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.

New Video: Surah Ash Shuraa Ki Ayat 52 Ki Batni Tashreeh | By Younus AlGohar www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yi_VnVrhdfc

Younus AlGohar delivers a breathtaking speech explaining the true meaning of the Koranic verse 42:52, revealing fascinating and unprecedented divine secrets.

This is an advanced lecture suitable for those who have a background in Koranic studies and Sufism. It is highly recommended that you, in order to understand this speech fully, read 'The Religion of God (Divine Love)' by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

Main points:

- If the esoteric explanation of Koran 42:52 (Surah Ash-Shura) is not given, then it may appear to contradict other verses of the Koran. God addressed Prophet Mohammad in Koran 42:52 and said, 'I sent a Soul as Divine Revelation to you with my command. And before that, you did not understand the book. And what did you know of faith? The divine energy was appointed within you. Out of my servants, I will grant guidance to those who I wish to through the divine energy, the flame of which I have placed in you. It is you who grants guidance towards the Straight Path.’

- Many clerics and scholars who translated this verse translated 'Soul (Rouh)' as 'Book'. They did this because they lack knowledge. Those who don't accept Prophet Mohammad to be divine energy say that wherever the word Noor (divine energy) was used for Prophet Mohammad in the Koran, it was actually referred to the Koran itself. And wherever the word 'Rouh' (soul) was used for Prophet Mohammad - which would prove the eminence of Prophet Mohammad - they said the word 'Rouh' refers to the Koran. And then they write that the soul represents life and the Koran is living, it also has a soul. This is a great injustice.

- It is not just the clerics who have been spreading misguidance; the interpreters of the Koran have been spreading misguidance this way for centuries. If the word 'Rouh' (soul) here is referred to the book and it means that Prophet Mohammad obtained guidance after the book was revealed, then why did Prophet Mohammad say that he was a prophet before he came into this world? Prophet Mohammad is the embodiment of divine energy. Do they mean to insinuate that Prophet Mohammad was misguided (God forbid) and then obtained guidance? So this means that the way interpreters and clerics have translated this verse of the Koran is incorrect.

- There is general guidance, exclusive guidance and ultra-exclusive guidance. General guidance is the definition most people know, where someone was misguided and then granted guidance. General guidance is when divine energy enters the heart. However, as one seeks to progress further towards God and his nearness, they need a newer type of guidance: the exclusive kind. So God said in Koran 42:52, ‘I will grant guidance to those who I wish to through the divine energy, the flame of which I have placed in you,’ which means that this type of guidance is not general. It is an ultra-exclusive type of guidance: it relates to witnessing the divine splendour. In this verse of the Koran, God is basically saying, ‘O’ Prophet Mohammad, it is through you that people will see me.' Only Prophet Mohammad who was granted the knowledge of seeing God.

- The Soul mentioned in this verse is not a common soul - it is not Prophet Mohammad’s own soul either, because it was revealed unto him while he was on Earth. Just as God said that he inserted Rouh-e-Quds in Jesus Christ, similarly, in Prophet Mohammad too, there was an additional Soul. The ‘Book’ God mentions is a reference to the knowledge that God revealed the Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus respectively and the different levels of faith their respective knowledge would take a follower to.
