Ali bin Abi Talib peace be upon him 000 Helping the Orphans

One day, he saw a woman carrying a water-skin on her back. He took the water-skin from her and placed it on his back. When he inquired about her situation, she said

Ali ibn Abu-Talib sent my husband to the battle where he was killed. Now I am alone with my children and I have to work for others to make the ends meet

Imam `Ali returned home but had no peace of mind during the whole night. In the morning, he took a basket, put some meat, flour and dates in it and set out for the woman’s house

Some friends suggested to carry the basket but the Imam said, “Who will carry the heavy load for me on the Judgment Day?” Reaching the woman’s house, he knocked at the door

Who are you? I am the man who brought the water-skin for you. Now I have brought some food for the children

May Allah bless you and judge between us and `Ali.” She opened the door. Entering the house, he said, “I wish to do some good acts

Allow me either to knead the flour and bake it or to look after the children.” The woman said, “I will knead the flour

Imam `Ali too cooked the meat and fed the children with his own hand saying to each child while putting morsel in his mouth

My son, forgive `Ali if he has failed in his duty towards you.” When the bread was ready, the woman said, “O servant of Allah! Put fire in the oven

He did. When flames rose up, he brought his face near the fire and said, “Taste the heat of fire

It is the punishment for those who fail in their duty towards orphans and widows

By chance, a woman from the neighboring house came in. Recognizing him, she cried at the woman, “Woe to you, don’t you recognize the man who is helping you

He is Amir al-Mu’minin!” The widow came forward and shamefacedly cried, “Curse and shame to me. I beg your pardon

The Imam said, “No, I beg your pardon, for I failed in my duty towards you.
