Mohammad Saleh Sharif Askari, Hamed Fashi


Music forms an important part of influence on the audience and plays an important role in attracting intellects and minds. Rhetoric is one of the texts most in need of applying the potential of expression in order to influence the audience, because the artistic sermon (rhetoric) relies on absorption and persuasion; among them, political sermons are most in need of using emotional stimuli, so that the category of influence and persuasion can be realized and the audience acknowledges and believes in the thought that theorator (author) claim. Accordingly, the current research studies the quantity and quality of the use of music in the political sermons of Nahj al-Balagha, focusing on technical images based on descriptive-analytic method. The most important result of this study is that Imam Ali (as) has used visual images with the potential of music and uses two types of verbal and spiritual music, thus has realized making the peak of beauty, pictorial, and influential. The fact that verbal music is diverse in Nahj al-Balagha's political sermons and involves a variety of rhymes, pun and replication, but spiritual music is merely limited in implication and does not include confrontation and marriage.
