    Nahjul Balaghah Sermon: 2

    Thursday 24 September
    Nahjul Balaghah Sermon: 2
    Nahjul Balaghah Sermon: 2

    Delivered on return from Siffin

    Praising Allah and Standing Witness

    I praise Allah seeking completion of His Blessing and expecting safety from committing His sins. He whom He guides does not get astray, He with whom He is hostile gets no protection. He whom He supports does not remain needy.

    I stand witness that there is no god but Allah the One. It is the foundation stone of Belief (iman) and the first step towards good actions and Divine pleasure. It is the means to keep Satan away.

    I also stand witness that Muhammad (p.b.u.h.a.h.p.) is His Prophet. Allah sent him with the illustrious religion, sparkling gleam in order to dispel doubts and present clear proofs.

    Arabia before proclamation of Prophethood

    At that time people had fallen in vices whereby the rope of religion had been broken, the pillars of belief had been shaken, passage was dark, guidance was unknown and darkness prevailed.

    Allah was being disobeyed and Belief had been forsaken. People obeyed Satan and treaded his paths. They sought water from his watering places. Through them Satan’s emblems got flying and his standard was raised in vices which trampled the people under their hoofs, and treaded upon them with their feet. They were in a land where the learned were in bridle (keeping their mouths shut) while the ignorant were honoured.

    The Household of the Holy Prophet

    They are the trustees of His secrets, shelter for His affairs, source of knowledge about Him, centre of His wisdom, valleys for His books and mountains of His religion. With them Allah straightened the bend of religion’s back and removed the trembling of its limbs. None in the Islamic community can be taken at par with them.The forward runner has to turn back to them while the follower has to overtake them

    The Hypocrites

    They sowed vices, watered them with deception and harvested destruction.
