If patience and gratitude had been two she-camels, it would have mattered little on which I rode. (Hazrat Umar Farooq – radi Allahu anhu)
A person is not worthy of leadership in any capacity at all if he has never memorised or recited the Quran on a regular basis and is not familiar with the Hadith at a recognised level. This has to be so because all knowledge for the sincere seeker is totally bound within our Holy Book and the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). (Hazrat Junaid Baghdadi -radi Allahu anhu)
Sleep with the remembrance of death, and rise with the thought that you will not live long. (Hazrat Uwais al-Qarni radi Allahu anhu)
To sit in the company of pious people is better than doing good and to sit in the company of evil (immoral) people is worse than doing evil. (Hazrat Khwaja Ghareeb-un-Nawaaz radi Allahu anhu)
The company of a shameless man in this world will bring shame to you on the Day of Judgement. (Imam Shafi’i – radi Allahu anhu)
Do not regret the past and do not worry about the future. (Hazrat Dhun Nun Misri – radi Allahu anhu)
