A perfect Muslim is one from whose tongue and hands mankind is safe,
and a true emigrant [muhajir] is one who flees from what God has forbidden.
The messenger of God said to me (Anas),
Son, if you are able, keep your heart from morning till night and from night till morning
free from malice towards anyone;
then he said, Oh! My son, this is one of my laws, and he who loves my laws loves me.
Whoever believes in one God and the hereafter,
should speak what is good or remain silent.
That person is nearest to God, who pardons,
when he has someone in his power, one who would have injured him.
It is unworthy of a Mu’min [a person with faith] to injure people’s reputations;
and it is unworthy to curse any one;
and it is unworthy to abuse any one;
and it is unworthy of a Mu’min to talk arrogantly.
All Muslims are like one foundation,
some parts strengthening others;
in such a way they must support each other.
The exercise of religious duties
will not atone for the fault of an abusive tongue.
A person cannot be a Muslim till his heart and tongue are so.
Certainly, people will follow you, and certainly people will come to you
from all quarters of the earth to understand religion;
when they come to you, guide them toward goodness.
The best jihad (lit. striving) is a just word before a tyrannical authority.
