Pearl of Wisdom

'I asked Abu 'Abdullah [al-Sadiq] (AS) about two groups of believers; one group were rebels and the other group just, and the just group defeated the rebels.' He (AS) said, 'The just group does not have the right to chase the retrieving fugitive or to kill a prisoner or finish off a wounded person, and this is of course when nobody from the rebels are left and no formation from them exists to return so that those who have remained may join them.'

Hafs Ibn Ghiyath
al-Kafi, v. 5, p. 32, no. 2

Sermon 238 When `Uthman ibn `Affan was surrounded, `Abdullah ibn al-`Abbas brought a letter to Amir al-mu'minin from `Uthman in which he expressed the desire that Amir al-mu'minin should leave for his estate Yanbu` so that the proposal that was being mooted out for him to become caliph should subside. `Uthman had this request earlier also. Upon this Amir al-mu'minin said to Ibn al-`Abbas:

O' Ibn al-`Abbas! `Uthman just wants to treat me like the water-drawing camel so that I may go forward and backward with the bucket. Once he sent me word that I should go out then sent me word that I should come back. Now, again he sends me word that I should go out. By Allah, I continued protecting him till I feared lest I become a sinner.
