plaque 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.
Abu Dawud compiled the third of the six "canonical" hadith collections recognized by Sunni Muslims.
