As Salaamu 'alaykum and peace to all,

What Did Your Words Do Today? Inspirational Story about Saying Good Words




That day I found this interesting Irish proverb that said,

Little said is easy mended; nothing said needs no mending


Of course!

Isn't it true?

The more we are able to control our tongue, the less 'hot spots' we put ourselves into.

Which means, the less explaining we need to do to others of why we said the things we said, you agree?

And this proverb, immediately spark my memory of a very famous saying of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) when he said,

"Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak a good word or remain silent....." [Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Al Muslim]

SubhanAllah, isn't that an amazing advice?

So simple, yet the impact if I am able to execute would be fantastic, don't you think?

And I asked myself- how do I plan to follow his (saw) advice?

I believe that each time I want to open my mouth and say something, I should definitely must pause for a bit, and ask myself these questions...

'Is this thing I want to say a good thing, or other wise? Is it backbiting? Or is it slander? Is it the truth or false? How sure am I of the 'facts' and 'information' that I want to spill out and share with others? Is there any benefit to what I am about to say, or pure crap?!'

Wow, that sure are a lot of questions to ask before I can talk, right?

But you know something, my friends?

If, and only if, we can do that and take care of our words, Allah has promised us something wonderful.

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): "O you who believe! Fear Allah and speak a word that is right. He will set right for you your deeds and forgive you your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has certainly attained a great achievement."� [Surah Al-Ahzab: 70-71]

SubhanAllah!

Fantastic, isn't it?

By taking care and guarding our words, Allah has promised us that He will set right for us our deeds, and forgive our sins, my brothers and sisters!

Do I want Allah to set right my deeds?

Of course I do!

Do I want Allah to forgive me of my sins?

Absolutely!

What do you think, my friends?

Do you think you want them too?



So, let us set today's target as to pause for a second, and evaluate our thoughts before spilling them out, agree?

Lets!
