Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) divorced himself from three things and also prevented people from three things;
- Speaking too much.
- Indulging in futile talk.
- He never spoke ill of anyone.
- He Never insulted anyone and never searched for faults in any person.
- He only spoke when he anticipated rewards for his speech.
