Imam Ali (as) described Jesus (as)

“ Imam Ali describing Prophet Jesus (AS):

It is reported that Imam ‘Ali (as ) said in one of his sermons:

“If you like, I will tell you about Jesus the son of Mary (AS). He used a stone as his pillow, wore coarse clothing and ate rough food. His stew was hunger and his lamp in the night was the moon. His shade in the winter was the east of the earth and its west. His fruit and his basil were what grows from the earth for the cattle. He had no wife to try him, and no son to grieve him. He had no wealth to distract him, nor greed to abase him. He had no mount to ride but his feet, and none were his servants but his own two hands.”

(Nahj al-Balaghah, Sermon 158).”
