Pearl of Wisdom
in his will to his son after he had been struck by Ibn Muljam, 'Know that Mu'awiya will oppose you just as he opposed me, and in conciliating and making peace with him, you will be following in the footsteps of your grandfather (AS) when he conciliated with the Bani Qamra and the Bani Ashja' tribes ... and if instead you wish to fight your enemy, know that you will not find any from among your followers who will be loyal to you anymore than those loyal to your father.'
Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]

Ghusl for touching a dead body (Mase Mayyit)
If a person touches any part of a dead body including bone but not hair of a human being which has become overall cold and has yet not been given complete Ghusl-e- mayyit either consciously or unconsciously, voluntarily or involuntarily while a sleep or awake, with any part of his body including nail, he should do GHUSLE MASE MAYYIT (GHUSL FOR TOUCHING A DEAD BODY).
Therefore, those who performed Ghusl-e-Mayyit for the deseased person, having touched the body before three ghusls were completed shall have to do GHUSLE MASE MAYYIT. They cannot say their prayers or similar acts of worhip till they have done the Ghusl.
