Nahj al-balagha Sermon 1 ( Part 1) And introduction of Imam Ali (A.s)

.
For Your information

Short introduction of Imam Ali (a.s)

Imam Ali (a.s), son of Abu Talib (the uncle of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w)) was born in 600 A.D in Makkah, Arabia.
He is the cousin and son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w), having married his only daughter, Lady Fatima (a.s).
He is the first Muslim male to have accepted Islam and has the distinction of being Prophet Muhammad’s (s.a.w) successor when he was appointed as the first Imam for the Muslim community at Ghadir Khumm in 632 A.D.


Sermon 1 (In this sermon he recalls the creation of Earth and Sky)

Tauheed (Definition of GOD )

Praise is due to Allah whose worth cannot be described by speakers, whose bounties cannot be counted by calculators and whose claim (to obedience) cannot be satisfied by those who attempt to do so, whom the height of intellectual courage cannot appreciate, and the diving of understanding cannot reach; He for whose description no limit has been laid down, no eulogy exists, no time is ordained and no duration is fixed. He brought forth creation through His Omnipotence, dispersed winds through His Compassion, and made firm the shaking earth with rocks.

The foremost in religion is the acknowledgement of Him, the perfection of acknowledging Him is to testify Him, the perfection of testifying Him is to believe in His Oneness, the perfection of believing in His Oneness is to regard Him Pure, and the perfection of His purity is to deny Him attributes, because every attribute is a proof that it is different from that to which it is attributed and everything to which something is attributed is different from the attribute.

Thus whoever attaches attributes to Allah recognises His like, and whoever recognises His like regards Him two; and whoever regards Him as two recognises parts for Him; and whoever recognises parts for Him mistook Him; and whoever mistook Him pointed at Him; and whoever pointed at Him admitted limitations for Him; and whoever admitted limitations for Him numbered Him. Whoever said: ‘In what is He?’, held that He is contained; and whoever said: ‘On what is He?’, held He is not on something else.

He is a Being, but not through phenomenon of coming into being. He exists but not from non-existence. He is with everything but not in physical nearness. He is different from everything but not in physical separation. He acts but without connotation of movements and instruments. He sees even when there is none to be looked at from among His creation. He is only One, such that there is none with whom He may keep company or whom He may miss in his absence.

Please think about that .my article is not for hurt some one.

These words are saying of imam Ali (a.s) .
