Seriously Short Reminder No. 9: Use your tongue to…

by Umm Muawiyah

Assalamu Alaikum.

….get you a house in Paradise and not in the Hell-fire.

There are so many ahadeeth that warn us of the dangers caused by misusing our tongues.

There are also ahadeeth that show us the virtues of using our tongues properly:

Abdullah ibn Busr narrated that a man said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, indeed, the legislated acts* have become too much for me, so inform me of a thing which I should stick to.” He said: “Let not your tongue cease to be moist with the remembrance of Allah.” [Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Hadeeth No. 3375. Graded ‘saheeh’ by Al-Albani in Saheeh Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Hadeeth No. 3375.]

[*He is referring to the voluntary acts, not the obligatory ones.]

Everyone keeps complaining about not getting enough time to do more ibaadah (worship). Okay, what about at least remembering Allah with our tongues (e.g. saying Subhan Allah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar, Astaghfirullah, etc) while we drive, do housework, work on the PC, etc?

At least this way we’ll keep adding good deeds to our hereafter bank account sand hopefully get a very pleasant surprise on the Day of Judgement , insha-Allah, when we see how many good deeds we have garnered.

And don’t say that these are “little things”. Little things add up, remember?
