The shaikh, Dr. ʿAbdullāh Al-Bukhārī, may Allāh protect him, said:

The Best of People at Protecting Themselves

Imām Ibn Baṭṭah Al-ʿUkbarī, may Allāh the All-High have mercy on him, said:

Indeed, the best of people at protecting themselves is the best of them at protecting their tongues [from evil], the most occupied of them with their religion, and the best of them at leaving that which doesn’t concern them.

Al-Ibānah Al-Kubrá, vol. 2, p. 596.
