Question

Salams, Dear Bro/ Sis, My weakness is that
im very talkative, I really need to reduce this
because as you know it is said in Islam to
speak when necessary/ or to keep silent.. its
a bit difficult for me. Please help me.. Im
trying my level best to little by little turn my
self into a good believer, for which reducing
speaking is very important. Wasalam Zaynab

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

There is no mention in the Sharee’ah that
one is prohibited from talking except in case
of necessity, but it was reported that being
talkative is dispraised. Jaabir, may Allah be
pleased with him, narrated that the Prophet
said: ''Thedearest and nearest among
you to me on the Day of Judgment will be
those who are the best of you in conduct,
and the most hated among you to me and
the farthest of you from me on the Day of
Judgment will be the talkative, the pompous
and the 'Mutafayhiqoon'. The companions
asked him: O Allah’s Messenger! We know
about the talkative and the pompous, but we
do not know who the 'Mutafayhiqoon' are.
He replied: “The arrogant people.” [At-
Tirmithi]
Moreover, Ibn ‘Umar, may Allah be pleased
with him, narrated that the Prophet
said: ''Do not talk too much without the
mention of Allah, as talking too much
without the mention of Allah causes the
heart to harden, and the farthest person
from Allah is that who has a hard heart.” [At-
Tirmithi and Ahmad - Shaikh Ahmad Shaakir
classified it as Saheeh (sound) and Al-Albaani
classified it as Dha’eef (weak)] In any case,
the meaning of this Hadeeth is acceptable as
it was reported that one should not speak
except if he speaks good.

As regards leaving this habit, then it is easy
for whoever Allah made it easy for him, so
you should turn to Allah and ask Him to help
you, and if you are sincere in doing so, Allah
will enable you to achieve it. Also, what
would help you in this regard is to consider
the benefit of keeping silent except if you
speak good, and consider the disadvantages
that could be resulted from being talkative
for one’s religion and worldly matters.
Finally, dear sister, we advise you to be keen
on keeping company with pious and
righteous Muslim women and attend the
circles of knowledge with them, this is one of
the best means to help you to be a pious
woman.
May Allah enable you to be steadfast on
righteousness and make you firm on the
right path.
Allah Knows best.
