The Judgement of 'Ali (k.w.) & Mu'awiyah (r.a.)
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (r.a.) wrote, in his Ihya’ ‘Ulum ad-Din, that Caliph ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz (r.a.) said, “I saw, in a dream, the Prophet (s.a.w.) sitting in the company of Abu Bakr asw-Swiddiq and ‘Umar ibn al-Khaththab. I greeted them and then sat down with them. Whilst I was seated, ‘Ali and Mu’awiyah were led into a room, and the door was closed on them while I watched.
At once, ‘Ali emerged declaring, ‘By the Lord of the Ka’bah, Judgement is Passed in my favour.’
Then Mu’awiyah came out immediately behind him and said, ‘By the Lord of the Ka’bah, I am Forgiven.’”
