Ali about the battle of Jamal

Unlike the Shiites, Ali disliked the happening of the battle of Jamal alot.  When he saw Talha after the battle was over, he said

رحمة الله عليك أبا محمد, يعزّ عليّ أن أراك مجدولاً تحت نجوم السماء, ثم قال: إلى الله أشكو عُجري وبُجري  أي سرائري وأحزاني التي تجول في جوفي- والله لوددت إني كنت مت قبل هذا اليوم بعشرين سنة

Abu Muhammad! Allah’s mercy be upon you! It hurts me alot to see you killed under the sky. Than he said : I complain to Allah of my sadness, By God! I wish I had died twenty years ago.
