There is one type of crying... people call 'weeping', 'sobbing' etc. Many times, a person absorbed in this type of melancholy tries his might to not show presence of that weeping. Frequently, he will block his face with his hands or he will quickly wipe tears welling in his eyes. Sometimes, he will just turn away, or he will walk away from the crowd.
All in the deaf & mute Halaqah were ever-attentive. Their eyes continuously focused on the main 'translator' translating. When there was insufficient communication due to the speed of information / knowledge from the Bayan (talk) - they would further help each other with sign language to help each other understand correctly and accurately . It was deep silence in the deaf & mute Halaqah, but it was Alive ! Only echoes from the main Halaqah were heard.
And unfortunately, in the main Halaqah you could see people snoozing, chit-chatting, distracted with other things - but the deaf & mute brothers were ever attentive for that whole one and a half hours. May Allah SWT reward their Talab and eagerness. May Allah SWT give me the same.vOutside the masjid, well, healthy people with healthy ears and healthy voices are backbiting, listening to backbiting, swearing, cursing, listening to the same, and all forms of blameworthy evil deeds. Nonsensical talk, excessive talk of dunia, wealth, pride, power and entertainment. Such is the grandeur position of the blind & deaf brothers. Allah Knows best. With what they have, they use it as to what Allah wants from them.
MashaAllah - every week I try my best to go to this noble place to rectify my Imaan. Last night was my first experience ever - sitting with the deaf & mute Halaqah.
Legendary are the stories of the Da'wah of the deaf & mute. They would go far and wide for forty days, two months and four months and more - inviting people to righteousness and piety, while training themselves for the same. Always - despite having no capacity of speech, and no capacity to listen, they are always successful in preparing other Jamats for rectification of Imaan. In silence, Allah SWT bestows guidance and Hidayat through their facial expressions, movement of fingers, hands, arms and shoulders. Allah SWT is Most Powerful, Most Generous.
