The advice of Luqman


This is very useful advice in which the Qur’an tells us about Luqman. Many other proverbs and words of advice were also narrated from him and some of these examples are quoted below as basic principles:


Imaam Ahmad recorded that Ibn ‘Umar (Radia-Allaahu ‘anhuma) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (Salla-Allaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

إِنَّ لُقْمَانَ الْحَكِيمَ كَان يَقُولُ : إِنَّ اللهَ إِذّا اسْتَوْدَعَ شَيْئًا حَفِظَهُ
“Luqman the wise used to say: ‘When something is entrusted to the care of Allaah, He protects it.’”

[Saheeh al-Jamie’ no. 1708]

It was narrated that As-Sari ibn Yahya said: “Luqman said to his son:

‘Wisdom puts the poor in the company of kings.’”

[Ad-Durr Al-Manthur 5:316]

Advise of Luqman
It was also narrated that ‘Awn ibn ‘Abdullah said: “Luqman said to his son:

‘O my son! When you come to a gathering of people, greet them with Salam, then sit at the edge of the group, and do not speak until you see that they have finished speaking. Then, if they remember Allaah, join them, but if they speak of anything else, then leave them and go to another group.’”

[Az-Zuhd by Ibn Al-Mubaarak 332]
