Be Silent, Miyan is Listening

Among the varied states of the Seekers there is the state of Presence. Presence before Allah Almighty, Lord of the Words. There was a such person who achieved this state. When people will indulge in useless talk in front of him he would say, "Be silent, Miyan is listening."

(Miyan is a name used for Allah Almighty. Scholars discourage this word for being too familiar.)

(An oft repeated saying)
