    Turning Away From Pointless Talk


    Imaam Al-Bayhaqee
    The Seventy-Seven Branches of Faith [Summarized]

    Allaah Most High has said: {Successful are the believers, who are humble in
    their prayers, and who turn away from pointless talk} [23:1-3] and: {Those
    who do not bear witness to what is false, but when they pass by pointless
    talk, pass by with dignity} [25:72] and: {When they hear pointless talk,
    they turn away from it} [28:55]

    "Pointless talk" [laghw] is speech which is futile and irrelevant, and bears
    no relation to any true purpose. It brings no benefit to the one who utters
    it, and may well bring him misfortune instead.

    'Alee (radiy'Allaahu anhu) related that the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu
    `alayhe wa sallam) said, "It is part of a man's sound practice of Islam that
    he leave alone that which is of no concern to him." [At-Tirmidhee, Ibn

    Dhu'l-Nun said, "Whoever loves Allaah lives truly, and whoever inclines to
    anything else damages his mind. A foolish man comes and goes, paying
    attention to what is nothing, while the intelligent man inspects his own
    thoughts scrupulously."

    "I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving creature, but He has a grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the straight path. (The truth)"

    Thank you Sadiaa that was really good, and especially appropriate.

          What some may construe as pointless talk may in fact be individuals who do not bear witness to what is false.

          Just a thought.

            Jazaakillaahu khair sister Sadiaa, for posting the Imaam's priceless advice.

            It seems that much more relevant in this environment, particularly after looking at what is happening around this forum. Subhaan'Allaah, may Allaah help us to understand and implement the benefits that can be gained from the Imaam's words.
