Spoken on the morning of the day when Amír al-mu’minín was fatally struck with sword.
I was sitting when sleep overtook me. I saw the Prophet of Alláh appear before me, and I said: “O’ Prophet of Alláh! what crookedness and enmity I had to face from the people. “ The prophet of Alláh said: “Invoke (Alláh) evil upon them,” but I said, “Alláh may change them for me with better ones and change me for them with a worse one.
as-Sayyid ar-Radí says: “al-awad” means crookedness and “al-ladad” means enmity, and this is the most eloquent expression.
