S: The Tongue
FC: The Tongue
1: Choose your weapon!
2: The Prophet (saw) told us that the tongue will stop some individuals who thought they were going to Jannah as they will be turned away because all the individuals who they offended will come and surround them in order to take away good deeds in return for the hurt they felt.
3: The Prophet (SAW) said that if we protect the organs between our tongue and legs we will enter Jannah. Such as the heart.
4: Teenagers could influence kids really easily. This is because kids are just starting to learn new things so they are fast learners. Many parents try to avoid socialization between teenagers and young kids because it may affect them in a negative way. Usually the language of teenagers isn't appropriate for little kids; this is because they usually use words that shouldn't be said in front of younger kids. The language teenagers are using shouldn't even be used as an adult! Many younger kids have been verbally abused by their older siblings. Using bad language for teenagers has been normal and they don't find it bad. This should be avoided because kids always imitate their elderly so you would want to show them the positives not the negatives.
5: Throughout the generation the relationship between teenagers and parents are lacking in communication. Most arguments begin with teenagers rebelling and parents stopping their actions because they want what's best for you. Both parents and teenagers say things when they are fighting that they do not mean, and that is the power of the tongue. The tongue can be a vicious tool to hurting one's feeling without actually physically touching them.
6: Backbiting is a sinful habit that many kids and adults go through. In the Quran it states “O you who believe! Avoid much suspicion, in deeds some suspicions are sins. And spy not neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear God, verily, God is the one who accepts repentance, Most Merciful”. (49: 12) | In this ayah it states that if you backbite than it is just like eating the flesh of your dead brother. That is what should scare you when you even think about backbiting because the punishment is great. Whenever one does start to backbiting you should remind them of the great punishment that is written for the ones who backbites.
7: “You shall be saved as long as you are silent, for if you speak, it will either be in your favor or stand against you.” Many people gossip as if its second nature, but they do not realize that on the Day of Judgment it will stand against you! Everyone gossips, but out of everyone in the world, we should be the people who stop gossip. There are various ways to stop gossip, such as starting up a new subject and if that does not work tell the people straight up to stop. Your last resort should be to walk away because you were aware of their actions and you should have stopped it!
8: WOMEN GOSSIPING As seen on the previous pages many of the people gossiping were women. Women have a tendency to gossip a lot! It could be maybe they have nothing better to say or do, or they say it to intentionally talk about that person. What women may not know is that the majority of people in the Hell fire are women! Yet some do know, we still do it and it has become a disgusting habit for everyone including Muslim women. Women's most powerful weapon is their tongue and they use it constantly every single day! The fact that it is used every day, I am surprised it hasn't shriveled up into ashes because of how worn out it is.
