Ali’s advise to Buraidah

جاء بريدة حتى ركز رايته في وسط أسلم، ثمّ قال: لا اُبايع حتى يبايع عليّ! فقال عليّ عليه السلام: يا بريدة، ادخل فيما دخل فيه الناس، فإنّ اجتماعهم أحبّ إليّ من اختلافهم اليوم

[الشافي: 243:3، الدرجات الرفيعة: 403، بحارالأنوار: 392:28.]

Buraida came and put his flag in the middle of  (his tribe) Aslam and said : I will not give allegiance to anyone till Ali bin Abi Talib doesn’t give allegiance. So Ali said to him, O Buraida, you join the ones who give allegiance because I like unity more than disunity.

[Al-Shaafi 3/243, Darajat Al-Rafeeah p. 403, Bihar al Anwar 28/392]
