This research addresses the quality of Hadiths concerning ethical speech in contemporary public discourse. The study employs the maudui method and utilizes qualitative data obtained through a literature review conducted via library searches. A multidisciplinary approach is utilized, encompassing not only theological-normative perspectives but also historical, linguistic, and sociological angles. The findings of this study scrutinize and critique six Hadiths, focusing on: 1) avoiding lying when conveying information, 2) refraining from excessive questioning, 3) minimizing unnecessary debates, 4) providing measured advice, 5) refraining from disparaging others, and 6) avoiding hypocrisy. Among these Hadiths, only one is considered weak due to one of its narrators being deemed unreliable by several scholars, while the others are considered authentic. This research aims to enhance public understanding of the importance of ethical speech and the potential consequences of disregarding ethical guidelines. By directly addressing societal issues, it seeks to fulfill the role of Hadith as guidance and supplement to the Quran for the benefit of the community, aligning with the teachings of Islam as a mercy to all humanity.
