Words of Abu Bakar El Siddik

Abu Bakr, or El Siddik or Al-Siddiq, was the closest friend and companion of Muhammad and the first Muslim caliph. The quotations that follow have been attributed to him, and have become proverbial in their usage.
·         Death is the easiest of all things after it, and the hardest of all things before it.
·         Do not look down upon any Muslim, for even the most inferior believer is great in the eyes of God.
·         Every day, nay every moment, try to do some good deed.
·         God blesses him who helps his brother.
·         Good actions are a guard against the blows of adversity.
·         He who builds a masjid in the way of Allah, God will build a house for him in the paradise.
  • He who indulges in falsehood will find the paths of paradise shut to him.
  • If you expect the blessings of God, be good to His people.
  • In the matter of justice, all should be equal in your eyes.
  • Intentions count in your actions.
  • Jihad is obligatory for the Muslims.
  • Maybe a thing that you do not like is really in your interest. It is possible that a thing that you may desire may be against your interest.
  • Our abode in this world is transitory, our life therein is but a loan, our breaths are numbered and our indolence is manifest.
  • Solitude is better than the society of evil persons.
  • Run away from greatness and greatness will follow you.
  • The true believer is rewarded in every thing, even in affliction.
  • Without knowledge action is useless and knowledge without action is futile.

He who busies himself with things other than improvement of his own self becomes perplexed in darkness and entangled in ruin. His evil spirits immerse him deep in vices and make his bad actions seem handsome.

-Ali ibni Abi Talib
