Abstract: 

The theory of silence and reticence is one of the exalted aspects of the sophistical thoughts. The sophist have expressed various viewpoints regarding the significance of this basic and major aspect, each of which is indeed worthy of deliberation in its own place. However, with a little attention and contemplation we can find ont that none of them has been able to express the beauty and value of the issue the way Mowlana did, to the point that he used phrases, compounds and interpretations in place of the poetical pen name in most of his poetry that imply the meaning of silence.

One of the reasons which made the incumbency of silence binding, is concealment of secrets in the assembly of alien persons and the populace, because if people with low capacity and unsound understanding got wind of the secrets, there was a possibility of unpleasant consequences for the speakers of those secrets, therefore, they had to either conceal their secrets from the common people or use a language full of mystery and irony. Mowlana believed that the most meaningful expressions and the most beautiful phrases must be sought in silence, and that silence is basically full of mellifluous and life refreshing meanings and phrases. Speech is like a veil that prevents the man from ascending to the truth. Finally, we should say that Mowhma's innovations and inventions concerning the theory of "silence and reticence" embody both arenas of thought and language.
