'Ali ibn Abi Thalib (k.w.) on the State of the Ummah during the Khulafah ar-Rashidin

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In another famous narration, a man from the Khwarij came to ‘Ali (k.w.) when he was the caliph, and said to him, “What is wrong with you, that the people disagreed on ‘Utsman and you, while they agreed on Abu Bakr and ‘Umar?”

‘Ali (k.w.) answered, “The people agreed on Abu Bakr and ‘Umar when the people were people like ‘Utsman and I, and they disagreed on ‘Utsman and I when they were people like you and your kind.”
