about this book
  • overview

    Before you is a chapter from the great book Al-Adhkaar of the great scholar of the seventh century, Abu Zaakariyaa, Yahyaa Ibn Sharaf An-Nawawee (May Allah’s mercy be upon him), which we decided to present as a book in itself due to the many benefits found in it. The chapter is entitled “Hifdh-ul-Lisaan” or “Guarding the Tongue.” The original source, Al-Adhkaar, is one of the prize works of Imaam An-Nawawee in which he compiles and discusses the texts related to what is recommended and forbidden from speech, focusing on adhkaar (words of remembrance) and ad’iyyah (supplications). In the last part of the book, as he explains, Imaam An-Nawawee devotes a chapter to what is forbidden and disliked from speech, such as backbiting, gossiping, and slander. So he brings the evidences from the Qur’aan and Sunnah on the obligation of guarding the tongue from evil speech.
