Whoever is silent has been saved

*Summary of Iṣlāḥī Majlis by Shaykhul-Ḥadīth Hadhrat Mawlāna Ādam ibn Yūsuf Ṣāḥib دامت بركاته*

17th July 2022 | 18th Dhul Hijjah 1443AH

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بنِ عَمْروٍ -رضي اللّه عنهما- قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم-: "مَنْ صَمَتَ نَجَا" [رواه الترمذي ]

Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, _“Whoever is silent has been saved.”_ (Tirmidhi)

*Controlling the tongue*

In such a short hadith with a few words, such an important lesson is mentioned.

By staying silent, you are saved from many problems of this world and the hereafter. Many people who are troubled in this world have put themselves in trouble due to their speech.

It is said that in the morning, all limbs of the body tell the tongue to stay wary, otherwise they will all be in trouble.

Some people have a habit of talking unnecessarily. Sometimes staying silent can help us. There is a saying in Arabic in reference to controlling the tongue:

*اللسان جسمه صغير وجرمه كبير*

_The tongue is very small in size but it's harm can cause great damage._

If you are angry, it is best to stay silent. We should constantly remember Allah ‎ﷻ by reciting Qur'ān and durūd. Those who have this habit are saved from a lot. Some pious people have kept this as a habit and been successful. If we create this habit, we will be rewarded for our dhikr but also saved from sins.

*Remembering the deceased and sending them rewards*

We should remember to pray and send reward for the deceased. This doesn’t mean that we will not receive the reward too. Some ulama have written that those who pray for the deceased have a longer life sometimes.

Mufti Shafee ؒ  is the father  of Mufti Taqi db. His father was Muhammad Yāsin ؒ  (who is the grandfather of Mufti Taqi db).

Remembering the pious brings happiness to the heart. If one is unwell it helps to brings about an energy. When Muhammad Yāsin ؒ  was passing away and was in sakarāt (the pangs of death), he called out, “where is my son (Mufti Shafee ؒ )?” So they called him and he came and sat near his father who advised him, “everyone forgets in the world but take long to forget.” He meant that he should not forget his father quickly and pray for him daily. He prayed minimum of Yāsin daily for his father until the day he passed away.

We should do this too. Reciting Yāsin once is like reciting the whole Qur'ān 10 times (as mentioned in Tirmidhī). We should send this reward to Rasūllullah ‎ﷺ. Then we should also send it to whoever we want and then in case we have forgotten anyone we should say to send the reward to everyone in the ummah of Rasūllullah ‎ﷺ. We should have specific prayers that we do specifically for Rasūllullah ‎ﷺ.

Hakeemul Ummah Thanwi ؒ  would have a habit that every night he would make a Dua, “O Allah! All the good that you have given me the ability to do today, forgive the mistakes and accept them. And give the reward to everyone in the Ummah who has passed away, who is alive and who will be coming.” We should do this too and will reap the benefits. The one who does so will have someone created by Allah ‎ﷻ who sends reward on their behalf.

Those who perform Fajr salah at the earlier time, between Esha and Fajr they should remember Allah ‎ﷻ. We should recite a minimum of 1000 durūd daily in an hour.

```May Allah ﷻ grant us the ability to practise on everything that has been said. Āmīn```
