My beloved children, who are the pupils of my eye—Truth is silent. If Truth has dawned within you, then there will be no further speech. It is silence, and silence is the greatest Truth, the best question. If there is no Truth, then there will be a lot of talk and questions. One is good and the other is bad. If there is good within you, there will be no further noise within. But if you are full of bad, there will be so much of talk, speeches and questions. Therefore, seek the good. God does not make a noise. If you need anything, then you will have only to knock, and if you are tuned to that point, with the sound of that knock you will get an answer immediately. No noise, you don't have to make a sound. This is the Truth
'The Tree That Fell to the West: Autobiography of a Sufi'
By M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Author)
Muhammad Raheem Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral.) always said his own history was not important, and that only God’s history is of value. However, he did on several occasions speak about his personal history and life experiences. They reveal his search for God and a dedication to serving all lives.
In this collection of experiences, and teachings, we read countless examples of the duties he performed for those he met; rescuing them from danger, healing their spiritual and physical illnesses, and even saving them from death, while urging them to have faith, acquire God’s gracious qualities, and search for Him within. That continues to be his greatest service, to share the wisdom needed to understand who God is, where our soul is, and what the relationship between God and mankind is.
