Faith and speech

Whoever believes in Allah and the last day should either speak good or remain silent…

This hadith of our Prophet (saw) seems to be so simple but in just a few words we have been given the ultimate secret of a peaceful and productive life in this life and salvation in the hereafter.

The real test is to be constantly alert about what you are about to say before you actually say it and decide whether it is really worth saying or not…?? A good question to ask yourself is : what good will these words bring to anybody?

Useless words are better left unsaid… because silence increases wisdom and respect… While mindless chatter makes you lose both…
