البَلاغَة


ELOQUENCE




1ـ الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): البَلاغةُ ما سَهُلَ على المَنطِقِ وخَفَّ على الفِطْنَةِ.
1- Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Eloquence is that which is easy
[for the speaker] to pronounce and light on the
[listener’s] intellect.’
[Ghurar al-Hikam, no. 1881]

2ـ الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): البَلاغةُ أنْ تُجِيبَ فلا تُبْطئَ، وتُصِيبَ فلا تُخْطئَ.
2- Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Eloquence is to answer without delay, and to be correct without mistakes.’
[Ibid. no. 2150]

3ـ الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): قد يُكْتَفى مِن البَلاغةِ بالإيجازِ.
3- Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Brevity may suffice in accomplishing eloquence.’
[Ibid. no. 6666]

4ـ الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): لَيسَتِ البَلاغَةُ بحِدَّةِ اللِّسانِ ولا بِكَثْرةِ الهَذَيانِ، ولكنَّها إصابةُ المَعنى وقَصْدُ الحُجّةِ.
4- Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘Eloquence is not exemplified by the sharpness of the tongue, nor through excess babbling; rather it is through capturing the intended meaning and aiming at the proof.’
[Tuhaf al-`Uqoul, no. 312]

5ـ الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): ثلاثةٌ فيهِنَّ البَلاغةُ: التّقَرُّبُ مِن‏معنى البُغْيةِ، والتَّبَعُّدُ مِن حَشْوِ الكلامِ، والدَّلالةُ بالقليلِ على الكثيرِ.
5- Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘Eloquence lies in three things: coming close to the intended meaning, avoiding waffling, and communicating more meaning in fewer words.’
