Do not be too hard, lest you be broken; do not be too soft, lest you be squeezed.
Do not share the knowledge with which you have been blessed with everyone in general, as you do with some people in particular; and know that there are some men in whom Allah, may He be glorified, has placed hidden secrets, which they are forbidden to reveal.
A poor man is like a foreigner in his own country.
Do for this life as if you live forever, do for the afterlife as if you die tomorrow.
Let me alone, and go in search of someone else.
Abstinence from sins is better than seeking help afterwards.
A man’s measure is his will.
I was not created to be occupied by eating delicious foods like tied up cattle.
People’s hearts are like wild animals. They attach their selves to those that love and train them.
To make one good action succeed another, is the perfection of goodness.
He who busies himself with things other than improvement of his own self becomes perplexed in darkness and entangled in ruin. His evil spirits immerse him deep in vices and make his bad actions seem handsome.
No one has ever suffered from his people as I have.
If poverty were a man, I would have slain him.
