Sir Hamilton
The rules, regulations and verdicts concerning women in Islam are clear, frank and open. Islam capitalizes on the complete care that should be given to the protection of a woman against anything that may harm her personally, or cause ill-fame to her reputation or character.

I do not fear for you poverty. What I fear is that the world might be extended to you with all its affluence and luxury as it was to the people before you, and that you might then vie with one another for it as they did, and so be destroyed by it as they were.

Their similitude is that of a man
Who kindled a fire;
When it lighted all around him,
God took away their light
And left them in utter darkness.
So, they could not see.
Deaf dumb, and blind,
They will not return (to the path).
Or (another similitude)
Is that of a rain-laden cloud
From the sky: in it are zones
Of darkness, and thunder and lightning:
They press their fingers in their ears
To keep out the stunning thunder—clap,
The while they are in terror of death.
But God is ever round
The rejecters of Faith!
The lightning all but snatches away
Their sight; every time the light
(Helps) them, they walk therein,
And when the darkness grows on them,
They stand still.
And if God willed, He could take away
Their faculty of hearing and seeing;
For God hath power over all things

Do not accompany except the one who his condition reminds you of Allah, or his statements direct you to Allah. They are the righteous so accompany them. If you accompany them you will be successful by the permission of Allah. And if you abandon them you may become weak, and perhaps the people of evil and the devils will overpower you. We ask Allah for safety and security.

Likening the affairs of the Afterlife to the affairs of the present life is just a matter of approximation in order to make things easier for people to comprehend; otherwise, one atom from the Afterlife is better than the whole earth and many other similar earths added to it.

Yasmin Mogahed
How could you feel worthless when God has honoured you by creating you and choosing you to be with Him, in this life and the next? You are worthy. You are worthy of love. You are worthy of respect. You haven’t failed. You’re beautiful. Only the beautiful can see beauty. Never doubt your beauty. Never doubt your worth. It’s not about how much you make, your grades, what people say or think. It’s about you and God. It’s about your heart. The blinding beauty of your heart.

Ibn Majah
Do not marry women because of their beauty; their beauty may spoil them. Do not marry them because of their money; their money may oppress them. But marry them because of their piety (din). And a slave girl, deaf, but pious is better.

Shaykh Sufyan Suri (May Allah shower His Mercy upon him)
When the night begins, an angel from beneath the Throne (of Allah) makes the proclamation that all the worshippers should wake up, so those who are granted Tawfiq (good fortune/capability) by Allah get up and start praying. In the middle of the night, a second angel makes the proclamation that all obedient and respectful slaves of Allah should get up. Thus they get up and continue to pray until Sehr (the last blessed part of the night). When it’s time for Sehr then a third angel makes the proclamation that all those who seek Allah’s forgiveness should get up. Thus they get up and seek Allah’s forgiveness. When it’s time for dawn, then a fourth angel makes the proclamation ‘O you the heedless ones! Get up [the day break has come]!’ Then these people get up from their beds like the dead will get up from their graves [upon resurrection on the Day of Judgment].

The Prophet said “O disciple, though you be bold,
Yet enter not into conflict with every foe.”
Within you is a Nimrod; enter not his fire
But if you must do so, first became an Abraham
If you are neither swimmer nor seaman
Cast not yourself into the sea out of self-conceit
A swimmer brings pearls from the deep sea
Yea, he plucks gain from the midst of perils
If the saints handle earth it becomes gold
If a sinner handles gold it turns to dust
Whereas the saints are well-pleasing to God
In his actions his hand is the hand of God
But the sinner’s hand is the hand of Satan and demons,
Because he is ensnared in falsity and fraud.

Our God, You have encouraged [people to] approach You by setting free what they have possessed (their slaves). Now we are Your slaves and You are the most entitled to bestow favour. Set us free. You have ordered us to give alms to our poor, and we are Your poor and You are the most entitled to extend [of Your bounty], therefore give alms to us. You have enjoined us to forgive all who do injustice to us; now we have done injustice to ourselves, and You are the most entitled to act generously; therefore, forgive us. Our Lord, forgive us, have mercy on us, You are our Master. Our Lord, grant us good [things] in this world as well as good in the world to come, and protect us from the torment of the Fire.

Can you picture yourself walking without feet? Should you take it lightly that you slumber soundly while misery hinders the sleep of many? Should you forget that you fill yourself with both delicious dishes and cool water while the pleasure of good food and drink is impossible for some, due to sickness and disease? Consider the faculties of hearing and seeing with which you have been endowed. Look at your healthy skin and be grateful that you have been saved from diseases that attack it. Reflect on your powers of reasoning and remember those that suffer from mental ailments.

Would you sell your ability to hear and see for the weight of Mount Uhud in gold, or your ability to speak for huge castles? You have been given abundant favors, yet you feign ignorance. Notwithstanding warm bread, cool water, easy sleep, and good health, you remain despondent and depressed. You think about what you do not have and are ungrateful for what you have been given. You are troubled by a loss in wealth, yet you have the key to happiness and many blessings. Contemplate and be thankful.

When Offering Condolences What Allah has taken belongs to Him and to Him belongs what He has given. With Him everything has a limited term (in this world), so be patient and seek reward from Allah.

Understand that nothing is nearer to you than your own self but you fail to do so. The person who does not know his own self and claims to know others, is like that pauper who cannot feed himself but professes to have the poor and the destitute of the city at his dining table. Such a claim is strange and silly.

Al-Qur’an 57:20
Bear in mind that the present life is just a game, a diversion, an attraction, a cause of boasting among you, of rivalry in wealth and children. It is like plants that spring up after the rain: their growth at first delights the sowers, but then you see them wither away, turn yellow, and become stubble. There is terrible punishment in the next life as well as forgiveness and approval from God; the life of this world is only an illusory pleasure.

By leaving your affairs to Allah, by depending upon Him, by trusting in His promise, by being pleased with His decree, by thinking favorably of Him, and by waiting patiently for His help, you reap some of the greater fruits of faith and display the more prominent characteristics of the believer. When you incorporate these qualities into your character, you will be at peace concerning the future, because you will depend on your Lord for everything. As a result, you will find care, help, protection, and victory.

Know that it is the love of fame that is blameworthy. As for fame and celebrity in themselves, they can be either praiseworthy or blameworthy. When the intention is to exalt oneself and disdain others, it is blameworthy, but when it is to guide and benefit them, it is undoubtedly praiseworthy and deserving of recompense.
