Khalifa Ali bin Abu Talib - Anecdotes of Ali

He was not afraid of death

In the Battle of Siffin, Ali penetrated into the front ranks of the Syrian forces without any protective armor. One after another his assailants fell before the onslaught of his sword. His son Imam Hasan objected to such neglect to protect himself. Ali said, "It is immaterial to me whether I fall to death or death fall on me. I love death as much as a suckling loves the milk of his mother."
