عن ابن عمر -رضي الله عنهما- قال: قال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم-: «لا تُكْثِرُوا الكلام بغير ذِكْرِ الله؛ فإن كَثْرَة الكلام بغير ذِكْرِ الله تعالى قَسْوَةٌ للقلب! وإن أبْعَدَ الناس من الله القَلْبُ القَاسِي».

Ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Do not indulge in excessive talk except when remembering Allah. Excessive talking that does not involve the remembrance of Allah, the Almighty, hardens the heart; and those who are the farthest from Allah are those whose hearts are hard."

Explanation

The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) prohibited indulgence in excessive talk that does not involve remembering Allah, the Almighty. He mentioned that it is something that hardens and veils the heart. Such a heart is unlikely to be affected by admonition and does not accept advice from others who enjoin good and forbid evil, because of the thickness of the veil on that heart. Then, he mentioned that the farthest people from Allah are those with the hard hearts. Nevertheless, the Hadīth is weak and can be replaced by the Hadīth which reads: "Anyone who believes in Allah and in the Last Day should say something good or remain silent" [Al-Bukhāri and Muslim]. There are many texts that encourage remembering Allah and warn against neglecting it. So, the meaning of this Hadīth is confirmed in other authentic texts.
