الرسالة ۷۹

و من كتاب له عليه السلام لما استخلف إلى أمراء الأجناد

اما بعد فانما اهلک من کان قبلکم انهم منعوا الناس الحق فاشتروه و اخذوهم بالباطل فاقتدوه

Letter 79

A Letter from Imam Ali (a.s)

[This is the order issued by Imam Ali (a) to his generals when he took over rulership of the Muslim State.] Verily, previous rulers have come to sad ends because they prevented people from getting their just rights, they got corrupted and could be purchased, when they were tempted by sins and vices, they were lead astray and they followed the wicked lead.
