Khamush, meaning silent, mute, or quite in Persian/Farsi, is a Sufi meditative contemplation that Rumi had often used in his poetry. In Rumi's Divan-e-Shams, hundreds of odes end with 'khamush'. Some scholars are of the opinion that Rumi had used the Nom de plume "Khamush" in his poetry, hence the numerous references to the word Khamush at the end of his odes. Others believe that in Sufism, the mystical silence of a Sufi always speaks louder than his words, hence Rumi's numerous allusions to the silence. I hope my following translations can capture the beauty of Rumi's mystical references to the Sufi practices of silence.
