Website Review: Great Muslim Quotes – Inspiration from the Past & Present

Published

By Uzair Sarmast

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved reading inspirational quotes. Quotes are particularly appealing because they’re often expressions of universal truths and lifetimes of wisdom delivered in memorable packages of concise, thought-provoking statements. And more recently, in the realm of social media, quotes have become a way of expressing our feelings through the ornate speech of a credible figure. And the only thing better than quotes, are quotes that remind you of Allah [SWT] and increase your eman.

Enter GreatMuslimQuotes.com, an online resource for immersing yourself in the timeless wisdom of our pious predecessors. The site features an increasingly massive collection of quotes from a wide range of well-known (and lesser-known) scholars and worshipers on practically any topic you can think of. In addition to being a great place to find inspiration, I’ve found the website to be an excellent resource for preparing khutbahs or halaqas; nothing like having a memorable statement from Abu Bakr [ra] or al-Hasan al-Basri [rah] to drive your point home.

The team behind the project amasses quotes from both English and Arabic books complete with references to where they read the quote, as well as to the original sources when available. English-speaking audiences will especially find Great Muslim Quotes valuable because while there have been books in Arabic with Islamic quotes, such resources have been greatly lacking in English until now. And although other websites may have a page with Islamic quotes, no other resource is nearly as large, organized and dedicated as Great Muslim Quotes. Furthermore, the weekly updates make the website a fresh stream of continuous inspiration.

The website has a clean design, and user-friendly functionality. In addition to browsing quotes by most recent updates, readers have the ability to search the vast collection by topic, author and keyword. The integrated social media tools allow you to easily share quotes and inspire your friends with the click of a button. The best part is that the website is completely free with no registration or email address required to benefit; simply go to the website, and get inspired!
