Be Distinguished …

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiAllahu anhu) said:

يَنْبَغِي لحَامِلِ اَلْقُرْآنِ أَنْ يُعْرَفُ بِلَيْلِهِ إِذَا النَّاسُ نَائِمُونَ
The one who memorizes Quran must be known
by his nights when the people are sleeping,

وَ بِنِهَارِهِ إِذَا النَّاسُ مُفْطِرُونَ
by his days when the people are eating,

وَ بِحُزْنِهِ إِذَا النَّاسُ يَفْرَحُونَ
by his sadness when the people are rejoicing,

وَ بِبُكَائِهِ إِذَا النَّاسُ يَضْحَكُونَ
by his crying when the people are laughing,

وَ بِصَمْتِهِ إِذَا النَّاسُ يَخُوضُونَ
by his silence when the people are chatting away,

وَ بِخُشُوعِهِ إِذَا النَّاسُ يَخْتَالُونَ.ـ
and by his humility when the people are boasting.

(اَلْتِّبْيَانُ / atTayybah)
