Taimur Ali Shah, Sumara Mehmood, Huma Khan, Rubina Hussain, Saeed Ur Rahman


The goal of the present study is to explore the linguistic elements of Khan's discourse on Riyasat-i-Madina. The present study aims to reveal his discourse as a story for creating an Islamic welfare state and to critically analyse the linguistic elements of his discourse regarding Riyasat-i-Madina. The data analysis process was carried out using the Fairclough (2003) Three-Dimensional Model. The initial phase in 3D Model involves analysing the text from a linguistic standpoint. The second is discursive practice, which includes producing and consuming texts in society as well as creating and ingesting it. The social practice is the third. It refers to the way in which society interprets a text and the way in which it is compared to social structures. The results of the study demonstrate that Khan (2022) has effectively expressed his religious beliefs through the use of language that is portrayed as religious in his remarks. Khan’s (2022) speech has been utilized to illustrate the connections between language, ideology, religion, and power.  His discourse shows that spiritual challenges can foretell rise and decline of countries and civilization.
