ahlulbayt and policy 1

Imam ali wrote to Ash’ath ibn Qays, the Governer of Azarbaijan: Governance is not a hunt (means of living) for you. It’s rather a responsibility on you. The one who has appointed you to this duty, has tasked you with protecting it. You are not allowed to practice tyranny against the peasants.
Nahj al-Balagha, volume1, p366
