295 - When asked about Quraysh

When asked about Quraysh, Imam Ali (a.s) replied that:

Amongst them Bani Mukhzum are like sweet scented flower of Quraysh; their men are good to talk to and their women prove very good wives; Bani Abdush Shams are very intelligent and very prudent but we (of Bani Hashim) are very generous and very brave to face death. Bani Abdush Shams are more in numbers, ugly and intriguers but Bani Hashim are beautiful, good speakers and orators and very faithful as friends.

Ref: Nahjul Balagha [ Saying # 120 ]
