7 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 2, Ali: In Praise of Allah I praise Allah: Seeking His Blessings, submitting to His Sovereignty, and through Him to ward off disobedience to Him. I invoke Allah’s help to suffice me when I am in need. He whom Allah guides does not get astray, and He whom Allah disdains gets no protection. He whom Allah supports does not remain needy. Surely this is most worthy of all that has worth, and valuable of all that is treasured. I stand witness that there is no deity but God the One, who has no likes. A frank testimony, whose essence is our belief. We shall cling to it as long as we live and shall invest in it to face the tribulations, because it is the cornerstone of Belief (Iman) and initial step to good deeds and divine pleasure. It is a means to keep Satan away أحْمَدُهُ اسْتِتْماماً لِنِعْمَتِهِ، وَاسْتِسْلاَماً لِعِزَّتِهِ، واسْتِعْصَاماً مِنْ مَعْصِيَتِهِ، وَأَسْتَعِينُهُ فَاقَةً إِلى كِفَايَتِهِ، إِنَّهُ لاَ يَضِلُّ مَنْ هَدَاهُ، وَلا يَئِلُ مَنْ عَادَاهُ، وَلا يَفْتَقِرُ مَنْ كَفَاهُ; فَإِنَّهُ أَرْجَحُ ما وُزِنَ، وَأَفْضَلُ مَا خُزِنَ. وَأَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ، شَهَادَةً مُمْتَحَناً إِخْلاَصُهَا، مُعْتَقَداً مُصَاصُهَا، نَتَمَسَّكُ بها أَبَداً ما أَبْقانَا، وَنَدَّخِرُهَا لاَِهَاوِيلِ مَا يَلْقَانَا، فَإِنَّها عَزيمَةُ الاِْيمَانِ، وَفَاتِحَةُ الاِْحْسَانِ، وَمَرْضَاةُ الرَّحْمنِ، وَمَدْحَرَةُ الشَّيْطَانِ.

9 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 45, Ali: In Praise of Allah The Praise is to Allah: from Whose mercy no one loses hope, from Whose bounty no one is deprived, from Whose forgiveness no one is disappointed and for Whose worship no one is too proud. Allah’s mercy does not ever cease and His bounty can never ever be missed. The earthly life is a place for which demolition is ordained and for its people the departure from it is assured. Life is sweet and green, made attractive to its seeker, enchanting to his heart. So depart from it ─ O’ People ─ well supplied for the Hereafter, and don’t ask of it beyond what suffices, and demand not from it more than the sufficient. الْحَمْدُ للهِ غَيْرَ مَقْنُوط مِنْ رَحْمَتِهِ، وَلاَ مَخْلُوٍّ مِنْ نِعْمَتِهِ، وَلاَ مَأْيُوس مِنْ مَغْفِرَتِهِ، وَلاَ مُسْتَنْكَف عَنْ عِبَادَتِهِ، الَّذِي لاَ تَبْرَحُ مِنْهُ رَحْمَةٌ، وَلاَ تُفْقَدُ لَهُ نِعْمَةٌ. [ذم الدنيا] وَالدُّنْيَا دَارٌ مُنِيَ لَهَا الْفَنَاءُ، وَلاَِهْلِهَا مِنْهَا الْجَلاَءُ، وَهِيَ حُلْوَةٌ خَضِرَةٌ، قَدْ عُجِّلَتْ لِلطَّالِبِ، وَالْتَبَسَتْ بِقَلْبِ النَّاظِرِ; فَارْتَحِلُوا مِنْهَا بِأَحْسَنِ مَا بِحَضْرَتِكُمْ مِنَ الزَّادِ، وَلاَ تَسْأَلُوا فِيها فَوْقَ الْكَفَافِ، وَلاَ تَطْلُبُوا مِنْهَا أكْثَرَ مِنَ الْبَلاَغِ.

11 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 83, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Allah: High above all, but Near, through His bounty. Allah is the Giver of favor and reward, and the Dispeller of misfortune and affliction. I praise Allah for His ceaseless mercy and His copious bounties. And I believe in Him as He is the First and the Manifest. I seek Allah’s guidance as He is Near and the True Guide. I seek His help as He is the Mighty and Dominant. I depend upon Allah for He Suffices and Supports. And I stand witness that Muhammad ( blessing of Allah be on him and his progeny) is His servant and His Prophet. Allah sent him to fulfill His commands, and to exhaust His pleas, and to present His warnings. الْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي عَلاَ بِحَوْلِهِ، ودَنَا بِطَوْلِهِ، مَانِحِ كُلِّ غَنِيمَة وَفَضْل، وَكَاشِفِ كُلِّ عَظِيمَة وَأَزْل. أَحْمَدُهُ عَلَى عَوَاطِفِ كَرَمِهِ، وَسَوَابِغِ ـ نِعَمِهِ، وَأُومِنُ بهَ أَوَّلاً بَادِياً، وَأَسْتَهْدِيهِ قَرِيباً هَادِياً، وَأَسْتَعِينُهُ قَاهِراً قَادِراً، وَأَتَوَكَّلُ عَلَيْهِ كَافِياً نَاصِراً. وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً (صلى الله عليه وآله) عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ، أَرْسَلَهُ لاِنْفَاذِ أَمْرِهِ، وَإِنْهَاءِ عُذْرِهِ وَتَقْدِيمِ نُذُرِهِ.

13 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 90, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Allah: Well-known while not seen, the Creator who ponders not, Who has always existed, Eternal. He existed when there was no sky with domes, nor barriers with lofty doors, nor dark night, nor placid ocean, nor mountains with valleys, nor curved mountain paths, nor earth of flat floors, nor creatures self-reliant. Allah as the Originator of the creation is their Master. He is the Lord of the creation and its feeder. The sun and the moon steadily move in pursuit of His plan. They make the fresh grow old and the distant be nigh near الْحَمْدُ للهِ الْمَعْرُوفِ مِنْ غَيْرِ رُؤْيَة، الْخَالِقِ مِنْ غَيْرِ رَوِيَّة، الَّذِي لَمْ يَزَلْ قَائِماً دَائِماً; إِذْ لاَ سَمَاءٌ ذَاتُ أَبْرَاج، وَلاَ حُجُبٌ ذَاتُ إِرْتَاج، وَلاَ لَيْلٌ دَاج، وَلاَ بَحْرٌ سَاج، وَلاَ جَبَلٌ ذُوفِجَاج، وَلاَ فَجٌّ ذُواعْوِجَاج، وَلاَ أَرْضٌ ذَاتُ مِهَاد، وَلاَ خَلْقٌ ذُوااعْتَِماد: ذلِكَ مُبْتَدِعُ الْخَلْقِ وَوَارِثُهُ، وَإِلهُ الْخَلْقِ وَرَازِقُهُ، وَالشَّمْسُ وَالْقَمَرُ دَائِبَانِ فِي مَرْضَاتِهِ: يُبْلِيَانِ كُلَّ جَدِيد، وَيُقَرِّبَانِ كُلَّ بَعِيد

Ibn al-'Athir, al-Nihayah, discusses its unusual (gharib) phrases in several places; 6. Ibn Tawus, Faraj al-mahmum, 56.

15 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 91, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Allah: When refusing to give does not enrich Him and When He generously gives does not impoverish Him, yet a man who gives would decrease of his capital, and a man who is miserly would stand to be blamed, except Allah Allah obliges through His generous bounties and the plentiful gifts and rewards. The whole creation is His dependants in sustenance, for Allah has guaranteed their livelihood and ordained their sustenance. Allah has prepared the way for those who turn to Him and those who seek what is with Him. He is as generous about what He is asked as He is about what He is not asked. الْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي لاَ يَفِرُهُ الْمَنْعُ وَالْجُمُودُ، وَلاَ يُكْدِيهِ الاِْعْطَاءُ وَالْجُودُ; إِذْ كُلُّ مُعْط مُنْتَقِصٌ سِوَاهُ، وَكُلُّ مَانِع مَذْمُومٌ مَا خَلاَهُ، وَهُوَ الْمَنَّانُ بِفَوَائِدِ النِّعَمِ، وَعَوائِدِ المَزِيدِ وَالْقِسَمِ، عِيَالُهُ الْخَلاَئِقُ، ضَمِنَ أَرْزَاقَهُمْ، وَقَدَّرَ أَقْوَاتَهُمْ، وَنَهَجَ سَبِيلَ الرَّاغِبِينَ إِلَيْهِ، وَالطَّالِبِينَ مَا لَدَيْهِ، وَلَيْسَ بِمَا سُئِلَ بِأَجْوَدَ مِنْهُ بِمَا لَمْ يُسْأَلُ.

17 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 100, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Allah: Who distributes His bounties throughout the creation, Who extends His generous hand among them. We praise Him in all His affairs and seek His assistance for the fulfillment of His Rights. We stand witness that there is but One God and that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger. Allah sent him to manifest His commands and to urge His remembrance. The Prophet fulfilled it effectively, and he passed away while on the right path. Muhammad left among us the standard of right ─ Whoever deviates from it goes out of Faith, whoever lags behind it is ruined, whoever sticks to it would be in the right. Its guide is short of speech, deliberate of steps, and quick when he rises…….. الْحَمْدُ للهِ النَّاشِرِ فِي الْخَلْقِ فَضْلَهُ، وَالْبَاسِطِ فِيهمْ بِالْجُودِ يَدَهُ، نَحْمَدُهُ فِي جَمِيعِ أُمُورِهِ، وَنَسْتَعِينُهُ عَلَى رِعَايَةِ حُقُوقِهِ، وَنَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَإِلهَ غَيْرُهُ، وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ، أَرْسَلَهُ بِأَمْرِهِ صَادِعاً، وَبِذِكْرِهِ نَاطِقاً، فَأَدَّى أَمِيناً، وَمَضَى رَشِيداً، وَخَلَّفَ فِينَا رايَةَ الْحَقِّ، مَنْ تَقَدَّمَهَا مَرَقَ، وَمَنْ تَخَلَّفَ عَنْهَا زَهَقَ، وَمَنْ لَزِمَهَا لَحِقَ، دَلِيلُهَا مَكِيثُ الْكَلامِ، بَطِيءُ الْقِيَامِ، سَرِيعٌ إِذَا قَامَ،…….

19 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 108, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Allah: Who is Manifest before His creatures by way of their creation, Who is apparent to their hearts because of clear proof; Who created without meditating, since meditating befits one who has thinking structure, while Allah has no thinking organ in Himself. Allah’s knowledge has split forth the inside of the unknown secrets And had recognized the imperceptible beliefs even in the depths of the hearts. الْحَمْدُ للهِِ الْمُتَجَلِّي لِخَلْقِهِ بِخَلْقِهِ، وَالظَّاهِرِ لِقُلُوبِهِمْ بِحُجَّتِهِ، خَلَقَ الْخَلْقَ مِنْ غَيْرِ رَوِيَّة، إِذْ كَانَتِ الرَّوِيَّاتُ لاَ تَلِيقُ إِلاَّ بِذَوي الضَّمائِرِ، وَلَيْسَ بِذِي ضَمِير فِي نَفْسِهِ، خَرَقَ عِلْمُهُ بَاطِنَ غَيْبِ السُّتُرَاتِ، وَأَحَاطَ بِغُمُوضِ عَقَائِدِ السَّرِيرَاتِ

21 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 114, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Him Whose praise leads to bounty and the bounties to thankfulness. We praise Him for His bounties as well as His trials. We seek Allah’s help against hearts slow to obey His commands, and quick to what is forbidden. We seek Allah’s forgiveness from what His knowledge covers and His Book preserves ─ it is knowledge that is complete, and a register that doesn’t omit a thing. We believe in Him like one who has seen the unknown and has attained the promised rewards ─A belief of purity disowning belief in associates with Allah, whose conviction removes any doubts الْحَمْدُ للهِ الْوَاصِلِ الْحَمْدَ بِالنِّعَمِ وَالنِّعَمَ بِالشُّكْرِ، نَحْمَدُهُ عَلَى آلاَئِهِ كَمَا نَحْمَدُهُ عَلَى بَلاَئِهِ، وَنَسْتَعِينُهُ عَلَى هذِهِ النُّفُوسِ الْبِطَاءِ عَمَّا أُمِرَتْ بِهِ، السِّرَاعِ إِلَى مَا نُهِيَتْ عَنْهُ، وَنَسْتَغْفِرُهُ مِمَّا أَحَاطَ بِهِ عِلْمُهُ، وَأَحْصَاهُ كِتَابُهُ: عِلْمٌ غَيْرُ قَاصِر، وَكِتَابٌ غَيْرُ مُغَادِر، وَنُؤْمِنُ بِهِ إِيمَانَ مَنْ عَايَنَ الْغُيُوبَ، وَوَقَفَ عَلَى الْمَوْعُودِ، إِيمَاناً نَفَى إِخْلاَصُهُ الشِّرْكَ، وَيَقِينُهُ الشَّكَ،

23 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 132, Ali: In Praise of Allah We praise Allah for what He takes or gives and for what He inflicts or tries us with. Allah is aware of all the hidden and He sees all the concealed. He knows what the breasts contain or the eyes hide. We testify that there is no deity except Him and that Muhammad was chosen by Him and deputized by Him ─ evidence tendered both secretly and openly, by heart and by tongue. نَحْمَدُهُ عَلَى مَا أَخَذَ وَأَعْطَى، وَعَلَى مَا أَبْلَى وَابْتَلَى، الْبَاطِنُ لِكُلِّ خَفِيَّة، الْحَاضِرُ لِكُلِّ سَرِيرَة، العَالِمُ بِمَا تُكِنُّ الصُّدُورُ، وَمَا تَخُونُ الْعُيُونُ. وَنَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلهَ غَيْرُهُ، وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّداً نَجِيبُهُ وَبَعِيثُهُ، شَهَادَةً يُوَافِقُ فِيهَا السِّرُّ الاِْعْلاَنَ، وَالْقَلْبُ اللِّسَانَ.

25 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 157, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Allah Who made His praise the Key to His remembrance, a means to increase His bounties, and a direction for His Glory and Sovereignty. O' creatures of Allah! Time will deal with the survivors just as it had dealt with others gone by. The earlier times will not return, nor what they offered would remain for good. The value of its deeds are the same, be they the former or the later ones, whose adversity tries to excel one another. الْحَمْدُ للهِِ الَّذِي جَعَلَ الْحَمْدَ مِفْتَاحاً لِذِكْرِهِ، وَسَبَباً لِلْمَزِيدِ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ، وَدَلِيلاً عَلَى آلاَئِهِ وَعَظَمَتِهِ. عِبَادَ اللهِ، إِنَّ الدَّهْرَ يَجْرِي بِالْبَاقِينَ كَجَرْيِهِ بِالْمَاضِينَ، لاَ يَعُودُ مَا قَدْ وَلَّى مِنْهُ، وَلاَ يَبْقَى سَرْمَداً مَا فِيهِ. آخِرُ فَعَالِهِ كَأَوَّلِهِ، مُتَسَابِقَةٌ أُمُورُهُ، مُتَظَاهِرَةٌ أَعْلاَمُهُ.

27 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 182, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Allah to Whom all creation and all matters return. We praise Him for His munificence, the clarity of His proofs, and the measure of His kindness and favors: Praise that may fulfill His Right, repay His Thanks, take us toward His reward and to the increase of His favors. We seek Allah’s help hopeful of His bounty, anxious for His benefit, confident to ward off mishaps, who acknowledge His favors, and are obedient to Him in word and deed. We believe in Him with unwavering conviction, incline to Him as believers, humbling ourselves before Him obediently, believe in His exclusive oneness, regarding Him with Awe, acknowledging His sovereignty, and seeking refuge with Him with urgency and vigor. الْحَمْدُ لله الَّذِي إلَيْهِ مَصَائِرُ الْخَلْقِ، وَعَوَاقِبُ الاَْمْرِ، نَحْمَدُهُ عَلَى عَظِيمِ إِحْسَانِهِ، وَنَيِّرِ بُرْهَانِهِ، وَنَوَامِي فَضْلِهِ وَامْتِنَانِهِ، حَمْداً يَكُونُ لِحَقِّهِ قَضَاءً، وَلِشُكْرِهِ أَدَاءً، وَإلَى ثَوَابِهِ مُقَرِّباً، وَلِحُسْنِ مَزِيدِهِ مُوجِباً. وَنَسْتَعِينُ بِهِ اسْتِعَانَةَ رَاج لِفَضْلِهِ، مُؤَمِّل لِنَفْعِهِ، وَاثِق بِدَفْعِهِ، مُعْتَرِف لَهُ بِالطَّوْلِ، مُذْعِن لَهُ بِالْعَمَلِ وَالْقَوْلِ. وَنُؤْمِنُ بِه إِيمَانَ مَنْ رَجَاهُ مُوقِناً، وَأَنَابَ إِلَيْهِ مُؤْمِناً، وَخَنَعَ لَهُ مُذْعِناً، وَأَخْلَصَ لَهُ مُوَحِّداً، وَعَظَّمَهُ مُمَجِّداً، وَلاَذَ بِهِ رَاغِباً مُجْتَهِداً.

29 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 183, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Allah Who is recognized even though not seen, the Creator with no exertion. He put forth the creation with His Might, dominating over submitting rulers by His Power; Whose supremacy over great men is by His favors. It is He who made His creation to populate the world And to the jinn and humanity He sent messengers: to direct them about life, to warn them of its harm, to present to them its parallel events, to show them its defects and to place before them matters containing lessons about the wholesome and the sickly, its lawful things and the unlawful things And to all that Allah has ordained for the obedient and the disobedient, namely, Paradise and Hell and honor and disgrace الْحَمْدُ لله الْمَعْرُوفِ مِنْ غَيْرِ رُؤْيَة، وَالْخَالِقِ مِنْ غَيْرِ مَنْصَبَة، خَلَقَ الْخَلاَئِقَ بِقُدْرَتِهِ، وَاسْتَعْبَدَ الاَْرْبَابَ بِعِزَّتِهِ، وَسَادَ الْعُظَمَاءَ بِجُودِهِ، وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَسْكَنَ الدُّنْيَا خَلْقَهُ، وَبَعَثَ إِلَى الْجِنِّ وَالاِْنْسِ رُسُلَهُ، لِيَكْشِفُوا لَهُمْ عَنْ غِطَائِهَا، وَلِيُحَذِّرُوهُمْ مِنْ ضَرَّائِهَا، وَلِيَضْرِبُوا لَهُمْ أَمْثَالَهَا، وَلِيُبَصِّرُوهُم عُيُوبَهَا، وَلِيَهْجُمُوا عَلَيْهِمْ بِمُعْتَبَر مِنْ تَصَرُّفِ مَصَاحِّهَا وَأَسْقَامِهَا، وَحَلاَلِهَا وحَرَامِهَا، وَمَا أَعَدَّ سُبْحَانَهُ لِلْمُطِيعِينَ مِنْهُمْ وَالْعُصَاةِ مِنْ جَنَّة وَنَار، وَكَرَامَة وَهَوَان

31 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 191, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Allah Whose praise is well nigh, Whose army overpowers and Whose Sovereignty is grand. I praise Him for His continuous favors and His ever great gifts. Allah’s forbearance is so high that He forgives, and He is remarkably just in all that He decides. He knows what goes on and what has passed, Allah is the Crafter of creation by means of His knowledge, the Producer by His Wisdom with no learning or limitation, nor by following the example of others, yet, He does things without mistake or without the help of any others; الْحَمْدُ لله الْفَاشِي حَمْدُهُ، وَالْغَالِبِ جُنْدُهُ، وَالْمُتَعَالِي جَدُّهُ. أحْمَدُهُ عَلَى نِعَمِهِ التُّؤَامِ، وَآلاَئِهِ الْعِظَامِ، الَّذِي عَظُمَ حِلْمُهُ فَعَفَا، وَعَدَلَ فِي كُلِّ مَا قَضَى، وَعَلِمَ مَا يَمْضِي وَمَا مَضَى، مُبْتَدِعِ الْخَلاَئِقِ بِعِلْمِهِ، وَمُنْشِئِهِمْ بِْحُكْمِهِ، بِلاَ اقْتِدَاء وَلاَ تَعْلِيم، وَلاَ احْتِذَاء لِمِثَالِ صَانِع حَكِيم، وَلاَ إِصابَةِ خَطَأ، وَلاَ حَضْرَةِ مَلاَ

33 Nahjul Balaaghah in Allah's Praise In Sermon 213, Ali: In Praise of Allah Praise be to Allah High above any similarity to His creatures, above the words of describers, Who displays the wonders of His Works for the onlookers, Who is hidden from the speculation of thinkers by virtue of His Great Majesty, Allah has all knowledge but He did not acquire it neither by adding to it or drawing it, and He is the One Who ordains all matters without need for reflecting or thinking. He is such that darkness does not engulf Him, nor does He seek light from brightness, night does not overtake Him nor does the day pass over Him so as to affect Him His comprehension is not through eyes and His knowledge depends not on being informed. الْحَمْدُ لله الْعَلِيِّ عَنْ شَبَهِ الْـمَخْلُوقِينَ الْغَالِبِ لِمَقَالِ الْوَاصِفِينَ، الظَّاهِرِ بَعَجَائِبِ تَدْبِيرِهِ لِلنَّاظِرينَ، الْبَاطِنِ بِجَلاَلِ عِزَّتِهِ عَنْ فِكْرِ الْمُتَوَهِّمِينَ، الْعَالِمِ بَلاَ اكْتِسَاب وَلاَ ازْدِيَاد، وَلاَ عِلْم مُسْتَفَاد، الْمُقَدِّرِ لِجَميِعِ الاُْمُورِ بِلاَ رَوِيَّة وَلاَ ضَمِير، الَّذِي لاَ تَغْشَاهُ الظُّلَمُ، وَلاَ يَسْتَضِيءُ بِالاَْنْوَارِ، وَلاَ يَرْهَقُهُ لَيْلٌ، وَلاَ يَجْرِي عَلَيْهِ نَهَارٌ، لَيْسَ إِدْرَاكُهُ بِالاِْبْصَارِ، وَلاَ عِلْمُهُ بِالاِْخْبَارِ.
