Safeguarding the Tongue

Rasoolullaah said:

When the son of Aadam gets up in the morning all the limbs humble
themselves before the tongue and say: Have taqwa of Allaah for our
sake, for we are dependant on you, If you are straight/upright, we are
straight and If you are crooked, we are crooked. Hasan – narrated by
at-Tirmidhee, lbn Khuzaymah and Ibn Hibbaan from Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree
marfoo’aan and authenticated by al-Albaanee in (( Saheeh ul-Jaami’)) [351]

Rasoolullaah said:

If anyone guarantees me whats between his jaws and between his
legs, I shall guarantee him Jannah Saheeh – narrated by al-Bukhaaree
from Sahl lbn Sa’d marfoo’aan

He was asked as to what thing brings people into al-Jannah the most
and he said: Taqwaa of Allaah and good character. Then he was asked as
to what thing brings people into the Fire the most and he said : The
mouth and the private-parts. Hasan lsnaad – narratated by at-Tirmidhee
[20041. Ibn Maajah [42461, Ahmad 12/29 1, 392, 4421, Ibin Hibbaan [
1923 – al-Mawaarid], al- Baghawee In ((Shah us-Sunnah )) 113179-801
and others, and It was authenticated by al Albaanee in (( as-Saheehah
)) [977] – from Abu Hurayrah marfoo’aan.

In a lengthy hadeeth, the Rasoolullaah said:

Shall I not tell you about the peak of the matter, Its pillar and
Its top-most part. I said: Yes, O Rasoolullaah. He said: The peak of
the matter Is Islaam, the pillar Is salaah; and Its top-most part is
Jihaad. Then he said: Shall I not tell you of the controlling of all
that? I said: Yes, O Rasoolullaah, and he took hold of his tongue and
said: Restrain this. I said: O, Nabee of Allaah, will what we say be
held against us ? He said : May your mother be berieved of you, O
Mu’aadh ! Is there anything which topples people on their faces – or
he said : On their noses – Into Hell-Fire other than the harvests of
their tongues Saheeh – narrated by at-Tirmidhee 121 101, Ibn Maajah
(39731 and Ahmad 15/23 11 from Mu’aadh – and the isnaad is hasan as al
Albaanee says in ((al-‘Irwaa’)) [413]

O Rasoolullaah! Inform me of something which I may hold fast to ? He said:

Say ! My Rabb Is Allaah and therafter be upright I said : O
Rasoolullaah I What is the thing that you fear most for me ? He took
hold of his tongue and said : This ! Saheeh – narrated by at-
Tirmidhee 11965]. Ibn Maajah [39721 and Ahmad [3/4131 from Sufyaan ibn
‘Abdullaah ath-Thaqafee

Rasoolullaah said:

Most of the sins of the Children of Aadam are from his tongue
Saheeh – narrated by at-Tabaraane 13/87/1-21, Abu’sh – Shaykh 12/101
and lbn ‘Asaakir (11389/151 and authenticated in ((as-Saheeah)) [534]

Rasoolullaah said:

There Is not a part of the body except that It complains to Allaah
because of the tongue – due to its haste / rashness Saheeh – narrated
by Abu Ya’laa (( Musnad )) [1/41. Ibn as-Sunnee [71. Ibn Abee’d-Dunyaa
in ((al-Warr’)) [Q.2/1651, Abu Nu’aym [209/1-2] and al-Bayhaqee in ((
ash-Shub )) [2/65/91 see al-Albaanee’s (( as-Saheehah )) [535]

The wounds of a sword may heal one day, But the wounds of the tongue –
they never may.
