And restrain your ears from hearing vile speech
Just as you restrain your tongue from speaking it
Because when you listen to this vile speech,
you are a partner to the one saying it, so reflect.
"Whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day should speak good or remain silent."
— The Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. [Saheeh, reported by al-Bukhaaree 11/308 of al-Fath, and Muslim no. 47]
"He created the seven seas, but He loved a tear from you (out of fear of Him) but your eyes were tearless."
— Ibn al-Qayyim [al-Fawa’id/53]
