-[There is a Hadith with similar wording to this]

and all those who have knowledge are asleep, except those who do good deeds;
and those who do good deeds are deceived, except those who are sincere;
and those who are sincere are always in a state of worry

-Imam Shaf'i (May Allah elevate his Rank)

Doing justice between two people is charity; and asisting a man upon his beast, and lifting his baggage is charity; and pure, comforting words are charity; and answering a questioner with mildness, is charity; and removing that which is an inconvenience to wayfarers, such as thorns and stones, is a charity.
-[There is a Hadith similar to this]

Your smiling in your brother's face is charity; and your exhorting man to virtuous deeds is charity; and your prohibiting the forbidden is charity; and your showing men the road, in the land in which they lose it, is charity; and your assisting the blind is charity.
- Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W)

My religion is like clouds dropping much rain; some of them falling on pure, favorable soil, cause grass to grow; some of them fall in hollows from which mankind are benefited, some fall on high lands from which benefit is not derived; then the two first are like the persons acquainted with the religion of God and instructing others; and the last like the person not regarding it nor accepting the right path.
- Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W)

Renewing peace between two aggrieved parties surpasses ritual praying, fasting, and almsgiving.

Renewing peace between two aggrieved parties surpasses ritual praying, fasting, and almsgiving.
-Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W); as reported by Abu Darda'a

Seek a true friend,
for a friend seeks the benefit of a friend,
Do good to the people for the sake of God
or for the peace of your own soul
that you may always see what is pure
and save your heart from the darkness of hate.

-Rumi, "Mathnawi
