Islamic quotes immediately strike a chord with Muslims as these motivational phrases automatically connect with a Muslim’s belief on their purpose of existence in this world.
Generally speaking quotes can motivate you to do positive things in your life on a daily basis. Learned men study and understand deeper meanings of life and its surroundings, this enables them to make informed decisions and make judgments with enlightened thought and wisdom.
Famous quotes can be found in various literature from all ages, the Companions of the Prophet (saw) had the best intellect and they trained their disposition (nafsiyyah) to be extremely Islamic i.e. adhere to halal and haram in all aspects of their lives very strictly!
There are thousands of quotes of the Prophet Muhammad (saw) in the Sahih Collections as ahadith. His companions also said exceptional quotes so that humans can easily understand and implement them immediately in their lives to be more God conscious (have Taqwa).
Famous or not, Islamic Quotes should have an effect in your lives so that it makes you more Islamic i.e. be more God conscious (have Taqwa). It shouldn’t be something that is taken lightly as they were never meant to be used in a passive way.
