Abu Huraira رضي الله reported that the prophet muhammed صلى الله عليه وسلم said; “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day; Should Speak Good or Remain Silent”
Reported By Bukhari & Muslim
This Hadith is a clear-cut proof that one should not talk, unless his speech is good. If one knows what he/she is about to say does not benefit anyone, he/she should not say anything at all.
Allah (S.W.T) warns us:
“Not a word does one utter, except that there is an ( Angel)watching, Ready to record it.”
So whatever we say is recorded. Any bad word will be held against us by Allah (s.w.t) and we will be rewarded for all the beneficial words we say.
May Allah make us among those who only say what’s beneficial to others. Ameen
Abu Mas'ud 'Uqba ibn 'Amr al-Ansari al-Badri reported that the Messenger of Allah, (PBUH), said, "Anyone who shows the way to something good has the same reward as the person who does it." [Muslim]
E.g. if you encourage someone to go for Salah, or pay Zakat and the person actually goes ahead and prays or pays Zakat, Allah will reward him for the good deeds and at the same time give you (the one that encouraged them to do good) an equal reward as he has given them- without decreasing what he gave them.
So Encourage Other To Do Good And Refrain From Bad Deeds
