I think this really has to do with each of us here, especially the lesson to be learned.
Rasul Allah, sal Allah alayhi wa sallam, said, “Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day (of Judgment) should not harm his neighbor. Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should host his guest generously. And anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should say what is good or keep quiet.”
– Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 47
[Lessons from this Hadith]
Did you send out a bad mouthed email to someone recently? Did you post something in a chat room or forum that you shouldn’t have? You are Muslim, so make sure whatever comes out of your mouth is something that will bring you closer to Allah. If it’s not, then keep quiet. Test yourself, for the next 3 days, before you say anything, ask yourself, “Is this something good to say?”
