The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, you will continue to be safe as long as you remain silent. If you speak, it will be recorded for you or against you.” Silence is probably one of the most valuable gifts a man could ever have. It is more than “Not in a state of speaking.” According to one of the Hadith of Jami Al Tirmizi; Abdulla bin Amr narrated that the Messenger of Allah the exalted said “one who remains silent, finds salvation (Mann Samata Najja).” This Hadith shows us a roadway to wisdom. Salvation (Nijaat) is the greatest thing and in a beautiful manner, the Beloved Prophet connected SALVATION with silence. It teaches us the very important lesson about ‘SILENCE’ that there are times when remaining silent is more important than speaking.So being silent doesn’t mean you don’t have knowledge or the inability to speak. An enormous number of great scholars have already emphasized the importance of silence. In the light of Quran, Hadith as well as the traditions of scholars, a due importance has been given to either speak well or remain silent. Refraining from whatever harms another person or one’s heart and soul is also silence. The beloved Prophet of Allah said that, “Whoever believes in the Day of Judgment should either speak good or remain silent.” The whole concept of silence revolves around attainment of patience, perseverance, critical thinking and above all the ability to not speak without thinking. A quality which every one of us should strive to attain, silence is an easier route to identify the creator and one’s own self. It lets you dive into the realms of life which otherwise look imaginary and blemish. This is the reason the common old dictum “Silence is gold” holds true to this day. Silence is an art and all of us should strive to learn this art in an artful way.
