Nahjul Balagha

Sermon 108

The best means by which seekers of nearness to Allah seek nearness, is the belief in Him and His Prophet, fighting in His cause, for it is the high pinnacle of Islam, and to believe in the Kaleematul Ikhlas for it is just nature and establishing prayer for it is (basis of) community, payment of zakat for it is a compulsory obligation, fasting the month of Ramadan for it is the shield against chastisement, the performance of hajj of the House of Allah and its `umrah for these two acts banish poverty and wash away sins, regard for kinship for it increases wealth and length of life, to giving alms secretly for it covers shortcomings, giving alms openly for it protects against a bad death and extending benefits for it saves from positions of disgrace.

Go ahead with the remembrance of Allah for it is the best remembrance, and long for that which He has promised to the pious, for His promise is the most true promise. Tread the course of the Prophet for it is the most distinguished course. Follow sunnah of Prophet for it is most right of all behaviours. Learn the Quran for it is fairest of discourses and understand it thoroughly for it is best blossoming of hearts. Seek cure with its light for it is the cure for hearts. Recite it beautifully for it is the most beautiful narration. Certainly, a scholar who acts not according to his knowledge is like the off-headed ignorant who does not find relief from his ignorance, but on the learned the plea of Allah is greater and grief more incumbent, and he is more blameworthy before Allah.
