In The Name Of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful

All Praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of the worlds;

The Beneficent, the Merciful:

the Master of the Day of Judgement;

Thee only we worship, and Thee we beseech for help;

Guide us to the straight path;

The path of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed favours,

not of those inflicted by Thy wrath, nor of those gone astray.

O Allah! send your blessings to the head of

Your messengers and the last of

Your prophets Muhammad, and his pure and cleansed progeny.

Also send Your blessings to all the

Prophets and Imams.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

This is a lecture on Nahjul Balaghah, which also clarifies some misunderstandings which some people had shown about this august book.

In the end I have given two miraculous sermons of Imam Ali (ع) which the Imam (ع) had delivered on two different occasions: the First, without dot and the Second without the letter Alif.

وأخر دعوانا أن الحمد لله ربّ العالمين
