Imam`s confrontation with Yazid bin Muawiyah
Our Maula, Ali ibn al-Husain Zainul Abideen (a.s) delivered the following
Sermon, in the court of Yazid ibn Muawiyah. He said:
In the name of Allah, the most Kind, the Most Merciful, and all Praise is to Allah, Lord of
The Worlds; May blessings and salutations be upon my grandfather Muhammad, and his
Pure perfect progeny.
All Praise is for Allah who has no beginning,
The Eternal who has no end,
The First, with no first before Him,
And the Last, with no Last after Him,
The One Who will remain after the annihilation of creation, He created mankind,
And ordained the nights and days,
And distributed among them (appropriate) portions,
So Glory be to Allah, the Master, the All-Knowing.
O people, I warn you about the world and what is in it,
For it is a place of termination and transference.
It is (constantly) moving with its inhabitants from one situation to another,
It has destroyed past generations and bygone nations,
Who had longer lives than yours,
And (who) built great dwellings,
And (who) had longer civilizations,
And (who) had more wealth.
The passing of time destroyed them,
And snakes and worms have overcome them.
The world has destroyed them as though they had never been its people or inhabitants;
The earth has eaten their flesh,
And broken up their limbs,
And wiped out their characteristics,
And changed their merits,
And the passing of time has transformed them,
So they are (now) calm among the army of the dead,
And they are suffering in the place of trials and misfortunes, awaiting the trumpet of the Day of Judgement and the coming of the Day of Calamity,
So that Allah may compensate those who sinned for what they did,
And compensate with kindness those who did good. (Holy Quran, 53:31)
