Imam Ali quotes in Fairness, Justice, and Extremism

1- “The people of this nation will split into seventy three sects. The worst among them is one that poses to love us and abandons our orders.”

Al-Ahadith Al-Muntaqat by Ibn Dayzeel p. 96

2- “There will be those that love me until they enter hellfire due to their love for me, and others that would hate me until they enter hellfire due to their hatred of me.”

Al-Sunnah by Ibn Abi Asim (983)

3- “Two groups of people, in relation to me, will be destroyed: an excessive lover and an excessive hater.”

Al-Sunnah by Ibn Abi Asim (984)

4- “There are three types of judges: Two in Hellfire and one in Heaven. The judges in hellfire are a deliberately unfair judge and a judge who sought justice but brought error. The other is one who wants justice and attains it, and he is in Heaven.” When asked about the type that intended justice but erred, he replied: “One who does not know how to judge should not be a judge.”

Al-Musannaf by Ibn Abi Shayba (22963)

5- He said to Abu Musa before the arbitration, “Make your ruling, even (if you decide) upon striking my neck.”

Ibn Abi Shayba in Al-Musannaf (37853)
