“..whoever includes his speech in his deeds will speak little.”

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “A man may utter a word pleasing to Allah without considering it of any significance, but for which Allah elevates his ranks (in Paradise); another one may speak a word displeasing to Allah without considering it of any importance, but for which he would be plummeted into Hell.” [Al-Bukhaari]

Abdullaah Ibn Amr Ibn Al-Aas and his father, stated: “The Messenger of Allaah never used foul speech, nor did he like to listen to it.” [Al-Bukhaari & Muslim]

Jaabir reported that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “The dearest and nearest of you to me on the Day of Resurrection will be the one who is best in manners; and the most abhorrent among you, and the farthest of you from me (on that Day) will be the offensive (i.e. in speech), the garrulous (i.e excessively talkstive), and the Mutafayhiqoon.” His companions asked him: “O Messenger of Allah! We know about the offensive and the garrulous, but we do not know who the Mutafayhiqoon are.” He replied: “(They are) those who are arrogant when they speak.” [At-Tirmithi]

It is reported from Al-Awzâ’î that he said: Whoever remembers death often will find a small amount (of worldly things) sufficient for him; and whoever includes his speech in his deeds will speak little.” [Al-Dhahabî , Siyar A’lâm Al-Nubalâ` in his biography of Al-Awzâ’î.]
