Hadith on Silence: Allah is silent on matters for your benefit

Abu Darda reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “What Allah has made lawful in his book is lawful, and what he has made unlawful is unlawful. Whatever he has remained silent upon, it is for your benefit, so accept benefit from Allah. Verily, Allah is not forgetful.” Then the Prophet recited the verse, “Your Lord is not forgetful.” (19:64)

عَنْ أَبِي الدَّرْدَاءِ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَا أَحَلَّ اللَّهُ فِي كِتَابِهِ فَهُوَ حَلالٌ وَمَا حَرَّمَ فَهُوَ حَرَامٌ وَمَا سَكَتَ عَنْهُ فَهُوَ عَافِيَةٌ فَاقْبَلُوا مِنَ اللَّهِ عَافِيَتَهُ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَمْ يَكُنْ نَسِيًّا ثُمَّ تَلا هَذِهِ الآيَةَ وَمَا كَانَ رَبُّكَ نَسِيًّا
