Ignorant and Indecent Speech

Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace be upon him) said:

“Fasting is not merely abstaining from eating and drinking.  Rather, it is also abstaining from ignorant and indecent speech. So if anyone abuses or behaves ignorantly with you, then say:  I am fasting, I am fasting.”

[Sahih: Related by Ibn Khuzaymah (no.1996) and aI-Hakim (1/430) who authenticated it. Refer to Sahihut-Targhib (no.1075).]
