The difference between sayings of the believer and the hypocrite

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: Indeed, the believer’s tongue is behind his/her heart, and the heart of the hypocrite is behind his/her tongue because whenever the believer wants to speak, first thinks, if it is good, says it, and if it is not, hides it. On the contrary, the hypocrite says whatever gets on his/her tongue, and does not know which saying is of benefit or against him/her [1].
