Nahj al-Balagha (Arabic: نَهْج ٱلْبَلَاغَة Nahj al-Balāghah; "The Path of Eloquence") is the best-known collection of sermons, letters, and sayings attributed to Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (as). It was collected by al-Sharif al-Radi, a renowned Shia scholar in the tenth century AD (fourth century AH). Known for its moral aphorisms and eloquent content, Nahj al-Balagha is widely studied in the Islamic world and has considerably influenced the field of Arabic literature and rhetoric.
