This is about the book by Muhammad 'Abduh. For other uses, see Comments on the Peak of Eloquence (Ibn Abu al-Hadid). Or see the original Nahj al-Balagha.

Sharh Nahj al-balaghah is a book authored by the Shaykh Muhammad 'Abduh.


Shaykh Muhammad 'Abduh, the former mufti of Egypt, edited and published the Peak of Eloquence (Arabic: Nahj al-Balagha) with a brief commentary and for the first time introduced this book to the Egyptians.

He said that he had no knowledge of "Peak of Eloquence" until he undertook its study far from home in a distant land. It is said that he was struck with wonder and felt as if he had discovered a precious treasure trove. Thereupon, he immediately decided to publish it and introduce it to the Egyptian public.
