[Muslim]

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, “A person utters a word thoughtlessly (i.e., without thinking about its being good or not) and, as a result of this, he will fall down into the fire of Hell deeper than the distance between the east and the west.”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “A man utters a word pleasing to Allah without considering it of any significance for which Allah exalts his ranks (in Jannah); another one speaks a word displeasing to Allah without considering it of any importance, and for this reason he will sink down into Hell.”

Abu ‘Abdur-Rahman Bilal bin Al-Harith Al-Muzani (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “A man speaks a good word without knowing its worth, Allah records for him His Good Pleasure till the day he will meet Him; and a man utters an evil word without realizing its importance, Allah records for him His displeasure till the day he will meet Him.”

[Imam Malik and At-Tirmidhi]

Sufyan bin ‘Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:I asked: “O Messenger of Allah! Tell me, of something to which I may remain steadfast.” He (ﷺ) said, “Say: My Rubb is Allah and then remain steadfast.” Then I said: “O Messenger of Allah! What do you fear most about me?” He took hold of his own tongue and said: “This.”

[At-Tirmidhi]

Hadith of The Day: Actions Are Judged According To Intentions

Umar Ibn Al-Khattab relates that he heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, say, “Verily actions are by intentions, and for every person is what he intended. So the one whose hijrah was to Allah and His Messenger, then his hijrah was to Allah and His Messenger. And the one whose hijrah was for the world to gain from it, or a woman to marry her, then his hijrah was to what he made hijrah for.” [Agreed upon]

This hadith is singularly narrated by Yahya ibn Sa’id al-Ansari from Muhammad ibn Ibrahim at-Taymi from Alqama ibn Abi Waqqas from ‘Umar Ibn Al-Khattab and this hadith has no other authentic route as stated by Ali ibn Al-Madini and others.

Al-Khattabi said, “I do not know of a difference concerning this amongst the Ahlul-Hadith.” This despite the fact that it has been reported from the hadith of Abu Sa’id and others – and it is said that it is reported via many routes – but none of them are authentic according to the hadith masters.

Then from Al-Ansari a huge group of people report this hadith. It is said that the number is more than two hundred, and it is also said that the number is more than seven hundred. From the most notable of these are Imam Malik, Ath-Thawri, Al-Awza’i, Ibn Al-Mubarak, Layth ibn Sa’ad, Hammad ibn Zayd, Shu’bah, Ibn Uyaynah and others. The scholars have agreed to its authenticity and have unanimously accepted it.
