honor

A Quote by Prophet Muhammad on body, disease, heart, honor, people, and religion

That which is lawful is plain and that which is unlawful is plain and between the two if them are doubtful matters about which not many people know. Thus he who avoids doubtful matters clears himself in regard to his religion and his honour, but he who falls into doubtful matters falls into that which is unlawful, like the shepherd who pastures around the sanctuary, all but grazing therein. Truly every king has a sanctuary, and truly Allah's sanctuary is His prohibitions. Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if diseased, all of it is diseased. Truly it is the heart.

Muhammad (570 - 632)

A Quote by Prophet Muhammad on belief, charity, day, god, guests, honor, and hospitality

He who believes in God and the Last Day should honour his guest. Provisions for the road are what will serve for a day and night; hospitality extends for three days; what goes beyond that is Sadqa (charity); and it is not allowable that a guest should stay till he makes himself encumbrance.

A Quote by Mrs. Delany on books, confusion, desires, honor, meetings, plants, questions, and work

Mrs. Delany describes her first meeting with the Queen thus: The King desired me to show the Queen one of my books of plants. She seated herself in the gallery; a table and the book laid before her. I kept my distance till she called me to ask some questions about the mosaic paper work, and as I stood before Her Majesty the King set a chair behind me. I turned with some confusion and hesitation on receiving so great an honour, when the Queen said- 'Mrs. Delany, sit down, sit down; it is not every lady that has a chair brought her by a King.' So I obeyed.

A Quote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra on earth, gifts, heaven, honor, liberty, and life

Liberty is one of the choicest gifts that heaven hath bestowed upon man, and exceeds in volume all the treasures which the earth contains within its bosom or the sea covers. Liberty, as well as honor, man ought to preserve at the hazard of his life for without it, life is insupportable.
