"Refrain except from good speech."
- Prophet Muhammad PBUH -
"Silence is the best state, except under three conditions: you must not keep silent in the face of bad gossip attacking your heart; you must not keep silent in directing your heart to the remembrance of Allah; and you must not keep silent when the vision inside your heart orders you to speak."
- Ala'uddin al-Bukhari al-Attar qaddasALLAHU sirrah -
"Speech is like a medicine, a small dose of which cures but an excess of which kills. As a man's wisdom increases, so his desire to speak decreases."
- Sayyidina 'Ali bin Abi Talib karamALLAHU wajahu -
