Use vulgar words to entertain

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 268:

268 The Shaytaan threatens you with poverty, and bids you towards fahisha (indecent acts, deeds, talk, etc.). Allah Promises you His Forgiveness and Bounties, and Allah Cares for all and He Knows all things.


Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 4078 Narrated bySahl Ibn al-Hanzaliyyah

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: Allah does not like obscene words or deeds, or the intentional committing of obscenity.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1740 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas'ud

The Prophet (saws) said: A believer does not taunt, curse, abuse, or talk indecently.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.481 Narrated by Sahl bin Sad

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Whoever can guarantee (the chastity of) what is between his two jaw-bones (tongue) and what is between his two legs (private parts), I guarantee for him Paradise."


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4837 Narrated by Uqbah ibn amir

Uqbah met Allah's messenger (saws) and asked him wherein salvation consisted. He (saws) replied, "Control your tongue, keep to your house, and weep over your sin."


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4843 Narrated by Sufyan ibn Abdullah ath-Thaqafi

When Sufyan asked Allah's messenger (saws) what he feared most for him, he (saws) took hold of his own tongue and said, "This."


It does behove and befit one who has professed belief in Allah and the Last Day that they should bad mouth or use obscene, vulgar, or bad languageregardless of whether they are angry or in jest. Such indecent and vulgar talk simply does not fit the righteous character of a believer who sincerely fears Allah and the Last Day.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1443 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Busr

A man asked the Prophet (saws): O Messenger of Allah (saws), the ordinances of Islam appear to me a multitude of affairs, so kindly tell me something to which I should hold fast. He (saws) answered: Let your tongue be constantly occupied with the Remembrance of Allah.


The consequence of one who uses foul language and does not turn back to Allah Subhanah seeking sincere forgiveness is that he will be held accountable for his acts and deeds in the Supreme Presence of the Majestic Lord on an Inevitable Day.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1527 Narrated by Mu'adh ibn Jabal

The Messenger of Allah (saws) took hold of his tongue and said: O Muadh, keep this in control. I said: Shall we be called to account in respect of that which we say? He (saws) answered: O Mu'adh, may your mother be bereaved! Will anything else besides (irresponsible) talk cause the people to be thrown into the Hell-Fire upon their faces or on their nostrils?


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
