Pearl of Wisdom

with regards to Allah's verse: Do not be like her who would undo her yarn, breaking it up after [spinning it to) strength, by making your oaths a means of [mutual) deceit among yourselves ... , said, 'The one who undid her yarn was a woman from the tribe of Banitaym b. Murrah, called Rabita (Rayta), daughter of Ka'b b. Sa'd b. Taym b. Ka'b b. Lu'ayya b. Ghalib. She was a stupid woman who would spin hair, and after she had spun it, she would undo it then start to spin it all over again. So Allah said, ''Do not be like her who would undo her yarn ... Verily Allah, Blessed and most High, has commanded the fulfilment of the oath and has prohibited its breaking, and has made this a parable for them.'

Letter 57 While leaving Madina for Basra, Imam Ali (a) wrote the following letter to the people of Kufa. It is a wonderful epistle. It invites people to judge his intentions and actions.

After glorifying Allah and praising the Holy Prophet (s) let it be known to you that I am leaving this city either as an oppressor or oppressed, either I am revolting against the people or some of them have conspired to revolt against the people or against me. Whatever the case may be I invite in the Name of Allah those to whom this letter reaches, to come and see for themselves whether I am in the right or on the wrong. If they find me on the path of truth and justice they may help me and if they find that I am on the wrong then they can reason me out of it.
