This post is also available in: German, Albanian, Turkish

In order to have someone do something, people use different methods like rewarding, punishment or advising. In rewarding, there is something pleasant and in punishment there is something unpleasant. In the process of advising language is used as a tool. The difference between advice and rewarding and punishment is; advising is done only by using the language as a tool where as many other tools can be used for the other two methods. These two connected words, “language” (lisan) and “advice” (mevize) are used in equal numbers, 25 times each. Two examples are given below from the Quran;

Among His signs are the creation of the heavens and earth, and the variations in your languages and your colors. Surely there are signs in these for those who understand. (30:22)

God is fully aware of their inner most intentions. So do not care them, advice them, and speak to them eloquent words that would their souls. (4:63)
