Islamic Quotations for Reflection: O Allah, make my silence reflection…

O Allah, make my silence reflection. May I learn when I look. Make my tongue repeat Your Names. May I always remember You.
Talha ibn Musarrif
Whoever surrenders his heart to Allah alone and concentrates on this, bright sparks of wisdom will rise from his heart and pour from his tongue.
Yahya ibn Muadh

Hadith: There are two blessings…

Narrated Ibn Abbas: Allah’s Messenger said, “There are two blessings in which many people incur loss. (They are) health and free time (for doing good).” (Al-Bukhari )

Hadith: It is from the excellence of (a believer’s) Islam…

Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah’s Messenger said, “It is from the excellence of (a believer’s) Islam that he should abandon that which is of no benefit to him (in this world and the Hereafter).” (At- Tirmidhi )

Hadith: Allah will make him self-sufficient…

Narrated Abû Sa’id Al-Khudri :

Certain people of the Ansâr begged of Allah’s Messenger and he gave them; then they again begged of him and he gave them until all what he possessed was exhausted. Then the Prophet said, “Whatever wealth I have, I will not withhold from you. Whosoever would be chaste and modest; Allah will keep him chaste and modest and whosoever would seek self-sufficiency, Allah will make him self-sufficient; and whosoever would be patient, Allah will give him patience, and no one is granted a gift better and more comprehensive than patience.” (Al-Bukhâri and Muslim)

Hadith: Cleanliness is half of faith…

Narrated Abû Mâlik Al-Hârith bin Âsim Al-Ash’ari: Allah’s Messenger said, “Cleanliness is half of Faith; the utterance of Allah (Al-hamdu lillah – all praise belongs to Allah) fills the scales of good actions; the utterance of Allah (Glory be to Allah and all praise belongs to Allah) fills the space between the heavens and the earth, and Salât (prayer) is light; and charity is the proof of Faith; and endurance is a light, and the Qur’ân is a plea in your favour or against you. Every person begins the morning ready to strike a deal with his soul as a stake; he either ransoms it or puts it into perdition.” (Muslim)

Hadiths: Allah looks not at your figures…

Narrated Abû Hurairah : Allah’s Messenger said, “Allah looks not at your figures, nor at your outward appearance but He looks at your hearts and deeds.”(Muslim)

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbâs and Anas bin Mâlik: Allah’s Messenger said, “If a son of man had a valley full of gold, he would desire to have two. Nothing can fill his mouth except the earth (of the grave). Allah turns with mercy to him who turns to Him in repentance.” (Al-Bukhâri and Muslim)

Selections from the Quran: Indeed they are even more astray!

Do you suppose that most of them hear or understand?

They are just like cattle.
Indeed they are even more astray! – (Quran 25: 44)
