Guarding the Tongue

Guarding the Tongue

Contents > Guarding the Tongue

- As we mentioned earlier, the Imaan is comprised of conviction in the heart, sayings of the tongue and actions of the limbs. The tongue performs acts of worship that pleases Allah but can also commit grave sins that anger Allah. Verily, the obligation of guarding our tongue and taking great care in our speech is one of the most crucial for every Muslim. The Prophet (saw) said:

A person could say a word that pleases Allah without even to consider it to be important, then Allah will elevate him high in paradise because of it and a servant could say a word that will anger Allah without even to think it important, then he will go with it to the hellfire.
