Khalifa Ali bin Abu Talib - Anecdotes of Ali

He would not break open the lock of the shop of God

Once, Aqueel, a brother of Ali, asked him to provide some relief for him as he was feeling sore. Ali said that when he got his usual allowance from the Baitul Mal, he would give something out of it to him. They did not satisfy Aqueel. Ali thereupon said, "Then you may break open the locks of the of the ships in the market." Aqeel said, "Do you want me to become a thief." Ali retorted, "Then do you want to break open the lock of the Shop of God and become a brigand instead of the custodian of the Baitul Mal."
