عَلِيٌّ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ الْحَجَّاجِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) قَالَ لَمَّا وَلِيَ عَلِيٌّ (عليه السلام) صَعِدَ الْمِنْبَرَ فَحَمِدَ اللَّهَ وَ أَثْنَى عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنِّي وَ اللَّهِ لَا أَرْزَؤُكُمْ مِنْ فَيْئِكُمْ دِرْهَماً مَا قَامَ لِي عِذْقٌ بِيَثْرِبَ فَلْيَصْدُقْكُمْ أَنْفُسُكُمْ أَ فَتَرَوْنِي مَانِعاً نَفْسِي وَ مُعْطِيَكُمْ قَالَ فَقَامَ إِلَيْهِ عَقِيلٌ فَقَالَ لَهُ وَ اللَّهِ لَتَجْعَلَنِّي وَ أَسْوَدَ بِالْمَدِينَةِ سَوَاءً فَقَالَ اجْلِسْ أَ مَا كَانَ هَاهُنَا أَحَدٌ يَتَكَلَّمُ غَيْرُكَ وَ مَا فَضْلُكَ عَلَيْهِ إِلَّا بِسَابِقَةٍ أَوْ بِتَقْوَى.


204. Ali, from his father, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from Abdul Rahmaan Bin Al-Hajjaaj, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, who has narrated the following: Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘When Ali (asws) became the ruler, he (asws) ascended the Pulpit. So he (asws) Praised Allah (azwj) and Extolled Him (azwj), then said: ‘By Allah (azwj)! I (asws) will not give you the sustenance from your spoils of war (Al-Fey) a single Dirham (more than what each of you deserve) so long as I have a palm tree left in Yasrab (Al-Medina). So be truthful to yourselves. Do you see what I (asws) have prevented from myself (asws) that I (asws) shall give it to you?’ So Aqeel stood up and said to him (asws), ‘By Allah (azwj)! You will consider me to be equal to a black man of Al-Medina?’ So he (asws) said: ‘Sit down! Is there not one here besides you to speak? And there is no preference to you except by a precedent (being foremost in Al-Islam) or by piety’.
