The Punishment of The Believer and The Reward of The Mighty King

Imam Abou Abdellah (Pbuh) said: "In the time of Moussa (pbuh) there was a mighty king who once served a need for a believer through the intercession of a righteous servant. The might king and the righteous servant died on the same day. People closed the market for three days in respect of the mighty king and the righteous servant stayed for three days in his house and his cattle was stepping on his face. Moussa saw him after three days and so he said: "O Lord, this is an enemy of Yours and this is your follower." Allah inspired to Moussa: "O Moussa, my follower asked this mighty king for a need he has and so he served his need. Thus I rewarded him on the behalf of the believer. I ordered the cattle to deform the face of the believer because he asked the mighty king."
