For a couple of years, the topic of Silence had been one of my interests, and maybe confusion as well. Recently, the question of ‘to be or not to be’ rose and I was being lazy in finding the answers – and just reading about Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq on Wikipedia, found a quote by him placed on the page as:
“The perfection of intellect is in three (things): humbleness for God, good certainty, and silence except for good.”
So I get the answer. Praise to be Allah – who provides without even asking – and when we ask, it is He who provides much more than we ask for.
