Muhammad Quotes


Muhammad (570 – 632), also rendered as Muhammed, is the central messenger in Islam, the receiver and transmitter of God’s message to mankind, as recorded in the Quran. At the age of eight he came under the care of his uncle, who he accompanied on Syrian trading journeys. When he was 40, Muhammad reported being visited by Gabriel in the mountain cave of Hira, and of receiving his first revelation. Three years later in 610 A.D. he started preaching these revelations publicly. According to Islamic doctrine he was a prophet sent to present and confirm the monotheistic teachings preached previously by Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets.

One Journey Quotations

Quotes by Muhammad…

A man should be so poor that he is not and has not a place for God to act in. To reserve a place would be to maintain distinctions. A man should be so disinterested and untrammeled that he does not know what God is doing in him.

Muhammad (570 – 632)

My servant does not cease to come near Me until I love him; and when I love him, I am the sight he sees with and the hearing he hears with and the hand he receives with and the foot he walks with.

Muhammad (570 – 632)

The Almighty created the angels and conferred reason upon them, and He created the beasts and conferred passion upon them, and He created man and conferred reason and passion both upon him. He whose reason prevails over his passion is higher than the angels, and he whose passion prevails over his reason is lower than the beasts.
