Best quotes of Dr Moustafa Mahmoud

On the road of fate, you do not meet anything except yourself: Be a liar and lies will come to you, be a robber and crimes will surround you. Whatever path you take, your fate will be nothing other than your own image.

The bigger the goal is, the longer the road will be.

I do not believe that circumstances can truly force us to do to actions that go against our consciences.

Let every one of us return to his heart in an hour of solitude and ask his heart. His heart will lead him to the answer to everything, for God has placed in our hearts that compass that never errs, which is called the fitrah [God-inspired inner nature of humans] and instinct.

On earth there is enough to satisfy the needs of all people, but not enough to satisfy their greed.

Absolute truth, unmitigated virtue and pure goodness exist in the minds of the Sufis, the mad, and the dreamers, but they do not exist in our society that eats and drinks and falls ill and dies.

The true name of the chronic disease that has come to have a thousand and one names such as ulcers, ulcerative colitis, gout, diabetes, high blood pressure, liver disease, angina, insomnia and anxiety, is “the city”.

A good society is not made up of a group of zeroes, but a group of people, and a little individualism is necessary for men to be distinguishable from animals, and for society to be distinguishable from a herd.

People understand religion as if it is a group of commandments and prohibitions and laws containing punishments and the difference between the permissible and the prohibited, even though all of these are worldly matters. As for religion, it is something else, deeper, greater and farther than these.

The false revolutionary is the one who tries to change everything other than himself or herself.

Search for your faith when you are experiencing doubt and anxiety, and when you find your faith, you will find yourself.
