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.
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.
If all the trees on earth were pens, and if there were seven oceans full of ink, they would not suffice to describe the wonders of the Almighty.
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.
Die before you die.
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.
If you walk toward Him, He comes to you running.
Do what you should do when you should do it. Refuse to do what you should not do. And when it is not clear, wait until you are sure.
Whoever knows himself knows God.
I who cannot be fit into universes upon universes, fit into the heart of the sincere believer.
The almighty Allah judges you neither by your countenance nor your wealth, but by the purity of your hearts and your deeds.
