Only Speak Good

Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:


Our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam says:

فَلْيَقُلْ خَيْراً أَوْ لِيَصْمُتْ

“Speak good or remain silent.” Always speak good things, because all the words you say are written down. Whatever you do, it is written down. There are angels on the left and on the right. The one on the right writes good deeds and the one on the left writes bad deeds and sins.

Therefore, don’t think you came to this world for nothing. Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:

أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ عَبَثًا وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لَا تُرْجَعُونَ’,

Afaĥasibtum ‘Annamā Khalaqnākum `Abathāan Wa ‘Annakum ‘Ilaynā Lā Turja`ūn’, ‘Then did you think that We created you uselessly and that to Us you would not be returned?’ (Qur’ān 23:115). Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says, “We didn’t create you for nothing”. Certainly, everything you do will confront you one by one on Judgment Day.

Therefore, always do good things and speak good things. If you speak bad things, repent and ask for forgiveness for that so that they don’t confront you. Let the good deeds confront you so that you attain goodness. No harm comes from goodness. Harm always comes from badness, from bad things. Things that have no benefit to people but harm are from shaytan. In order to mislead people from the way, shaytan went against Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and said this.

Therefore, don’t make shaytan happy. The more you do bad things or speak badly, the happier shaytan is. No need to make shaytan happy. Making him happy will upset you later. It will come up as evil for you. It will come up as punishment. You will see its harm both here and hereafter. May Allah ﷻ protect us.

This time we are living in is the end of times. If you tell everything you hear, that is the proof that a man is an idiot. Sayyidina ‘Ali says this. A sign of the idiocy of someone is when he believes everything he hears, accepts it as truth and tells others. We have to be careful. There are many liars, there are many slanderers. If you go along with them, you will commit a sin and will bring trouble on yourself for no reason. May Allah ﷻ protect us.

It is the world of lies. With or without personal interest, people say things and slander others. Slander is a big sin. Who does it will get his punishment unless he repents and asks for forgiveness. May Allah ﷻ protect us. May Allah ﷻ keep all of us away from lies and slander insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
