551. Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, and Muhammad Bin Ali, together from ismail Bin Mahran, and Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Ahmad, from Ali Bin Al-hassan Al-Taymi, and Ali Bin Al-Husayn, from Ahmad Bin muhammad Bin Khalid, together from Ismail Bin Mahran, from Al-Munzar Bin Jayfar, from Al-Hakam Bin Zaheer, from Abdullah Bin Jareer Al-Abdy, from Al-Asbagh Bin Nubata who said: ‘There came to Amir-ul-Momineen (a.s.), Abdullah Bin Umar and a son of Abu Bakr, and Sa’d bin Abu Waqqas, seeking from him (a.s.) the preferential treatment for themselves. So he (a.s.) ascended the Pulpit, and the people turned their attention towards him (a.s.). So he (a.s.) said: ‘The Praise is due to Allah (azwj) to Whom belongs all Praise, and Who is extremely Generous. The descriptions do not fathom Him (azwj) nor is He (azwj) limited by the languages, nor can He (azwj) be understood by the wildest imaginations. And I (a.s.) testify that there is no god except Allah (azwj), One with no associates to Him (azwj), and that Muhammad (saww) is the Messenger (saww) of Allah (azwj), a Prophet (saww) of Guidance and a place for the piety, and a Messenger (saww) of the Highest Lord (azwj) who (saww) came with the Truth from the Presence of the Truth, to warn by the Enlightening Quran and the Illuminating Proof. So he (saww) declared by the Manifest Book and passed away upon what the former Messengers (saww) had passed away. Having said that, O you people! Do not speak of the men who were immersed in the world, and acquired properties, and made canals to flow, and rode plenty of animals, and cLuthed themselves with soft cLuthing, for that would became a source of shame and ignominy for them if the Forgiver does not Forgive them. If I (a.s.) were to prevent them from what they used to be in (affluent lifestyle) and take them to what is necessary for them, they would lose all that and they would be saying that the son (a.s.) of Abu Talib (a.s.) has been unjust to us and has prohibited us and prevented us from our rights. So, Allah (azwj) is the Helper against the one who (Prays) in our direction (Qiblah), and eats the animals slaughtered by us, and believes by our Prophet (saww), and testifies to what we testify, and enters our Religion, we (a.s.) will apply upon him the Judgements of the Quran, and the Limits of Al-Islam. There is no preference for anyone over anyone else except by the piety. Indeed! The pious ones have the highest Rewards in the Presence of Allah (azwj) the High, and the best Recompense and the Return. Allah (azwj) did not Make the world to be for the pious ones as a form of Reward, and what is in the Possession of Allah (azwj) is better for the righteous. People of the religion of Allah (azwj)! Consider what you find in the Book of Allah (azwj) and what you leave in the presence of the Rasool Allah (saww) and what you have been striving by for the Sake of Allah (azwj), either by nobility, or by lineage, or by deeds, or by obedience, or devotion, and regarding what you were interested in. So rush to your destinations, may Allah (azwj) have mercy upon you, which you have been Commanded to construct. Assets, which will not spoil and will remain, and will not diminish. The dwellings to which you have received invitations for, and are being encouraged to acquire, and recommended to be interested in, and the Rewards are Made to be in His (azwj) Presence. So seek the completion of the Bounties of Allah (azwj) by the submission to His (azwj) Judgement, and the appreciation for His (azwj) Favours. The one, who is unhappy with this, is not from us (a.s.), nor is he to us (a.s.). The rulers who judge by the Judgement of Allah (azwj), without being anxious from that, those are the successful ones’. (And in another copy: ‘They are not anxious, and those are the ones who have no fear upon them, nor shall they grieve’). And he (a.s.) said: ‘And I (a.s.) will discipline you with my (a.s.) whip which I discipline my (a.s.) family with, so do not worry, and I (a.s.) will be striking you by my whip by which I (a.s.) establish the Limits of my (a.s.) Lord (azwj). So do not be scared. Do you want that I (a.s.) should strike you by my (a.s.) sword? But rather, I (a.s.) am more knowing of that which you want, and how to straighten your unevenness. But, I (a.s.) will not buy your correction in exchange for spoiling myself (a.s.). However, Allah (azwj) will Make a people to overcome you and will exact my (a.s.) Revenge from you all. So you will have no world that you can enjoy in, and no Hereafter that you can look forward to. Thus, remote and crushed are the companions of the blazing Fire’.
