Last year I ran a series of these with quotes from the Holy Quran (see those here), so for this Ramadan I decided to focus on Hadith instead – the reported sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). Hope you enjoy them!

Ramadan Hadith

What actions are most excellent? To gladden the heart of human beings, to feed the hungry, to help the afflicted, to lighten the sorrow of the sorrowful, and to remove the sufferings of the injured. (Related by Bukhari)

Ramadan Hadith

The most excellent Jihad is that for the conquest of self. (Bukhari)

Ramadan Hadith

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)

Ramadan Hadith

It is difficult for a man laden with riches to climb the steep path, that leads to bliss. (Muslim)

Ramadan Hadith

Keep yourselves far from envy; because it eats up and takes away good actions, like a fire eats up and burns wood. (Abu Dawud)

Ramadan Hadith

Verily, a man teaching his child manners is better than giving one bushel of grain in alms. (Muslim)

Ramadan Hadith

The best richness is the richness of the soul. (Bukhari)

Ramadan Hadith

Strive always to excel in virtue and truth. (Bukhari)

Ramadan Hadith

Be not like the hypocrite who, when he talks, tells lies; when he gives a promise, he breaks it; and when he is trusted, he proves dishonest. (Bukhari & Muslim)

Ramadan Hadith

An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black, nor a black has any superiority over a white, except by piety and good action. (from the Last Sermon)

Ramadan Hadith

Do you know what is better than fasting and prayer? Keeping peace and good relations between people, as quarrels and bad feelings destroy mankind. (Muslim & Bukhari)

Ramadan Hadith

When a thing disturbs the peace of your heart, give it up. (Abu Amama in Ahmad)

Ramadan Hadith

The best of you are those who are best to the women. (Tirmidhi)

Ramadan Hadith

Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth before you become old; your health, before you fall sick; your wealth, before you become poor; your free time before you become preoccupied, and your life, before your death. (Narrated by Ibn Abbas in the Mustadrak of Hakim & Musnad Imam Ahmad. Sahih)

Ramadan Hadith

When you are three persons, then two of you should not whisper excluding the third person, for that would grieve him. (Bukhari)

Ramadan Hadith

Feed the hungry, visit the sick, free the captives (Abu Musa)
