An Explanation of Al-Balaghah Al-Wadihah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Muhammad Sa`îd Raslân has an explanation of the book Al-Balâghah Al-Wâdihah both in audio and video!  Shaykh Raslân is one of the noted scholars of Egypt.  He has graduated from Al-Azhar with a Bachelors in Medicine and Surgery, a BA in Arabic in the Islamic Studies branch (?).  In addition to this, the Shaykh earned both his Masters and Doctorate in `Ilm Al-Hadîth.  Click the banner below for the sharh.

Note:  Lessons are in Arabic.
