SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: O’ people, there are many lessons for you from the past history, where are the high ranking people and their children? Where are the Pharaohs and their children? Where are the people of Ras (tree worshippers), those who killed the prophets of Allah (SWT) and extinguished the light of their tradition and revived the ways of oppressors and tyrants? Where are those massive conquering armies? .
 Nahjul Balaghah, Sermon Number 182.
