2500 Adages Of Imam Ali
by Imam Ali

A collection of traditional sayings of Ali.

This is a humble translation for a book that can be considered modern, but the information it contains are of antiquity. This is the book of "2500 adages for imam Ali (puh)." The book might not contain exactly that number of adages but it might be some number around that.

The book categorizes the adages and sayings in different chapters, each contain a specific branch of life. At the end of the book, there is the "poetic adages" which I have translated without keeping the rhyme, but meaning, as much as possible. The main translations are taken by meanings and not by translating word for word method, for there are different obstacles that are not avoidable in this way.

Imam Ali (puh) and Eloquence
Adages of imam Ali (puh) in noble manners
Adages of imam Ali (puh) in social relations
Adages of imam Ali (puh) in manners of speech and silence
His adages (puh) about wisdom and wise men, and the mind and the mindful men
Adages of imam Ali (puh) about the human nature
Adages of imam Ali (puh) about viceroys and rulers
Adages of imam Ali (puh) in the bad habits and avoiding them
Adages of imam Ali (puh) in satirizing the life
Adages of imam Ali (puh) in calling for the after-life
His adages (puh) about richness, poverty and money
Potic Adages

Most important sources of the book.used for this translation, and the principles of interpretation that have been followed in it, may be fitly reserved for the last.
