“You will not enter paradise until you have faith; and you will not complete your faith till you love one another.” (Muslim) Having real Love for one another means wanting for others what you want for yourself. It means hurting when they hurt. It means caring for them more than yourself. How many of us can claim to have hearts that can do this? May Allah give us the means to achieve such a status.

It is difficult task to select a favorite saying of the Prophet Muhammad (saw) from amongst the befitting 'sayings'- yet to me I personally go for this one-   “The most excellent Jihad is that for the conquest of self.” (Bukhari). Always to struggle against himself in controlling his lust in this mundane world; with a tendency to sacrifice the worldly wants and desires and seek knowledge.

It is better to sit alone than in company with the bad; and it is better still to sit with the good than alone. It is better to speak to a seeker of knowledge than to remain silent; but silence is better than idle words.

Bukhari isn't just sayings of the prophets it's a mixture of sayings of the prophet and salaf. To the fake Muslim below, al Qaeda is a legitimate authority in power who was ousted just because of there Islamic call.

Excuse me, but is there a mistake in this one? “When two persons are together, two of them must not whisper to each other, without letting the third hear; because it would hurt him.” (Bukhari & Muslim)....shouldn't it read "When three"?

This is just a glimpse of every day life built in activities expected of us....Islam is no doubt a practical religion. Is it difficult to observe code of life? Not if one does not have a habit of constructed self-created problems. Leave ambiguities, doubts, suspicians aside if one cannot verify them. Avoid hatered, jealousy and other such negative complex feelings...for they hurt the vessel containing them (heart, mind, body) more than others. Live and let live, by observing self control and observing Haqooqs.

I am looking for a quote that I believe is one of the Prophet, "many things you will hear about me, whatever agrees with the Quran you should keep, whatever does not you should throw it up against the wall". I hope you can help me find where this is written. I surely would appreciate or correct me if I have the quote wrong! THANK YOU

@Rania El-BadryYou are correct.  The passage should read  < When two persons are together > or perhaps < When two persons are together with a third >  The way it is currently written or at least translated  is grammatically incorrect, and is illogical.
