It is common nowadays to hear stories that are casually related to others with important information missing, spiced-up details, or misunderstood messages. The result is utter chaos and grave sin. It is said that a tongue has no bones, but it is strong enough to break a heart. We let our tongues wag loosely, but consider the following Ahadeeth:

Sufyan bin Abdullah (rtam) reported: “I asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah! Tell me of something to which I may remain steadfast.’ He said: ‘Say: My Rabb is Allah and then remain steadfast.’ Then I asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah! What do you fear about me the most?’ He took hold of his own tongue and said: ‘This.’” (Tirmidhi)

Sahl bin Sad (rtam) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sa) said: “Whosoever gives me a guarantee to safeguard what is between his jaws and what is between his legs, I shall guarantee him Jannah.” (Bukhari)

Abu Hurairah (rtam) reported that the Prophet (sa) said: “He who believes in Allah and the Last Day must either speak good or remain silent.” (Muslim)
