When to Talk and When to Keep Silent

No Comments

Salam. More succinct advice from Imam al-Dhahabi, this time found in his biography of Abu al-Ala al-Amiri (Allah have mercy on him). Useful for all of us to reflect over and try to implement.

Imam al-Dhahabi said:

A scholar should speak with an intention and praiseworthy aim, if he is impressed by his speech then he should be silent, if he is impressed by his silence then he should speak. He should continously take account of his self (nafs), for it loves to be noticed and praised.
