Pearls of Wisdom....164

1. Anyone who makes the example of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) his rule in word and deed speaks with wisdom. [Othman al Hariri]

2. When a person conforms himself to the example of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), God illumines his heart with the light of His intimate knowledge. [Ibn Ata'Allah]

3. Prove the sincerity of your respect for the Qur'an by putting its teachings into practice, not by arguing about it. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]
