True freedom

Freedom is for the intellect to be free, not for the soul to be free; for when the intellect becomes free it leads to guidance, but when the soul becomes free it leads to evil whims and desires.

الحريّة أن يتحرر العقل، لا أن تتحرر النفس، فإن العقل إذا تحرر قاد إلى الهدى، والنفس إذا تحررت قادت إلى الهوى

Sh Tarefe

The tongue

الكذب ركن الظلم، والصدق أساس العدل، الكذب خصلة مذمومة في الفطرة، وفي كل شرعة

Sh Tarefe


The envious one is he who thinks that his good traits will not become prominent except by making prominent the bad traits of others, whereas the honest one does not consider that the good of others prevents his own good from becoming prominent; the sun shining does not require the moon to set.

الحاسد من يظن أن محاسنه لا تظهر إلا بإظهار مساوىء غيره، والصادق لا يرى أن فضل غيره يمنع من ظهور فضله، فضياء الشمس لا يحتاج إلى مغيب القمر

Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you should be within towers of lofty construction.

Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you should be within towers of lofty construction. But if good comes to them, they say, «This is from Allah «; and if evil befalls them, they say, «This is from you.» Say, «All are from Allah .» So what is with those people that they can hardly understand any statement? 6 more words

Backbiting and gossip.

Ghībah (backbiting) may occur from the slips and mistakes of some righteous people, but namīmah (gossip) does not occur from a righteous person even from the slips of his tongue.

الغيبة قد تقعُ من فلَتاتِ بعض الصالِحِينَ وزلاتهم؛ ولكنّ النميمة لا تقعُ مِن صالح ولو من فلَتاتِ لِسَانِه
