SERMON 69 | Nahj Al Balagha Sermons
Spoken on the morning of the day when Amir al-mu'minin was fatally struck with sword.
I was sitting when sleep overtook me. I saw the Prophet of Allah appear before me, and I said: â€œO' Prophet of Allah ! what crookedness and enmity I had to face from the people.
â€ The prophet of Allah said: â€œInvoke (Allah) evil upon them,â€ but I said, â€œAllah may change them for me with better ones and change me for them with a worse one.
as-Sayyid ar-Radi says: â€œal-awadâ€ means crookedness and â€œal-ladadâ€ means enmity, and this is the most eloquent expression.
