Quotable Quotes

The sin which makes you sad and repentant is liked better than the good deed which turns you vain and conceited - (Sayyidina Ali ibn Abi Talib)

Humour Without Malice

Three people were praying salat in congregation. A man walks by and without knowing they are in salat says, "Assalamu Alaykum". One man in salat says "Waalaykum Assalam". The second person angrily says, "Astaghfirullah, you are not supposed to talk in salat." The third person praying says "Alhamdulillah, I didn't talk."

Hikmah

One who has faith in God and the Last Day, let him say something good or else remain silent. - Hadith
