In the heat of the battle, the man spat his face and Ali forgave his life. Puzzled, the man asked why; and Ali said: a moment ago I was fighting and about to kill you in the name of Islam; now I am not so sure. The man asks: “Does your religion order you that?” and when he receives affirmative response, he becomes a Muslim.

What is the most authentic source of this incident?
