THE QURAN and Sayings of Prophet Muhammad are the source of Islamic law, values and
traditions. They offer timeless wisdom for lasting
community which The Wisdom Fund strives to apply to contemporary issues.
Our selection of the Sayings is from The
Sayings of Muhammad by Sir Abdullah
Suhrawardy (1882-1935) founder of the Pan-Islamic Society of London.
Thousands of sayings have been attributed to The Prophet. Some are accepted as
authentic; some traced to The Prophet's companions; some are the subject of
debate. The serious scholar of Islam may wish to examine The Quran, and other
sources for the Sayings (hadith), in our Activists' Library.
Index to Sayings
An excellent pattern have ye in the Messenger of God. -- The Quran, XXXIII:21
In God's Name, the Merciful, the Compassionate
According to Abu Daud these four Sayings of The Prophet contain the summary of Islamic law (The
Sayings of Muhammad).
- Actions will be judged according to intentions.
- The proof of a Muslim's sincerity is that he payeth no heed to that which is not his business.
- No man is a true believer unless he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.
- That which is lawful is clear, and that which is unlawful likewise, but there are certain doubtful things between the two from which it is well to abstain.
