Benefiting from Sheikh’s Silence

Once Hazrat Mawlana Shah Wasiullah Khan saheb ra sat silently among those gathered to listen him speak. After a prolonged duration he said;

“You should not consider it essential that I am going to talk (every time we gather). 

Only those people should attend this gathering who consider it equally beneficial for themselves just sitting quietly without any thing being said.”


Foot note: Imam Abdul Wahab Shi’rani ra’s famous saying is:

من لم ينفعه سكوتنا لم ينفعه كلامنا

Whoever does not benefit from our silence,

he can not benefit from our speech.
