das Gebet fragt nicht. es ist eine sehnsucht der seele. es ist das tägliche Eingeständnis der eigenen Schwäche. Im Gebet ist es besser, ein Herz ohne Worte zu haben als Worte ohne Herz.

dua istemiyor. ruhun özlemidir. kişinin zayıflığının günlük olarak kabulüdür. duada, kalbi olmayan kelimelerden ziyade kelimeler olmadan bir kalbe sahip olmak daha iyidir.

祈祷不问。这是灵魂的向往。这是每天承认自己的弱点。祷告时要有没有言语的心比没有言语的心语更好。
