When Imam passed by the corpses of Talha and Abdur Rahman bin Attab bin Asid who were both killed in the battle of Jamal, he said:
Abu Muhammad (Talha) lies here away from his own place. By Allah, I did not like that the Quraysh should lie killed under the stars. I have avenged myself with the descendants of Abd Manaf, but the chief persons of Banu Jumah have escaped me. They had stretched their necks towards a matter for which they were not suited, and therefore their necks were broken before they reached the goal.
