MJ's Top 10 Muslim Proverbs

A proverb is a simple and concrete saying, popularly known and repeated, that expresses a truth based on common sense or the practical experience of humanity, hardly ever confused with a local hip-hop artist. Here are some of my favourite Muslim proverbs, adapted from common ones. None will make it into popular culture.Please add yours to the comments section



  • Don't count your chickens before they're certified


  • One man's treasure is another man's zakat.


  • A chain is only as strong as its weakest narrator.


  •  Don't put all your eggs in one biryani dhegg.


  • Necessity is the mother of Tayammum.


  • If it ain't broke, don't fix it with a bid'ah


  • Actions speak louder than duas.


  • You can't make an omelette without saying bismillah.
