In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy
The First Mistake: Talkactiveness
Talkativeness is too much speech without benefit. The talkative one is he who speaks a lot (and becomes) burdensome. You find amongst the people one who is a talkative person and a jester- he speaks in every affair and enters into every restricted (conversation). When present in a gathering, he fills it with a lot of noise and preoccupies it with excess speech.
Talk-activeness is a manifestation of bad manners and a proof of one’s feeble intelligence and weakness in religion. The Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) said:
‘’Indeed, the most beloved to me amongst you and the closest to me in the Hereafter is the one with the best manners amongst you. And the most disliked to me amongst you and the most distanced from me in the Hereafter is the one with the evilest manners amongst you; the prattlers, the garrulous ones and the loudmouths.” [Reported by Imaam Ahmad and others, and declared Hasan by Imaam Al-Albaanee in As-Saheehah: Number: 791]
Abu Hurairah (radiyallaahu-anhu) said: ‘’There is no goodness in excessive speech.’’ [Reported by Ibn Abdul Barr (rahimahullaah) in Bahjatul Majaalis 1/61]
