Pearl of Wisdom
to ['Abdullah] Ibn 'Abbas, who entered his tent while he was mending his sandal, and told him, 'The pilgrims have gathered to listen to you' 'I swear by Allah, these [sandals] have more value to me than ruling over you, except for being able to uphold the law and prevent wrongdoings.'
Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
