Many of the women today move their tongues loosely when speaking
As if she doesn’t know that she will be brought to account for her actions and speech.
If they (actions and speech) were evil, then she will be rewarded with evil.
If they (actions and speech) were good, then she will be rewarded with good.
Al Haakim reports in his book ‘Al Mustadrak’ upon the authority of ‘Ubaadah Ibn As-Saamit (Radiy Allaahu anhu) that the Prophet (Salla Allaahu ‘Alayhi wa sallam) pointed to his mouth and said:
“Silence brings nothing but good.” Mu’aadh (Radiy Allaahu anhu) said to him: “Will we be held to account for that which we speak with our tongues?”
The Prophet (Salla Allaahu ‘Alayhi wa sallam) (upon hearing this) hit Mu’aadh’s thigh and said, “O Mu’aadh! May your mother be bereaved of you,” or he said: “Maasha Allaah,” that he said this to him.
He (Salla Allaahu ‘Alayhi wa sallam) said: “Is there anything that causes the people to be dragged on their nose to the Hellfire except that which their tongues uttered? So he who believes in Allaah and the Last Day then let him speak good or remain silent (refrain from evil speech).
Speak good – you will benefit; remain silent – you will be safe.”
-This hadeeth is authentic, as mentioned in ‘As Saheeh al Musnad’. (1/400)
Therefore, by guarding the tongue from slipping (a person can obtain) the reward that Allaah gives to His slaves, in that He will direct them to righteousness and forgiveness of their sins.
O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allâh and fear Him, and speak (always) the truth. He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and will forgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allâh and His Messenger he has indeed achieved a great achievement (i.e. he will be saved from the Hell-fire and made to enter Paradise).
