The Tongue will one day reveal the real YOU, The tongue will one day speak out and show what is realy in your heart. Be careful as to what you have taken into your heart.

"When man wakes up in the morning each day, all parts of the body warn the TONGUE saying, ‘Fear God as regards us, for we are at your mercy; if you are upright, we will be upright and if you are crooked, we become crooked.’" (At-Tirmidhee)
 
Shaykh Riyadhul Haq gave an excellent example of how the tongue works in a talk on Slander.
 
InshaAllah I will try to put this in a very easy to understand form for all.
 
Lets take a look at the water pot. What comes out of it?
 
 
Only that which you put into it. Therefore if you put water inside, only water would come out, if you put blood inside, only blood would come out, if you put Zamzam inside, only Zamazam would come out, if you put dirty water inside, only dirty water will come out.
 
Now lets take a look at a vital organ, The Heart. The heart is the same as the water pot, What ever you put inside, the same shall come out. Let us becareful as to what we do, what we see, what we feel, how we behave, etc etc.
 
 
So what ever we take in and absorb will one day come out.
 
And how will it come out? The Tongue!
 
 
The weapon of Mass destruction
 
I have tried to keep it as simple as possible, but one can go into some great depth in their explanation of this.

Sahl bin Sa`d (radiallahu anh) reported: The Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "Whosoever gives me a guarantee to safeguard what is between his jaws and what is between his legs, I shall guarantee him Jannah.''
[Al-Bukhari]


Abu Hurairah (radiallahu anh) reported: The Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "He who believes in Allah and the Last Day must either speak good or remain silent.''
[Muslim]


Abu Hurairah (radiallahu anh) reported: I heard the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wa sallam) saying, "A person utters a word thoughtlessly (i.e., without thinking about its being good or not) and, as a result of this, he will fall down into the fire of Hell deeper than the distance between the east and the west.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Evil words are for evil men, and evil men are [subjected] to evil words. And good words are for good men, and good men are [an object] of good words. Those [good people] are declared innocent of what the slanderers say. For them is forgiveness and noble provision. Surah Nur Verse 26.

Some of my recent posts may have been harsh, but I assure you, they relate to me too.

If I have offended anyone with my tongue (by typing), then I'm sorry.

But when I hear the truth, I can not keep it a secret if it is knowledge that can be passed on. Yes, I do keep secrets of other peoples wrongs, as Allah has said he will keep my sins a secret too.

I hope there is a lesson in this for us all.

The tongue is the mouthpiece of the heart.

The tongue is the mouthpiece of the heart; whatever is in the heart will be revealed through the tongue. When a person is calm he can maintain a facade, however the moment he becomes angry, passionate or embroiled in an argument, his tongue will reveal what is truly in his heart. If a person does not work on cleaning his heart and mind, these things will surface under pressure. When a person is tested by his pride being pricked or by being provoked, then he will show his true colours. However, a believer whose heart has been cleansed will always respond with honour and dignity whatever the situation.

[This short excerpt is based on a brothers' majlis (gathering held for spiritual training) held by Shaykh Abu Yusuf Riyadh ul Haq on 30th January 2002].

(bism1)

1. If a person renounces Islam, he/she will be given a respite of three days in which all his/her doubts regarding Islam may be cleared. If he/she returns to Islam within the three days, well and good. If not, she will be imprisoned he/she forever. If he/she repents, he/she will be freed.
2. Once a person utters the words of kufr, imaan will no longer remain with him. All the pious deeds and forms of ibaadah which he may have fulfilled while he was a Muslim will be rendered null and void. His marriage will be null and void. If he had performed the fard hajj, it will also be rendered null and void. If he repents and returns to Islam, he will have to renew his marriage and also repeat his hajj.
3. Similarly, if a woman's husband becomes a kaafir, their marriage will be annulled. As long as he does not repent and renew his marriage, the woman cannot have any contact with him. If they continue with their marital and sexual relationships, the woman will also be sinful. If the man imposes upon her to have sexual relationships with her, she should expose him to the public and she should not shy away from this. There is no shame in matters of religion.
4. Once the words of kufr are uttered, imaan will leave the person. If these words are uttered jokingly and one does not have kufr in one's heart, even then the same rule will apply. For example, if a person asks: "Hasn't Allah the power to do such and such thing?" And the person who is being addressed replies: "No!" then in such a case this person will become devoid of imaan.
5. A person says: "Come, let us offer our salaat." And the person replies: "Why should I waste my time going up and down?" Or, a person tells you to fast and you reply saying: "Why should I kill myself staying hungry?" or you tell him: "Only the person who does not have any food in his house should fast." All this is regarded as kufr.
6. A person saw another person committing a sin, so he asked him: "Don't you fear Allah?" The person replied: "No, I don't fear Him." He will become a kaafir by replying in this way.
7. A person saw another person committing a sin, so he asked him: "Aren't you a Muslim that you are committing such a sin?" The person replied: "No, I'm not a Muslim." He will become a kaafir irrespective of whether he was serious or he said it jokingly.
8. A person commenced offering salaat. Coincidentally, he was afflicted by a calamity. So he said: "All this is because of offering salaat." He will become a kaafir.
9. A person saw something good with a kaafir. On seeing this, he remarked: "It would have been nice if I was also a kaafir so that I could also do the same thing." He will become a kaafir.
10. A person's son or beloved one passed away, so he said: "O Allah! Why did You oppress me in this way? Why are You torturing me?" By saying this, the person will become a kaafir.
11. A person says: "Even if Allah asks me to do this work I will not do it." or: "Even if the angel Jibra'eel comes down, I will not listen to him." He will become a kaafir.
12. A person says: "I do such work that even Allah does not know about it." He will become a kaafir.
13. If a person derides Allah Ta'ala or any of His prophets, finds fault with the Shariah or is attracted to certain acts of kufr, his imaan will leave him. All those acts which cause one's imaan to leave a person have been mentioned in Part One of Bahishti Zewar. For further details, refer to the relevant chapters of Part One. One should be very cautious in preserving one's imaan. May Allah Ta'ala protect our imaan, and may we leave this world with imaan. Aameen
(Bahishti Zewar)
