From my mother…


audhu bil-Lahi min ash-shaytan ar-rajeem
bismillah hir-rahman ir-raheem

as-Salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi!

My mother sent me this email many months ago asking me to do a research and I failed to follow through on it. Please help me with it as this is not my area. Thank you in advance and may Allah bless you. Here is the email:

Subject: Hadith or proverb?!!

Khair el kalam MA qala wa dala
خير الكلام ماقل ودل.

`Alaykum salam,
It is a maxim of Arabic rhetoric which means, “The best discourse is meaning couched in concision”.
