    Default Islamic Idioms

    A lot of English idioms have meanings which are compatible with Islam. Let me give you an example: early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise, i.e. go to bed early do you can get up for fajr and even tahajjud. See if anyone can think of any others.

    "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

    It's analogous to the hadith: "(A Muslim) is not a Mu'min until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself."

    I always thought of these as proverbs....lol. Arent idioms a whole diff thing?

    You can't take it with you when you die.

    In a Hasan hadith narrated by Ahmed and Tirmithi, the Prophet (SAAWS) said, “What have I got to do with the material world? The example of the material world and I is that of a traveler. Traveling in the afternoon heat, he stopped to rest under the shade of a tree for some moments. Then, he rose and left it.”

    Live And Let Live.

    Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Avoid suspicion, for suspicion is the gravest lie in talk and do not be inquisitive about one another and do not spy upon one another and do not feel envy with the other, and nurse no malice, and nurse no aversion and hostility against one another. And be fellow-brothers and servants of Allah.

    The Best Things in Life are Free.

    Abu Dharr, radiyallahu 'anhu, reported that some of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, said to him:

    "O Messenger of Allah, the rich have taken away all the rewards. They observe the prayer as we do, and they keep the fasts as we do, and they give sadaqah (charity) from their surplus riches." Upon this he (the Prophet) said: "Has Allah not prescribed for you (a course) by following which you can also do sadaqah? Verily in every tasbih (i.e. saying Subhanallah) there is a sadaqah, every takbir (i.e. saying Allahu Akbar) is a sadaqah, every tahmid (i.e. saying Alhamdulillah) is a sadaqah, every tahlil (i.e. saying Lailaha illallah) is a sadaqah, enjoining of good is a sadaqah, forbidding of evil is a sadaqah, and having sexual intercourse with your wife is a sadaqah. They (the Companions) said: "O Messenger of Allah, is there reward for him who satisfies his sexual passion among us?" He said: "Tell me, if he were to devote it to something forbidden, would it not be a sin on his part? Similarly, if he were to devote it to something lawful, he should have a reward."
