Just a few InshAllah i will post more

If Allah brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

A friend cannot be considered a friend until he is tested in three occasions: in time of need, behind your back, and after your death.
- Ali ibn abi Talib (radiAllah anhu)

Whoever is offered an apology from a fellow Muslim should accept it unless he knows that the person apologizing is being dishonest.
- Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam)

Cease to sin, because you will not meet Allah with anything [as valuable] as few sins.
- A'isha (radiAllahu anha)

The Muslim ummah is an unique ummah among the whole of mankind: Their Land is One, their War is One, their Peace is One, their Honor is One and their Trust is One.
- Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam)

Knowledge is understanding that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

Nobody Can Remove Hurt Except Allah. Even if someone tries to cause you any hurt, stay firm in your belief and remember that no one can cause you any pain if Allah does not desire it for you
"And if Allah touches you with hurt, there is none who can remove it but He; and if He intends any good for you, there is none who can keep back His favour; He brings it to whom He pleases of His servants; And He is the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
- Qur'an, surah Yunus; 10:107

Knowledge is of two kinds: that which is absorbed and that which is heard. And that which is heard does not profit if it is not absorbed.
- Ali ibn abi Talib (radiAllah anhu)

Being married forces you to fine tune those not-so-great-aspects of yourself and strive to be better. Love comes in here too; when you are in a loving relationship (and in love and loved); you have this amazing reservoir of energy within you that allows you to flourish and nurture. It brings out the best in you and makes you strive to be better because someone cares and loves you; and vice versa. It is kind of like how we instinctively react to another's perception of us, when they think well of us and believe in us, we want to do even better; but when they disparage us we will get defensive. Is it any wonder that our beloved prophet (saw) said that marriage is half of faith?

I will not serve God like a labourer, in expectation of my wages.
- Rabia al-Adawiya

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become character.
Watch your character, they become destiny.

The Quran reveals the wickedness in the heart of man, but also reveals the grace and mercy of Allah (swt).

Reputation is what people may say about you on your tombstone; character is what Allah has written about you in his books.

I am three persons: The person others think I am; the person I think I am; the person Allah knows I am.

Live so that if people get to know you, they will get to know Allah better.

Allah will not judge you for what you have done but for what you have refused to do.

Give Allah what's right, not what's left.

We don't change Allah's message His message changes us.

He who kneels before Allah can stand before anyone.
