A Muzzle and a Bridle

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

An intelligent, clever person does not say anything of speech nor write anything of words except after considering the correctness of [its] wording and the soundness of its impact.

So beware of letting come out of your mouth or inscribing with your pen everything that comes to your mind or runs by your imagination.

Shaddād ibn ʿAws, may Allāh be pleased with him, said: “I have not made a [single] statement since I became a Muslim without my [first] putting a muzzle on it and a bridle.”
