I’m watching “The Platform” on Netflix and من لانت كلمته وجبت محبته was translated as “he who is eloquent is indeed admired”. I’ve heard this before, my question is what does it imply and when do you say it? Thanks!!!

    This reminds me of Proverbs 15:1:

    A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

    In Arabic:

    اَلْجَوَابُ اللَّيِّنُ يَصْرِفُ الْغَضَبَ، وَالْكَلاَمُ الْمُوجعُ يُهَيِّجُ السَّخَطَ.
