Nahjul Balagha

Sermon 65

When after the death of the Prophet news reached Ameerul Momineen about the happening in Saqifah, he enquired what the Ansars said. People said that they were asking for one chief from among them and one from the others, Ameerul Momineen said:

Why did you not argue against them (Ansar) that the Prophet had left his will that whoever is good among Ansar should be treated well and whoever is bad he should be forgiven.

People said: "What is there against them in it?" Imam said: "If the Government was for them there should have been no will in their favour." Then he said: "What did the Quraysh plead?" People said: "They argued that they belong to the lineal tree of the Prophet. Then Imam said: "They argued with the tree but spoiled the fruits."
