the Two Hollow Ones

Abu Hurairah said

 سُئِلَ النَّبِيُّ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ ‏:‏ مَا أَكْثَرُ مَا يُدْخِلُ الْجَنَّةَ قَالَ ‏:‏ ‏”‏ التَّقْوَى وَحُسْنُ الْخُلُقِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ وَسُئِلَ ‏:‏ مَا أَكْثَرُ مَا يُدْخِلُ النَّارَ قَالَ ‏:‏ ‏”‏ الأَجْوَفَانِ ‏:‏ الْفَمُ وَالْفَرْجُ ‏”‏ ‏.‏

“The Prophet (ﷺ) was asked: ‘What most admits people to Paradise?’ He said: ‘Piety  [Taqwa] and good manners.’ And he was asked: ‘What most leads people to Hell?’ He said: ‘The two hollow ones: The mouth and the private parts.’”

May Allah guide us to watch our mouths and speak only good, truthful speech with the best of character, and may He help us to remember Him and fear Him and seek His pleasure rather than our own, Ameen.
