The Power of Words

We live in an age when people forget how hurtful and devastating words can be. People flippantly make comments on online platforms such as Facebook and Twitter with little regard to their effect. 

I often hear Muslims claim that Islam teaches us to speak kindly to people, but in reality when pushed people often fall back on aggression and harsh words, especially when it comes to the defence of our religion.

Muhammad Qahtani, the 2015 ToastMasters World Champion, reminds us in the video above how words can have a life and death impact.
