Silence is Wisdom

Question

Silence is wisdom, and those who practice it are few”

Is this Hadith authentic?

 

Answer

This statement is recorded with weak chains as a Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar & Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu’anhum)

(Al-Firdaws, Hadith: 3667 & Musnadush Shihab, Hadith: 240. Also see: Sharhul Ihya, Hadith:  & Kashful Khafa, Hadith: 1623)

Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has also recorded this with an authentic chain as the statement of Luqman Al-Hakim (rahimahullah)

(Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 4671)

 

This golden advice is much needed in our era. May Allah Ta’ala grant us the ability to implement it.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
