Speech is a great asset to those who can use it well. One can please or hurt another person with language. A word can heal a broken house, or it can break a solid house. Masters of eloquence can inspire communities to have long contemplations. They can draw tears from a crowd, and they can change opinions, but they can also assert dominance over hearts and consciences. Word is a very effective way of connecting one soul’s reflections to another’s. Our noble Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Words have a magical power.” An Introduction to Oratory: Khitabah analyzes this magical dimension of speech with ample examples from the Islamic sources. This book can be used for self-study or with the guidance of a teacher at Islamic schools and colleges as well as theology faculties.
