Distributing wealth justly

SHAFAQNA – In his response to financial demand of Abdullah Ibn Zam’a from public treasury, Imam Ali (AS) said: These assets which you see, are neither mine nor yours, this booty has been gathered by Muslims who by their swords have managed to collect it. If you were with them in their Jihad, you will have a share as they do, otherwise product of their labour will not be for others to consume [1].
