A Mu'min (Believer) is one who displays the highest akhlaq (character). Thus, he will rid himself of all evil qualities. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has highlighted some of these evil qualities when he declared: "A Believer does not taunt others, or curse people, or indulge in vulgar or obscene talk" (Tirmizi).

A Mu'min's heart, and tongue are both clean. He does not think of vulgar or obscene things nor does he express such things with his tongue. It is therefore tragic that some people take pride in using vulgar language. This is far from the akhlaq of a Believer. We should adopt the akhlaq of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), that most exemplary personality who was never vulgar or obscene.

"What is the way to salvation?" This was the very concise question that Hazrath Uqba bin Aamir (R.A.) posed to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).  Subhanallah! This was the main concern of the Sahabah (R.A.) — how to gain salvation from the fitnas (evil and mischief) of this world as well as the torments of the Hereafter. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) gave a most concise reply to the concise question. He said: "Control your tongue, let your house be sufficient for you and cry over your sins (Targheeb)." This is an all time remedy for remaining safe from the fitnas of this world and the next.

The expert says to you: "If only you knew what profits you will earn if you invest in that business, you would put all your money into it." What will be your reaction? You would certainly rush to do so. Everyone naturally would heed the advice of an expert since we all want the maximum profits.

"I can take no more." "I am totally frustrated." "I have lost hope." "Would there ever be an end to my problems?"

Due to many difficulties such as illness, financial problems, domestic disputes, family conflict, crime, disasters, etc., people sometimes slip into misery, hopelessness and depression. It is in such circumstances that a person often asks in utter desperation: "What must I do?"
