Excerpts from The Sayings of Muhammad, Compiled by Abdullah Al-Mamun Al-Suhrawardy

Shall I not inform you of a better act than fasting, alms, and prayers? Making peace between one another: enmity and malice tear up heavenly rewards by the roots.

He who trieth to remove the want of his brother, whether he be successful or not, God will forgive his sins.

Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave.

Say what is true, although it may be bitter and displeasing to people.

Do not exceed bounds in praising me, as the Christians do in praising Jesus, the son of Mary, by calling him God, and the Son of God; I am only the Lord’s servant; then call me the servant of God, and His messenger.

The ink of the scholar is more holy than the blood of the martyr.
