Khalifah Ali

candleOne day Khalifah Ali was carefully recording all the money that came into the treasury and all that was spent from it by the light of a candle.

At that time, Talha and Jubair came to him for personal reasons.

When they sat down, Ali lit another candle and put out the first candle.

The guests exchanged a glance of surprise and then one of them asked: “O Ali, we have come on some important business. But why did you put out the first candle?”

“That was a candle bought with Treasury funds. As long as I worked for treasury, I used it. Now you have come for some personal work, so I use the candle bought from my personal fund.” replied the Khalifah.
