SHAFAQNA – Dharar, a close companion of Imam Ali (AS) arrived at Shaam (Damascus) and Moawiyeh asked him about Imam Ali (AS). Dharar replied: I saw Ali (AS) when it was night and he was standing in praying alter (Mehraab), holding his beard in his hand and twisting like someone who was bitten by a snake, and whilst he was crying, said : “O’ world, O’ the Haram world; stay away from me, do you want to show off to me? Or have you fallen for me, so that you can find a place in my heart one day? This will never happen, deceive another one because I do not need you, I have divorced you three times so that there can be no return; your era is short, you are worth a little, and your wishes are wicked. Alas, the provision is little, and the road is long, destination is far away and the grandeur of the Day of Judgment!”
