Then you will make supplication and it will not be accepted". [At-Tirmidhi]

The principle of keeping judiciary independent of and over andabove the executive, administrative and military functions of theState was the main factor of the reforms introduced by him. Hewas very particular about this. So much so that historians narratethat once Imam Ali (A), on finding his (lost) armor in thepossession of a Christian man, took him to court and stood with hisopponent before Qazi Shurayh, his Chief Justice as a complainantand the Chief Justice wanted to give him a place of honour in thecourt and to treat him like a king or caliph. He reproached the judge for such a behaviour, saying that he was there as a plaintiff,and not as a king or caliph.Imam Ali (A) informed the judge: "It is my armor. I neither sold,nor donated it".The judge asked the Christian man: "What do you have to sayagainst what Amir al Momineen, Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib (as) says?""It is mine", said the Christian man. "Amir al Momineen, Imam Aliibn Abu Talib (as) is but a liar".The judge turned to Imam Ali (as), demanding that he shouldpresent his evidence proving that the armor was his. Imam Ali (as)smiled and said that he had no evidence. So, the judge issued hisdecision that the armor belonged to the Christian man.

You are aruler and a caliph, you could have easily ordered me to be killedand my property looted, and nobody would have dared to ask reasons of your actions, but you took the case against me to thecourt, and cheerfully accepted the decision against you; I havenever heard of such a ruler before you. Secondly, the thing thatyou claimed as yours is actually yours and not mine, but I knowthe persons who could provide proof of this are out of Kufa,therefore, I boldly said that it was mine, and not yours. That was alie, and now I am ashamed to feel that I have lied against such anhonourable person. You have heard me. Will you not allow me toenter the fold of Islam?"The great Imam enquired, "Are you of your free-will entering ourfold?""Yes", he replied, "Under your regime, I have nothing to lose by
