Silence is wisdom, and those who practice it are few”
Is this Hadith authentic?
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,
