Imám Hasan (A) and his slave
ImÃ¡m Hasan (A) was once sitting for dinner when his slave slipped and dropped some hot soup on the ImÃ¡m (A), scalding him. The fearful slave immediately recited the verse 3:134.
(The pious people) control their anger
The ImÃ¡m (A) smiled and said, "I am not angry". The slave then continued to recite the same Ã¡yat:
And pardon men
The ImÃ¡m (A) said, "I have forgiven you". The slave then recited the last part of the Ã¡yat:
And AllÃ¡h loves those who do good (to others). (Ãli ImrÃ¡n, 3:134)
The ImÃ¡m (A) then set the slave free and also gave him 1000 DinÃ¡rs.
This incident shows how an ordinary person with the help of the Holy Qurâ€™Ã¡n, obtained his freedom. It is also important to note how knowledgeable the slave had become, staying in the company of the ImÃ¡m (A).
