REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Sayyidina Ali bin Ali Thalib is an important figure in Islamic history. He is known as the fourth caliph after the Prophet Muhammad. Sayyidina Ali is also the cousin and son-in-law of the Prophet and the husband of Fatimah, the daughter of the Prophet.

In his work Al-Maktubat, the Turkic cleric, Badiuzzaman Said Nursi, recounts the great events that Sayyidina Ali experienced. In a war, Sayyidina Ali (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) engaged in a pitched battle with one of the leaders of the pagans. He successfully outmaneuvered and knocked out his opponent.

When Ali was about to kill her, she spat in her face. Eventually, Sayyidina Ali frees and leaves her. The pagan also looked at Sayyidina Ali's strange attitude and asked, “Why didn't you kill me?

Sayyidina Ali replied, “Initially, I wanted to kill you because of Allah. But when you spit on me, I was angry. Since the influence of lust has tarnished my dignity, I will not kill you either.

“My actions should provoke your anger more so that you kill me immediately. If your religion is so sacred and sincere, it must be the true religion,” the monk said.

In another event, Said Nursi also recounted a fair ruler sacking a judge when he saw him angry while carrying out a hand-cut execution of a thief.

If the judge cut off the thief's hand for the sake of upholding sharia and divine law, he should have shown pity for him and cut off his hand without showing anger and affection.

“Because lust played a part in the decision, while lust denied the purity of justice, the judge was removed from office,” Nursi said.
