The Tongue Proves Whatever Is In The Heart

Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

When you want use something as a proof as to what is in the heart, use the movements of the tongue as a proof. For indeed it makes known that which is in the heart whether the person wills it to be that way or refuses.
