Imam Ali (A.S.)

A father and a son were once guests of Imam Ali (A.S.). As they arrived, Imam Ali (A.S.) received them warmly and arranged for their comfortable accommodation.

After food had been served and eaten, Qambar, Imam Ali’s servant, brought a basin and a pitcher full of water for washing the guest’s hands. Imam Ali (A.S.) took the pitcher himself and asked the father to extend his hands so that he would pour the water.
