Hadith on Ihsan: Worship Allah as you see Him, control your words

Mu’adh ibn Jabal reported: He said, “O Messenger of Allah, instruct me.” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Worship Allah as if you can see him and prepare yourself for death. If you wish, I will tell you what should be reined in more than all of that. It is this,” and the Prophet pointed to his tongue.

عَنْ مُعَاذ بْن جَبَلٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَوْصِنِي قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ اعْبُدِ اللَّهَ كَأَنَّكَ تَرَاهُ وَاعْدُدْ نَفْسَكَ فِي الْمَوْتَى وَإِنْ شِئْتَ أَنْبَأْتُكَ بِمَا هُوَ أَمْلَكُ بِكَ مِنْ هَذَا كُلِّهِ قَالَ هَذَا وَأَتَى بِيَدِهِ إِلَى لِسَانِهِ
