      The tongue, the language and the mind etc... are great gifts of Allah(SWT-Subhana Wa Ta'laa). These gifts that Allah has given to man makes him superior to all other creatures. Islam has given special attention to speech, its style, its etiquette and rules, because the talk that comes out from a man's mouth discloses  his intellectual level and moral nature. Moreove, the etiquette of speech in a group reveals its general standard, and shows the standard of decency in their environment.
        Truthful, clean and decent conversation impresses both friends and foes (enemies, rivals, opponents), and its sweet fruits can be readily enjoyed. It guards love between friends.


"Say (0 Prophet!) to my slaves to speak which is kindlier. Verily, the devil sows discord among them. Verily, the devil is for man an open enemy."  (Surah Bani Israil 17:53)

 "Not a word is said except that there is a guard (close observer) by him ready to record it."
[Surah Qaf (50:18]

On a Day when their tongues, their hands and their feet will bear witness against them as to what they used to do.
(Surah AlNur 24:24)

O you who believe, fear Allah and be with those who are true.
(Surah At-Tauba 9:119)

          Narrated Abu Musa (RA): Some people asked Allah's Apostle, "Whose
Islam is the best? i.e. (Who is a very good Muslim)?" He replied, "One who avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and hands."

"Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should not hurt his neighbor and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should serve his guest  generously and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should talk what is good or keep quiet."

A wrong word uttered by tongue the person may slip into hell fire

Which is among the dangerous acts that displeases Allah (SWT)?
Narrated Abu Huraira(RA): The Prophet (pbh); said, "A slave (of Allah) may utter a word which pleases Allah without giving it much importance, and because of that Allah will raise him to degrees (of reward): a slave (of Allah(SWT) may utter a word (carelessly) which displeases Allah(SWT) without thinking of its gravity and because of that he will be thrown into the Hell- Fire."
(Bukhari 8:485 )

 "O Allah, I seek refuge with you from all sins, and from being in debt."
 Someone said, O Allah's Apostle! (I see you) very often you seek refuge with Allah(SWT) from being in debt. He replied, "If a person is in debt, he tells lies when he speaks, and breaks his promises when he promises."
(Bukhari 3:582 ; Muslim 1:412)
