Four things support the world: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valor of the brave.
Four characteristics constitute anyone who possesses them a sheer hypocrite, and anyone who possesses one of them possesses a characteristic of hypocrisy till he abandons it: when he is trusted he betrays his trust, when he talks he lies, when he makes a covenant he acts treacherously and when he quarrels he abuses.
One hour's meditation on the work of the Creator is better than seventy years of prayer
Verily your deeds will be brought back to you, as if you yourself were the creator of your own punishment.
Women are the twin halves of men
There are three signs of a hypocrite: when he speaks he speaks lies, when he makes a promise he breaks it, and when he is trusted he betrays his trust.
Philosophy is the stray camel of the faithful; take hold of it wherever ye come across it
Every good deed is charity whether you come to your brother's assistance or just greet him with a smile.
The greatest crimes are to associate another with God, to vex your father and mother, to murder your own species, to commit suicide, and to swear to lie.
No man is a true believer unless he desireth for his brother that which he desireth for himself
He who brings goods for sale is blessed with good fortune, but he who keeps them till the price rises is accursed.
Heaven liveth at the feet of mothers
Keep yourselves far from envy; it eateth up and taketh away good actions, like as fire eateth up and burneth wood
Cursed is this world and cursed is all that is in this world, except the remembrance of God and that which aideth thereto.
