A Series of Reminders About The Month of Ramaḍān – No.28

Do Not Ruin Your Fasting With Your Tongue

Sh. Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān حفظه الله إيمانه said: “This tongue is a double sided weapon: if you utilise it in goodness it reaps and produces goodness for you. However, if you use it in evil it reaps evil and sin for you.

And due to the importance of speech (everything you say) Allāh assigned two Angels, one to the right and one to the left of the person constantly.

Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record]. [50:18]

They write everything he utters, whether it is of obedience, or disobedience, or even casual allowable speech.
