When Imam Ali (as) was hit with a poisoned sword on his head by Ibn Maljam (la), Amirul Mu'mineen (as) fell very ill. Upon examining the Imam, the doctor prescribed milk as the cure, as milk dissolves the poison in the body. Upon hearing this, the orphans and lovers of Amirul Mu'mineen (as) lined up with bowls of milk outside his home. Peace be upon you O’ father of the Orphans. May we be worthy enough to be called your Shia.
