3ـ الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): إنّما أهلَكَ مَن كانَ قَبلَكُم أنَّهُم مَنَعُوا الناسَ الحَقَّ فاشتَرَوهُ ، وأخَذُوهُم بالباطِلِ فاقتَدَوهُ.

4– Imam Ali (AS) said, 'You know full well that he who is in charge of honour, people's lives, war booty, legal commandments and the leadership of the Muslims must not be a miser… nor should he accept bribes whilst governing for he would forfeit their rights, and base his rulings upon them
[the bribes] rather than proper judgment.’
