English - Islamic Golden Words


Golden words of Beloved Prophet ﷺ


All children of Adam are sinners, but the best among the sinners are those who constantly repent. 

If someone wants to know what position he enjoys in the eyes of God, he has only to look at what place he gives to God (in his heart and life).  


  • Three characteristics are the signs of a hypocrite, even if he fasts, performs the Prayers and claims that he is a Muslim: when he speaks, he lies; when he makes a promise, he breaks it; and when he is trusted, he betrays his trust.  

 Do not be little even the smallest act of kindness, even if it were no more than meeting your brother with a smiling and cheerful face.

Golden words of Hazrat Umar Farooq Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu


• To eat less is healthy, to speak less is wisdom, and to sleep less is worship.

• To speak less is wisdom, to eat less is healthy and to mingle less with the people is safe and serene.

• The one who steps back will not progress.

• Nothing is worst that avarice that destroys the mind, not even Alcohol.

• It is unbecoming of that person who sits with his hands folded and prays to ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala for sustenance. ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala does not rain down gold and silver from the heavens.

• It is not becoming of a Muslim to sit down and start praying for sustenance without attempting to earn it, he is well aware that gold and silver does not rain from the skies.

• If it wasn’t for the claim of knowledge of the unknown then I would say five people are from the dwellers of Paradise:

1. That family man who is poverty stricken but is patient

2. That women with whom her husband is happy and accepting.

3. That woman who forgives he husband’s duty of Mehr (Dowry approved by Muslim law)

4. That person with whom his parents are Happy

5. And that person who honestly repents from his sins

• Once a sheep was slaughtered and Syeduna ‘Umar al-Farooq Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho persistently asked his servant if he had first sent meat to his neighbor who was a Jew. The slave asked why you are asking the same question persistently. He answered that ALLAH SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala and his Rasūl Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam had constantly stressed the importance of neighbors therefore I too am persistent in stressing the same.

• Three things build love:

1. To make Salam (greeting)

2. To make space for a person in a gathering

3. To address a person in a respectable and good manner

♦ Intellect is the guide of the believer.

♦ The perfection of intellect is in three (things): Humbleness for Allah, Good certainty, and silence except for good.

♦ Certainly, knowledge is a lock and its key is the question.

♦ When the believer becomes angry, his anger should not take him out of the truth; and when he becomes satisfied, his satisfaction should not bring him into falsehood.

♦ One who cannot keep his tongue in control will always be disgraced.
