A heavy emphasis is placed in Islam on the dangers of the tongue. The Beloved ﷺ warned against heedlessness over speech and guaranteed Paradise to the one who is watchful over their words, which indicates the difficulty of attaining that level of consciousness. Indeed, the most difficult fast during Ramadan is not that of the stomach, but that of the tongue.
Prohibitions of the Tongue is a didactic poem composed by the great Mauritanian sage Sidi Muhammad Maulood. I translated and offered commentary on this work during a weekend intensive with al-Hikam Institute in Brisbane, Australia in September 2018, the audio recordings of which will be released over episodes 72 to 77 in this podcast.
