  1. As Imam a.s explains these Two categories are:
    1. “namely he who loves me too much and the love takes him away from rightfulness, “
    2. “and he who hates me too much and the hatred takes him away from rightfulness.”
  2. The majority that follows the truth; in this sermon imam a.s talks to Kharijites whom disobeyed Imam a.s and went against the majority of people that accepted him as leader. The community of mumineen (bleivers) are in the right path and if a group of them get misguided and distracted from right path other will inform them and try to guide them back to rightness.
  3. Imam a.s warn them about division and the importance of unity. Then Imam a.s tells them whoever calls to division must be killed even if that person is in position of the leader (because it is the way of shaitan)
