  • One who keeps his own counsel keeps his affairs in his own hand. 

  • Fear him whom you hate. 

  • The wisest man is he who can account for his actions. 

  • Do not put off today's work till tomorrow. 

  • What regresses never progresses?

  • He who does not know evil will fall into it. 

  • When a man asks me a question, I know his intelligence.

  • Don't forget your own self while preaching to others. 

  • The less of the world, the freer you live. 

  • Avoidance of sin is lighter than the pain of remorse. 

  • If patience and gratitude had been two she camels, it would have mattered little on which I rode. May God have mercy on him who sends me my faults for a present!

  • During his Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah, Umar ibn Al-Khattab heard one of the camel drivers singing. People asked Umar ibn Al-Khattab as to why he did not stop the camel driver from singing. Umar ibn Al-Khattab replied, "Music was the camel driver's provision for a journey."
