Beneficial Speech. الكلام المفيد.

الكلام المفيد : أن يَحْسُنَ سكوتُ المُتكلِّمِ عَلَيْهِ

Beneficial Speech: When silence is the speaker’s best option.

…in Arabic grammar, what is known as ‘beneficial speech’ (speech that makes sense and conveys meaning), is what can be understood without needing further explanation. In other words, a statement you can put a period after, and has meaning. So, “I wanted” is not ‘beneficial speech,’ but “I wanted to go home,” is.

Yet in another light, it still seems to hold true. Sometimes, the most “beneficial” of speech, is ‘when silence is the speaker’s best option.’

Its been said that the End of Times will be when speakers outnumber the learned.

Reflecting on my life, I’ve learned very little and have spoken very much.

      may the Force run strong within you.
