Pearl of Wisdom

was once offered a sweet called faludhaj, so he placed it in front of him, saying, 'Verily you have a fragrant smell, are of a beautiful colour, and taste delicious, but I hate to habituate my soul [to anything] since it has not yet formed any habits.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Kanz al-'Ummal, no. 36549

When Amir al-mu'minin's men showed impatience on his delay in giving them permission to fight in Siffin E-mail
Sermon 54 When Amir al-mu'minin's men showed impatience on his delay in giving them permission to fight in Siffin , he said:

Well, as for your idea whether this (delay) is due to my unwillingness for death, then by Allah I do not care whether I proceed towards death or death advances towards me. As for your impression that it may be due to my misgivings about the people of Syria (ash-Sham) ,well by Allah, I did not put off war even for a day except in the hope that some group may join me, find guidance through me and see my light with their weak eyes. This is dearer to me than to kill them in the state of their misguidance although they would be bearing their own sins.
