Watch Your Words

image, picture, harsh words
Allah says:
"Not a word does one utter, except that there is an (angel) Watching, Ready to record it."  
Surah Qaf : Ayat 18

On the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him), the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak good things or keep silent.
Abu Mosa Al-Ash’aree ((may Allah be pleased with him) said:
I said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah Which of the Muslims is best?’ He (Peace Be Upon Him) said:
"He whose tongue and hand the Muslims are safe from." 
[Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim]

Words can HURT or HEAL... What did yours do today?

What we say has the ability to create situations, emotions, and thoughts in others. Kind words help people and make them your friends, negative words hurt - sometimes for a very long time. Tongue determine our attitude, personality and thinking. Sweetness and truthness of tongue provide you the shadow of life and bitterness and falsehood of tongue leave you alone in scorching beam of life. 

Our tongues are like double-edges swords. They can work for us and against us, both in this world and the Hereafter.

"Flowers" are very soft, do not "touch" with hard hands. Similarly "feelings" are like soft flowers, do not touch them with harsh word.

Guard your tongues. We will be held accountable for what we say.  
Word can be uttered in a few seconds, yet its effects last a lifetime.

image, picture, harsh words
Cruel words that just hurt so deep they would leave me restless when, all what I wanted was to go to sleep the cruel words that were said to me left me feeling so hurt deep inside I just wanted to run away and hide and hoping that I would never be found. 

Harsh, and mean words we utter
When upset and feeling mad
Hurt those people we care about
Making them feel so bad

 Make your words as sweet as Honey, you never know when you'll have to eat them.

  8. Yes Asma,
    We have to be extra careful before we utter a word because a wrong word might hurt others.
    "Think before you speak" is enough to control a slip of tongue. Bad mouthing takes us straight to the HELLFIRE--GOD FORBID.
    Using one's tongue wisely is recommended to please Allah subhanhu wa taalaa.

  16. Words are so important and can make so much damage. When you realise it you tend to improve, as I am trying to keep silent when I am angry or not satisfied about something. It is hard but whenever I let go of the words I am full of regrets afterwards.
    Thanks for another wonderful post Asma. Hope you are keeping well.

  17. Those who can't control their tongue are most likely to be a better Sinner.

    So I say this "Ya Allah - Grant me the power to control my wishes, and the power to control what I think and what I say. The Power to keep my thought from turning bad."

    -Actually most of the times I fail at it but I hope someday I'll be able to keep myself quit. :')
