A famous hadith details several saving virtues and ends with the Prophet (pbuh) summarizing, "Shall I not tell you how to achieve all of this?" He took a hold of his tongue and said, "Restrain this."

Restraint of the tongue has been considered by scholars to be a central prerequisite to character development. This course is based on the famous text "Maharim al-Lisaan" by Imam Muhammad al-Mawlud (d. 1323 H/1905 C.E.), and will provide students with a deeper understanding of moral and immoral speech, its effects, and ways to protect one's self from spiritual harm.
