ثُمَّ أَرْسَلَ إِلَى عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ (عليه السلام) فَقَالَ لَهُ مِثْلَ مَقَالَتِهِ لِلْقُرَشِيِّ فَقَالَ لَهُ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ (عليه السلام) أَ رَأَيْتَ إِنْ لَمْ أُقِرَّ لَكَ أَ لَيْسَ تَقْتُلُنِي كَمَا قَتَلْتَ الرَّجُلَ بِالْأَمْسِ فَقَالَ لَهُ يَزِيدُ لَعَنَهُ اللَّهُ بَلَى فَقَالَ لَهُ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ (عليه السلام) قَدْ أَقْرَرْتُ لَكَ بِمَا سَأَلْتَ أَنَا عَبْدٌ مُكْرَهٌ فَإِنْ شِئْتَ فَأَمْسِكْ وَ إِنْ شِئْتَ فَبِعْ فَقَالَ لَهُ يَزِيدُ لَعَنَهُ اللَّهُ أَوْلَى لَكَ حَقَنْتَ دَمَكَ وَ لَمْ يَنْقُصْكَ ذَلِكَ مِنْ شَرَفِكَ.


314. Then he (la) sent for Ali (asws) Bin Al-Husayn (asws). So he (la) said to him (asws) similar to what he (la) had said to the Qureyshi. Ali (asws) Bin Al-Husayn (asws) said to him (la): ‘Do you (la) see that if I (asws) do not accept you (la), you (la) kill me (asws) just as you (la) killed the man yesterday?’ Yazeed (la), may Allah (azwj) Curse him (la) said to him (asws), ‘Yes’. So Ali (asws) Bin Al-Husayn (asws) said to him (la): ‘I (asws) have accepted to you (la) with what you (la) asked. I (asws) am a humble slave (of Allah (azwj)), so if you (la) wish captivate me (asws) or if you (la) wish, release me’. So Yazeed (la) may Allah (azwj) Curse him (la) said to him (asws), ‘It is of a higher level (referring to the one whom he (la) had killed the day before) even if I (kill) or spare your (asws) blood it would not reduce your (asws) nobility’.
