Silence is Wisdom

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

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,
