Pearl of Wisdom

in his letter to Malik al-Ashtar when he appointed him governor of Egypt, said, '[Fear] Allah and keep Allah in view with respect to the lowest class, consisting of those who have few means: the poor, the destitute, the penniless and the disabled; because in this class are both the discontented and those who beg. Take care, for the sake of Allah, of His obligations for which He has made you responsible. Fix for them a share from the public treasury... Take care of the affairs of those of them who do not approach you because they are of unsightly appearance or those whom people regard as low. Appoint for them some trusted people who are God-fearing and humble. They should inform you of these people's conditions. Then deal with them with a sense of responsibility to Allah on the Day you will meet Him, because of all the subjects, these people are the most deserving of equitable treatment, while for others also you should fulfil their rights so as to render account to Allah.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Ibid. Letter 53

Question : #264 Category: Medical Issues
Subject: artificial limb requirements
Question: One of my legs has been amputated; when I wear the artificial leg, it injures the remaining intact part, of the amputated leg, causing bleeding whose area transgresses the canonical limitation (i.e. greater than a dirham’s area). May I perform my prayers and Hajj like that? Or ought I to remove the prosthetic leg and wash off the wound and perform the prayer / Hajj without the prostheses? What if performing such rituals is unbearably difficult without the assistance of my artificial limb?
Answer: Assuming the rinsing of such injuries is unbearably difficult either personally or according to laity, you have no duty in relation to it. Otherwise, you ought to wash the given area; moreover, you need not detach yourself from the prostheses (before carrying out the prayer/Hajj).
