Turning Away from Pointless Talk   God Most High has said: Successful are the believers, who are humble in their prayers, and who turn away from pointless talk, (23:1-3) and: Those who do not bear witness to what is false, but when they pass by pointless talk, pass with dignity, (25:72) and: When they hear pointless talk, they turn away from it. (28:55)    "Pointless talk" [laghw] is speech which is futile and irrelevant, and bears no relation to any true purpose. It brings no benefit to the one who utters it, and may well bring him misfortune instead.   'Ali (may Allah ennoble his countenance) related that the Messenger of God (may blessings and peace be upon him) said, "It is part of a man's sound practice of Islam that he leave alone that of which is of no concern to him." (Tirmidhi and Ibn Maja)   Dhu'l-Nun said, "Whoever loves God lives truly, and whoever inclines to anything else damages his mind. A foolish man comes and goes, paying attention to what is nothing, while the intelligent man inspects his own thoughts scrupulously."   -Imam al-Bayhaqi, The Seventy-Seven Branches of Faith

As for him who fears to stand before his Lord and restrains the ego its desires, the Garden is shelter.
(The Snatchers:40)
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The Fire is surrounded by all kinds of desires and passions, while Paradise is surrounded by all kinds of disliked, undesirable things."
(Bukhari)
Whoever does good at night is rewarded during the day and whoever does good during the day is rewarded at night. Whoever is sincere in abandoning a desire is saved from catering to it. God is too noble to punish a heart that has abandoned a desire for His sake.
(Abu Sulayman ad-Darani)
Beware of your ego, and trust not its mischief;
The ego is worse than seventy devils.

I seek God's forgiveness, and do not claim that my intention in producing this Blog is confined to good religious purposes; how may I do so when I am aware of the hidden desires, egotistic passions, and worldly wishes that I harbour? I do not claim innocence for myself; the ego is indeed an inciter to evil, save when my Lord shows mercy; my Lord is indeed Forgiving, Merciful. O God! I seek Your protection against my committing idolatry [shirk] knowingly, and Your forgiveness for that of which I am not aware! I ask God to make me and all other believers benefit from this Blog and to render my production of it purely for the sake of His Noble Countenance.
