We talk. Everyday. All the time. But often we forgot that many many times our Prophet s.a.w had reminded us to be very careful with our words, with what we say. And in today’s time, where the social media is our medium to vent and rant, it is even harder to be wary and thread our words carefully. We rarely think before we say or write anything. And it is easier to brag and show off more than ever, to be prideful when things get ‘viral’ and ‘likes’ and ‘followers’.
“The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said,
“The dearest and the closest of you to me on the Day of Resurrection will be those who are the best in behaviour; and the most hateful and the farthest from me on the Day of Judgement are those who talk uselessly, and put down others, and thise who show off when they talk.” [At-Tirmidhi book 18 hadith 228]
Na’udzubillahi min zalik.
“Oh Allah, beautify our speech, bless our tounges with beautiful words, with wisdom, with politeness, with kindness, and humbleness. And make us not among those who speak ill, indecent and disrespectful words that hurt others. Allahumma Amiin.”
