Gems from Prophet Muhammad

A man said, “O Prophet of God! Which is the best (part) of Islam?” He said, “That you give food (to the hungry), and extend greetings to all whom you know and whom you know not.”

A Perfect Muslim is he from whose tongue and hands mankind is safe, and a Muhajir is he who flees from what God has forgiven. (Those companions of Prophet Muhammed who fled from Mecca and went into exile with him were called Muhajir.)

The greatest enemies of God are those who entered into Islam, and do acts of infidelity, and who without cause, shed the blood of men.

God’s kindness towards His creatures is more than a mother’s towards her babe.

Adore God as you would if you saw Him: for, if you see Him not, He sees you.

God is a unity, and likes unity.

Go in quest of knowledge even unto China, i.e. even unto ‘edge of earth.’

He who knows his own self knows God.

God enjoins you to treat women well, for they are your mothers, daughters, and aunts.

Do not exceed bounds in praising me; I am only the Lord’s servant; then call me the servant of God and His messenger.

The most excellent Jihad (Holy War) is that for the conquest of self.
