In Silence did the Prophet (SAAWS) meditate

In Silence did approach him the angel Gabriel (alayhi salam)

In Silence was that simple Arab made the Greatest of Mankind

In Silence do the righteous conscience and the sinning self whisper

In Silence do we strive for a Paradise that is silent to us

In Silence is both death and life

In Silence is both happiness and sadness

In Silence is peace and a calming of chaos

In Silence is freedom and discipline

In Silence a king and poor man are equal

In Silence do you learn to hear the Divine fabric of the Quran

In Silence is a deafness louder than any speech

In Silence does Allah speak to you

What can be spoken or taught in words that is so abundant in silence?

Try this tonight: Before you pray just sit there on your prayer mat for a good 10 minutes. Totally silent. Totally still. See how it affects you. Keep doing this, especially before Isha prayers every night regularly and maybe the poem above will start to make sense, Insha Allah.

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdika ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk, Ameen.


  1. I love silence!
