HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Mu'adh bin Jabal (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I asked the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam): "Inform me of an act which will cause me to enter Jannah and keep me far from Hell.'' He (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) replied, "You have asked me about a matter of great importance, but it is easy for one for whom Allah makes it easy.'' He added, "Worship Allah, associate nothing with Him in worship, offer As-Salaah (the prayer), pay the Zakaah, observe Saum (fasting) during Ramadan and perform Hajj (pilgrimage) to the House of Allah, if you can afford it.'' He (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) further said, "Shall I not guide you to the gates of goodness? Fasting is a screen (from Hell), charity extinguishes (i.e., removes) the sins as water extinguishes fire, and standing in prayers by a servant of Allah during the last third part of the night.''…
…Then he asked, "Shall I tell you of that which holds all these things?'' I said: "Yes, O Messenger of Allah.'' So he took hold of his tongue and said, "Keep this in control.'' I asked: "O Messenger of Allah! Shall we really be accounted for what we talk about?'' He replied, "People will be thrown on their faces into the Hell on account of their tongues.'' (TIRMIZI)

Commentary: Besides describing Articles of Islam, this Hadith mentions the dangers which lie in the careless use of the tongue. All good actions can go waste if one does not guard his speech. One should, therefore, guard his tongue against that which Allah has made prohibited.
