عنوان مقاله [English]
The text of Imam Ali’s (as) sermons in the face of the opponents, in addition to the aesthetic dimension of its language structure, includes important epistemological and paratextual dimensions in its underlying layer. In this research, a combination of two methods, qualitative content analysis and Halliday coherence theory, has been used to study the text and the content of Imam Ali’s (as) jihadi sermons and determine the hidden layers of behavioral and natural aspects of the army of truth and falsehood. Accordingly, the function of the elements of lexical coherence in expressing the actions of the Companions of Jamal is more focused on themes such as doubt, treachery, and greed, and Imam’s (as) reaction to them can be summed up in certainty, patience, composure and trust in God. Also, during the Battle of Siffin, the cohering elements of words are related to the nature of the enemy, i.e. their inner disbelief, seduction, and militancy. These concepts are highlighted in contrast to the theistic, guiding and pacifist personality aspects of Imam Ali (as). Each of these themes has been emphasized in the form of different words and expressions through the lexical elements of consonance or recurrence, especially through synonymy and repetition.
