- Part of the army of Ali, the pious fighters who had adhered to Ali because of his
principles decided that submitting to the arbitration he had committed a sin in their view.
- Instead of fighting it on the battlefield and letting God decide what happens on the
battlefield, he went to arbitrators instead.
- Later on, it was one of the survivors who murdered Ali as he was coming to prayer. He
hit him with a poison sword.
