Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah. My brothers and sisters Mind your language, the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him reminds us that everything we utter is written down. And so he says to us, mankind, you know Billa, he will do mill theory for Leopold Hyeon only a smart, whoever truly believes in Allah. And in the Day of Judgment, meaning the last day should either say that which is good or remain silent, primarily because it will be held against you on the Day of Judgment, unless you seek the forgiveness of Allah. Now, many of us we follow the trends and the norms of societies and communities, these trends and norms if they happen to be good Alhamdulillah meaningful praises due

00:00:48--> 00:01:35

to Allah, but if they happen to be unacceptable, you can ignore them, you need to abstain. For example, the usage of the F word the B word the P word whatever else it may be, in a derogatory way abusive and so on. To be honest, we can do without it, it costs us nothing to cut it out of our vocab. Please be conscious of the words you utter. I am saying this because it will help me it will help you it will help all of us on the Day of Judgment. And primarily if we were to cleanse our language we earn a reward with Allah subhanho wa Taala because we have definitely maintained the self respect and dignity to begin with. And secondly, we will earn the blessings of Allah, what is

00:01:35--> 00:02:21

known as Baraka. And so this Baraka that descends, and comes falls upon us will be felt in all our affairs, in our health, in our wealth in our dealings in our sustenance in our Deen and dunya, meaning your spirituality, religion, your worldly matters and affairs and everything else, your children, your siblings, your offspring, your family members, your household, your movements, your earnings, everything because your language was always clean you only uttered good words and good words are the words of praise to Allah subhanho wa Taala Alhamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Masha, Allah Subhana Allah. But what we need to know is to stay away from bad

00:02:21--> 00:03:10

language and swear words. Literally swear words, the F word is being used will lie My beloved children who are listening to me today. And the teenagers, even the adults, we use this word simply because we want to sound cool, we want to fit in, we say it, we type it, we tweet it, we use it on social media, we video it, this is not good. It actually snatches away the blessings then we're wondering why we're feeling so you know, difficult negative, whatever else it may be anxiety and so many other things. One of the reasons is because we don't use good language, we don't have self respect. We don't carry ourselves with dignity. Use good words, mind your language. So panela

00:03:10--> 00:03:53

imagine arriving on the Day of Judgment, all your books are spread in front of you. And all you see is every little while there's an F and a B and so on, and a P and the Zed and the U and an L and a W and all these words Subhanallah that are derogatory and bad, demeaning, abusive, vulgar, to say the least. And you say I was just joking about it. We don't joke about vulgar words. And even if the trends happen to be that people are saying these words, we don't need to you can do away with it. And you should. My brothers and sisters, if you don't want the blessings to be snatched away, please polish your language a little bit. When I say polish, I mean, take out the bad words, even if it's

00:03:53--> 00:04:38

jokingly or to your friends, remove them, replace them with good words. And this is actually the bare minimum before you even start declaring the praise of Allah. How do you expect the acceptance to say good words and to read the Koran and to declare the praise of Allah when your tongue is filthy and dirty with all sorts of swear words throughout the day? Somehow I'm not joking or not joking. Let's cut it out my brothers and sisters, I promise you, you will taste great blessings and Baraka in all your affairs. Simply because you've cleansed your tongue. Man can I mean Oh Billa he will do me a favor. For Leah coherent only a smart, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day

00:04:38--> 00:04:58

should utter that which is beneficial, which is good or remain silent. May Allah forgive our shortcomings and make us more conscious of what we utter. Help us eradicate the bad words and help us increase good and good words. I mean, sallAllahu wasallam Allah and Amina Mohammed was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah
