490 – “.تحقق مما يقال ، وليس الشخص الذي يتحدث”

“Tahaqaq mimaa yuqal , walays alshakhs aldhy yatahdath.”

“Examine what is said, not him who speaks.”

Arabic Proverb

Quote Number:  777

Source: Attributed

Source Notes: Translation done with Google Translate, if there are any errors I apologize. If you have any suggestions on how to translate this better please leave a comment, thank you! Note that the quote literally translates to “Check what is being said, not the person who is speaking.”
Also, I am recording all proverbs as attributed because there is little record of the origin of nearly all proverbs, and many of the ideas and concepts from proverbs are found in similar sayings in other languages and cultural traditions.
