10 Prophet Muhammad Quotes: A Taste of Honey

by Daud

Sufism, also simply known as Islamic Spirituality, is one of the great mystical traditions of human history, and has produced countless numbers of enlightened beings throughout the centuries. It is a system of self-purification and development based on the life and character of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS). His was an example of how to live in perfect harmony and love with one’s Creator and His creation.

In this post I would like to give an introduction to his beautiful character through a few Prophet Muhammad quotes for the benefit of those not familiar with them, and also as a taste of honey for those who are.

Prophet Muhammad Quotes: Seek God

“Whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet him.”

Prophet Muhammad Quotes: Meditation

“There is a polish for everything that takes away rust; and the polish for the heart is the remembrance of Allah.”

Prophet Muhammad Quotes: The Golden Rule

“You will not enter paradise until you have faith. And you will not complete your faith until you love one another.”

Prophet Muhammad Quotes: Non-Attachment

“The worldly comforts are not for me. I am like a traveler, who takes rest under a tree in the shade and then goes on his way.”

Prophet Muhammad Quotes: Balance

“Conduct yourself in this world as if you are here to stay forever, and yet prepare for eternity as if you are to die tomorrow.”

Prophet Muhammad Quotes: Seek Excellence

“Strive always to excel in virtue and truth.”

Prophet Muhammad Quotes: Be Merciful

“Verily, Allah is compassionate and is fond of compassion, and He gives to the compassionate what He does not give to the harsh.”

Prophet Muhammad Quotes: True Wealth

“The best richness is the richness of the soul.”

Prophet Muhammad Quotes: Serve

“Who is the most favored of Allah? He from whom the greatest good comes to His creatures.”

Prophet Muhammad Quotes: The Way of Wisdom

“It is better to sit alone than in company with the bad, and it is better still to sit with the good than alone. It is better to speak to a seeker of knowledge than to remain silent, but silence is better than idle words.”

Prophet Muhammad Quotes, A Taste of Honey

The words and Way of the Holy Prophet (SAWS), which form the basis of Islamic Spirituality, are the keys to the highest form of personal growth and spiritual evolution. Through his example, humanity can learn to live in peace and harmony, to enjoy the sweetness and beauty of life, to have a taste of divine honey in this world.

I love all of these quotes.  Thank you for sharing.  Beautiful, indeed.  Makes me wonder how extremists can warp or misunderstand something so peaceful and comforting to the soul.

Ugh I posted about the Muslim cleric, who killed his 5 years old daughter. I will be upset if it turns to Muslim bashing. I am sure his religion had nothing to do with his crime. He is sick person...
