Learn to listen, just as you learn to speak….. Posted by: auntacu81 in Religion

If a person starts telling you, whether in private or public, something that you already knew very well, pretend as if you do not know it. Do not rush to reveal your knowledge or to interfere with the speech. Instead, show your attention and concentration.

Imam Ata Bin Abi Rabah said: “A young man would tell me something that I may have heard before he was born. Nevertheless, I would listen to him as if I had never heard it before.”

Ata was a Tabi’ee, i.e. the one belonging to the generation coming after the Companions.

Khalid Bin Safwan Al-Tamimi, who frequented the courts of two Caliphs, Umar Bin Abdul Aziz and Hisham Bin Abdul Malik, said: “If a person tells you something you have heard before, or news that you already learned, do not interrupt him to exhibit your knowledge to those present. This is being rude and ill-mannered.”

Ibrahim Bin Al-Junaid said: “A wise man said to his son: ‘Learn the art of listening as you learn the art of speaking.’”

Listening well means maintaining eye contact, allowing the speaker to finish the speech, and restraining your urge to interrupt his speech. Al-Hafiz Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdadi said in a poem:

Never interrupt a talk

Though you know it inside out

Gotta Be Somebody

Gotta Be Somebody

This time I wonder what it feels like
To find the one in this life

The one we all dream of
But dreams just aren’t enough
So I?ll be waiting for the real thing.
I’ll know it by the feeling.
The moment when we?re meeting
Will play out like a scene straight off the silver screen
So I`ll be holdin my breath
Right up to the end
Until that moment when
I find the one that I’ll spend forever with

`Cause nobody wants to be the last one there.
‘Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There`s gotta be somebody for me like that.

`Cause nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they?re not alone.
Somebody else that feels the same somewhere.
There`s gotta be somebody for me out there.

Tonight out on the street out in the moonlight
And damn it this feels too right
It?s just like D?j? Vu
Me standin here with you
So I?ll be holdin`my breath
Could this be the end?
Is it that moment when
I find the one that I spend forever with?

Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
‘Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There?s gotta be somebody for me like that.

`Cause nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they?re not alone.
Is there somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There`s gotta be somebody for me out there.

You can?t give up!
When you’re Lookin? for a diamond in the rough
Because you never know when it shows up
Make sure you?re holdin` on
Cause it could be the one, the one you?re waiting on

Cause nobody wants to be the last one there.
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There has gotta be somebody for me
Ohhhhhh.

Nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they?re not alone.
Is there somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There `s gotta be somebody for me out there.

Nobody wants to be the last one there
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Is there somebody else that feels the same somewhere?
There has gotta be somebody for me out there.

Poem of the Day


Perempuan yang suci
Adalah perempuan yang dijaga oleh Allah
Tidak sedikit pun Allah membenarkan
Mana-mana lelaki ajnabi yang fasik menyentuh dirinya
Walaupun hatinya…

Kerana Allah teramat mencintainya…
Tetapi andai kita bergelumang
Dengan cinta lelaki yang palsu imannya
Di mana Allah untuk menjaga kita
Allah seakan melepaskan kita
Kepada seorang manusia
Yang lebih banyak mengecewakan kita

Mengapa masih ragu-ragu?

Kekuatan usah ditunggu tapi harus dicari
Hargailah di atas kesempatan yang Allah beri…

Jika Allah datangkan kesedaran dalam diri
Supaya meninggalkan cinta seorang lelaki yang munafik
Itu bermakna Allah mahu mengambil kita kembali
Untuk dijaga-Nya, dilindungi…
 
Penulis: Sungguh Jauh, sungguh jauh....ya saya sangat jauh...
