Hadith on Speech: All of the body parts of the son of Adam bow to his tongue

March 30, 2012

Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “When the son of Adam awakens in the morning, all of his body parts defer to the tongue and they say: Fear Allah concerning us, for we are only a part of you. If you are straight then we are straight, and if you are crooked then we are crooked.”
