[The need for the] safeguarding of [one’s] eyes is much greater than [the need for the] safeguarding of [one’s] tongue.
It is not from [the etiquettes of] giving advice to spread the faults and shortcomings of the leaders, since that fills the hearts with anger and hate towards the [established and recognised] leaders.
And those of sound intellect should ponder at the [current] state of the world and reflect [on this].
So if the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would increase in repentance and seeking forgiveness, then what is the matter with us that we do not increase in doing so?!!
The remembrance of Allaah with the tongue is good, and [what is] better than that is the worshiper remembering Allaah at the time of committing a sin, and then refraining from it.
