Abdul Halim Sharar in #GuzishtaLucknow
“Culture & good manners demand that conversation be free of obscene words.
“Words& opinions that might be displeasing to others should be left unsaid and unexpressed. If necessary to bring up an unpleasant subject it should be couched in such terms that the feelings of
The person addressed are not hurt and worded as gently and pleasantly as possible.”
A number of words r used to give respect to people when addressing them
Janab e Wala- Honourable Sir
Janab e Aali- Exalted Sir
Hazrat – dignified Sir
Huzoor- Your highness
Huzoor e Vaala
Huzoor e Aali

Mizaaj e Aali? How is your exalted health?

Mizaaj e Aqdas? How is your Sacred health?
