Islamic Quotes about Life – The Quest for Heart Softening.

In the Name of Allaah, Al-Baatin [The Intimate and Close].

Islamic quotes is one of the most interesting subject matters among the online Muslims Communities. Brothers and sisters are from time to time looking for Islaam related quotes on various concerns such as Paradise, Hellfire, the Day of Judgment, life, patience, parents, inspiration, good deeds, death, worship, knowledge, character, marriage, charity, and many other concerns that are not at all possible to list in this article. However, one of the most commonly sought quotes are Islamic quotes about life.

Basically, reliable Islaam related quotes are quotes from the Holy Qur-aan, authentic Ahaadeeth, and sayings of the great righteous scholars of Islaam. It is not every so called Islamic quotes that a Muslim or Muslimah could rely upon. Any quote that is not in accordance with the Holy Qur-aan, authentic Ahaadeeth and the understanding of the pious predecessors of Islaam (that is, the Prophet’s – Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam – companions and their true followers) could not be regarded as an Islamic quote. One of the ways that a Muslim could become highly versed in Islamic quotes is by being a good reader of authentic Islamic books. The more a Muslim man or woman becomes versed in reading reliable Islamic books, the more he or she becomes versed in authentic Islam related quotes on various concerns.

One of the main targets of the Ummah in looking for Islamic quotes is to get themselves inspired in humbling themselves or softening their hearts towards the Creator – Allaah (Subhaanahu wata ‘aalaa). This is one of the reasons why Islaam related quotes about life is very common among the searches of brothers and sisters. This is because at one time or the other, we do find ourselves being hard hearted towards the requirements of the Deen. The sensation of weak faith has grown to become incredibly prevalent among Muslims, and a large number of people complain regarding the hardness of their hearts and minds. Frequently we hear the words, “I really feel hardness within my heart,” “I don’t find any pleasure in worship,” “I feel that my religious beliefs has hit rock bottom,” “Reading Qur’aan doesn’t move me,” “I fall into sin now very easily.” The consequences of this affliction are visible in many individuals, and this problem is the main cause of every single disaster and difficulty.

As a result, Muslims want Islamic quotes about life to inspire them in overcoming the deceptions of the life of this world which are making them to be neglectful of their primary assignment in this world, that is, to properly worship the Lord of the world – Allaah (Subhaanahu Wata ‘aalaa) – in all aspects of their daily lives. This had also led to searches for Islamic SMS which is mainly employed to remind one another about the Religion since Allaah has commanded the Muslims to help one another on good deeds and fear of Allaah, and not help one another on sins and enmity.

In conclusion, authentic Islamic quotes about life are one of the ways a Muslim could utilize to soften his or her heart towards the Lord of all that exist – Allaah (Subhaanahu Wata ‘aala) – in being able to worship Him in all areas of his or her everyday life activities.

The following is a list of some Islamic quotes taken from the Holy Qur’aan, authentic Ahaadeeth and words of Muslim wise men that could be used as Islamic SMS:
