I love Islam

The beauty of our deen is in its application. Easy like the wind.  Do not force it or else it will not last.  Its too relaxed and you will not taste its true essence.

Talking excessively

The Worst People Of This Nation

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ : شِرَارُ أُمَّتِي الثَّرْثَارُونَ ، الْمُشَّدِّقُونَ ، الْمُتَفَيْهِقُونَ ، وَخِيَارُ أُمَّتِي أَحَاسِنُهُمْ أَخْلاقًا.

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "The worst of my community are those who speak a lot, those who are diffuse in speech and those who fill their mouth with words. The best of my community are the best of them in character."

Scholarly comments for this subject:

"Those who speak a lot" refers to the people who constantly talk about things of no importance in Islam.[1]

"Those who are diffuse in speech” This applies to the person who constantly chatters and idly gossips without prudence.[2]

"Those who fill their mouth with words…" This refers to a person who talks at great length.[3]

"The best of my community are the best of them in character.” This was mentioned with those who speak a lot, because the one who perfects his character weighs his speech and actions. He rarely speaks about things that don’t concern him. He protects himself from talking too much, gossiping, and talking at great length. The only people described  with these traits are those with bad character, those who are arrogant, and those who make themselves look good at the expense of making others look bad.[4]
