HOLD YOUR TONGUE
?The tongue is a small muscle, yet by the blessings of Allah, has amazing power. This muscle can never get tired. Can you imagine how much you use it? Now just imagine the amount of good or bad that can be produced from such a thing.
?For example, the tongue can give indications of the level of Eman in a person. The tongue can earn a person Jannah. In America, talk is cheap unless you talk to a lawyer. But in Islam talk is not cheap and it definitely is not free. Talk is something we must all account for.
? “When man wakes up in the morning each day, all parts of the body warn the tongue saying, ‘Fear Allah as regards us; for we are at your mercy; if you are upright, we will be upright and if you are crooked, we become crooked.” (Sunan Tirmidhi: Hadith No 2407)
