Undesirability of Pretentiousness and Exaggeration during Conversation

1736. Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Ruined are Al-Mutanatti`un.” He repeated this thrice.
[Muslim].

1737. `Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-As (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Verily, Allah dislikes an eloquent person who rolls his tongue as a cow rolls its tongue (while eating).”
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].

1738. Jabir bin `Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “The dearest and the closest of you to me on the Day of Resurrection will be those who are the best in behaviour; and the most hateful and the farthest from me on the Day of Resurrection will be the talkative and the most pretentious and the most rhetorical.
[At-Tirmidhi].
