Why rebellious tongue must be controlled?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali said: Coordinate the tongue and the heart; human being must control his/her tongue because a rebellious tongue will lead his/her owner to destruction. Swear to God, I have not seen a devout person whose piety has been beneficial to him/her unless he/she has controlled his/her tongue [1].

[1] Nahjul Balaghah, Sermon 176.
