Letter 74

Written by Imam as a protocol between tribes of Rabi`ah and people of Yemen. Taken from the writing of Hisham ibn (Muhammad) al-Kalbi.

This indenture contains what people of Yemen, includingtownsmen and nomads, and tribes of Rabi`ah, including townsmen and nomads, have agreed upon: they will adhere to Book of Allah, will call to it and order according to it and respond to whoever calls to it and orders according to it. They will not sell it for any price nor accept any alternative for it. They will join hands against anyone who opposes it and abandons it. They will help one another. Their voice will be one. They will not break their pledge on account of rebuke of a rebuker, wrath of an angry person, humiliating treatment of one group to the other, or use of abusive terms by one party against the other. This pledge is binding on those of them who are present and those of them who are absent; those of them who are forbearingand those of them who are foolish; those of them who are learned and those of them who are ignorant. Along with this the pledge of Allah is also binding on them, and the pledge of Allah is to be accounted for.
