Bismillah irrahman irrahim

Assalamu alaykum

I was thinking whether to start a new thread or post it here, as you can see i went with the later . I want my fellow brothers and sisters to share their favourite sayings (not a hadith).

I will start inshaAllah, i read them some time ago so will be paraphrasing almost all of them.

It is attributed to Umar ibn alkhattab radhiAllah anh that he said, 'take account of your deeds before the account is taken from you'.

Another saying of Umar radhiAllah anh that i like is, he said that best reply/retaliation to an injustice done to you and a disobedience to Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala's command regarding you is, you sticking with the laws of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala and obeying Him to best of your capacity.

Abdul Qadir jilani rahimullah alyh said that salah of a person is not just his five times on prayer mat but real salah starts when he leaves that prayer mat.

Lastly i heard saeed anwar once saying this and i absolutely loved it, he said that to know how much you or anybody has la ilaha illallah in his/her heart, you need to see how much Muhammad-ur-rasoolullah you have outside in your actions.

wassalam

When you do some favour to any, Hide it and if someone does a favour to  you, let it know to others - Haz Ali RA.

Imam Ibn ul Qayyim al Jawziyyah 

 There are ten useless matters:
 
Knowledge that is not acted on

The deed that has neither sincerity nor is based on following the righteous examples of others

Money that is hoarded, as the owner neither enjoys it during this life nor obtains any reward for it in the Hereafter

The heart that is empty of love and longing for Allah, and of seeking closeness to Him

A body that does not obey and serve Allah

Loving Allah without following His orders or seeking His pleasure

Time that is not spent in expiating sins or seizing opportunities to do good

A mind that thinks about useless matters

Serving those who do not bring you close to Allah, nor benefit you in your life

Hoping and fearing whoever is under the authority of Allah and in His hand; while he cannot bring any benefit or harm to himself, nor death, nor life; nor can he resurrect himself.

However the greater of these matters are wasting the heart and wasting time. Wasting the heart is done by preferring this worldly life over the Hereafter, and wasting time is done by having incessant hope. Destruction occurs by following one's desires and having incessant hope, while all goodness is found in following the right path and preparing oneself to meet Allah.
 
How strange it is that when a servant of Allah has a [worldly] problem, he seeks help of Allah, but he never asks Allah to cure his heart before it dies of ignorance, neglect, fulfilling one's desires and being involved in innovations. Indeed, when the heart dies, he will never feel the significance or impact of his sins.

I am reminded of a story about Ali-Ibn-Abitalib. I paraphrase the story since I do not have the source with me. During a time of strife and open civil war a man asked him “How do I know what haq is when so many worthies disagree about it and are at war with each other?”. Ali responded “Do not judge haq by the worthies that follow it. First know what haq is, and then judge the men that follow it as worthy”.
