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.

  • Assalamu alikum, I have a query regarding those people who are not pious, actually opposite, like we see some politicians who are cruel to mankind , or people earning through haram means , and they go to Hajj, so is it that even they are invited by ALLAH Almighty, and they also made a covenant with God and said Labaik, in the world of particles?
