Hanna al-Fakhoury, a Melkite priest (from Eastern Christian churches), philosopher and literary scholar has described the “Nahj al-Balagha” (The Way of Eloquence) as a selection of sermons, letters, quotations, and sayings of Ali ibn Abi Talib (as). He continues to describe it as one of the most famous books among Arabs and scholars, and linguists have benefited from it era after era. Its comprehensive nature provides solace for the man seeking spiritual guidance, the philosopher seeking insight into wisdom and philosophy, the reformist seeking knowledge into virtuous social constitution, the literary scholar interested in high-quality literature, the linguist seeking knowledge on eloquence of speech, and much more. Nahj al-Balagha provides insight into religious, political, military, social, and administrative issues.
Nahjul Balagha contains enlightening and perceptive wisdom derived from a religious culture gleaned through companionship of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP), a firm logic that sits well with the “Fitra” and is well-versed in the styles of the Quran. It is a deep reflection on matters pertaining to Allah (SWT) and His creatures.
