Do not be hasty in punishing (someone’s) sin, and leave (room) between the two (fault and punishment) for apology.

One who lacks intelligence has no decorum, and one who lacks determination has no magnanimity, and one who has no modesty has no religion.

Whoever fears Allah, He paves for him a path of salvation out of the trials, and directs him in his affairs, and facilitates his (path) of guidance. And makes his proof successful. And enlightens his face, and grants him his desires. He is with those upon whom Allah has bestowed His favors from among the Prophets, The Truthful, the Martyrs and the Righteous, and an excellent company is they.

Piety is the gateway to all repentance, and the principal of all wisdom, and the distinction of all deeds.

O’ Son of Adam, abstain from the unlawful and you will be a worshiper, and be content with what Allah has predestined for you, you will be sufficient, be benevolent to those who take up proximity in your neighborhood, you will be a Muslim.

The most preferable adornment is graceful manners.

The best wealth is contentment and the worst poverty is humility.

Whoever relies on the excellence of Allah’s choices, doesn’t wish to be in other than the situation that Allah has chosen for him.

The height of intelligence is associating with people amicably.

Clemency is suppression of anger and self-restraint.

Generosity is giving in prosperity and adversity.

Put what you seek from this world, but you know is unattainable, in the same rank as that which does not cross your mind.

I wonder at a person who ponders over the things that he eats, how he does not ponder over his reasoning. He preserves his stomach from that which harms him, yet deposits in his breast that which is a cause for his destruction.

The annihilation of people lies in three things: Arrogance, Greed and envy. Arrogance causes destruction of the religion and because of it Satan was cursed, and Greed is the enemy of one’s soul, and because of it Adam was expelled from Paradise, and envy is the guide to wickedness, and because of it Qabil killed Habil.
