The Prophet’s Sword

Peace, one and all…

In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

The Threshold Society pages give a really beautiful tradition of the Prophet (alayhi al-salatu wa al-salam), which in these days of violence and misunderstanding, are important to recall:

Inscribed on the hilt of the Prophet’s sword: ‘Forgive him who wrongs you; join him who cuts you off; do good to him who does evil to you, and speak the truth although it be against yourself.’

Ma’as salama,
Abdur Rahman
