Alafasy showcases Imam Al Shafie’s(RA) lines:

Here is a harmonious blending of beautiful meaning with lovely vocals. Noted Arab singer Mashari Al Afasy sings the lines written by Imam Shafi’e (RA) that advocate patience against provocation.

قالوا سكت وقد خوصمت قلت لهم ان الجواب لباب الشر مفتاح
والصمت عن جاهل او احمق شرف وفيه ايضا لصون العرض اصلاح
اما ترى الاسد تخشى وهي صامتة والكلب يخسى لعمري وهي نباح
Translation
They said: “you are silent though accused”
“To Answer is key to disasters”, I said
Silence towards Stupid is Dignity
It keeps one’s esteemed personality
Lions look dreadful while they’re silent
But Dogs bark as they’re driven out
Imam Shafiee (R.A)
