The following excerpts are taken 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

Part 1: About the Greatness of Ahlu'l-bayt

Amirul-Momineen, NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) says:

"By Allah, I have knowledge of the conveyance of messages, fulfillment of promises and of entire expressions. We the people of the house (of the Prophet-Ahlu'l-bayt) possess the doors of wisdom and light of governance. Beware that the paths of religion are one and its highways are straight. He who follows them achieves the aim and secures the objective. And he who stood away from it went astray and incurred repentance."
Source: NAHJUL BALAGHA, Sermon 119, p. 267

Part 2: About the Ahlu'l-bayt

Amirul-Momineen, NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) says:

"He who has an intelligent mind looks to its goal. He knows his low road as well as his high road. The caller has called. The shepherd has tended his flocks. So respond to the caller and follow the shepherd."
Source: NAHJUL BALAGHA, Sermon 153, p. 314

Part 3: About Preaching and Counseling

Amirul-Momineen, NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) says:

"Allah may bless him who listens to a point of wisdom and retains it, when he is invited to the right path he approaches it, he follows a leader (by catching his waist band) and finds salvation, keeps Allah before his eyes and fears his sins, performs actions sincerely and acts virtuously, earns treasure of heavenly rewards, avoids vice, aims at (good) objective and reaps recompense, faces his desires and rejects (fake) hopes, makes endurance the means of his salvation and piety the provision for his death, rides on the path of honour and sticks to the highway of the truth, makes good use of his time and hastens towards end and takes with him the provision of (good) actions. "
Source: NAHJUL BALAGHA, Sermon 75, p. 201

Part 4: Supplication

Amirul-Momineen, NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) supplicates:

"O my Allah, Thou art the most attached to Thy lovers and the most ready to assist those who trust in Thee. Thou seest them in their concealments, knowest whatever is in their consciences, and art aware of the extent of their intelligence. Consequently, their secrets are open to Thee and their hearts are eager for Thee. If loneliness bores them, Thy remembrance gives them solace. If distresses befall them, they beseech Thy protection, because they know the reins of affairs are in Thy hands, and that their movements depend upon Thy commands.

O my Allah! If I am unable to express my request or cannot see my needs, then guide me towards my betterment and take my betterment and take my heart towards the correct goal. This is not against the mode of Thy guidance nor anything new against Thy ways of support.

O my Allah! Deal with me through Thy forgiveness and do not deal with me according to Thy justice."
Source: NAHJUL BALAGHA, Sermon 225, p. 446
