Hadith Explanation

Taqwa and Good Conduct

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was asked about the deed which will be foremost in causing a man to enter Jannah. He replied, “Taqwa of Allah and good conduct.” Then he was asked about the thing which will admit a man to Jahannum the most, and he answered, “The tongue and the private parts.” [Tirmidhi]

Taqwa (consciousness of Allah) connects a man to Him, and moral refinement prevents him from falling short in his duties to others. Adherence to this two-fold practice will cause the entry of many people to Jannah.

Many people, on the other hand, have a long, sharp, and dangerous tongue. This causes them to pour out heretic utterances and indulge in backbiting, slandering, abusive and non-sensical talk. All this activity leads to Jahannum. As for the private parts, a loose and unrestrained attitude incites one to indulge in immoral pursuits which will also lead countless people into Jahannum.

It is thus imperative for everybody to develop Taqwa, refine their behaviour, and shun the wickedness of the tongue and sexual organs, so that their life in the Hereafter is not ruined.
