Book introduction

Before you is a chapter from the great book Al-Adhkaar of the Imaam and great scholar of the seventh century, Abu Zaakariyaa, Yahyaa Ibn Sharaf An-Nawawee, 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.

In recent times, this great work was checked and verified by Shaikh Saleem Ibn ‘Eid Al- Hilaalee and printed in two volumes.

In his verification, Shaikh Saleem provides a grading for each hadeeth as well as a discussion into the reason for the hadeeth’s authenticity or weakness.

Due to our desire to make the E-Book a source of easy reading and benefit, we have limited the verification of ahaadeeth to just the grade that Shaikh Saleem Al-Hilaalee has provided and the references of the Hadeeth sources they can be found in, while abridging his discussions of certain ahaadeeth in some places.
