Assalamu Alaikum,

I figured if I have Islamic quotes, literature quotes, then it would be wrong if I didn’t touch on hadith and Quran (Quran will be a separate post, insha ‘Allah) I hope all the hadiths I am putting/will be putting are all sahih and correct. May God forgive me if I accidentally misquote one or screw up somewhere in sharing it with others. Remember, some hadiths might be self explanatory, but there are some that must be seen in the context which it was narrated.

I am still going through my hadith books and random notes. I plan on updating this one more frequently than other posts because I only went through four books and one notebook. But I hope you liked them and insha ‘Allah gained some barakah from them. I don’t know, but sometimes some of the hadiths I read sound so… real…. I mean, I know they are real, but I can feel them resonating within me. Maybe it is just me, but I hope we all become better Muslims! And for non Muslims out there, I hoped you liked them anyway. They are good pieces of advice, no matter which background of faith you are from. =) Update soon!
