In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Ya Ali Madad! Ramadan Mubarak! On this third night of Holy Ramadan which started on Sunday evening, August 23, 2009, let us reflect deeply on the following sayings of NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) which have been extracted from a book entitled 'Peak of Eloquence NAHJUL BALAGHA'?Sermons, Letters and Sayings of Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib, published by Tahrike Tarsile Qur'an, Sixth U.S. Edition 1996:

Amir al-mu'minin, peace be upon him, said:
'Allah has placed on you some obligations which you should not ignore, has laid down for the limits which you should not transgress, has prohibited you from certain things which you should not violate, and has kept quiet about certain things, but He has not left them out by mistake so that you should not find them.'
(Source: Quotation number 105, p. 592)
Amir al-mu'minin, peace be upon him, said
'Fear! Fear! By Allah, He has hidden your sins so much so as though He has forgiven.'
(Source: Quotation number 30, p. 576)
Imam Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn Ali al-Baqir, peace be upon both of them, has related from Amir al-mu'minin, peace be upon him, that he said:
'There were two sources of deliverance from Allah's punishment, one of which has been raised up, while the other is before you. You should therefore adhere to it. The source of deliverance, which has been raised up is the Messenger of Allah (may He bless him and his descendants), while the source of deliverance that remains is the seeking of forgiveness. Allah, the Glorified, has said: "And Allah is not to chastise them while you are among them, nor is Allah to chastise them while yet they seek forgiveness". (Holy Qur'an, 8:33)'
(Source: Quotation number 88, page 588)
Amir al-mu'minin, peace be upon him, said:
'The Day of Judgement is near and our mutual company is short.' (Holy Qur'an, 8:33)'
(Source: Quotation number 168, page 606)

In this month of reflection, let us think of all our actions in the context of the above quotations and the following excerpt from a firman made by NOOR Mowlana Hazir Imam (a.s.) in Mumbai on November 27, 1973, in which he said:

'There are certain things which must be done in a physical sense and there are other things which must be done in a spiritual sense, and our Faith is quite clear as to what are the responsibilites, both in a physical and a spiritual sense, on our spiritual children... and at the end of your lives you must ask yourselves the question: "Have I fulfilled during my lifetime my physical and material responsibilites, as well as my spiritual responsibilites?". And remember that you will be judged on both.'
