The Art of Expression

The Art of Expression

Oftentimes, people misunderstand speakers. The words you speak will give different meanings if what you speak is not concise or a really comprehensive choice of words. People will always misunderstand you.

This is why one has to learn the art of speaking.

If you ask me what the most important aspect of speaking is, I will tell you, ‘You are a successful speaker if you are able to convey your thoughts with the help of words and people who listen to you understand what you mean.’

People are not aware of the art of expression. They cannot express what they have in their mind in the way they understand it. As a result of this lack of speaking skills, people will always misunderstand what is being said.

My English is very easy because my style is explanatory. A colleague of mine, when he speaks English, will appear to be more charming, utilising glamorous and artistic words. I fail to understand this kind of attitude towards speaking.

If you are in the business of conveying your thoughts, then you need to opt for words which are worthy of carrying the meaning you have in your mind to the mind of the other person. You have to be a genuine artist.

When you speak, you should aim not just to deliver words, but to convey your thoughts.

Let me ask: is it always the case that people, when they speak, are aiming to convey their thoughts? Maybe in the back of their mind, they have taken it for granted that others will understand them.

It is not easy for us to completely and successfully understand when someone is speaking, because we cannot read minds.

You need to know the art of the conveyance of your thoughts. Not everyone can do it. Where you live doesn’t matter. You need an academic upbringing. You need to work on what way to say a word and what shadows of meaning a word will convey to others.

Language is a tool. You need to know the art of using this tool.

Can one obtain a connection with God without an intermediary? Find out in Younus AlGohar's lecture about sainthood and guidance.

- The educated people have developed a bad conjecture for Spiritual Guides. One of the reasons is that there have been no Perfect Spiritual Guides in the world for 400-500 years and those who pose to be Spiritual Guides either loot people or they are driven by Carnal desires. They know nothing about the esoteric knowledge. The lack of religious knowledge deprived people of the truth. People have forgotten why it is necessary to have a Spiritual Guide and what the job of a Spiritual Guide actually is.

- When the educated generations came under the influence of organisations such as Jammat-e-Islami, they were told the system of Spiritual Guides is an innovation in the religion which resulted in them becoming disillusioned with saints and rejecting the intermediary which is mentioned in the Koran.

- God said in the Koran, 'Whomsoever I want to misguide is deprived of finding a Spiritual Guide.' Therefore, granting guidance through a Spiritual Guide is the method of God. God does not grant guidance directly. Although sainthood is now terminated, God has given the method of identification of a true saint in the Koran: The saints are chosen from among the Enlightened Believers. If you are not even an Enlightened Believer, how will you recognise a saint? Furthermore, how will you get access to God?

- No one can obtain the expertise in a field without obtaining the correct knowledge which is dispensed in schools by teachers. If teachers were not necessary then why don't we just have libraries? Why are there schools and universities? Similarly, how will you differentiate between the voice of God and the voice of the Devil without an intermediary? You must obtain the esoteric knowledge and the ability to investigate spiritual matters from the one who has the expertise in the field.
