Need to talk less

Rationale and clear communication, in any form (writing, orally etc.) shall be practised and refrain from uttering foul and meaningless talk.
Need to talk less

In today's modern social and electronic media world, the importance of being in-conversable or silentious is inevitable. Although we cannot deny the need for such communication channels, we frequently talk gibberish, defying the sense of rationality and disseminating foul talk to the masses.

Here the word in-conversable does not mean to keep numb and silent but to talk less, share our thoughts in a few comments and refrain from criticizing others. 

The Glorious Quran says in Chapter 25, Verse 63, "And the slaves of the Most Beneficent (Allah) are those who walk on the earth in humility and sedateness, and when the foolish address them (with bad words), they reply back with mild words of gentleness."

Further in Chapter 4, Verse 114, Allah says "There is no good in most of their secret talks save (in) him who orders Sadaqah (charity in Allah's Cause), or Ma'ruf (Islamic Monotheism and all the good and righteous deeds which Allah has ordained), or conciliation between mankind, and he who does this, seeking the good Pleasure of Allah, We shall give him a great reward".

Therefore, whether the conversations are discussed openly or secretively, they shall be rational and meaningful. Negativity erodes one's personality and also our fate on doom's day. 

Following are the famous sayings of great men:

  1. In a nation, the thing we scare the most, among other things, is the tongue (Muhammad PBUH).
  2. Those who seek silence will get the reward. (Muhammad PBUH).
  3. 9 of 10 commandments relate to silence and humbleness. (Issac PBUH)

Consequently, the Prophets PBUH practises rational and clear communication in any form (writing, orally etc.), and we shall adopt the same daily and refrain from uttering foul and meaningless talk.
