So if you are to speak then let it not be plentiful…


It has been said:

الصمت زين والسكوت سلامة فإذا نطقت فلا تكن مكثارا فلئن ندمت على سكوتك مرة فلتندمن على الكلام مرارا

Holding ones tongue (الصمت) is beautiful and silence (السكوت) is safety. So if you are to speak then let it not be plentiful. For if you were to regret your silence once, no doubt a repeated regret will be with speech.

Allah knows best.
