Speech Is Of Four Types


Stated Muhammad Ibn ’Ijlaan:

“Speech is of four types:

[i] that you remember Allaah;

[ii] that you recite the Qur‘aan;

[iii] that you ask about knowledge and you are informed about it;

[iv] or speak about that which concerns you from your worldly life.”

[Ibn Abee Dunyaa in as-Samt, p. 263]

Likewise when Al-Hasan Al-Basree heard a group of people arguing, he said:

” These people have become bored with worship, and speech has become light upon (their tongue), and their piety has decreased and that is why they speak.”

[Ahmad in Az-Zuhd and Aboo Nu’aym in Al-Hilyah]
