسُ نِيَامٌ؛ تَدْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ بِسَلامٍ.

Greet sincerely (openly), feed others, establish close relations with relatives and set prayers at nights when people are asleep, if you wish for permission to Paradise.

السَّلامُ قَبْلَ السُّؤَالِ؛ فَمَنْ بَدَأكُمْ بِالسُّؤَالِ قَبْلَ السَّلامِ فَلا تُجِيبُوهُ.

Greeting (should) precede asking (for something); thus, do not answer those who request before greeting (you).

السَّلامُ تَطَوُّعٌ وَالرَّدُّ فَرِيْضَةٌ.

Greeting is an act voluntary, but responding to it is obligatory.

السَّلامُ اسْمٌ مِنَ أسْمَاءِ اللَّهِ؛ وَضَعَهُ اللَّهُ في الأرْضِ فَأَفشُوْهُ بَيْنَكُمْ فَاِنَّ الرَّجُلَ المُسْلِمَ اِذا مَرَّ بِقَوْمٍ فَسَلَّمَ عَلَيْهِمْ فَرَدُّوا عَلَيْهِ؛ كانَ لَهُ عَلَيْهِمْ فَضْلُ دَرَجَةٍ بِتَذْكِيْرِهِ اِيَّاهُمُ السَّلامَ؛ فَاِنْ لَمْ يَرُدُّوا عَلَيْهِ؛ رَدَّ عَلَيْهِ مَنْ هُوَ خَيْرٌ مِنْهُمْ وَأطْيَبُ.

Greeting is one of God's attributes He has spread on the earth. So, let it prevail among you, for when a Muslim passes by a people and greets them, he will be higher in rank than them if he is greeted back, and he will be greeted back by someone better and purer than them if they do not respond to his greeting.

السَّلامُ تَحِيَّةٌ لِمِلَّتِنَا وَأمَانٌ لِذِمَتِّنَا.

Greeting is peace for our people and guarantee for our commitments.

مِنَ الصَّدَقَةِ أنْ تُسَلِّمَ عَلى النَّاسِ؛ وَأَنْتَ طَلِقُ الوَجْهِ.

Greeting people and having a cheerful face is a form of charity.

الهَمُّ نِصْفُ الهَرِمِ.

Grief is half of oldness.

مَنْ ابْتَلى فَصَبَرَ وَأُعْطِىَ فَشَكَر، وَظُلِمَ فَغَفَرَ، وَظَلَمَ فَاسْتَغْفَرَ أُولِئكَ لَهُمُ الأَمْنُ وَهُمْ مُهْتَدُونَ.

Guided and saved will be the ones who keep patient in calamity, who are grateful when gifted a bounty, who forgive in suffering tyranny, and who seek (God's) forgiveness after treating people unjustly.
