|alsalamu alaykum this was fwded to me|
I have no name or face
No one knows where I live
I am nobody's friend
There's no justice for me
I maim without killing
I break hearts and ruin lives
Age only adds to my strength
The more I'm quoted, the stronger I become
My victims are helpless
You cannot protect yourself against me
The harder you fight, the more elusive I become.
Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same
I topple governments and wreck marriages
I ruin careers and cause sleepless nights
I spawn suspicion and generate grief
I make innocent people cry in their pillows
Even my name hisses
I am called GOSSIP
I make headlines and headaches
REMEMBER, before you repeat a story
Ask yourself: Is it true? Is it fair?
Above all, It is necessary?
If not, do not repeat it. KEEP QUIET.
GREAT minds discuss ideas
Average minds discuss events
Shallow minds discuss people
When I am not yet told, I am your prisoner;
But once I am told, you become my prisoner.
Silence is many times the best answer to me.
"He who believes in Allah and in the Day of Rising, let him either say good
words or remain silent!" (Muhammad, peace be upon him)
