Integrated, Unified Imagery in the Seventh Prayer of “Sahifah Sajjadiyyah”
Azadeh Abbasi
Abstract:   (1692 Views)
Imagery used in various texts is a rhetorical and artistic way of communicating ideas. Creation of works of art is one of the most effective ways of conveying ideas. The use of different types of rhetorical techniques, as well as the use of words and the way they are combined and arranged, is one of the important imagery techniques. In addition to the holy Quran, the use of imagery language is observed in other religious texts, including “Sahifah Sajjadiyyah”. A study of the seventh prayer of “Sahifah Sajjadiyyah” reveals that imagery technique has been used in it. The images in this prayer have been mainly created using metaphor, i.e. eloquent analogy. This prayer is one of the few prayers in which an integrated, unified image has been presented. Throughout this prayer, we see the image of an individual who, by virtue of his circumstances, is worshiping God in supplication. This individual has been pictured as a suffering, helpless person seeking protection as he shoulders the burden of hardships. He requests God to open the closed doors and heal the calamities.
Keywords: “Sahifah Sajjadiyyah”, imagery, the seventh prayer of “Sahifah”, figures of speech.
