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.'

Imam Muhammad ibn Ali al-Baqir [as]
Tafsir al-Qummi, v. 1, p. 389

Letter 37 A letter to Mu'awiya.

Allahu Akbar! How hopelessly you are engulfed in your inordinate and sinful desires, how mercilessly you are swept by such vicious and unholy cravings which misguide you in this life and will bring you to a sad end. You have forsaken the cause of truth and justice and have arrogantly spurned the arguments which are agreeable to Allah and were unacceptable to man.
What do you mean by creating this faction and revolt with pretence of taking revenge on the murderers of Uthman?

The real facts of the case are that during the life of Caliph Uthman, you only went to his help when this action in the end was profitable to you and you could get something out of him, and you refused to help him when he was really in need of you and your support and for which he had frequently requested you.
