A famous companion by the name of a Buddha of the fatty
was one time sitting in the masjid. And he was remembering Allah subhanaw taala through supplication through vicar, saying Subhana Allah Al Hamdulillah some words of supplication words of praise.
So a man came into the masjid and sat next to him
and then they continued in this stage for a while they didn't really say anything.
Then after some time, with a lovely fatty looked at this person, and it would appear that they have they they know one another within fatty you look
Tell him and he said, in Latin Haiti Allah Fado Elisa Hiren, speaking good. They basically good upon good. Isn't that good? Basically to say what is good?
Isn't that a good thing?
Cool to dinner. So the man responded, he says, of course indeed. And that is correct. To say what is good
and adding upon that, that is goodness indeed.
Then he continued back, remembering Allah is trying to Allah and he didn't say anything more after that.
Sometime later, I'm presented with infatti
turned to his friend next to him and he said,
what's so cool to her? You don't mean him? Luxury Elisa, Quranic
isn't silence better than evil speech?
So this friend said, of course, indeed.
Then we'll continue. He said, what your lease was solid Hiren Meenal whadda, Li psychedelic, and E isn't sitting with a righteous person better than sitting by yourself alone. So this man said, of course. And then he, he completed and he said, well whether to hire on Minneapolis is Su la psychedelic. And yet, being alone by yourself is always better than being with someone that's evil. And the man said, of course,
brothers and sisters,
with a lovely fatty was one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, who was given these words of advice on the importance of staying quiet, and staying silent whenever needed. Without looking fatty fit. The famous companion and Pastor Salem was once told by the process ylim in which he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yeah,
shall I tempt? Oh, a Buddha, shall I tell you something that is easy to do, but it is extremely heavy on the scales of the Day of Judgment. And the Buddha did indeed Tell me a messenger of Allah, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him, one of those things was to stay quiet and to be silent.
According to researchers, brothers and sisters,
there's this false notion that has been spreading around across all cultures since the beginning of time. There's this assumption a gender stereotype that women speak more than men. And men obviously speak less than women.
But after careful research professors and psychologists, after serving groups of people and putting recorders that would turn on at specific intervals and record people of both genders, they discovered that women did not speak properly or they did not speak exponentially more than men. In fact, in fact, men and women spoke about the same number of words.
Maybe sometimes the women would speak maybe by 1000 words more, but he was quite a negligible.
This idea, this virtue of silence, and not speaking too much, is one of the characteristics of the prophets of the past. Whenever the evildoers would try to challenge the prophets and the messengers and they would spout out, spout off a lot of filth from their mouth, you would find that the prophets and the messengers they didn't always respond, because not every
claim or any statement requires a response.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was known
to be given the element or the beauty of fossa of having clear and eloquent speech, but it was not just having eloquent speech, but it was JOA Kellum the idea of
being concise and succinct. So the person Selim was able to convey a lot of meaning in just a few words.
But then sisters, Allah is trying to hold on to that tells us in the Quran, Marian filming poling. Illa de Hiraki Bonati
That every person
whatever they utter
Mayan film in Poland, whatever words that they uttered
except that there is an observer, in other words an angel and the second characteristic is attitude and that they are prepared to write down what the person is saying.
Allah subhanho wa Taala also tells us in the Quran we're in the alley Kamala Hatfield, Lena Curam and Cathy bean. Yeah, Allah Munna Mata followed.
And indeed over you, there are keepers. They are noble Quran, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala they are noble in the eyes of Allah, catchy being writing the angels that write down what we say, Yeah, Ala Moana Mata follow.
And they know what you do.
Brothers and sisters, to speak is to be is a characteristic of humans that we are social creatures. We want to talk express our ideas. However, how much of those ideas that come from our minds and from our tongues are those actual of benefit?
If you think deeply on the difference between our state in this world and in the next life, you find that one of the characteristics of the people of Jana is that paradise is very quiet.
What does Allah say in the Quran about the people of Jana LA is my own and fi her loved one well at a theme and Ill VLAN Salomon Salama
the people of Paradise will not hear local and local is a general word that refers to idle talk at the least, or lascivious and Ill speech bad speech, filthy speech, bad words, whatever.
One theme and and they will also not hear any sort of speech that brings about sin, such as backbiting, gossiping, talking about other people

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah
when Abdullah was one of the famous scholars of the past, and he
explained the famous Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, mankind will be law he will you will feel valuable for your on audio smooth, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day
then let him speak what is good or to stay silent? And even Abdul Rahim Allah, He explained the concept of valuable Hiren to speak what is good, he said when you say something good, obviously, that is like a prize that you win to say something that is beneficial at the right time of the right delivery.
Only a smart or to stay silent he characterize that as safety.
Conscious to protect yourself from any sort of sin.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said in looking at these three words that the pastor sallam said, Man samatha Naja. Whoever is silent, is indeed saved. Look, the processor limb only use three words. And we had to use about eight to nine words to convey these three words of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. staying silent is not always advised. In fact, staying silent can be prohibited, especially during times when falsehood pervades. And it abounds. Then if you see something that is wrong, when you see something that is evil, it is important for you to speak up. Unfortunately, we are living in a time where we tend to judge other people because they're not as
social as us. We see someone being quiet we think, maybe antisocial. Maybe it's someone on the spectrum. And we come up with all of these different accusations just because someone is quiet. May Allah subhanahu wa to Allah protect us.
Finally, brothers and sisters
to encourage one another
On the importance of silence and the beauty of silence.
I want to share with you three things very quickly.
It is not required to respond to everything out there, especially right now on social media. You see all this filth and foolishness, foolishness that is all over social media and over the news, it is not required for every single one of us to give a response.
Almost even at one time, he said
that Allah subhanho wa Taala has servants, that he places among the creation
and they destroy falsehood by ignoring it, especially if it's something not worth their time. They can, you can destroy falsehood by completely ignoring it.
Another element brothers and sisters, is to have a tocopherol and that is to be slightly unaware of what's going on. If you are the kind of husband that is at home looking at every single thing and what everyone is doing and what they're saying, and, and then you have to make a comment about it. You're not going to be silent, you're always going to be commenting on many, many things. And finally brothers and sisters, to help yourself to being silent. It is by not
digging up on other people's business, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Do not go after the secrets of your brother, for that is indeed forbidden in Allahumma Aikido saloon ala Nabi
