A Friday Reflection shared from our Suhba Online Program with Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui.
A poem by Yunus Emre (translated from Turkish)
A single word can brighten the face of one who knows the value of words.
Ripened in silence, a single word acquires a great energy for work.
War is cut short by a word, and a word heals the wounds, and there’s a word that changes poison into butter and honey
Let a word mature inside yourself.
Withhold the unripened thought.
Come and understand the kind of word that reduces money and riches to dust.
Know when to speak a word and when not to speak at all.
A single word turns the universe of hell into eight paradises.
Follow the Way. Don’t be fooled by what you already know. Be watchful.
Reflect before you speak.
A foolish mouth can brand your soul.
Yunus, say one last thing about the power of words – Only the word “I” divides me from God.
