Almost everyday when i am about to sleep, i really think about how much pointless talk i have done!! and really a lot of it is!!!
May Allah save us all from it.
I found this useful short naseeha from Imam al-Bayhaqi's The Seventy Seven Branches of Faith.
"Pointless talk" [laghw] is speech which is futile and irrelevant, and bears no relation to any true purpose. It brings no benefit to the one who utters it, and may well bring him misfortune instead.
Ali (r) related that the Messenger (pbuh) said, "It is part of a man's sound practice of Islam that he leave alone that which is of no concern to him."
[At-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah]
Dhu'l-Nun said, "Whoever loves Allah lives truly, and whoever inclines to anything else damages his mind. A foolish man comes and goes, paying attention to what is nothing, while the intelligent man inspects his own thoughts scrupulously."
