Who is Ali ibn Abi Talib (as)??
Three morsels! Now think
three morsels in Aftar and Sahar
what were those three morsels?
Barley bread and salt
He was asked: O Ali why don’t you eat more than this?
he said I have a wish and it is
that I may meet my Lord with empty stomach
This was his fasting, the nineteenth morning reached
On the night before the nineteenth Ramadan he was guest of his daughter Umme Kalthum
On that night, this daughter invited such a father
The meal she put on table cloth was a glass of milk
some barley bread and salt
when he sat he said to his daughter: When have you seeN?
When have you seen your father having two meals on table cloth
this is the rule of Islam
This is the Islamic ruler, this is the reality of Islam
When she heard this she picked the salt
He said take away the milk. Why?
He broke his fast with barley bread and salt
لعل بالحجاز او الیمامه
من لاطمع له باالقرص
For that in his entire territory
from Hejaz to Yamamah, lest a table cloth is set
that his (Imam's) may be more rich than that table cloth
this is Ali the son of AbuTalib!
