حدثنا سليمان بن أحمد ، ثنا علي بن عبد العزيز ، وبشر بن موسى ، قالا : ثنا أبو نعيم ، ثنا الأعمش ، عن يزيد بن حيان ، عن عيسى بن عقبة ، قال : قال عبد الله بن مسعود والله الذي لا إله إلا هو ، ما على ظهر الأرض شيء أحوج إلى طول سجن من لسان

‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (رضي الله عنه) said,”By Allah who alone is God, nothing on this earth requires more incarceration more than one’s tongue.”
