“A person speaking about unnecessary things is
[an indication] of Allâh abandoning him.”
-Ma‘rûf al-Kirakhî (rahimahullâh)

 

“Whoever reflects will find that the noblest and most dignified person of every gathering is the one who is most silent, because silence beautifies the scholar and conceals the faults of the ignorant.”-Ibrâhîm an-Nakhâ‘î (rahimahullâh)

 

“May Allah have mercy on the person who said ‘good’ and was rewarded or who remained silent and was safe.”

 

“Nothing is so good for an ignorant man as silence; and if he was sensible of this he would not be ignorant.”

Saadi
Persian poet (1184 – 1291)
