Imam Malik
May Allah have mercy on him
said:

" I have met people here in Madinah who had no faults of their own, but who spoke about other people's faults, so people found fault with them. I also met here those with many faults but who kept quiet about other people's fault, so other people kept quiet about theirs. "

al-Muntaqa; Volume 2 pg. 300

(bism1)

Imam Shafi rh.a said,"When one wishes to speak, one must first reflect, and if there is a clear interest to be served by speaking, one speaks, while if one doubts it, one remains silent until the advantage becomes apparent."
(Kitab al Adhkar- Nawawi)

Do not despair at poverty, but rather consider it your honour that He has privileged you with the station of the prophets and friends of Allah.

When the Sahaba's رضي الله عنه we're told 'Ittaqillah' (Fear Allah) their eyes would fill with tears. Today we treat it as an insult.

It is reported that Al-Ḥasan Al-Baṣrī - Allāh have mercy on him - said:

Verily, you will find the believer (muʾmin) consistent time after time, upon one way, showing the same face; [whereas] you will find the hypocrite (munāfiq) changing colors, trying to be like everyone around him, running with every wind.

Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-ʿIlm #1936

The Humble Elite

It is reported that Imām Al-Shāfʿee - Allāh have mercy on him - said, The loftiest in status are those who do not know their own status, and the most virtuous of them are those who do not know their own virtue.

Al-Dhahabī, Siyar ʾAʿlām Al-Nubalāʾ 10:99

It is reported that Wahb b. Munabbih - Allāh have mercy on him - used to say:

The believer mixes with others in order to learn, keeps quiet to keep safe (from sinning), speaks in order to understand, and secludes himself for the attainment (of good).

Ibn Abī Al-Dunyā, Al-'Uzlah article 99.

'Umar b. Al-Khattāb once entered upon Abū Bakr - Allāh be pleased with them both - and found him pulling at his tongue. He said, "Oh, what are you doing?" Abū Bakr replied, "It is this (i.e my speech) that has brought me so much trouble."

Mālik, Al-Muatta 2:988

It is reported that 'Umar b. Al-Khattāb - Allāh be pleased with him - said:
Do not be impressed by the twitter of an individual. But one who fulfils his duty and trust, and refrains from [transgressing against] the honor of people is the real man.

Al-Bayhaqī, Al-Sunan Al-Kubrā

Islam is not about we're better than you. Rather it is about let me show you something that is better for you.
