  • The Prophetic Way of Speech

    Sayyidi Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulsi (Allah have mercy on him) cautions that:

    The general Prophetic way in commanding the good and forbidding the evil is to do so in a discreet, non-specific manner, in order to preserve the honor and feelings of the one who is wrongdoing to the extent possible.

    [From: Sharh al-Tariqa al-Muhammadiyya]
    Imam Shafi`i (Allah have mercy on him) said,

    “When one wishes to speak, one must first reflect, and if there is a clear interest to be served by speaking, one speaks, while if one doubts it, one remains silent until the advantage becomes apparent.”
    [Nawawi, al-Adhkar]
    Hazrat Aisha (Radiallahu anha) reported

    Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying:

    "The most despicable amongst persons in the eye of Allah is one who tries to fall into dispute with others (for nothing but only to display his knowledge and power of argumentation)."

    [Sahih Muslim Book 34 - Chapter 02 - Number 6447]
    Read not to contradict and confute, not to believe and take for granted, not to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider. Inhale positive, exhale negative
