[Speak good or remain silent]
“Anybody who believes in Allah and the Last Day should not harm his neighbor, and anybody who believes in Allah and the Last Day should entertain his guest generously and anybody who believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak of what is good or keep quiet. (i.e. abstain from all kinds of evil and dirty talk).” (Al-Bukhari)
The last part of the hadith is the encouragement from the prophet to speak what is good and beneficial. Simultaneously, it is a warning, cautioning us to be careful in what we say, lest we say something that is harmful or false.
Speaking good means speaking about good things. Why is it that we as people tend to speak so much about bad things? When we speak good, we automatically feel good, because our thoughts are attuned to the good.
The most important to digest is that as Muslims we don’t let our tongue hurt others. Be a caring Muslim. Who knows our silence from saying bad things will open up the hard hearts of others to get attracted to Islam.
