Selected Sayings of the Prophet of Islam

Reading the following statements made by the Prophet of Islam s.a.w on various subject matters will provide one with an insight into the tenets of this faith, its morals and ethics, individual and social norms and systems. It is a bird's eye view at what religion stands for.

احفظ ود ابیك، لا تقطعہ فیطفیء اللہ نورك

Safeguard your father's affection; do not sever it lest Allah should put your noor (celestial light) out.

بروا اباءکم تبرکم ، وعفوا تعف نساوکم

Be kind to your parents, your offspring will be kind to you; be chaste, so your women may be chaste (too)

.

ثلاث دعوات مستجابات لاشك فيهن : دعوة المظلوم ودعوة المسافر ودعوة الوالد على ولدة

Three supplications are honored, there is no doubt therein: the supplication of a wronged person, the supplication of a traveler and the supplication of a father against his son.

دُعَاءُ الوَالِدِ لِوَلَدِه كَدُعَاءِ النَّبِيِّ لِأُمَّتِه.

A father's supplication for his son is like a prophet's supplication for his nation.

طَاعَةُ اللَّهِ طَاعَةُ الوالِدِ، وَمَعْصِيَةُ اللَّهِ مَعْصِيَةُ الوالِدِ

Obedience of Allah lies in obeying the father; disobedience of Allah is disobeying the father.

اذ الله عبدا ابتلاه ليسمع تضرعه

If Allah loves one of His servants, He tests him so He may hear him pleading.

ان الله يبتلى عبده المومن بالسقم حتى يكفر عنه كل ذنب

Allah afflicts His believing servant with illness till He wipes out all his sins.

لَوْ نَظَرْتُمْ إلَى الأجَلِ وَمَسِيْرِهُ لأبْغَضْتُمُ الأمَلَ وَسُرُورَهُ

If only you see destiny and its march, you will hate hope and its vanity.

البركته فى اكابرنا: فمن لم يرحم صغيرنا ويجل كبيرنا فليس منا

The blessing lies in our elderly; one who is not merciful to our young, nor does he hold our elderly in high esteem, is not one of us.

ليس منا من لم يوقر الكبير و ير حم الصغير ويامر بالمعروف وينه عن المنكر

None of us is one who does not hold the elderly with high esteem, who is not merciful to the young, who does not enjoin the doing of what is right and does not forbid the doing of what is wrong.

وقرو ا من تعلمون منه العلم, و و قروا من تعلمونه العلم

Hold in high esteem the one from whom you acquire knowledge, and (likewise) hold in high esteem one whom you teach knowledge.

بئس العبد المحتكر: ان ارخص الله الاسعار حزن, وان اغلاها الله فرح

Miserable is a monopolizing servant (of Allah): When Allah lets prices go down, he is grieved, and when He permits them to rise, he is elated.

التاجر ينتظر الرزق, والمحتكر ينتظر اللعنة

A trader awaits sustenance, whereas one who monopolizes awaits the curse.

من احتكر على المسلمين طعامهم ضربه الله بالجذام

One who hoards the Muslims' food will be hit by Allah with leprosy.

انك ان تترك ورثك اغنياء خير من ان تتركهم عالة

If you leave behind you rich heirs, it is better than leaving them a burden on others.

اذا اثنى عليك جيرانك انك محسن, فانت محسن

If your neighbors compliment you as a man of benevolence, you are a benevolent man.

اذا حكمتم فاعدلو, واذا قلتم فاحسنو, فان الله محسن يحب المحسنين

When you judge, be just; when you speak, say what is good, for Allah is good and He loves those who are good.

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

Goodness is that you worship Allah as though you see Him; for if you do not see Him, He sees you.

ان الله تعلى محسن, فاحسنو

Allah Almighty is benevolent; so, you should be benevolent.

اذا ريت من اخيك ثلاث خصال فارجه: الحياء والامانة و الصدق, و اذا لم ترها فلا ترجه

If you see three traits in your (Muslim) brother, rest your hope on him; they are: modesty, trustworthiness and honesty; and if you do not see them, do not rest your hope on him.

افضل الاعمال ان تدخل على اخيك المؤمن السرور او ان تقضى عنه دينا

The best of deeds is to bring happiness to your believing brother or pay a debt on his behalf.

أَللَّهُ في عَوْنِ الْعَبْدِ مَا كانَ الْعَبْدُ في عَوْنِ أَخِيْهِ

Allah helps His servant so long as the servant helps his brother.

أُنْصُرْ أَخَاكَ ظَالِمَاً أَوْ مَظْلومَاً؛ اِنْ يَكُ ظَالِمَاً فَارْدُدْهُ عَنْ ظُلْمِهِ؛ وَاِنْ يَكُ مَظْلُومَاً فَانْصُرْهُ

Support your brother when he is a wrongdoer or when he is wronged: If he is a wrongdoer, keep him away from wrongdoing, and if he is wronged, do support him.

تَبَسُّمُكَ في وَجْهِ أَخِيْكَ لَكَ صَدَقَةٌ، وَأَمْرُكَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَنَهْيُكَ عَنِ المُنْكَرِ صَدَقَةٌ، وَاِرْشَادُكَ الرَّجُلَ في أَرْضِ الضَّلالِ لَكَ صَدَقَةٌ، وَاِمَاطَتُكَ الحَجَرَ وَالشَّوْكَ وَالعَظْمَ عَنِ الطَّرِيْقِ لَكَ صَدَقَةٌ

.
Your smile in the face of your brother is (equivalent to) charity; your enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong is charity; your providing guidance to someone in the land of misguidance is charity, and your removal of rocks, thorns or bones from the way is counted as an act of charity for you.

ثلاث من كن فيه فان الله تعلى يغفر له ماسوى ذالك: من مات لا يشك فى الله شينا ولم يكن ساحرا يتبع السحر ولم يحقد على اخيه

If one has three traits, Allah Almighty forgives him everything else: One who dies without associating anything with Allah, nor was he a magician following the path of magicians, nor did he bear any grudge against his brother.

خير اخوانكم من اهدى اليكم عيوبكم

The best of your brothers is the one who guides you to your
faults.

عون العبد اخاه يوما خير من اعتكافه شهر


ا

A servant (of Allah) who helps his brother for one day is better than his worship in solitude for a month.

قِتَالُ المُسْلِمِ كُفْرٌ وَسِبَابُهُ فُسُوْقٌ، وَلا تَحِلُّ لِمُسْلِمٍ أنْ يَهْجُرَ أخَاهُ فَوْقَ ثَلاثَةِ أيَّام

Fighting a Muslim is apostasy; taunting him is debauchery; a Muslim is not allowed to stay away from his brother for more than three days.

ما يحل لمؤمن ان يشتد الى اخيه بنظرة توذيه

It is not lawful for a believer to look at his brother in a way that harms him (hurts his feelings).

اِذا تَقَارَبَ الزَّمَانُ أَنقَى الْمَوْتُ خِيَارَ أمَّتِي كَمَا يَنْتَقِي أَحَدُكُمْ خِيَارَ الرُّطَبِ مِنَ الطَّبَق

When time approaches its end, death will select the good ones from among my nation just like when one of you selects fresh ripe dates from a platter.

سَتَكُونُ فَتِنٌ يُصْبِحُ الرَّجُلُ فيها مُؤْمِنَاً، وَيُمْسِي كافِرَاً، إلاّ مَنْ أحْيَاهُ اللَّهُ بِالعِلْم

.
There will be sedition in which a man receives daylight as a believer, then he receives the evening as an unbeliever save one whom Allah grants life through knowledge.

سَيَأْتِي عَلى أُمَّتِي زَمَانٌ يَكْثُرُ فِيْهِ الفُقَرَاءُ، وَيَقِلُّ الفُقَهَاءُ وَيُقْبَضُ العِلْمُ، وَيَكْثُرُ الهَرْجُ، ثُمَّ يَأْتِي مِنْ بَعْدِ ذلِكَ زَمَانٌ يَقْرَأُ القُرْآنَ رِجَالٌ مِنْ أُمَّتِي لا يُجَاوِزُ تَرَاقِيَهُمْ، ثُمَّ يَأْتِي مِنْ بَعْدِ ذلِكَ زَمَانٌ يُجَادِلُ المُشْرِكُ بِاللَّهِ المُؤْمِنَ في مِثْلِ مَا يَقُوْلُ

.

Time will come to my nation when the poor are many, when the faqihs (jurists, those who know their creed very well) are few, when knowledge is held back and there will be plenty of fuss. Time will come after that when men from among my nation shall recite the Qur'an, but it will hardly go beyond their throats. Then time will come after that when a polytheist argues about Allah with a believer similarly to the way the latter argues.

لياتين على الناس زمان لا يبالى المرء بما اخز المال امن حلال ام من حرام

Time will come to people when one does not care whether the money he gets is from a permissible or prohibitive source.

غَشِيَتْكُمْ سَكْرَتَانِ: سَكْرَةُ حُبِّ العَيْشِ وَحُبِّ الجَهْلِ فَعِنْدَ ذلِكَ لا تَأْمُرُونَ بِالمَعْرُوفِ وَلا تَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ المُنْكَر

Two stupors have overwhelmed you: love for life and love for ignorance. It is then that you will not enjoin the doing of what is right, nor will you forbid the doing of what is wrong.

يأتى على الناس زمان القابض منهم على دينه كالقابض على الجمر

Time will come to people when one who holds on to his religion is like one who holds burning timbers.

ان من اشراط ان الساعة ان يرفع العلم و يظهر الجهل و يفشو الزنا و يشرب الخمر ويذهب الرجال ويبقى النساء حتى يكون الخميس امراة قيم واحد

One of the conditions of the Hour is that knowledge is removed, ignorance prevails, committing adultery is rampant, wine is drunk, men will be gone and women will remain, so much so that for every fifty women there will be one man to look after them.

اِسْتَحْيُوا مِنَ اللَّهِ حَقَّ الْحَيَاءِ؛ مَنِ اسْتَحْيَى مِنَ اللَّهِ حَقَّ الْحَيَاءِ فَلْيَحْفَظِ الرَّأْسَ وَمَا وَعَى وَلْيَحْفَظِ الْبَطْنَ وَمَا حَوَى؛ وَلْيَذْكُرِ الْمَوْتَ وَالْبَلاءَ، وَمَنْ أَرَادَ الآخِرَةَ تَرَكَ زينَةَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيا؛ فَمَنْ فَعَلَ ذلِكَ فَقَدِ اسْتَحْيا مِنَ اللَّهِ حَقَّ الْحَياءِ

.

Be bashful with regard to Allah as you should; one who is truthfully bashful with regard to Allah is one who safeguards the head and that of which it is aware, who safeguards the stomach and what it contains, and who remembers death and affliction. One who seeks the Hereafter abandons the embellishment of the short life; so, if one does all of that, he truly is bashful with regard to Allah.

ان اشد الناس ندامة يوم القيامة رجل باع أخرته بدنيا غيره

The most regretful of all people on the Judgment Day is one who sold his Hereafter for the sake of someone else's life.

أَلا أُنْبِئُكَ بِشَرِّ النَّاسِ؟ مَنْ أَكَلَ وَحْدَهُ؛ وَمَنَعَ رِفْدَهُ؛ وَسَافَرَ وَحْدَهُ؛ وَضَرَبَ عَبْدَهُ، أَلا أُنْبِئُكَ بِشَرٍّ مِنْ هذا؟ مَنْ يُخْشَى شَرُّهُ وَلا يُرْجَى خَيْرُهُ، أُنْبِئُكَ بِشَرٍّ مِنْ هذا؟ مَنْ بَاعَ آخِرَتَهُ بِدُنْيا غَيْرِهِ، ألا أُنْبِئُكَ بِشَرٍّ مِنْ هذا؟ مَنْ أَكَلَ الدُّنْيا بِالدِّيْن

Shall I inform you of the worst of all people? He is one who eats alone, who does not give others, and who beats his slave (servant). Shall I inform you of one who is even worse than him? He is one whose evil is dreaded, and nobody anticipates any goodness from him. Shall I inform you of one who is even worse than him? He is one who has sold his Hereafter for someone else's life. Shall I inform you of one who is even worse than him? He is one who has consumed life in this world through the medium of religion.

أشَدُّ النَّاسِ عَذَابَاً يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ عَالِمٌ لَمْ يَنْفَعهُ عِلمُهُ

One who receives the most torment on the Judgment Day is a man of knowledge who was not enabled by Allah to benefit from his knowledge (on account of not applying his knowledge).

ان الله تعلى يبغض كل عالم بالدنيا جاهل بالاخره

Allah, the most Blessed, the most Exalted One, holds in contempt anyone who knows about this life but does not know about the Hereafter.

خير الدنيا والاخرة مع العلم, وشرالدنيا والاخره مع الجهل

The best of this life and of the one to come lies with knowledge, whereas the evil of this life and of the life to come lies with ignorance.

خَيْرُكُمْ أزْهَدُكُمْ في الدُّنْيَا، وَأرْغَبُكُمْ في الآخِرَةِ

The best of you is one who is the most ascetic in this life, the most desirous of the Hereafter.

يْسَ بِخَيْرِكُمْ مَنْ تَرَكَ دُنْيَاهُ لآخِرَتِهِ وَلا آخِرَتِهِ لِلدُّنْيَا، حَتَّى يُصِيْبَ مِنْهُمَا جَمِيْعَاً، فَإِنَّ الدُّنْيَا بَلاغٌ إلَى الآخِرَةِ وَلا تَكُونُوْا كَلاّ عَلى النَّاسِلَ


.

The best of you is one who does not leave his Hereafter for the sake of his life, nor his life for the sake of his Hereafter, nor is
he a burden on people.

ث


َلاثَةٌ مَنْ كُنَّ فِيْهِ يَسْتَكْمِلُ اِيْمانَهُ: رَجُلٌ لا يَخافُ في اللَّهِ لَوْمَةَ لائِمٍ؛ وَلا يُرائِي بِشَيْ‏ءٍ مِنْ عَمَلِهِ؛ وَاِذا عُرِضَ عَلَيْهِ أمْرانِ أَحَدُهُما لِلدُّنْيا وَالْآخَرُ لِلآخِرَةِ؛ اِخْتارَ أَمْرَ الْآخِرَةِ عَلَى الدُّنْيا

One who has in him three traits has a perfect conviction: A man who does not fear, when it comes to Allah, anyone's blame, who does not make a show of any of his good deeds; and when two matters are offered to him one of which is for the sake of this life while the other is for the sake of the Hereafter, he prefers the matter of the Hereafter over that of this life.

من احب دنيا اضر باخرة, ومن احب اخرة اضر بدنيه, فاثرواما بيقى على ما يفنى

One who loves his life harms his Hereafter, and one who loves
his Hereafter harms his life; therefore, you should prefer what lasts (forever, i.e. the Hereafter) over what comes to an end.

تفر غوا من هموم الدنيا ما استطعتم, فانه من كانت الدنيا اكبر همه افشى الله ضيعته وجل فقره بين عينيه وجل فقره بين عينيهو ومن كانت الاخرة اكبر همه جمع الله تعالى امره وجعل غناه فى قلبه

Empty your minds of the worries of this life as much as you can, for if one's utmost concern is this life, his loss will be disseminated by Allah, and He will let him see his poverty with his own eyes. And if one regards the Hereafter as his greatest concern, Allah will gather his affairs for him and will render him rich of heart.

خَيْرُكُمْ مَنْ لَمْ يَتْرُكْ آخِرَتَهُ لِدُنْيَاهُ، وَلا دُنْيَاهُ لآخِرَتِهِ، وَلَمْ يَكُنْ كَلاّ عَلَى النَّاسِ

The best of you is not one who abandons his life for the sake of his Hereafter nor his Hereafter for the sake of his life until he enjoys his share of both of them, for this life is a passage to the Hereafter, and do not be a burden on people .

اخلص دينك يكفك القليل من العمل

Be sincere in practicing your religion, few good deeds will then suffice you.

اخلصو اعمالكم الله, فان الله يقبل الا ما خلص له

Dedicate your good deeds sincerely for the sake of Allah, for Allah accepts only what is purely dedicated to Him.

افضلكم ايمان أحْسَنُهُمْ خُلْقَا

The best of you in conviction is the best of you in conduct.

انكم لن تسعوا الناس باموالكم ولكن سعو هم باخلاقكم

You shall never please all people with your wealth; so, do please them with your good manners.

حُسْنُ الخُلْقِ يُذِيْبُ الخَطايا كَمَا تُذِيْبُ الشَّمْسُ الجَلِيْدَ

Good manners melt sins just as the sun melts ice.

افضل المومن اسلاما من سلم المسلمون من لسانة ويدة وافضل المومنين ايمانا احسنهم خلقا

The best of the faithful in his acceptance of Islam is one from
whose tongue and hand (mischief) people are safe, and the best of the believers in belief is the best among them in conduct.

ان الناس لم يعطو اشينا خيرا من خلق حسن

People have never been granted anything better than good manners.

ان من اكمل المؤمنين ايمنا احسنهم خلقا والطفهم باهلة

A believer who is the most perfect in his belief is the one who is the best in conduct and is the nicest to his family.

ثلاثة من مكارم الاخلاق عند اللہ ان تفعو عمن ظلمك و تعطى من حرمك وتصل من قطعك

Three things are regarded by Allah among traits of good manners: You forgive the one who wrongs you, you give the one who deprives you and you maintain your ties with the one who severs them from you.

خير ما اعطى الرجل المؤمن خلق حسن و شر ما اعطى الرجل خلق سوء فى صورة حسنة

The best a believing man is granted is a good conduct, and the worst a man is given is an evil heart in a good form.

مكارم الاخلاق من اعمالالجَنَّةَ

Good manners are among the deeds that win Paradise.

من لا ادب لة لا عقل لة

One who is without good manners is without reason.

المض سوط اللہ فى الارض يودب بة عبادة

Sickness is Allah's whip on earth with which He disciplines His servants

.

أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ، اِنَّ رَبَّكُمْ وَاحِدٌ وَاِنَّ أَبَاكُمْ وَاحِدٌ، كُلُّكُمْ لِآدَمَ وَآدَمُ مِنْ تُرَابٍ، اِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ لا فَضْلَ لِعَرَبِيٍّ عَلى عَجَمِيٍّ اِلاّ بِالتَّقْوَى

O people! Your God is One, and your father is one: You all belong to Adam, and Adam was created of dust; the best of you in the eyes of Allah is the most pious among you; no Arab is better than a non-Arab except according to the criterion of piety.

لما صور الله تعالى آدم فى الجنة تركه ماشاء الله ان يتركه, فجعل ابليس يطيف به ينظر اليه, فلما راه اجوف عرف انه خلق لا يتمالك

When Allah Almighty shaped Adam in Paradise, He left him for as long as He willed, so lblis (Eblis) kept hovering around him, examining him; when he noticed that he was hallow, he knew that he was a weak being.

التاب من الذھب کمن لا ذنب له,و المستغفر من الذنب وهو مقيم عليه كالمسهزىء بربه,ومن اذى مسلما كان عليه من مثل منابت النخل

One who repents his sin is like one who never sinned; one who seeks forgiveness for his sin and yet continues to commit it is like one who ridicules his God; and whoever harms a Muslim shall bear sins similarly (in depth) to the roots of date trees.

ساعات الاذى فى الدنيا یذھن ساعت الاذی فی الاخرہ

Harm hours of this life wipe out harm hours in the Hereafter.

كل موذ فى النار

Every harmful individual shall be lodged in the Fire.

لَيْسَ شَيْ‏ءٌ مِنَ الجَسَدِ إلاّ وَهُوَ يَشْكُو ذَرَبَ اللِّسَانِ

There is no part in the body that does not complain about one's sharp tongue.

مَنْ آذَى مُسْلِمَاً فَقَدْ آذانِي؛ وَمَنْ آذانِي فَقَدْ آذَى اللَّهَ

One who harms a Muslim harms me, and whoever harms me harms Allah.

ما يصيب المؤمن من وصب ولا سقم و لا حزن الا كفر الله به من خطاياه

Any hardship, affliction, illness, harm or grief afflicts a believer is used by Allah to wipe out his sins.

ماخاب من استخار, ولاندم من استشار, ولا امن بالقران من استحل محارمه

No disappointment shall be the lot of one who seeks Allah's guidance, nor does one regret if he seeks advice, nor does one believe in the Qur'an if he deems as permissible what it decrees to be prohibitive.

استعيذوا بالله من الفقر والعيلة ومن ان تظلموا او تظلمو

Seek refuge with Allah against poverty, against being a burden on others, against wronging others or being wronged by others.

استعيذوا بالله من شرار النساء, وكونوا من خيار هن فى حذر

Seek refuge with Allah against evil women, and be alert with regard to the good ones from among them.

استعيذوا بالله من جهد البلاء ودرك الشفاء وسوء القضاءوشماتة الاعداء

Seek refuge with Allah against the exertion of affliction, against unavoidable suffering, against destiny which is bad for you and against enemies' gloating.

من استعاذكم بالله فاْعيذوه, ومن سالكم بالله فاعطوه, ومن دعاكم فاْجيبوه, ومن اتى اليكم معروفا فكافئوه فان لم تجدوه فاْعو اله حتى تعلموا انكم قد كافاتموه

If one seeks refuge with you in the Name of Allah, you should grant him refuge; if one asks you in the Name of Allah to give him (something), do give him; if one calls on you, you should respond to him, and if one does you a favor, you must reward him, but if you find no way to reward him, you should supplicate for him until you come to know that you have, indeed, rewarded him.

الشهود الخفية و الرياء شرك

A covert desire and pretension are akin to polytheism.

ان الشيتان قال: وعزتك يا رب لا ابرح اغوى عبادك ما دات ارواحهم فى اجسادهم, فقال رب: وعزتى وجلالى لا ازال اغفرلهم ما استغفرونى

Satan said, "By Your Exaltation, 0 Lord, (do I swear that) I shall never stop enticing Your servants so long as their souls remain in their bodies." The Lord, whereupon, said, "By My Exaltation and Greatness, I shall never cease forgiving them so long as they plead for My forgiveness."

الاستغفار ممحاة للذنوب

Seeking Allah's forgiveness obliterates sins.

ان العبد اذا اخطا خطينة نكت فى قلبه تكتة سوداء, فان هو تزع و استغفر و تاب صقل قلبه, وان عاد زيد فيها د حتى تعلو على قلبه وهو الران الذى ذکر اللہ تعالی : "کلا بل ران علی قلوبهم ما كانوا يكسبون"

When a servant of Allah commits a sin, a black spot takes its place in his heart. Ifhe reverts, regrets and repents; his heart will be cleansed of it. If he commits it again, its size will be greater, so much so that it covers his heart, which is the spot of stain mentioned by Allah Almighty in this verse: "By no means! But the stain of the (ill) that they do is on their hearts!" (Qur'an, 83:14).

لاكبيرة من استغفار, ولا صغيرة مع اصرار

No sin is too big so long as one seeks forgiveness, nor is there a sin that is too small if one insists on committing it.

من اكثر من الاستغفار جعل الله له من كل هم فرجا, ومن كل ضيق مخرجا, و رزقه من حيث لا يحتسب

If one seeks forgiveness much, Allah will find an ease for each
of his worries, a way out of each hardship and will provide him with sustenance from where he does not expect.

لكل دواء ودواء الذنوب الاستغفار

There is a medicine for every illness, and the medicine for sins is seeking forgiveness for them.

ان من السرف ان تاْكل كل ما اشتهيت

It is extravagance if you eat everything you desire.

كلو و اشربو وتصدقو و البسوا فى غير اسراف ولا مخيلة

Eat, drink, pay charity and clothe yourselves without extravagance or making a show.

من قدر رزقه الله ,ومن بذر حرمه الله

One who economizes is sustained by Allah, and one who squanders is deprived by Allah.

من اقتصد اغناه الله, ومن بذر افقره الله, ومن تواضع لله رفعه الله, ومن تجبر قصمه الله

One who economizes is enriched by Allah; one who squanders is impoverished by Allah; one who is humble is raised in status by Allah, and the back of one who is haughty is split by Allah.

طالب العلم طالب الرحمة: طالب علم ركن الاسلام, ويعطى اجره مع النبيين

One who seeks knowledge (actually) seeks mercy; a seeker of knowledge is the column of Islam, and he shall be rewarded with the Prophets.

ثلاثة لا يستخف بحقهم الامنافق: ذو الشيبة فى الاسلام و ذو العلم و امام مقسط

Three which nobody but a hypocrite takes lightly are: One who grows gray hair in Islam, a man of knowledge and a just imam.

من شاب شيبة فى الاسلام كانت له نورا يوم القيامة

If one grows gray hair in Islam; it will be noor (celestial light) for him on the Judgment Day.

ان الاسلام بدا غريبا وسيعود غريبا كما بدا, فطوبى للغرباء

Islam started like a stranger and shall return like a stranger; therefore, congratulations to the strangers!

اَفْضَلُ الْصَّدَقَةِ اِصْلاحُ ذاتِ الْبَيْن

The best kind of charity is mending broken ties.

اصاح الناس اصلحهم للناس

The reformed of all people is one who is the best in mending their broken ties.

اصلح بين الناس ولو تعنى الكذب

Mend people's broken ties even if you intentionally tell a lie.

اطمعو طعامكم الاتقياء, و اولوا معروفكم المؤمنين

Serve your food to the pious, and do your favors to the men of belief.

بئس الطعام طعام العرس: يطعمه الاغنياء ويمنعه المساكين

Miserable is the food served in a wedding: The rich eat it, while the destitute are deprived of it.

من اطعم مسلما جانعا اطعمه الله من ثمار الجنة

If one feeds a hungry Muslim, Allah feeds him of the fruits of Paradise

.

ثَلاثٌ مُهْلِكاتٌ، وَثَلاثٌ مُنْجِيَاتٌ: فَالمُهْلِكاتٌ شُحٌّ مُطَاعٌ؛ وَهَوَىً مُتَّبَعٌ؛ وَاِعْجَابُ المَرْءِ بِنَفْسِهِ. وَالثَّلاثُ المُنْجِيَاتُ خَشْيَةُ اللَّهِ في السِّرِّ وَالعَلانِيَةِ؛ وَالقَصْدُ في الغِنَى وَالفَقْرِ؛ وَالعَدْلُ في الغَضَبِ وَالرِّضَا

Three things cause one's peril and three others save him: Perilous things are: an obeyed miserliness, a followed inclination and one feeling conceited. The three that saves are: fear of Allah in secrecy and in the open, moderation in spending even when one is rich, and fairness during the time of anger and of pleasure.

رحماء امتى اوساطها

Those from among my nation who deserve Allah's mercy are those who are moderate.

من لم يقبل العذر من متنصل, صادقا كان او كاذبا, لم ينل شفاعتى

If one does not accept the excuse of an apologetic person, be he truthful or lying, he shall never earn my intercession (on the Judgment Day).

شَرُّ النَّاسِ مَنْ أكَلَ وَحْدَهُ وَمَنَعَ رِفْدَهُ وَجَلَدَ عَبْدَهُ، وَشَرٌّ مِنْهُ مَنْ لا يُقِيْلُ عَثْرَةً وَلا يَقْبَلُ مَعْذِرَةً، وَشَرٌّ مِنْهُ مَنْ لا يُرْجى خَيْرُهُ وَلا يُؤْمَنُ شَرُّه

.
The worst of people is one who eats alone, who does not give others and who whips his slave (harms his servant). More evil than him is one who neither mends a stumble nor accepts an excuse. Still worse than him is one neither for whose goodness nobody hopes nor from whose evil is anyone secure.

من اراد ان تستجاب دعته و ان تكشف كربته فلفيرج عن معسر

If one wishes his supplication be honored and affliction removed must find an ease for someone who is in hardship.

من نفس عن مسلم كربة من كرب الدنيا نفس الله عنه كربة من كرب يوم القيامة, و من يسر على معسر يسر الله عليه فى الدنيا والاخرة, ومن ستر على مسلم ستر الله عليه فى الدنيا و الاخرة

If one finds an ease for a Muslim from one of life's hardships, Allah will find an ease for one of the hardships of the Judgment Day for him. If one finds ease for one who is suffering from a hardship, Allah will find ease for him in the life of this world and in the Hereafter. And if one covers a Muslim's fault, Allah will cover his faults in the life of this world and in the Hereafter.

من قاد اعمى اربعين خطوة غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه

One who leads a blind man the way for forty steps will have all his past sins forgiven.

اياكم و الغلو فى الدين, فانما هلك من قبلكم بالغلو فى الدين

Beware of being extremist in your religion; people before you perished because of religious extremism.

أَفْضَلُ الْعَمَلِ النِّيَّةُ الصَّادِقَةُ

The best of good deeds is the sincere intention.

اذا ارادا الله باْهل بيت خيرا فقههم فى الدين, و وقر صغير هم كبير هم, و رزقهم الرفق فى معيشتهم , و القصد فى نفقاتهم, وبصرهم عيوبهم فيتوبو منها, واذا اردا بهم غير ذلك, تركهم هملا

If Allah desires goodness for a family, He enables them to be faqihs in their creed, their youths honor their elderly, He blesses them with moderation in their sustenance, economizing in their expenses and enables them to see their faults, so they would repent; but if He desires for them otherwise, He ignores them.

الاقتصاد نصف العيش, وحسن الخلق نصف الدين

Economizing is half the sustenance, while good manners form half the creed.

خير الامور اوسطها

The best of matters are the most moderate.

افشوا السلام و اطعمو الطعام و صلو الارحام وصلو باليل و الناس نيام تدخلو الجنة سلام

Disseminate your greeting of peace, feed others, maintain your ties with your kinsfolk, and perform your prayers during the night while people are asleep so you may enter Paradise in peace.

افضل الفضائل ان تصل من قطعكو تعطى من حرمك و تصفح عمن ظلمك

The best of virtues is that you maintain your ties with those who sever them, give those who deprive you and forgive those who wrong you.

خمس يعجل الله لصاحبها العقوبة: البغى و الغدر و عقوق الو الدين وقطيعة الرحمو معروف لايشكر

There are five things the doer of which receives a hasty punishment: oppression, treachery, disobedience of parents, severing the ties with relatives and not expressing thanks for favors.

خِيَارُكُمْ خَيْرُكُمْ لِاَهْلِهِ

The best of you are those who are the best to their families.

الاكل مع الخادم من التواضع

Eating with the servant is a sign of humbleness.

لا تُمِيْتُوا القُلُوبَ بِكَثْرَةِ الطَّعامِ وَالشَّرابِ؛ فَاِنَّ القَلْبَ يَمُوتُ كَالزَّرْعِ اِذا كَثُرَ عَلَيْهِ المَاء

Do not cause the death of the hearts by consuming too much food and drinks, for the heart dies similarly to plants given too much water.

من تعود كثرة الطعام و الشراب قسا قلبه

One who gets used too much food and drinks becomes hard­
hearted.

من كل طعمه صح بدنه, و من كثرطعمه سقم بدنه و قسا قلبه

The body of one who eats less will be healthy, whereas one who eats too much exposes his body to sickness and his heart to hardiness.

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

Allah very much holds in contempt those who eat without
being hungry, those who sleep without feeling drowsy and those who laugh without there is anything out of the ordinary.

أَعْظَمُ النَّاسِ حَقَّاً عَلَى الْمَرْأَةِ زَوْجُهَا؛ وَأَعْظَمُ النَّاسِ حَقَّاً عَلَى الرَّجُلِ أُمُّهُ

The one who has the greatest right on a woman is her husband, and of all people, the one who has the greatest right on a man is
his mother.

ان الله تعالى يوصيكم بالنساء خيرا, فانهن امهتكم و بناتكم و خالاتكم

Allah Almighty commends you to be good to women, for they are your mothers, daughters and maternal aunts.

الجَنَّةُ تَحْتَ أقْدامِ الأُمَّهَاتِ

Paradise lies at the mothers' feet.

ان الله تعالى يزيد فى عمر الرجل ببره والديكه

Allah Almighty prolongs a man's lifespan on account of being kind to his parents.

رِضَا الرَّبِّ في رِضَا الوالِدَيْنِ وَسُخْطُهُ في سُخْطِهِما

The Pleasure of the Lord lies in pleasing the parents and His wrath lies in their displeasure.

ما مِنْ أحَدٍ أفْضَلَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ مِنْ اِمَامٍ؛ إنْ قَالَ صَدَقَ؛ وَإنْ حَكَمَ عَدَل

Nobody is better in the sight of Allah than an imam who is truthful when he speaks and just when he issues a verdict.

لَتُمْلَأَنَّ الأرْضُ ظُلْمَاً وَعُدْوَانَاً ثُمَّ لَيَخْرُجَنَّ رَجُلٌ مِنْ أهْلِ بَيْتِي حَتَّى يَمْلَأُهَا قِسْطَاً وَعَدْلاً كَمَا مُلِئَتْ ظُلْمَاً وَعُدْوَانَاً

You shall fill the earth with injustice and aggression, then a man from among my Household (al-Mahdi, May Allah hasten his reappearance) shall come out until he fills it with justice and equity as it was filled with injustice and iniquity.

اد الامانته الى من انتمنك, ولا تخن من خانك

Return the trust to the one who trusted you, and do not betray even one who betrays you.

أَرْبَعٌ اِذا كُنَّ فِيكَ فَلا عَلَيْكَ مَا فَاتَكَ مِنَ الدُّنْيا؛ صِدْقُ الْحَدِيثِ؛ وَحِفْظُ الاَمَانَةِ؛ وَحُسْنُ الْخُلْقِ؛ وَعِفَّةُ مَطْعَمٍ

If you have in you four things, never mind what you missed of life: saying the truth, safeguarding the trust, good manners and the goodness of what you eat.

اِضْمَنُوا لي سِتَّاً مِنْ أَنْفُسِكُمْ أَضْمَنْ لَكُمُ الْجَنَّةَ؛ أُصْدُقُوا اِذا حَدَّثْتُمْ؛ وَأَوْفُوا اِذا وَعَدْتُمْ؛ وَأَدُّوا اِذا ائْتُمِنْتُمْ؛ وَاحْفَظُوا فُرُوجَكُمْ؛ وَغُضُّوا أَبْصَارَكُمْ؛ وَكُفُّوا أَيْدِيَكُمْ

If you guarantee six things to be found in you, I shall guarantee Paradise for you: Say the truth when you speak, fulfill your promise, return the trust, safeguard your modesty, lower your gaze and do not harm others.

لا ايمان لمن لا امانة له, ولا دين لمن لا عهد له

There is no conviction in one who is not trustworthy, nor is there faith in one who never safeguards his pledge.

ثلاث ليس لاحد النلس فيه رخصة: بر الوالدين مسلما كان او كافرا,والوفاء بالعهد لمسلم اْو لكافر, والامانة الى مسلم كان او كافر

There are three things for which there is no license for anyone: kindness to the parents, be they believers or unbelievers, fulfillment of a promise to a believer or a non-believer, fulfillment of a pledge for a believer or a non-believer, and giving the trust back to a man, be he a believer or a non­ believer.

ثلاث منكن فيه فهو منافق و ان صام و صلى وحج و اعتمر وقال "انى مسلم": من اذا حدث کذب, و اذا وعد اخلف, و اذا ائتمن خان

If one has three things in him, he is a hypocrite no matter if he fasts, prays, performs the pilgrimage and the 'umra and says, "I am a Muslim;" they are: When he talks, he lies; when he makes a promise, he does not honor it, and when he is entrusted, he betrays the trust.

الجهاد اربعة, الامر بالمعروف و النهى عن المنكر و الصدق فى مواطن البصر و شنان الفاسق

Jihad (struggle) means four things: enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, being truthful in stances of perseverance and staying away from debauchees.

مروا بالمعروف و ان لم تفعلوه و انهوا عن المنكر وان لم تجتنبوه كله

Enjoin the doing of what is right even if you yourselves do not do it, and prohibit the doing of what is wrong even if you do not avoid all of it.

لتاْمرن بالمعروف و ان لم تفعلو و انهوا عن المنكر و ان لم تجتنبوه كله

You should enjoin the doing of what is right and the forbidding of what is wrong; otherwise, Allah will grant power to your evil ones against you, so your men of righteousness will supplicate, but their supplication will not be answered.

من لم تنهه صلواته عن الفحشاء و المنكر لم يزدر بها من الله الا بعدا

If one's prayers do not prohibit him from committing sins and abominations, it only further distances him from Allah.

من راى منكم منكره فليغيره بيده, فان لم يستطع فلبلسانه, فان لم يستطع فبقلبه, وذلك اضعف الايمان

If one of you sees wrongdoing, he has to change it with his hands; but if he cannot, he must change it with his tongue; but if he cannot, he must do so in his heart, which is a sign of the weakest faith.

ان الله تعالى حيى كريم يستحى اذا رفع الرجل اليه يديه ان يردهما صفراء خائبين

Allah Almighty is shy, generous; He is too shy when someone raises his hands to Him with a plea to send them back empty­ handed.

خلق الله عز و جل الجن ثلاثة اصناف: صنف حيات و عقارب و خشاش الارض, و صنف كالريح فى الهواء, و صنف عليهم الحساب و العقاب, و خلق الله الانس ثلاثة اصناف: صنف كالبهائم, و صنف اجساد بنى آدم و ارواحهم ارواح الشياطين, و صنف فى ظل الله يوم لا ظل الا ظله

Allah, the most Exalted One and the most Great, created three types of jinns: one type are snakes, scorpions and earth ruffage; and a type like wind in the air; and a type that will be judged and punished. And Allah created three types of mankind: one is like cattle, one with bodies similar to those of human beings but with souls like those of demons, and a type that will be shaded by Allah's shade when there shall be no shade but His.

ما ملا آدمى وعاء شرا من بطن

No descendant of Adam has filled any container worse than a stomach.

كَمَا تَكُوْنُوْا يُوَلَّى عَلَيْكُمْ

As you are, so shall you be ruled.

اذا اعطى الله احدكم خيرا, فليبده بنفسه و اهل بيته

If Allah grants one of you something good, let him start with himself and his family.

افضل الدنانير دينار ينفقه الرجل على عباله

The best dinar is one which a man spends on his dependents.

شَرُّ النَّاسِ المُضَيِّقُ عَلى أهْلِهِ

The worst of people is one who straitens [does not spend enough] on his family.

ليس الجهاد ان يضرب الرجل بسيفه فى سبيل الله تعالى, انما الجهاد من عال والديه و ولده, فهو فى جهاد, و من عال نفسه يكفها عن الناس فهو جهاد

Jihad (struggle) does not mean a man striking with the sword in the way of Allah Almighty; rather, jihad is spending on the parents and children, such is the performing of jihad. And if one sustains himself and does not depend on people (to sustain him), he is one who per forrns jihad.

ليس منا من وسع الله عليه ثم قتر على عياله

None of us is one who is granted abundance by Allah yet he is stingy when spending on his dependents.

ما أطْعَمْتَ زَوْجَتَكَ فَهُوَ لَكَ صَدَقَةٌ، وَما أطْعَمْتَ وَلَدَكَ فَهُوَ لَكَ صَدَقَةٌ، وَما أطْعَمْتَ خَادِمَكَ فَهُوَ لَكَ صَدَقَةٌ. ما أطْعَمْتَ نَفْسَكَ فَهُوَ لَكَ صَدَقَةٌ

Whatever you feed your wife is counted as charity for you; whatever you feed your children is counted as charity for you; whatever you feed your servant is counted as charity for you, and whatever you feed yourself is counted as charity for you.

نفقة الرجل على اهله صدقة

A man's expenditure on his family is charity.

أَخْشَى مَا خَشَيْتُ عَلى أُمَّتِي كِبَرُ الْبَطْنِ؛ وَمُداوَمَةُ النَّوْمِ؛ وَالْكَسَلُ؛ وَضَعْفُ الْيَقِينِ

The most that worries me about my nation is a large belly, too much sleep, laziness and a weakness of conviction.

أشْرَفُ الاِيْمَانِ أَنْ يَأْمَنَكَ النَّاسُ؛ وَأَشْرَفُ الاِسْلامِ أَنْ يَسْلَمَ النَّاسُ مِنْ لِسَانِكَ وَيَدِكَ

The best type of conviction is that people feel secure in your regard, and the best type of Islam is that people are safe from your tongue and hand.

ابى الله ان يقبل عمل صاحب بدعة حتى يدع بدعته

Allah refuses to accept the good deeds of one who has invented an innovation (bid 'a) unless he abandons it.

من وقر صاحب بدعة فقد اعان على هدم الاسلام

One who respects an individual who invented a bid 'a assists in the demolition of Islam.

من الصدقة ان تسلم على الناس و انت طلق الوجه

It is charity when you greet people with a smile on your face.

ليس الاعمى من يعمى بصره, انما الاعمى من تعمى بصيرته

A blind man is not one who loses his eyesight; rather, one is blind when his foresight is blind.

حُرِّمَ عَلى عَيْنَيْنِ أنْ تَنالَهُمَا النَّارُ: عَيْنٌ بَكَتْ مِنْ خَشْيَةِ اللَّهِ؛ وَعَيْنٌ باتَتْ تَحْرُسُ الإسْلامَ وَأهْلَهُ مِنَ الكُفْر

Two types of eyes are prohibited from being harmed by the Fire: an eye that wept out of fear of Allah, and an eye that kept vigil guarding Islam and its followers against apostasy.

سَبعةٌ يُظِلُّهُمُ اللَّهُ في ظِلِّهِ يَوْمَ لا ظِلَّ إلاّ ظِلُّهُ: اِمَامٌ عَادِلٌ وَشَابٌّ نَشَأَ في عِبَادَةِ اللَّهِ، وَرَجُلٌ قَلْبُهُ مُعَلَّقٌ بِالمَسْجِدِ، اِذا خَرَجَ مِنْهُ حَتَّى يَعُودَ إلَيْهِ، وَرَجُلانِ تَحَابَّا في اللَّهِ فَاجْتَمَعَا عَلى ذلِكَ وَافْتَرَقَا عَلَيْهِ، وَرَجُلٌ ذَكَرَ اللَّهَ خَالِيَاً فَفاضَتْ عَيْنَاهُ، وَرَجُلٌ دَعَتْهُ امْرَأةٌ ذاتُ مَنْصَبٍ وَجَمَالٍ فَقَالَ: اِنِّي أَخَافُ اللَّهَ رَبَّ العَالَمِيْنَ، وَرَجُلٌ تَصَدَّقَ بِصَدَقَةٍ فَأَخْفَاهَا حَتَّى لا تَعْلَمَ شِمَالُهُ مَا تُنْفِقُ يَمِيْنُه

Seven types of people will be under the shade of Allah's Throne on the Day when there will be no shade but His: a man whose heart was attached to mosques, a man who was seduced by a woman having a high status but he said, "I fear Allah," two men who loved each other for the sake of Allah, a man who kept his eyes away from whatever Allah forbids, an eye that remained on guard in the way of Allah, and an eye that wept out of fear of Allah.

طوبى لمن ملك لسانه و بكى على خطيئتة

Congratulations to whoever controls his tongue and weeps over his sin.

اربع من اعطيهن فقد اعطى خير الدنيا والاخرة: لسان ذاكر و قلب شاكر و بدن على البلاء صابر و زوجة لا تبغية خونا فى نفسها ولا فى ماله

There are four things, if one is granted them, he is granted the best of this life and of the Hereafter: a tongue that always mentions the Name of Allah, a heart that is grateful, a body that is patient when affliction falls and a wife who does not wish to betray him with regard to her own self or to his own wealth.

حضوا اموالكم بالزكاة, و داووا مرضاكم بالصدقة, واعدا للبلاء الدعاء

Fortify your wealth with zakat, medicate on your sick with charity, and prepare supplication for affliction.

الدعاء يرد البلاء

Supplication averts affliction.

Allah Almighty has said, "If one does not accept My judgment,
nor is he patient with regard to My affliction, must seek a god other than Myself."

The best of you is the one who is best for his women and
daughters.

لَيْسَ أحَدٌ مِنْ أُمَّتِي يَعُولُ ثَلاثَ بَنَاتٍ أوْ ثَلاثَ أخَوَاتٍ فَيُحْسِنُ اِلَيْهِنَّ إلاّ كُنَّ لَهُ سِتْرَاً مِنَ النَّار

.

If one from among my nation raises three girls or three sisters, remaining good to them, they will act as a barrier for him against the Fire.

ان اللہ تعلى يحب اغاثة اللهفان

Allah Almighty loves it when a man suffering of anxiety is provided relief.

خَيْرُكُمْ مَنْ تَعَلَّمَ القُرْآنَ وَعَلَّمَه

The best of you is one who leamd the Qur'an then teaches it.

العِلْمُ حَيَاةُ الإسْلامِ وَعِمَادُ الإيمَانِ، وَمَنْ عَلِمَ عِلْمَاً أتَمَّ اللَّهُ لَهُ أجْرَهُ، وَمَنْ تَعَلَّمَ فَعَمِلَ عَلَّمَهُ اللَّهُ مَا لَمْ يَعْلَمْ

Knowledge is the life of Islam and the pillar of conviction; when one learns some type of knowledge, Allah will pay him his rewards in full; and if one learns and acts upon his knowledge, Allah will teach him what he never knew before.

اكرم الناس اتقاهم

The best of people is the most pious among them.

A believer's manners include neither flattery nor envy except when it comes to seeking knowledge.

من احب قوما حشرة اللہ فى زمرتهم

When one loves a certain people, Allah gathers him in their company.

الحَجُّ جِهَادُ كُلِّ ضَعِيْفٍ؛ وَجِهَادُ المَرْأَةِ حُسْنُ التَّبَعُّلِ

Pilgrimage is the jihad (struggle) of every weak person, and woman's jihad is being a good wife.

طاب علم افضل عند اللہ من الصلاة و الصيام و الحج و الجهاد فى سبيل اللہ عز وجل

Seeking knowledge is preferred by Allah over prayers, fast, pilgrimage and jihad (struggle) in the way of Allah, the most Exalted One, The most Great.

من قضى لاخية المسلم حاجة كان لة من الاجر كمن حج واعتمر

When one fulfills a need for a Muslim brother, he will receive rewards equivalent to one who has performed both the pilgrimage and the 'umra.

أَكْمَلُ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ اِيْمَانَاً أَحْسَنُهُمْ خُلْقَاً؛ وَخِيَارُكُمْ خِيَارُكُمْ لِنِسَائِهِمْ

The first to be weighed in the scales is the good conduct.


حَقُّ الجَارِ إنْ مَرِضَ عُدْتَهُ، وَإنْ مَاتَ شَيَّعْتَهُ، وَاِنْ اسْتَقْرَضَكَ أقْرَضْتَهُ، وَإنْ أصَابَهُ خَيْرٌ هَنَّأْتَهُ، وَإنْ أصَابَتْهُ مُصِيْبَةٌ عَزَّيْتَهُ، وَلا تَرْفَعُ بِنَاءَكَ فَوْقَ بِنَائِهِ فَتَسُدَّ عَلَيْهِ الرِّيْحَ

.
It is the right of the neighbor is that if he falls sick, you should go to visit him; if he dies, you should walk behind his coffin; if he asks you to give him a loan, you should loan him; if he gains something good, you congratulate him; if he is afflicted by a calamity, you should console him; do not raise your building above his and thus block the wind from reaching him.

حَقُّ الوَلَدِ عَلَى الوالِدِ أنْ يُعَلِّمَهُ الكِتابَةَ وَالسَّباحَةَ وَالرِّمايَةَ، وَأنْ لا يَرْزُقَهُ إلاّ طَيِّبَاً، وَأنْ يُزَوِّجَهُ اِذا بَلَغ

It is the right of the son on his father to teach him writing, swimming and targeting, that he gives him sustenance of only what is good, and that he marries him off when he comes of age.

حَقُّ الزَّوْجِ عَلَى الزَّوْجَةِ أنْ لا تَصُوْمَ يَوْمَاً واحِدَاً إلاّ بِاِذْنِهِ؛ إلاّ الفَرِيْضَةَ فَإِنْ فَعَلَتْ أثِمَتْ وَلَمْ يُتَقَبَّلْ مِنْها؛ وَأنْ لا تُعطِىَ مَنْ بَيْتِهِ شَيْئَاً اِلاّ بِاِذْنِهِ؛ فَإِنْ فَعَلَتْ كانَ لَهُ الأجْرُ؛ وَكانَ عَلَيْها الوِزْرُ؛ وَأنْ لا تَخْرُجَ مِنْ بَيْتِهِ اِلاّ بِاِذْنِهِ؛ فَإِنْ فَعَلَتْ لَعَنَها اللَّهُ وَمَلائِكَةُ الغَضَبِ حَتَّى تَتُوبَ أوْ تُراجِعَ؛ وَإنْ كانَ ظالِمَا

It is the right of the husband on the wife that she must not fast for a single day without his permission except with regard to what is obligatory; otherwise, she would be committing a sin and her fast will not be accepted. She must not give away anything from his house except with his permission; otherwise, the rewards will be due to him while the burden will be on her. She must not leave his house except with his permission; otherwise, Allah and His angels of wrath will curse her unless she repents or seeks his forgiveness even if he may be unfair.

حَقُ المَرْأَةِ عَلَى الزَّوْجِ أنْ يُطْعِمَها اِذا طَعِمَ؛ وَيَكْسُوها اِذا اكْتَسَى؛ وَلا يَضْرِبَ الوَجْهَ؛ وَلا يُقَبِّحَ؛ وَلا يَهْجُرَ إلاّ في البَيْتِ

Wine is the mother of abominations; the prayers of one who drinks it will not be accepted for forty days; so, if he dies while there is still in his stomach some of it, he dies the death of the days of jahiliyya (pre-Islamic period) .
.


أَرْبَعٌ حَقٌّ عَلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالى أَنْ لا يُدْخِلَهُمُ الْجَنَّةَ؛ وَلا يُذيقَهُمْ نَعيمَها: مُدْمِنُ خَمْرٍ؛ وَآكِلُ الرِّبا؛ وَآكِلُ مَالِ الْيَتِيْمِ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ؛ وَالْعَاقُّ لِوَالِدَيْه

Four types of people will never be permitted by Allah to enter Paradise, nor will He permit them to taste of its felicity, tipplers, usurers, seizers of orphan's properties, and those cursed by their parents.

اِذا زَنَا الْعَبْدُ خَرَجَ مِنْهُ الاِيْمَانُ فَكانَ عَلى رَأْسِهِ كَالظِلَّةِ؛ فَاِذا أَقْلَعَ رَجَعَ اِلَيْهِ

When a servant of Allah commits adultery, conviction (iman) comes out of him, staying above his head like a shade; if he quits doing it, it returns to him.

اربعة بيغضهم اللہ تعلى , البياع الحلاف والفقير المختال و الشيخ الزانى والامام الجائز

Four types of people are held by Allah in contempt: a seller who always swears (so people would believe him and buy his merchandise), a poor person who tries to show off, an aged man who commits adultery, and an unjust imam.

اِشْتَدَّ غَضَبُ اللَّهِ عَلَى امْرَأَةٍ أَدْخَلَتْ عَلى قَوْمٍ وَلَدَاً؛ لَيْسَ مِنْهُمْ؛ يَطَّلِعُ عَلى عَوْرَاتِهِمْ وَيُشْرِكُهُمْ في أَمْوَالِهِمْ

Allah's wrath intensified against a woman who introduced into a people a son who did not belong to them, one who looks at their faults while sharing their wealth.

ان الزناة ياتون تشتعل وجوههم نارا

Adulterers will come (on Judgment Day) with their faces burning.

ان السموت السبع والارضين السبع والجبال ليلعن الشيخ الزانى

The seven heavens, the seven earths and the mountains all curse the aged adulterer.
.

زِنَا العَيْنَيْنِ النَّظَر

Eyes' adultery is looking (at what is prohibited).

زِنَا اللِّسَانِ الكَلامُ

The tongue's adultery is speech.

الزِّنَا يُورِثُ الفَقْرُ

Adultery brings about poverty.

كُلُّ عَيْنٍ زَانِيَةٌ، وَالمَرْأةُ اِذا اسْتَعْطَرَتْ فَمَرَّتْ بِالمجْلِسِ فَهِىَ زَانِيَة

Every eye is an adulteress; if a woman wears perfume then passes by a place where men are sitting, she commits adultery.

المُقِيمُ عَلى الزِّنَا كَعَابِدِ وَثَنٍ

One who insists on committing adultery is akin to an idol worshipper.

ان اخوف ما اخاف على امتى عمل قوم لوط

The greatest fear I have about my nation is what the folks of Lot used to do (i.e. homosexuality).

امراة ولود احب اللہ تعالى من امراة حسناء لا تلد , انا مكاثر بكم الامم يوم القيامة

A woman who gives birth is more loved by Allah Almighty
than a good looking woman who does not give birth; I shall brag about your numbers to other nations on the Judgment Day.
.

ان الرجل اذا نظرة الى امراتة ونظرت


الية,


نظر اللہ تعالى اليهما



نظر



الرحمة

If a man looks at his woman (affectionately) and she looks at him (likewise), Allah Almighty will look at both of them with a
look of mercy.

تُنْكَحُ المَرْأَةُ لِاَرْبَعٍ: لِمَالِهَا، وَلِحَسَبِهَا؛ وَلِجَمَالِهَا؛ وَلِدِيْنِهَا؛ فَاظْفَرْ بِذاتِ الدِّيْنِ تَرِبَتْ يَدَاكَ

A woman is married for her faith, wealth and beauty; so, I commend the woman with the faith to you, may your hands be rubbed with dust!

كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مِنْ بَنِي آدَمَ سَيِّدٌ؛ فَالرَّجُلُ سَيِّدُ أهْلِهِ، وَالمَرْأَةُ سَيِّدَةُ بَيْتِهَ

Every individual from among the offspring of Adam is a master: The man is the master of his family, and the woman is the mistress of her home.

انِ اللہ تعالى يبغض الطلاق

Allah Almighty hates divorce.

تَزَوَّجُوْا وَلا تُطَلِّقُوْا؛ فَاِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُحِبُّ الذَّوَّاقِيْنَ وَلَا الذَّوَّاقَاتِ

Get married and do not divorce, for Allah does not like those men who run after their taste or the women who do the same.

تَزَوَّجُوْا وَلا تُطَلِّقُوْا فان الطلاق يتهر منة عرش

Get married and do not divorce, for divorce causes the 'Arsh (of the Almighty) to shake.

ما من حلال ابغض اللہ من الطلاق أَيُّمَا امْرَأَةٍ خَرَجَتْ مِنْ بَيْتِهَا بِغَيْرِ اِذْنِ زَوْجِهَا كانَتْ في سَخَطِ اللَّهِ تَعَالى حَتَّى تَرْجِعَ اِلى بَيْتِهَا أَوْ يَرْضَى عَنْهَا زَوْجُهَ

There is nothing permissible which Allah hates more than divorce. Ifa woman asks her husband for divorce without harm afflicting her, she will be banned from sniffing the aroma of Paradise (much less entering it).
