Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Prophet (PBUH) saying, "
A person utters
a word thoughtlessly (i.e., without thinking about its being good or not) and, as a result of this, he will fall down into
the fire of Hell deeper than the distance between the east and the west
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith shows the disadvantages which can be caused by the improper use of the tongue. It is,
therefore, essential that one should think before he speaks.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "
A man utters a word
pleasing to Allah without considering it of any significance for which Allah exalts his ranks (in Jannah); another one
speaks a word displeasing to Allah without considering it of any importance, and for this reason he will sink down
into Hell.

Abu 'Abdur-Rahman Bilal bin Al-Harith Al-Muzani (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
A man speaks a good word without knowing its worth, Allah records for him His
Good Pleasure till the day he will meet Him; and a man utters an evil word without realizing its importance, Allah
records for him His displeasure till the day he will meet Him
[Imam Malik and At-Tirmidhi].
This Hadith tells us a fact which can be observed in our everyday life. Sometimes a person utters a
good sentence which pleases an individual and he reforms himself or holds himself from doing something wrong.
Such a sentence or utterance is highly rewarded by Allah. Similarly, sometime a person utters a mischievous
sentence, the ruinous effects of which he does not realize. This utterance hurts someone's feelings and leads him to
sin and evil. Almighty Allah is displeased with such a person. The lesson that this Hadith has for us is that one
should strictly guard his speech and weigh his words to avoid Allah's Wrath.

Sufyan bin `Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I asked: "O Messenger of Allah! Tell me, of
something to which I may remain steadfast.'' He (PBUH) said, "
Say: My Rubb is Allah and then remain steadfast
Then I said: "O Messenger of Allah! What do you fear most about me?'' He took hold of his own tongue and said:
Faith in Allah and all His Attributes is the basis of all virtuous deeds. No act or deed is acceptable by
Allah without this faith, "and then remain steadfast'' means to comply with what Allah has ordained and to keep
away from what He has forbidden so that one can win over His Pleasure. Every Muslim is required to guard his
speech strictly because even the slightest carelessness on this account can cause Allah's displeasure.
