Real brotherhood

قال علي رضي الله عنه

إن أخاك الحق من كان معك

ومن يضر نفسه لينفعك

ومن إذا ريب زمان صدعك

شتت فيه شمله ليجمعك

إحياء علوم الدين

Ali رضي الله عنه said poetically:

Verily, your true brother is who is beside you,

Who will put himself into harm to benefit you,

And who, when the troubles of the time break you,

Will shatter himself to pieces in order to gather you.
