Fazilat About Hazrat Imam Ali Ibn e Abi Talib a.s according to Hadith's of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad s.a.w .Open challenged & Proof to All the world .
Asalamoalaka ya Ameer ul Momineen Imam Ali Ibn Abitalib a.s.

  1. He is Salah Momineen .
  2. Allah's wish is only to remove uncleanness far from you, 
  3. O Folk of the Household; and cleanse you with a thorough cleansing."
  4. He is Syed ul Muslimeen .
  5. Abu Bakr says that the Holy Prophet said: "Looking at Ali is worship." 
  6. And whoever disputes with you concerning him, after the knowledge which has come unto you, say 
    (unto them): Come! We will summon our sons and your sons, and our women and your women, and ourselves 
    and yourselves, then we will pray humbly (to our Lord) and (solemnly) invoke the curse of Allah 
    upon those who lie." 
  7. He is Waris Alim Nabian s.a.w .
  8. Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.), accompanied Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Hussain (a.s.), went to meet the 
    Christians of Najran for "Mubahalah" (Malediction). When the Christians saw him coming with his 
    household, they were afraid of the consequences and excused themselves for not going through with
    the "Mubahalah" , and agreed to pay tribute in submission to his authority.
  9. "Only believers will love you and only hypocrites will hate you!
  10. When sura 108 (al-Kawthar) was revealed, the Prophet announced this great favour to his close companion Anas b. Malik, on whose authority this tradition is reported. Anas asked: 'What is al-Kawthar?' He answered: 'It is a river in Paradise, but neither those who violate my covenant (dhimma), nor those who shall kill the people of my House will be allowed to drink of it.' See the commentary on sura 108 in al-Suyuti.
  11. It is Narrated by H. Abu Bakr Siddiq that he heard from Holy Prophet s.a.w that He s.a.w says ,When Imam Ali (AS) came, the Prophet (SAW) summoned him to bend down and sit close to him so that
    he can speak with him privately. A while later the Prophet (SAW) told him "put my head on your
    lap for the order of God (for my death) has come. When my soul departs, take it with your hands
    and rub your face with it...." Later on people asked Imam Ali (AS) "O Abul Hassan, what did the
    Prophet (SAW) entrust to you before his death when he was talking to you privately"? Imam Ali (SA)
    said "the Prophet has taught me a thousand doors of knowledge and each door opened for me another
    thousand doors"! So in another words, in the span of a few minutes only the Prophet (SAW) taught
    Imam Ali (AS) one million "doors" of knowledge! Again the metaphor here is that the word "doors"
    stands for books of knowledge or chapters of knowledge! The prophet of God (SAW) has said: "I am
    the City of Knowledge and Ali is its Gate. If you want to get (close) to me you have to come through
    the Gate (Ali)"
  12. Finally, Shi'i tradition has always insisted on the great merit the faithful earn in making pilgrimage
    (ziyara) to the tomb of the Imam Husayn and the tombs of the men who were martyred with him.
    Yet Sunni tradition has likewise seen great merit in this pious act. Muhibb al-Din Ahmad b. Abd Allah al-Tabari, Dhakha'ir al- 'uqba (n.p., 1356), p. 151. Note also the popularity of the Mosque of the Head of the Imam Husayn in Cairo as a place of pilgrimage.
  13. The ziyara to the tomb of the martyred Imam has acquired this great significance in all Muslim tradition because the Imam and his fellow martyrs are seen as models of jihad in the way of God.
    It is related that the father of the Imams, 'Ali ibn Abi Talib, passed by Karbala' after the battle of
    Siffin. He took a handful of its soil and exclaimed: 'Ah, ah, on this spot some men will be slain, and will enter Paradise without reckoning!'  Shihab al-Din Ahmad b. Hajar al-Haytami al-Asqalani, Tahdhib al-tahdhib (Haydarabad [Deccan], 1325), II, 348.
  14. Ibn Katheer said that the people in the army started to talk about Ali (rah) because he prevented them from riding the camels and took back the new clothes that they acquired. Because of that, after the prophet ( peace be upon him ) was done with the Hajj and while returning back to Madina, he stopped to explain to the people how some of the qualities of Ali and stress the closeness of Ali to him and the importance of loving Ali.  He did so to remove what was in many of the hearts of some of the people against Ali.
  15. Imam Shafi'i says that this is the walaa of Al-islam because Allah(swt) says in the Quran (Surat Muhammad,verse 11: That is because Allah is the Protector (mawala) of those who believe, and because the unbelievers shall have no protector for them (47:11)
  16. Imam Ghazaali in his Ihya Fi Uloom ad-Deen, under the topic AL-EESAAR AL-AN NAFS.  writes that Allah sent called two of the great angels, Jibreel and Meekaa-eel and said: "I make you two brothers of each other. Now can one of you sacrifice his life for the other." Both declined to do that. Allah then pointed to Ali bin Abi Talib sleeping in the Prophet's bed and said: "There is a brother ready to sacrifice his life for another brother."
  17. Allah then commanded the two angels to go down and protect Ali bin Talib from the enemies. Thus the two angels came and Jibreel stood by Ali's headrest and Meekaa'eel by his feet. And they both were saying: "Bravo, bravo, O son of Abu Talib, Allah is taking pride in your act of self-sacrifice and showing your glory over the angels."
  18. In the Quran (Surat Al-hadid (The Iron), verse 15), Allah (swt) says: So today ransom shall not be accepted from you nor from those who disbelieved; your abode is the fire; it is your friend (mawlakum) and evil is the resort. He called the hell fire "mawla" for the extreme closeness to it by the kuffar.
  19. Allah (swt) says in the Quran (Surat At-tahrim ,verse 4): Then surely Allah it is Who is his Guardian (mawlah), and Jibreel and -the believers that do good, and the angels after that are the aiders.
  20. The spiritual unity of the ahl al-bayt, symbolized by the kisa', is in turn a symbol of the unity of all Muslims. It is for the sake of this unity in faith and commitment (islam) to God and the truth that the Imam Husayn sacrificed his life. He refused a partisan Islam when he refused to legitimize Umayyad rule. Because he refused humiliation, wrongdoing and deviation from the ideals of Islamic leadership as exemplified by the Prophet and his own father 'Ali, the Commander of the Faithful, the Imam Husayn drew once and for all the distinction between a true khalifa (representative) of the Apostle of God and the kings of this world. But above all, the Imam Husayn and his fellow martyrs accepted God's bargain with the people of faith to exchange their lives and wealth for the eternal bliss of Paradise. This divine challenge is no less relevant to the Muslim community today than it was fourteen hundred years ago. It invites us still to 'a garden whose breadth is greater than the heavens and earth, prepared for those who fear God'.  See 9:111.
  21. The Prophet (s) said, “The most knowledgeable person in my nation after me is Ali (a).” Manaqib Al-Imam Ali Ibn Abi TAlib (a) of Ibn Al-Maghazeli Al-Shafi^i.
  22. The Prophet (s) said, “Embellish your gatherings by mentioning Ali (a).” Mustadrak Al-Sahihain of Al-Hakim Al-Nisabori, 3/109; Musnad Ahmad, 4/368, 5/419; Al-Khasa’is of Al-Nisa’I, 9; Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 16; Al-Manaqib of Akhtab Khawarizm, 94; Tarikh Baghdad of Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdadi, 8/290; Yanabi^ Al-Mawda.
  23. The Prophet (s) said, “Embellish your gatherings by mentioning Ali (a).” Mustadrak Al-Sahihain of Al-Hakim Al-Nisabori, 3/109; Musnad Ahmad, 4/368, 5/419; Al-Khasa’is of Al-Nisa’I, 9; Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 16; Al-Manaqib of Akhtab Khawarizm, 94; Tarikh Baghdad of Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdadi, 8/290; Yanabi^ Al-Mawda.
  24. Hazrat Rasool Allah s.a.w says O Salam r.a ! My Caliph , My Brother , My Wasi & My Wazir which I had left them , because in of them high ranked Hazrat Ali Ibn e Abi Talib a.s, who paid my money debt (Amnant) & fulfilled my promises & spread my Deen e Islam .
  25. Nadra al-Azdiya, a woman who was contemporary with the Imam Husayn, is said to have reported: 'When al-Husayn b. 'Ali was killed, the sky rained down blood, so that next morning we found our
    wells and water jugs filled with it.' Abu Bakr Ahmad b Husayn b. al-Bayhaqi, Al-Sunan al-Kubra (Haydarabad, 1344), III, 337.
  26. The memory of the martyred Imam has been kept alive and nourished by the tears of the faithful who vicariously share in the tragedy of the Imam Husayn and his loved ones and friends. Here again, tradition has extended the grief displayed by the pious for the tragedy of Karbala' to the cosmic order. Thus al-Suyuti reports in his commentary on the verse describing God's compassion towards the ancient martyr John son of Zachariah that 'The heavens did not weep for the death of anyone except John son of Zachariah and al-Husayn b. 'Ali. Its redness [at sunset] is the sign of its weeping.' See the commentary on 19:13 in al-Suyuti.
  27. It has already been argued that there is an existential and all-inclusive unity between the Prophet and his daughter Fatima, her husband, 'Ali, and their two sons. This unity makes it impossible to discuss one without discussing all the others. We have, therefore, been concerned throughout this study
    with the Imam Husayn in the context of this essential unity. It must be added, however, that the Imam Husayn was especially close to the heart of his grandfather, the Prophet Muhammad. It is of Husayn alone that he declared: 'Husayn is of me and I am of Husayn. May God love those who love Husayn.' Al-Tirmidhi, II, 306.
  28. The Person who died in love of Hazrat Imam Ali a.s , he will go to in paradise .
  29. Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) received Imam Ali (a.s.) with a warm embrace and a kiss on the brow. 
  30. He said: "Ali, had I not been afraid that the Muslims would start regarding you as the Christians 
    regard Jesus, 
  31. I would have said things about you which would have made the Muslims venerate you 
    and to consider the dust of your feet as something worth venerating; but it will suffice to say 
    that you are from me and 
  32. I am from you; you will inherit me and I will inherit you; 
  33. You are to me what Aaron was to Moses; you will fight for my causes, 
  34. You will be nearest to me on the Day of Judgment; you will be next to me at the Fountain of Kausar; 
  35. Enmity against you is enmity against me; a war against you is a war against me;
  36. Your friendship is my friendship; to be at peace with you is to be at peace with me;
  37. Your flesh is my flesh; 
  38. Your blood is my blood; 
  39. who obeys you obeys me; 
  40. Truth is on your tongue, in your heart and in your mind. 
  41. You have as much faith in Allah as I have. 
  42. You are a door to me. 
  43. As per the order of Allah, I give you these tidings that 
  44. Your friends will be rewarded in Heaven and your enemies are doomed for Hell."
  45. Muhammad ibn Hammam narrated from Ja’far ibn Muhammad ibn Malik from Muhammad ibn Ahmad from Muhammad ibn Sinan from Yunus ibn Dhabyan that Abu Abd’ullah as-Sadiq (عليه سلام) had said:“When the night of Friday comes, Allah sends down a Malak to the lower heaven. When dawn comes, the Malak sits on a throne on the House (the Ka'bah), and sets minbars of light for Muhammad, `Ali, al-Hasan and Al-Husayn (عليه سلام). They ascend the mindbars. The Mala’ikah, the Nabiyyin and the Mu’minin are invited to gather before them. The gates of the heavens are opened. When the sun declines, the Prophet (صل الله عليه واله وسلام) says: 'O my Lord, carry out Your promise that You have promised of in Your Book by this verse, ‘Allah has promised to those of you who believe and do good tht Hu will most certainly make them rulers in the Earth as Hu made rulers those before them, and that Hu will most certainly establish for them their religion which Hu has chosen for them and that Hu will most certainly, after their fear, given them security in exchange.’" [Al-Qur'an, Sura 24:55]”
  46. The raj'a of Muhammad, `Ali, Hassan and Hussayn represents the return of the Imam al-Mahdi (عجل الله تعالي فرج الشريف) as "Muhammad," the reviver of Islam, of his Wazir and spiritual brother who is Al-Masih, and the male heirs of the Masihi throne that we see manifesting time and time again whether from the seed of Harun (عليه سلام) or from Imam `Ali (عليه سلام).
  47. The Prophet (s.a.w) said: "They are my Caliphs and the Imams of Muslims after me. The first of them is Ali; then al-Hasan; then al-Husain; then Ali son of al-Husain; then Muhammad son of Ali who has been mentioned 'al-Baqir' in the Torah (the old testament). O Jabir! You will meet him. When you see him, convey my greetings to him. He will be succeeded by his son, Ja'far al-Sadiq (the Truthful); then Musa son of Ja'far; then Ali son of Musa; then Muhammad son of Ali; then Ali son of Muhammad; then al-Hasan son of Ali. He will be followed by his son whose name and nick name will be the same as mine. He will be Proof of Allah (Hujjatullah) on the earth, and the one spared by Allah (Baqiyyatullah) to maintain the cause of faith among mankind. He shall conquer the whole world from the east to the west. So long will he remain hidden from the eyes of his followers and friends that the belief in his leadership will remain only in those hearts which have been tested by Allah for faith." 
    Jabir said: "O Messenger of Allah! Will his followers benefit from his seclusion?" The Prophet said: "Yes! by Him who sent me with prophethood! They will be guided by his light, and benefit from his leadership during his seclusion, just as people benefit from the sun even though it is hidden in the clouds. O Jabir! This is from the hidden secrets of Allah and the treasured knowledge of Allah. So guard it except from the people who deserve to know." (Kifayatul Athar, by al-Khazzaz, p53).
  48. The Prophet (s) said, “I am the warner, and the guide after me is Ali (a).” Musnad Ahmad, 1/151; Al-Tirmidhi, 2/135; Al-Khasa’is of Al-Nisa’I, 20; Kenz Al-Omal, 1/247; Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 222.
  49. It is Narrated by H.Ayesha Siddiqa that they heard from , Hazrat Rasool Allah s.a.w that He s.a.w says , On the day of Judgment &  there will be Sir at on the corner of the Hell , no one will crossed that one , only that one which had present ,  the Barat Nama or Letter / Prawna from Hazrat Ali Ibn e Abi Talib a.s .
  50. Muhibuddin Tabari in his book Dhakhai'r aI-Uqba fi Manaqib Dhawi aI-Ourba' quoting Ibn Abbas, the Prophet's cousin and companion says: "On the revelation of ayat al-Ma wadda people asked the Prophet as to who were his relatives whom they were required to love. The Prophet replied: Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain. (This is also stated by Ahmad in al-Manaqib').
  51. "But whoever disputes with you (0' Muhammad) in this matter after what has come to you of knowledge, then say: Come let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and our selves (anfus) (*) and yourselves, then let us beseech Allah and invoke His curse upon the liars." Holy Qur'an (3:6 1) (*) There is no English equivalent for the Arabic word nafs which is the singular form of anfus, the nearest meaning of which is like oneself or nearest and dearest of people. Early the next morning on the 24th of the lunar month of DhiThijja the Prophet in accordance with Allah's command came out to the meeting grounds. Carrying Husain in his arms and leading Hasan (our sons) by his hand, followed by his beloved daughter Fatima (our women), behind whom came Ali (our selves) carrying the banner of Islam. Seeing the Prophet was accompanied by his immediate family and convinced that Muhammad (s.a.w.) was truthful, otherwise he would not have dared to bring his dearest of kin along, the Christians hacked away from the maledictory confrontation and agreed to pay Jizya instead.
  52. Zamakhshari says in his book ~Al-Kashshaf: That (when this verse was revealed) the Prophet asked the Christians to a Muhahala (malediction) to invoke the curse of Allah on the liars. The Christians held a discourse among themselves that night. in which their leader Abdul Massih stated his views as follows: "By God, 0 Christians, you know that Muhammad is a God-sent Prophet, who has brought to you the final message from your Lord. By God, no nation ever dared to challenge a Prophet for malediction, but woe befell them. Not only will they perish but their children will also be afflicted with the curse'. Saying that it is better to reach a compromise with the Prophet. rather than challenge his truth and perish, Abdul Massih advised his party to stop hostilities and retain their religion, by submitting to the Prophet's terms. "So if you persist (for a confrontation), we will all perish. But if you want to keep your faith you should refuse (to have a showdown) and remain as you are. Therefore make peace with the man (the Prophet) and return to your land .
  53. Jalaluddin Suyuti relates that the Prophet's elder grandson Imam Hasan ibn Ali (a.s.) said in one of his sermons: "I am of the Ahlul-Bait' whose love Allah has made obligatory for every Muslim .
  54. Muhibuddin Tabari in his book Dhakhai'r aI-Uqba fi Manaqib Dhawi aI-Ourba' quoting Ibn Abbas, the Prophet's cousin and companion says: "On the revelation of ayat al-Ma wadda people asked the Prophet as to who were his relatives whom they were required to love. The Prophet replied: Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain. (This is also stated by Ahmad in al-Manaqib').
  55. "But whoever disputes with you (0' Muhammad) in this matter after what has come to you of knowledge, then say: Come let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and our selves (anfus) (*) and yourselves, then let us beseech Allah and invoke His curse upon the liars."Holy Qur'an (3:6 1) (*) There is no English equivalent for the Arabic word nafs which is the singular form of anfus, the nearest meaning of which is like oneself or nearest and dearest of people. Early the next morning on the 24th of the lunar month of DhiThijja the Prophet in accordance with Allah's command came out to the meeting grounds. Carrying Husain in his arms and leading Hasan (our sons) by his hand, followed by his beloved daughter Fatima (our women), behind whom came Ali (our selves) carrying the banner of Islam. Seeing the Prophet was accompanied by his immediate family and convinced that Muhammad (s.a.w.) was truthful, otherwise he would not have dared to bring his dearest of kin along, the Christians hacked away from the maledictory confrontation and agreed to pay Jizya instead.
  56. Zamakhshari says in his book ~Al-Kashshaf: That (when this verse was revealed) the Prophet asked the Christians to a Muhahala (malediction) to invoke the curse of Allah on the liars. The Christians held a discourse among themselves that night. in which their leader Abdul Massih stated his views as follows: "By God, 0 Christians, you know that Muhammad is a God-sent Prophet, who has brought to you the final message from your Lord. By God, no nation ever dared to challenge a Prophet for malediction, but woe befell them. Not only will they perish but their children will also be afflicted with the curse'. Saying that it is better to reach a compromise with the Prophet. rather than challenge his truth and perish, Abdul Massih advised his party to stop hostilities and retain their religion, by submitting to the Prophet's terms. "So if you persist (for a confrontation), we will all perish. But if you want to keep your faith you should refuse (to have a showdown) and remain as you are. Therefore make peace with the man (the Prophet) and return to your land .
  57. Zamakhshari continues: "the next day the Prophet. carrying Husain in his arms, leading Hasan by the hand; followed by his daughter Fatima, behind whom came Ali, entered the appointed place and was heard saying (to his AhluI-Bait): "When unyoke Allah, you all say: Amen.
  58. The pontiff of Najran on seeing the Prophet and his Ahlul-Bait. addressed the Christians:  "0' Christians. I am beholding such faces that if God wishes (for their sake), He would move mountains from their places. Do not accept their challenge for Mubahala for if you do you would all perish and there would remain no Christian on the face of the earth till the Day of Resurrection. Heeding his advice the Christians said to the Prophet: "0 Abul Qasim, we decided not to hold Mubahala with you. You keep your religion and we will keep ours.
  59. The Prophet told them: "If you refuse to hold (Mubahala), then submit, (accept Islam) and you will receive what the Muslims receive, and contribute what the Muslims contribute. ".
  60. Continuing his comments on the Mubahala verse', Zamakhshari lays emphasis on the position of the Ahlul-Bait by quoting the following narration from the Prophet's wife Aa'isha: He mentioned them Ahlul-Bait before mentioning the word selves' in order to highlight their position and their proximity (to Allah), and to stress their preference to selves', which could be sacrificed for them.. .
  61. There is no stronger evidence than this regarding the merits of the Ahl a1-Kisa` (Ahl al-Kisa is a term denoting those who gathered with the Prophet under his Kisa (cloak) whereupon the verse of purity was revealed: They are Ali, Fatima, Hasan, and Husain, as had been already discussed earlier.). It is the proof of the truthfulness of the Prophet's mission, because nobody however biased has narrated that they (the Christians) dared to accept that (the challenge for Mubahala)
  62. Allama Muhammad Husain Tabataba'i, the renowned modern day exegist, in his monumental commentary on the Holy Qur'an, Tafsir al-Mizan', referring to the verse those through whom Allah has cursed their enemies', says that these are none other than the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain. He adds ...this narration has been related by all traditionists and recorded by all compilers (of traditions) in their collections, such as Muslim in his Sahih' and Tirmidhi in his Sahih', besides historians have confirmed it as welt.
  63. But by taking along only these four and no one else besides the Prophet was showing the Muslims, that the best example for women is Fatima and the best example for boys are Hasan and Husain, according to the Qur'an's wordings, which also delicately used the word our selves for Ali, thereby pointing to his close proximity with the Prophet, and solving the question of succession once and for all.
  64. "Surely Allah and His angels bless the Prophet; 0 you who believe! call for (divine) blessings on him and salute him with a (becoming) salutation. Holy Qur'an (33:56) In this verse, the Muslims are ordered here to send blessings on the Prophet and his aal (progeny), a term exclusively reserved for Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain and their righteous descendants. The emphasis on the Prophet's aal in salutations is yet another indication of their pivotol position after the Prophet. By asking the Muslims to exalt them, Allah the Exalted was reminding the Muslim communities that He had chosen the Ahlul-Bait, for the role of leading the Muslim nation.
  65. "Only Allah is your Guardian and His Apostle and those who believe, those who keep up prayers and pay the poor-rate while in (Ruku'). And whoever takes Allah and His Apostle and those who believe as his guardian, then surely the party of Allah are they that shall be triumphant." Holy Qur'an (5:55-56)    
  66. Zamakhshari, in his Al-Kashshaf, says the following about this verse: "It was revealed in favour of Ali (May Allah enlighten his face) when a beggar asked him (for alms) while he was in the position of Ruku' during prayer, and he gave away his ring (in the some position).
  67. It seems it was loose on his little finger, for he did not exert any effort in taking it off, which would have nullified his prayer. If you ask; How could it be in favour of Ali (May Allah be pleased with him), when the wordings are in the collective form?' I say: The form is collective, though its instigator is a single-man, because this is to encourage people to follow his example and earn a similar reward, and also to draw attention (to the fact that) the believers must be extremely mindful and benevolent, towards the poor, in as much as, if a situation could not be postponed to after the prayer, it may not be delayed till having finished it.
  68. Wahidi, in Asbab al-Nuzul', citing Kalbi's narration concerning the cause for the revelation of this verse says: "The latter part of this verse is in favour of Ali ibn Abi Talib' (May Allah be gracious to him) because he gave a ring to a beggar while in Ruku'during prayer.
  69. "0 Prophet proclaim what has been revealed to you from your Lord, for if you do it not you have not conveyed His message, and Allah will protect you from the (evil designs of) people... Holy Our'an (5:67)
  70. The Prophet (s) said, “Exemption from the Hellfire comes with love for Ali (a).” Mustadrak Al-Sahihain of Al-Hakim Al-Nisabori, 2/241; Tarikh Baghdad of Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdadi, 6/851; Akhtab Khawarizm, 86; Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 90.
  71. The Prophet (s) said, “There would not be one sufficient for Fatima if God had not created Ali (a).” HAliyat Al-Awliya’, 1/34; Al-Riyadh Al-Nudhra, 2/177; Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 242; Al-Khawarizmi, 42; Yanabi^ Al-Mawda, 112.
  72. Muslim in his Sahih reported that Zeid Ibn Arqam said: "The Messenger of God stood at Ghadeer Khum
    (between Mecca and Medina), delivering to us a sermon. He praised the Almighty and preached and reminded us. Then he said: `O people, I am only human, the Messenger of my Lord is about to come to me, and I shall respond. I am leaving in you "Al-Thaqalain" (The Two Valuables). The first of the two is the Book of God. The guidance and the light are in it. Follow it and adhere to it. He urged people to follow the Book of God and induced them to do so. Then he said: "And members of my House. Remember God in dealing with the members of my House. (Repeating this three times.)"
  73. Asma Bint Omais (wife of Jaafar Al-Tayyar) said: "I heard the Messenger of God saying to Ali: You are to me like Haron to Moses, except that there shall be no Prophet after me."
  74. Al-Termathi recorded through his channel to Anas Ibn Malik that Anas reported: The Prophet sent Bara-ah with Abu Bakr, then he called him and said: No one ought to deliver this except a man from the members of my House. He called Ali and gave him the chapter."
  75. Ibn Husham in his Biography of the Prophet recorded that Mohammad Al-Baqir reported the following: "When Bara-ah was revealed to the Messenger, he sent Abu Bakr to lead the people in pilgrimage. The Prophet was told: Messenger of God, it would be good if you send Bara-ah with Abu Bakr so that he will announce it. The Prophet said: No one should deliver for me but a man from the members of my House. Then he called upon Ali Ibn Abu Talib and said to him: Take the verses at the beginning of Bara-ah . . . Ali went on, riding the camel of the Messenger, "Al-Adba," until he reached Abu Bakr on the road. Abu Bakr said: Are you a commander or commanded? Ali said: I am commanded, and they went on and Abu Bakr led the people in the Hajj, Pilgrimage... When the Day of Arafat came, Ali stood up and announced to the people what the Messenger ordered him to announce..."
  76. "The Messenger and the people departed for military operations in Tabook. Ali said to him: I will depart with you. The Prophet said to him: No. Ali became sad. The Messenger said to him: Are you not satisfied to be to me like Haron to Moses, except that you are not a prophet? It would not be proper that I leave unless you are my successor."
  77. Al-Hakim recorded also that Zeid Ibn Arqam said that the Prophet said on that day: "O people, I am leaving in you two elements if you follow you shall not go astray. They are the Book of God and the members of my House."
  78. "When the Messenger of God was coming from the Valedictory Pilgrimage, he stood at Ghadeer Khum.
    and said: I am about to be summoned (by God) and I will respond (to His call). I am leaving in you the Two Valuables: One of them is bigger than the other: the Book of God, and the members of my House. Beware how you shall treat them after me, for they shall not part from each other until they join me at the basin (on the Day of Judgment) . . ."
  79. The Imam Al-Nisa-i in his Al-Khassa-iss Al-Alaweyah (the distinctions of Ali) reported that when Jaafar Ibn Abu Talib and Zeid Ibn Haritha and Imam Ali disputed each other about the guardianship of the orphan of Hamzah, the Prince of Martyrs, the Messenger said: "Ali, you are to me like Haron to Moses..."
  80. It seems that this event was well known. Omar did not deny it when Ibn Abbas reminded him of it. Ibn Abbas reported the following: "... Omar said to me: Ibn Abbas, I see your man (Ali) is treated unjustly . . . I said: Ameer Al-Mumineen, give him his right. He pulled his hand from my hand and went on speaking to himself, then he stood waiting for me. When I came to him; he said: Ibn Abbas, I think they (the Qureshites) did not give him the leadership only because they thought he was too young for that... I said: By God, neither God nor His Messenger considered him too young when they ordered him to take the chapter of Bara-ah from your man. He (Omar) turned his face away from me and sped up and I went back."
  81. "The Messenger said to Ali: It would be necessary that I stay, or you stay (in Medina). So he left him in Medina. When the Messenger departed, some people said: He left Ali behind him only for something he hated about him. When this word reached Ali, he followed the Messenger (and informed the Messenger about what people were saying). The Messenger laughed and said: Ali, are you not satisfied to be to me like Haron was to Moses, except that you are not a prophet? Ali said: Yes, Messenger of God. The Messenger said: It is as I told you."
  82. "I came to Mecca and met Saad Ibn Abu Waqas, I asked him: "Did you hear any recommendation for Ali?" He said: I witnessed four for him, if one of them were for me, I would prefer it to having the whole world, living in it as long as Noah lived. The Messenger sent Abu Bakr with Bara-ah to the pagans of Quraish. He traveled a day and night, then the Prophet said to Ali: Follow Abu Bakr, take Bara-ah from him, and deliver it, and send Abu Bakr back to me. Abu Bakr came back crying. He said: Messenger of God, did any revelation come down concerning me? The Prophet said: None but good. No one should deliver for me except myself or a man from me, or he said: from the members of my House..."
  83. "Ibn Husham recorded in his Biography of the Prophet that the Prophet said to Ali on that day: "Ali, are you not satisfied to be to me like Haron was to Moses, except that there shall be no prophet after me?
  84. Al-Termathi recorded that Zeid Ibn Arqam reported that the Messenger of God said: "I am leaving in you what if you follow, you will never stray after me. One of them is bigger than the other. The Book of God, a robe extended from Heaven to earth, and the members of my House. They will never part with each other until they join me at the basin (on the Day of Judgment). Beware how you shall treat them after me."
  85. Muslim in his Sahih through channels to Saad Ibn Abu Waqas recorded that the Messenger said to Ali    on that day: "Are you not satisfied that you are to me like Haron to Moses, except that there shall be no prophet hood after me?"
  86. Abbas stated that this was by order from God.) That man was Ali Ibn Abu Talib. Let us try to understand what the Messenger meant by his saying "No one should deliver for me except a man from me (or from the members of my House)."
  87. The Messenger used to say: "Let the present inform the absent."
  88. The Messenger informed us that the members of his House during his lifetime were only four: Ali, Fatima, and their two children (Al-Hassan, and Al-Hussein). We have mentioned in the second chapter, vol. 1 of this book, several hadiths which indicate this. Of those hadiths is what Muslim reported through Saad Ibn Waqas: When this verse, `Let us invite our sons and your sons . . . ,' the Messenger called Ali, Fatima, and Hassan and Hussein, and said: God, these are the members of my House."
  89. "And the Prophet said to Ali: "You are to me like Haron to Moses except that there shall be no Prophet after me." The saying of the Prophet to Ali: You are to me like Haron to Moses .
  90. Holy Prophet except one person: That is Ali Ibn Abu Talib. Al-Hassan and Al-Hussein were still children and Fatima was a grown lady. Thus, when the Messenger said: "No one performs for me except a man from the members of my House," he had meant only Ali. Therefore, he sent him with the chapter of  Bara-ah
  91. The Holy Prophet never said to any one of these temporary deputies what he said to Ali: "You are to me like Haron to Moses...
  92. Al-Termathi in his authentic "Sunan" recorded that Zaid Ibn Arqam reported that the Messenger said: Whoever I am his Moula, Ali is his Moula.
  93. Imam Ahmad reported in his Musnad through his channel to Abdul-Rahman Ibn Abu Leila that he said:
    "I witnessed Ali at Al-Rahbah, asking people to testify. He said: I ask in the name of God whoever heard
    the Messenger of God saying on the Day of Ghadeer Khum: "Whoever I am his Moula, Ali is his Moula to
    stand up and testify. Abdul-Rahman said: Twelve companions who had attended the Battle of Badr stood up and I remember as if I am looking at one of them, and they said: "We testify that we heard the Messenger of God saying on the Day of Ghadeer Khum: Do I not have more authority over the believers than they have over themselves? . . ." We said: Yes, Messenger of God. He said: Whoever I am his Moula, Ali is his `Moula.' God, love whoever loves him, and be hostile to whoever is hostile to him.
  94. Ali is to slander the Messenger and to love him is to love the Messenger, and to be hostile to him is to be hostile to the Messenger.
  95. "The Messenger of God said: `Whoever obeys me obeys God, and whoever disobeys me disobeys God; and whoever obeys Ali obeys me; and whoever disobeys Ali disobeys me.'"
  96. As to the last content, "Whoever I am his Moula, Ali is his Mouls," it was reported by tens of his companions.
  97. Hubshi Ibn Janadah reported the following: "I heard the Messenger of God saying: Ali is from me and I am from him, and no one represents me except Ali." Al-Termathi in his authentic Sunan reported this hadith and said this is good, unusual, and authentic.
  98. Prophet said the following: ". . . O people, I am leaving in you two elements, you will never go astray if you follow them. They are the Book of God and the members of my House, my Itrah.' Then he said: Do you know that I have more authority over the believers than they have over themselves, (repeating that three times)? They said: Yes. The Messenger of God said: Whoever I am his Moula, this Ali is his Moula."
  99. The Messenger himself asked his Lord to love whoever loves Ali and be hostile to whoever is hostile to him.
  100. It is reported by Zeid Ibn Oufa that the Messenger of God said to Ali on the day of brotherhood (in the first year after the Hijra): "By the One Who sent me with the truth, I only preserved you for myself. You are to me like Haron to Moses, except that there shall be no prophet after me, and you are my brother and my heir...
  101. Imam Ahmad also reported in his Musnad (part 5, page 356) that the Messenger said to Buraidah: "Speak not ill of Ali for he is from me and I am from him, and he is your `Wali' after me."
  102. Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying " (33:33) The Identity of Ahlul-Bayt: Umm Salama, the wife of our beloved Prophet says, "Ayah 33 of surah 33 (Al-Ahzaab) was revealed to the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) when he was at my house. After this revelation, the Messenger of Allah called upon Ali, Fatima, Al-Hasan and Al-Husain to come to him and be under the mantle with him; then he proclaimed "O' Lord, these are my Ahlul-Bayt, I implore thee to cleanse them of all stigmas, and to purify them."
  103. Tibari, the great historian, writes in his interpretation of the Holy Qur'an that Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) said, "This Ayah was a revelation about me, Ali, Fatima, Al-Hasan and Al-Husain.
  104. Imam Ali and Om Selemah, wife of the Messenger who said:  "The Messenger held the hand of Ali at Ghadeer Khum. He raised it until we witnessed the whiteness of his armpit, and said: Whoever I am his Moula Ali is his `Moula'. Then he said: `O people, I am leaving in you `Al-Thaqalain' (The Two Valuables): `Kitabullah' (the Book of God) and my Itrah (my close relatives). And they will not part with each other until they join me at the Basin (on the Day of Judgment)."
  105. Ibn Jareer, Ibn Asim, Al-Mahamili in his Amali and Ibn Rahawaih recorded that Ali reported that the Messenger of God said: "Whoever God and His Messenger are his "Moula" (Guardian), this Ali is his Moula. I have left in you what if you adhere to, you will never go astray: the Book of God, His robe in His hand and in your hands, and the members of my House."
  106. The Messenger s.a.w said , Hazrat Ali a.s , is your Olil-Amr .
  107. It is narrated by H. Abu Bakr Siddiq , H.Umar Faroow , H. Usman Gani & H.Bibi Ayesha that we heard from Hazrat Muhmamad s.a.w , that He s.a.w says , The Person who who read Fazilat / Ranksabout Hazrat Ali a.s & he believe on his ranks , Allah Talah will forgave his all X-sins & Today sins .(Sahiah Buhari / Muslim)
  108.  The person who write one fazilat / ranks about Hazrat Ali a.s & he believe on his ranks & his ink of written remains till Angels pray & Estagfar for him.
  109. The Person who Listen one Fazilat / ranks about Hazrat Ali a.s & Allah Talah will forgave all his sin's . 
  110. The sin's which he has done from his eyes & to see the face /  ziyarats of Hazrat Ali a.s is Ibadat .
  111. It is narrated by H. Abu Bakr Siddiq , H.Umar Faroow , H. Usman Gani & H.Bibi Ayesha that we heard from Hazrat Muhmamad s.a.w , that He s.a.w says , Hazrat Ali a.s name is written on every door of Paradise / Jannat .(Sahiah Buhari / Muslim / Termandi)
  112. Angles takes permission from Hazrat Imam Ali ibn e Abi Talib a.s ,& his 11 sons as well as now (they    take permission from 12th Imam) Hazrat Hujat ul Qaim , Sahib ul Amer , Hujat Allah  Hazrat Imam Muhammad Mahdi a.s what to do & what not to do & decide what to do now & what to next year .(see & read Saroot Qadr qur.30).
  113. The Prophet (s) said, “For the one who believes and trusts in me, I recommend the wilayat of Ali (a).” Al-Jami^ of Al-Suyuti, 1/230; Al-Riyadh Al-Nudhra, 2/168; Tarikh Baghdad of Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdadi, 1/316; Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 49; Yanabi^ Al-Mawda, 266.
  114. Abu Dharr al-Ghifari says that one day he was praying with the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) when a beggar came to the Prophet’s mosque. None responded to his pleas. The beggar raised his hands towards heavens and said, Allah! Be a witness that I came to the Prophet’s Mosque and no one gave me anything. Ali (a.s.) was bowing, in ruku at that time. He pointed his little finger, on which was a ring, towards him who came forward and took away the ring. This incident occurred in the Holy Prophet’s (s.a.w.) presence who raised his face towards heavens and prayed : O Lord! My brother Musa had begged to You to open his chest to make his work easy for him, to loosen the knot of his tongue so that people might understand him and to appoint from among his relations his brother, as his vizier, and to strengthen his back with Harun and to make Harun his partner in his work. O Allah! You said to Musa, We will strengthen your arms with your brother. No one will now have an access to either of you! O Allah! I am Mohammed and You have given me distinction. Open my chest for me, make my work easy for me and from my family appoint my brother Ali as my vizier Strengthen my back with him.The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) had not yet finished his prayers when Jibrael (a.s.) brought the above quoted verse. At-Tabari: at-Tafsir, vol.6, pg 186, As-Suyuti : ad- Durrul Manthur, Vol. 2, Pgs. 293-4 
  115. “This day have I perfected unto you your religion and completed upon you My Blessings, and I am well-pleased with Islam as your religion.” (Ch. 5, Verse 3). Then the Prophet bent down and lifted up Ali in his hands, showing him to the crowds on all sides of the pulpit, aid proclaimed, “Mun Kunto Maulaho fe haaza Ali-yun Maulah”
    “Of whomsoever I am the Master (Mauls), this Ali is his Master (Mania)”. So saying the Prophet raised up his hands heavenwards and prayed, “O our God, love those who will love Ali, despise those who will despise him; support those who will support him; sad reject those who will reject him.
  116. "...say (0' Muhammad unto mankind): I do not ask of you any reward for it (preaching the message), but love for my near relatives Ahlul-Bait'; and whoever earns good, we give him more of good therein;... Holy Our'an (42:23) The Prophet (s.a.w.) explicitly told the Muslims that this verse refers to his Ahlul-Bait that is Ali, Fatima, Hasan, and Husain and urged them to obey and follow these illustrious personalities after him.
  117. It is Narrated by H.Ayesha Siddiqa that they heard from , Hazrat Rasool Allah s.a.w that He s.a.w says , Now O Ali a.s ! The person who loves with you by heart , so he completed 1/4 th of Iyyman ,
  118. The person who loves with you by both  tongue & heart , so he completed 2 Thai Iyyman , &
  119. The person who loves with heart & tongue & hands or practical , all of your loved with you deeply so he completed all Iyyman .
  120. The Prophet (s) said, “The first of you to reach the Pond is the first of you who accepted Islam: Ali (a).” Kenz Al-Omal, 6/154; Al-Tabarani, 5/32; Al-Riyadh Al-Nudhra, 1/165; Dhaka’ir Al-^Aqi, 65; Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 230.
  121. The Prophet (s) said, “No one is permitted on the Bridge except by the wilayat of Ali (a).” Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 15; Al-Isti^ab, 2/457.
  122. Announcing this thrice, he got down from the raised platform, and seated Ali in a tent, where the people did him homage. Omar bin Al-Khatab was the first to cong­ratulate Ali and to acknowledge him ‘Guardian of all Believers’
    Saying “Bakhin bakhin laka ibne Abi Talih Asbahta Maul ayee
    Wa Maula kulla Momineen wa Mominaatin.”
    “Greetings be to thee O son of Abu Talib!
    Thou hast dawned as my Leader and the Leader of all faithful men and women.”
  123. Wahidee in Asbab-un-Nuzool; Suyuti in Tafseer-e-­Durr-i-Mansoor; Shaukani in Tafseer Fathul Qadir and Sideeq Hasan Khan in Fathul Bayan mention a tradition noted by Ibn Abi Hatim and other scholars from Abu Saeed Khudri in which it is stated that the verse “O Mes­senger! Make known what has been revealed unto you by your Lord and if you do not do so you have not made known your message.” The Quran Ch. 5, verse 67-was revealed on the occasion of the event at Ghadir-E-Khum in honor of Ali. Moreover in another tradition which has been quoted by Aini in his annotation of Saheeh Bukharee, this verse is paraphrased as “O Messenger! Proclaim the order which your Lord has passed and revealed unto you in honor of Ali Ibn Abu Talib.” So when this verse was revealed the Apostle held Ali by his hand and said, “Ali is also Lord of him who has taken me as his Lord.” Many similar quotations are given by historians and the names of a few are mentioned below:- Abul Fida, Ibn Khallakan in Wafiyat-ul-A’ yaan; Hakini in his Mustadrak; Nasaee in Kitabul Khasais; lbn Hajar Makki in Sawaiq-i-Muhriqa; Rawdzat-ul~Ahbab; Naisha­puri in Tafseer Gharaibul Quran, Hafiz Ibn Mardwaih and Hafiz Abu Naeem from Abu Saeed Khudri. Muhammad Ibn Saalim Hanafi remarks in his marginal note on Sirajul Muneer-i-Azeezee, an annotation of Jam’i Sagheer of Suyuti, that when the Apostle delivered his speech “Ali is also the Lord of him who has me for his Lord, and some of the people inquired of the Holy Pro­phet, “Was it not sufficient for us to profess the ‘Creed of evidence, say our prayers and give alms with strict regularity, that the superiority and Lordship of Abu Talib’s son is now being imposed upon us? Do you commission us in this matter of your own accord, or is it ordered by Allah?” The Apostle replied, “By Him other than whom there is no one to be worshipped, this is the order of Allah”.
  124. Tafseer-o-Sa’labi, Noor-ul-Absar, Seerat-ul-Halabiyah and Mustadrak relate that when on that day a man named Haris, son of No’man Fihri refused to acknowledge Ali as his leader and disputed with the Holy Prophet on this matter and said, “O Allah! If this be truly Thy Command then either rain down stones from heaven upon Muhammad or punish us.” A large stone fell upon him from heaven so that he was killed, just as the army of Abraha and their elephants had been killed before.
  125. The first face that little Ali (A.S.) saw in this world was the smiling face of the Apostle of Allah, Muhammad (S.A.W.), whom he greeted thus: "Assalaamo alaika ya Rasoolallah (Peace be upon thee O Prophet of Allah). Muhammad (S.A.W.) lovingly took him into his arms. The child accepted no other food other than the moisture of Muhammad's tongue, which he sucked for several days after his birth.
  126. The Prophet (s) said, “No one can give account of me but Ali (a).” Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 119, 242; Al-Riyadh Al-Nudhra, 2/177; Yanabi^ Al-Mawda, 112, 419; Al-Khawarizmi, 253.
  127. The Prophet (s) said, “The most miserable person from the beginning of the world to the end is the murderer of Ali (a).” Mustadrak Al-Sahihain of Al-Hakim Al-Nisabori, 3/141; Musnad Ahmad, 4/263; Al-Khasa’is of Al-Nisa’i 39; Al-Tabari, 2/408; Kenz Al-Omal, 5/58.
  128. The Prophet (s) said, “There is a tree in Paradise called Tuba. Its roots are in the house of Ali, and its branch is Ali (a).” Mustadrak Al-Sahihain of Al-Hakim Al-Nisabori, 3/109; Musnad Ahmad, 4/370; Al-Khasa’is of Al-Nisa’i, 25; Al-Tirmidhi; Al-Tabarani.
  129. Abdullah Ibn Omar, well known and righteous, refused to assist Ali or to elect him though he reported that the Messenger said: " . . . Whoever dies while he does not owe any allegiance to a caliph, he would die a pre-Islamic death."
  130. Holy Prophet spoke to them saying, (and the Imam Ali reported it): "O children of Abdul-Muttalib, by    God, I know of no young man from among the Arabs ever brought his people better than I brought to you. I have brought to you the best for you in this world and in the Hereafter.
  131. Certainly, God has commanded me to invite you to it. Who is among you that will be my minister in this mission and he will become my brother, my executor and my successor among you?" The audience kept silent. Ali said, "Prophet of God, I will be your minister in this mission." He held my neck and said: "This is my brother, my executor, and my successor among you. Listen to him and obey him." The group laughed, saying to Abu Talib: "He commanded you to listen to your son and to obey him!"
  132. The high ranks which were bestowed upon him were only by the order of God and as a reward from God to Ali for his promise of assistance which the Almighty knew that it will be implemented with unparalleled sincerity. All that indicates that Ali, while he was in his childhood, was above the rest of men and his brilliant future made him the candidate whom the Almighty chose to succeed His Messenger.
  133. "... O people, understand my word, for I have delivered the Message. I have left for you what if you fortify yourselves with, you will never go astray, a clear instruction: The Book of God, and `Sunnah' of His Prophet..."
  134. Holy Prophet announced the names of the members of the House who lived with him. We have
    mentioned in the second chapter that Saad Ibn Abu Waqass reported that the Holy Prophet on the day of
    Mubahalah (contesting prayer) said: "God, these (Ali, Fatimah, Al-Hassan, and Al-Hussein) are the members of my house."
  135. Om Saleem, the flesh of Ali is from my flesh and his blood is from my blood, and he is to me like Haron to Moses.''
  136. "And I have left for you what you will not go astray if you fortify yourselves with: The book of God, and you
    shall be questioned about it."
  137. "Whoever knows me, I am the one whom he knows, and whoever does not know me, I am Abu Zaharr. I heard the Prophet saying: The position of the members of my House among you is the position of Noah's ark and his people. Whoever embarked on it was saved, and whoever failed to embark on it was drowned."
  138. Al- Bukhari recorded that Saad Ibn Abu Waqas reported the following: "The Messenger of God took a journey to Tabook, and he appointed Ali to succeed him in Medina. Ali said to the Prophet: `Do you leave me with the children and the women?' The Messenger replied: `Are you not satisfied to be to me like Haron to Moses, except that there shall be no Prophet after me?'"
  139. Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Sa-eed Al-Khidri reported that the Messenger of God said: "I am about to be summoned by God and I shall respond. I am leaving in you the Two Valuables: The Book of God and the members of my House. The Almighty informed me that they will never part with each other until they join me at the Basin (on the Day of Judgment). Beware how you shall treat them after me."
  140. Imam Ahmad in his Musnad recorded that Abu Bakr said: The Prophet sent me with the chapter of Bara-ah to the people of Mecca: "No pagan should make a pilgrimage after this year. No naked shall circumnavigate around the Ancient House. No one shall enter Paradise except a Muslim soul. Any Pagan community that has between them and the Messenger of God a peace accord, the accord will end by the end of the specified period (without extension), and God and His Messenger are clear of the pagans." Abu Bakr traveled on for three days, then the Prophet said to Ali: "Follow him and send Abu Bakr back to me, and go on to deliver the message yourself." Ali did that and Abu Bakr came back to the Prophet. He wept and said: Messenger of God, did anything happen concerning me? The Prophet said that nothing happened but good. "But I am commanded that no one should deliver it except myself or a man from me."
  141. The Messenger spoke about Ali's leadership on an occasion other than the occasion of Ghadeer Khum. Al- Termathi in his authentic Sunnan recorded that Imran Ibn Hossain reported that four men complained about Ali to the Messenger of God, and the Messenger was angry and said to them: "What do you want from Ali? What do you want from Ali? What do you want from Ali? Ali is from me and I am from him. And he is the Wali (Guardian) of every believer after me."
  142. The Imam Ali in one of his sermons reported that the Holy Prophet told him during the period of the  commencement of his prophet hood: "Ali, you hear what I hear, and you see what I see, but you are not a prophet, and you are on the right path."
  143. Imam Ahmad recorded through his channel to Sa-eed Ibn Jubair that Ibn Jubair said that Ibn Abbas reported that Buraidah Al-Aslami said: "I went with an expedition under Ali's leadership to Yemen, and I noticed from him an unfriendly attitude. When I came to the Messenger of God, I mentioned Ali and spoke ill of him. I noticed the face of the Messenger was changing. He said: Buraidah, do I have more authority over the believers than they have over themselves? I said: Yes, Messenger of God. He said: Whoever I am his , Moula' Ali is his `Moula.'"
  144. "Certainly God has chosen Adam and Noah, the family of Abraham, and the family of Imran above all    people. Off springs, one is from the other. And God hears and knows all things."
  145. "Certainly God wants only to remove all abominations from you, ye members of the House, and to make you pure and spotless" was revealed and Ali, Fatima, Hassan, and Hussein were with him, he took the surplus of his cloak and covered them with it. Then he stuck his hand out and turned it towards the sky and said: "God, these are the members of my House and the closest to me. I ask Thee to remove all abomination from them, and to make them pure and spotless. . ."
  146. Imam Ahmad in his Musnad (part 4, page 437) reported this hadith with little difference in wording, and
    he said that the Prophet said: "Leave Ali alone, leave Ali alone, leave Ali alone. Ali is from me and I am from him. And he is the `Wali' (Guardian) of every believer."
  147. Al-Tabari recorded that Ibn Abbas reported that the Messenger said to Ali on the day of brotherhood (this was eight years before the occasion of Tabook): ". . . Ali, were you angry with me (showing his love to Ali as a brother shows his love to his brother) when I made brotherhoods between the Meccans and the Medinites and I did not make a brotherhood between you and any of them? Are you not satisfied to be to me like Haron to Moses, except that there shall be no Prophet after me?"
  148. Om Selemah (wife of the Messenger) said: "The Messenger of God held the hand of Ali at Ghadeer Khum and lifted it. . . Then he said: `Whoever I am his "Moula" Ali is his "Moula" '. Then he said: `O people, I am leaving in you the Two Valuables: The Book of God, and the members of my House. They will never part with each other until they join me at the Basin (on the Day of Judgment).'"
  149. He also prayed for the members of his House in his daily prayers, and he taught the Muslims to say when they pray for him: "God, I ask Thee to honor Mohammad and the members of his House as Thou have honored the members of the House of Abraham. Certainly Thou art The Praised, the Glorious."
  150. Al-Hakim recorded that Abdullah Ibn Jaafar Ibn Abu Talib reported that his father said:
    "When the Messenger of God witnessed the mercy of God coming down, he said: `Call for me, call for me.' Safiyah said: `Whom should we call for you, Messenger of God?' He said: `Members of my House: Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Hussein.' They were brought to him. He then covered them with his garment, then raised his two hands, and said: `God, these are the members of my House. I ask Thee to honor Mohammad and the members of the House of Mohammad.' God revealed the following verse: `Certainly, God wants to remove the abomination from you, members of the House, and to purify you and make you spotless."
  151. Whoever I am his Moula Ali is his Moula, nothing could be meant by the word Moula but the leader (the guardian), or the one who was given by God the right to administer the affairs of the Muslims. The Messenger declares that Ali is like him in that.
  152. Al-Bukhari also reported that Saad said: "The Prophet said to Ali: Are you not satisfied to be to me like Haron to Moses?''
  153. Then he said: "Certainly God is my `Moula' (Guardian), and I am the guardian of the believers. Do you not know that I have more authority over you than you have over yourselves? We said: Yes. He said this three times. Then he held your hand, Commander of Believers (the reporting companions were addressing the Imam Ali), and lifted it and said: `Whoever I am his Moula (Guardian) this is his `Moula' God, love whoever loves him and be hostile to whoever is hostile to him.'
  154. The Imam Ali said to the testifying companions: You have told the truth, and I am among those who bear witness to that."
  155. Abdullah Ibn Omar said to him: "The Messenger of God sent Abu Bakr and Omar with the chapter of    Bara-ah to the people of Mecca. The two men went on and suddenly a man overtook them. They asked: Who is this? He said: I am Ali. Abu Bakr, give me the written message which you have. Abu Bakr said: What happened concerning me? Ali said: By God, I did not know but good. Ali took the written message and went on, and Abu Bakr and Omar went back to Medina and said: Messenger of God, what happened to us? He said nothing but good, but I am told: No one should deliver for you but you, or a man from you."
  156. Al-Nisa-i in his book "Al-Khasa-is Al-Alaweyah" (Distinctions of Ali) reported that the Messenger of God
    sent the chapter of Bara-ah to Mecca with Abu Bakr. Then he ordered Ali to follow him. He told him: Take the written message from Abu Bakr and go to the people of Mecca. Ali reached Abu Bakr and took the message from him. Abu Bakr sadly went back and said to the Messenger: Did any Revelation come down concerning me? The Prophet said: No, but I am commanded that either I should deliver it, or a man from the members of my House.
  157. Imam Ahmad in his Musnad reported that Zeid Ibn Thabit reported that the Messenger of God said: "I am
    leaving in you two caliphs: The Book of God, and the members of my House. Beware how you shall treat them after me, for they will never part with each other until they join me at the Basin (on the Day of Judgment)."
  158. Al-Hassan Ibn Badr, Al-Hakim in his book Al-Kuna, Al-Shirazi in Al-Alqab, and Ibn Al-Najjar reported that
    the Messenger said to Ali while Abu Bakr, Omar, and Abu Obeidah Ibn Al-Jarrah were with the Prophet: "Ali, you are the first of the believers in belief and their first in Islam, and you are to me like Haron to Moses..."
  159. The Prophet (s) said, “Ali (a) is the distinguisher between truth and falsehood.” Mustadrak Al-Sahihain of Al-Hakim Al-Nisabori, 3/132; Musnad Ahmad, 1/331; Yanabi^ Al-Mawda, 92.
  160. The Holy Prophet in one of his Khutbas said, “God has so much exalted my brother Ali that his numerous virtues could not be counted easily: whosoever from amongst you narrated one of his excellences, God will forgive his past and future sins; and whosoever will record one of his excellences, the angels will bless him as long as his writing remains; whosoever will read about his virtues with eyes, the sins of the eye will be forgiven to him.

The beggar raised his hands towards heavens and said, Allah! Be a witness that I came to the Prophet’s Mosque and no one gave me anything. Ali (a.s.) was bowing, in ruku at that time. He pointed his little finger, on which was a ring, towards him who came forward and took away the ring. This incident occurred in the Holy Prophet’s (s.a.w.) presence who raised his face towards heavens and prayed : O Lord! My brother Musa had begged to You to open his chest to make his work easy for him, to loosen the knot of his tongue so that people might understand him and to appoint from among his relations his brother, as his vizier, and to strengthen his back with Harun and to make Harun his partner in his work. O Allah! You said to Musa, We will strengthen your arms with your brother. No one will now have an access to either of you! O Allah! I am Mohammed and You have given me distinction. Open my chest for me, make my work easy for me and from my family appoint my brother Ali as my vizier Strengthen my back with him.

I will permit him to come closer to Me. I will make Karamat obligatory for him and complete My favors upon him. I will regard him amongst My most special and pious servants. If he calls out to Me, I will answer him. If he asks Me, I will accept his prayers. If he requests me, I will grant his desires. If he is silent then I, My self, will shower mercy upon him. If he is depressed, then I will have compassion for him. If he runs away (if he is sinful), I will call him towards Me. If he returns to me, I will accept his repentance. If he Knocks at My door, I will open it for him." Ref:- Kamaluddin; chapter 24; Tradition no. 3; page no 278; Urdu

  193. "...they fulfil vows and fear .a day the evil of which shall be spreading far and wide. And they give food out of love for Him to the poor and the orphan and the captive: We only feed you for Allah's sake; we desire from you neither reward nor thanks: Surely we fear from our Lord a stern, distressful day. Therefore Allah will guard them from the evil of that day and cause them to meet with ease and happiness;... Holy Qur'an (76:7-11) These verses of the Holy Qur'an speak of the Ahlul-Bait, eulogizing their selflessness and piety. The historical occasion to which these blessed verses refer was, when Ali, Fatima and their two sons Hasan and Husain fasted for three consecutive days, and each day at the time of breaking the fast some needy person as verse number eight indicates - appeared and the Ahlul-Bait gladly fed him, and themselves passed the nights without food. Allah was so pleased by the generosity of the Prophet's Household that He converted their actions into verses of the Glorious Qur'an to serve as guidance for the Muslims. These verses not only portray the A hi ni-Bait' s total submission to Allah's Will but also reveal them as pure and spotless personalities, promised esteem and admiration among the dwellers of Paradise. They are shown as immaculate models of emulation so that whoever among the Muslim communities follows their glowing path will achieve salvation and will be assembled in their illustrious company on the Resurrection Day.
  194. Zamakhshari, in his Kashshaf' commenting on this verse, narrates from Abdulla Ibn Abbas - that once Hasan and Husain fell sick and the Prophet together with some of his companions visited his sick grandsons. He suggested that Ali should make a vow to Allah for his sons' health. Heeding the Prophet's suggestion Ali, Fatima along with their maid, Fidha, took a vow that if the boys recovered, they would fast for three consecutive days. Eventually Hasan and Husain recovered and to fulfill the vow they also fasted alongwith their parents and maid. Since there was nothing in the house to eat, Ali borrowed from Sham'un, a Khaibarian Jew, and three measures of barley. Fatima grounded one measure into flour and baked it into five loaves (of bread) equal to their number, and placed before them for breaking the fast. Just then a beggar stopped at their door and said: ai-Saiaam Alaikum (peace be upon you), 0 Ahlul-Bait of Muhammad (s.a.w.), (I am) one of the poorest of Muslims (so), feed me, may Allah feed you of the food of Paradise ! So they gladly gave him all the food and slept that night, tasting nothing but water.
  195. They fasted again the next day and at sunset as they placed the bread before them to break the fast, an orphan knocked on the door asking for food and they cheerfully fed him, themselves going without food for yet another day. On the third day of the fast, as the breaking time approached, and the food was spread, a prisoner (of war) suddenly appeared at their door and the same scenario was repeated, with the Prophet's Ahlul-Bait passing the third successive night without tasting a morsel of food. Zamakhshari continues that when dawn broke Ali holding the hands of Hasan and Husain came to the Prophet's house. The Prophet seeing their pale countenances and noting that they were trembling from hunger, expressed dismay and at once accompanied them to their house'. On entering the house he was shocked to see the sight of his daughter Fatima, sitting hollow-eyed on her prayer mat, her back stuck to her stomach. It was then that the angel Gabriel came down with this Sara, saying:
  196. "0 Muhammad, Allah congratulates you for (the sacrifice of) your household. Then he recited the (sura). "
  197. Another famous scholar Sheikh Fadhl ibn Hasan Tabarsi, in his Ma] ma' al-Bayan' after citing the same narration, adds: All ibn Ibrahim' narrates from his father who quotes Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq on the authority of Abdulla ibn Maimun that Fatima had (some) barley from which porridge was made and placed before them (for breaking the fast). Just then a beggar came and said, I am a poor man, may Allah have mercy upon you. Ali (a.s.) got up and gave him one third of the food. Then came an orphan and said, Tam an orphan, may Allah have mercy upon you. Ali (a.s.) got up and gave him another third (of the food). Then came a prisoner (of war) and said, may Allah have mercy upon you. Ali gave him the remaining one-third, without, they, the Ahlul-Bait tasting anything and going without meals. Thereby Allah the Exalted revealed the said verses. It is clear that this surah was revealed in Madina, and as a scholar of the stature Abu Hamza Thamali testifies, the whole sura was revealed in favour of Ali and Fatima.
  198. The Almighty says: .... .you are only a warner, and (there is) a guide for every people. Holy Qur'an (13:7) It is stated that when this verse was revealed, the Messenger of Allah placing his hand on his chest said: "I am the warner, and for every people there is a guide. Then pointing towards Imam All (a.s.), he said: You are the guide, All, by you the believers will be guided after me .
  199. The Almighty says: "Is he who is a believer like him who is a transgressor? They are not equal . Holy Qur'an (32:18) All authoritative books mention that the verse refers to Imam Ali (a.s.), a believer and describes Walid ibn Uqba.as a transgressor.

  201. Abu Said al Khudri reports: "We sat waiting for the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) when he came out to meet us. The strap of his sandal was broken and he tossed it to Ali. Then he (s.a.w) said: "A man amongst you will fight the people over the tawil (interpretation) of the Quran in the same way as I have fought over its tanzil (revelation)." Thereupon Abu Bakr said, 'Is that I?' The Prophet (pbuh&hp) said: "No." Then Umar asked him, 'Is that I?' "No." said the Prophet (s.a.w). "It is the mender of the sandal    (i.e. Ali)."al Hakim in Mustadrak, iii, 122; Ahmad ibn Hanbal in his Musnad, iii, 33, 82; Abu Nuaym in Hilyat al Awliya', i, 67; Ibn al Athir in Usd al Ghabah, iii, 282, iv, 33; Ibn Hajar, al Isabah, i, 22, iv, 152; Ibn Abd al Barr, al lsti`ab, ii, 423; al Haythami, Majma al Zawa'id, v, 186; al Muttaqi, Kanz al Ummal, vi, 155, 390, 391.
  202. he Almighty says: "Is he, then (to be counted equal to them) who was clear proof from his Lord, and a witness from Him recites... Holy Qur'an (11:17).
  203. Suyuti in Dur al-Manthur', Fakhruddin Razi in al-Tafsir al-Kabir' and Muttaqi Hindi in Kanz al-Ummal', vol. 1, p. 251, have all narrated, that the words: "He who has a dear proof, means Prophet Muhammad (s.a. w.), while "the Witness from Him" means Imam Ali (a.s.)
  204. The Almighty says: "...Allah it is Who is his Guardian, and Gabriel and the Righteous among the believers..." Holy Qur'an (66:4) All leading scholars are unanimous that the Righteous among the believers is none other than Ali ibn Abi Talib.
  205. The Almighty says: ".. .and that the Retaining ears might retain it . Holy Our'an (69:12) After reciting this verse the Prophet turned towards Imam Ali (a.s.) and said: I asked Allah to make it your ear . Ali (a.s.) said: "I never forgot anything I heard from the Messenger of Allah.
  206. The Messenger of Allah told Ali: Allah ordered me to bring you nearer not to distance you, and to teach you so that you would retain it in, as it is Allah s promise to let you retain it in. Then this verse was revealed: '...and that the Retaining ears might retain it'. "Surely as for those who believe and do good deeds for them will Allah bring about love. Holy Qur'an (19:96)
  207. Once the Prophet told Ali: "0 Ali, say: 0 Allah, grant me your covenant, and place my love in the bosoms of the believers, then the said verse was revealed in Ali's favour . "(As for) those who believe and do good, surely they are the best of men. Holy Qur'an (98:7)
  208. On the revelation of this verse, the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) said: "0 Ali, these are you and your followers. 
  209. "Do you consider (the person who undertakes) giving of water to the pilgrims and the guarding of the Sacred Mosque like him who believes in Allah and the Last Day and strives in the way of Allah. They are not equal in the sight of Allah; and Allah does not guide the unjust people. ". Holy Qur'an (9:19)All leading Scholars of Islam such as Tabari, Fakhrudin Razi, Suyuti, Nisaburi, etc. have stated in their interpretations of this verse that once Abbas ibn Abdul Muttalib and Talha ibn Shaiba proudly boasted in front of Ali ibn Abi Talib about their respective duties; the supplying of water to pilgrims and holding the keys of the Holy Ka'ba.
  210. Imam Ali answered them that he has been praying towards the Ka'ba six months before anyone else (besides the Prophet) ever bowed in prayer and has never ceased struggling in the way of Allah. It was then that this verse was revealed to the Prophet as a proof of Ali's superiority over all other Muslims.
  211. The Prophet (s) said, “Ali (a) is my brother in this life and the Hereafter.” Al-Khasa’is of Al-Nisa’i, 5; Al-Tirmidhi; Yanabi^ Al-Mawda, 61; Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 37; Yanabi^ Al-Mawda, 57.
  212. The Prophet (s) said, “Ali (a) is the best of humanity, and the one who denies it has blasphemed.” Ibn Al-Maghazeli, 129; Yanabi^ Al-Mawda, 233; Tarikh Baghdad of Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdadi, 5/37; Al-Khawarizmi, 235.
  213. This Ali Ibn Abi Talib A.S. is my brother, and my successor, and bear in mind that his appointment as my successor is from Allah and Allah has revealed this fact to me."
  214. "O' people this Ali A.S. an the other infallibles in my progeny constitute the Siqlul-Asghar, the junior of the weighty two weighty things while the Holy Qur'an is the Siqlul-Akbar, the Senior one, and these two would not get separated from each other till they join me at the Cistern of Kausar (Hawzil Kausar) on the Day of Judgement (Yawmul Qiyyamah).
  215. Beware the I have discharged my duty; beware that I have conveyed what I was charged by Allah to convey, take note that I have clarified everything and note that whatever Allah revealed to me has been faithfully conveyed by me to you. Take note that no one except this my brother Ali A.S. would be the Ameerul Mo'mineen, the Commander of the Faithful, for after me it is not lawful for anyone except Imam Ali A.S. to wield authority over the Faithful."
  216. "O' people I have clearly explained all the matters before you. Now after me this Imam Ali A.S would be explaining to you these matters. After finishing my speech I would call you to pay allegiance (Bay'at) to him, and to acknowledge him.
  217. Beware that I have paid allegiance (Bay'at) to Allah while Imam Ali A.S. has paid allegiance to me.
  218. Now I am taking your allegiance for Imam Ali A.S. under the Command of Allah.
  219. Now you should also proclaim that in this matter you bow before the Command of Allah and would obey Him, and obey me, and obey Imam Ali A.S., Imam Hasan A.S. and Imam Husain A.S. and the other Imams A.S. in Husain A.S.'s line as mentioned by me."
  220. "O' people, now say what I have told you to say and from now onwards you should offer salutation to Imam Ali A.S. by the title Ameerul Mo'mineen. Now confirm that you have heard and accepted what I have told you, and also say: All praise is due to Allah who gave us guidance for if He had not given us guidance we would have remained without it"."
  221. The entire crowd then cried loudly and confirmed, "Yes, O' Prophet of Allah S.A.W.A.S., we have heard you fully and are ready and prepared to obey every Command of Allah and every Command of the Prophet of Allah with heart, tongue and limbs."
  222. The people then thronged to the Holy Prophet S.A.W.A.S. and Imam Ali A.S. from all sides. The first who held out their pledge to the Holy Prophet in the matter were Abu Bakr, Umer and Usman.Then they were followed by other Migrants (Muhajireen) and the Locals (Ansar) and the rest of the people of all classes, groups and grades, so much so that the Maghrib and Isha Salaat were offered together because of the function having extended till it was fairly dark.
  223. Umer the second Caliph is reported to have greeted Imam Ali A.S. on this occasion in the following words: "Greeting be to you O' 'Ali son of Abu Talib; you have become my Master and the master of every believer (faithful) man and woman".
  224. The Holy Prophet S.A.W.A.S. repeated the last sentence thrice. This is as recorded in the Saheeh Muslim of Muslim. However, Nisaee, Imam Ahmad bin Hambal, Tirmizee, Tibrani and Tabari have related some further sentences relating to the merits of Imam Ali A.S.. The most common sentence is the following, "Of whomsoever I am the Master Ali A.S. is his master; may Allah keep friendship with everyone who keeps friendship with Ali A.S. and bear enmity with everyone who bears enmity with Ali A.S."."" Seeratun Nabi, p.165-6
  225. And thus the analogy with the Hujjatullahs becomes manifestly clear, for the Holy Prophet (saws) departed this earthly existence in the manner of the Sun setting, yet as Allah decrees mankind will not be left aimless and in the dark, guidance to the sirat al mustaqim continued in the form of the lineage of Twelve Imams, who function as the enduring Mercy of the Holy Prophet to mankind, reflecting his light as the Moon reflects the light of the Sun when it sets. And when one contemplates that in this lineage each Imam was succeeded by another, one discerns the obvious in the physical world around us, that which we knew all our lives as muslims, but did not ponder in more depth - the Moon’s trajectory forms 12 lunar months, one signifying each Imam and Khalifatullah, each Sign of Allah. And on the Moon one will find the the name of the First, the direct link to the Holy Prophet and the reliever of burdens, Ali (as), having his name carved on its surface, while the guidance of the Twelfth is vouchsafed for by the fact that the Moon continues to illuminate the Earth as Imam Mahdi (as) shines his light on the Earth.
    And when the Moon is hidden by a cloud, to quote a popular analogy, it still reflects the light of the Sun it trapped and guides mankind, as does the Twelfth Imam (as) in his concealment. When on the 14th of the lunar month the full moon is seen and the Moon is most brilliant, one realises that it is the 14 infallibles, Mohammad (saws), Fatima (sa) and the 12 Imams, in whose honour the full moon of the 14th night was created by Allah.
  226. Kokab Durri Page 285 - Tradition of the Holy Prophet [pbuh] " Who ever refuses to accept the right ( Haq ) of Moula Ali [as] is surely one of the three : 1) Munafiq , 2) Born as a result of Zina by his/her Parents , 3) His/Her mother concieved when she was having her periods

Indeed, in these is your Sunnah and the Sunnah of the Nabiyyin before you. They are the treasurers of My Knowledge after you.'

Refrain from such thoughts. You are not the owner of Ka'bah. The owner of Ka'bah is a youth from Quraysh who will donate the wealth of Ka'bah in the way of Allah at the end of Zaman (Age).”
  236. Tusi has reported in his "Al-Ghaybah" that Rasul'ullah (صل الله عليه واله وسلام) said to `Ali: "O `Ali there would be twelve A'immah (عليهم سلام) after me, and after them, there will be twelve Mahdiyyin. You are O `Ali the first of the twelve A'immah (عليهم سلام)... Then there will come after him, twelve Mahdiyyin."

    al-Mustadrak, by al-Hakim, v3, p122, who said this tradition is genuine based on the criteria of al-Bukhari and Muslim. al-Dhahabi, also records it in his Talkhis al-Mustadrak and admitted that it is genuine according to the standard of the two Shaikhs.

Then Ali (AS) came and the Prophet ate with him. Hakim in Mustadrak, iii, 130, 131; Abu Nuaym in Hilyah, vi, 339; al Khatib in Tarikh Baghdad, ii, 171; Muhibb al Tabari in al Riyad al Nadirah, ii, 160, 161, and Dhakha'ir al?-uqba, 61; Haythami in Majma al Zawa'id, ix, 125, 126; al Muttaqi in Kanz al Ummal, iv, 406; Ibn al Athir in Usd al Ghabah, iv, 30.
  262. The Person who loves with Hazrat Ali Ibn e Abi Talib a.s in his life or after his shahdat . when ever sun rises or drown so Allah Talah writes for him safety & Iyyman .

Beware! That man is not steadfast in faith who does not love ‘Ali and does not shun his enemies.
  267. Thus, to understand the lofty status of Imam ‘Ali [a] is ibadat in itself, for such an understanding strengthens one's love for the Ahlul-bayt [a] and one's hate for their enemies; resulting in increased piety and devotion to the Almighty [a].
  268. O Ali a.s ! do not get furious & when you (happen to) be enraged then sit down & meditate about the power of Allah over His slaves & His fore forbearance about them .
  269. O Ali a.s ! all the eyes will weep on the resurrection day except 3 eyes , 1) The eye which remained waking in the night till morning on the way of Allah & the eye which refrained from seeing the things prohibited by Allah , the eye which shed tear from the fear of Allah .

The Prophet called Ali (AS) his vizier and Khalifa (successor).
  280. He was just in all his dealings with all the people.

The Holy Prophet (s.a.w) said: "Verily, Ali and I are inseparable, and he is the master (wali) of every believer after me."Al Tirmidhi, in his Sahih, ii, 297, Ahmad ibn Hanbal in his Musnad, iv, 437, v, 356; Abu Dawud al Tayalisi in his Musnad, iii, 111, xi, 360; al Haythami, Majma al Zawaid, ix, 109, 127, 128, 199; al Khatib al Baghdadi, Tarikh Baghdad, iv, 339; al Muhibb al Tabari, al Riyad al Nadirah, ii, 203, 171; al Muttaqi al Hindi, Kanz al Ummal, vi, 154, 155, 396, 401; Ibn al Athir in Usd al Ghabah, v, 94; Abu Nuaym in Hilyat al Awliya, vi, 294; al Nasa'i, Khasais, 19, 23; as well as Ibn Abi Shaybah, al Tabari, al Tabarani, al ?Daylami, Ibn Mardawayh, Ibn al Jawzi, al Rafii, and Ibn Hajar.
  290. He treated all the people equally without discrimination.
  291. He would then distribute them among all the needy and the poor .
  292. Al-Hakim recorded v3, p112 that Anas Ibn Malik narrated that the Holy Prophet said to Ali: " You shall inform my nation about the truth and what they dispute after me":
  293. Salman al-Farsi said that the Messenger of God said: "The first one of
    you to drink from the Basin on the Day of Judgment is your first
    Muslim, Ali, the son of Abu Talib." Al-Mustadrak, by al-Hakim, v3, p112
  294. Ali Ibn Abi Talib was the first male to believe in the Messenger of God and that he prayed with him while he was only ten years old. Biography of the Prophet, by Ibn Hisham, v1,p245
  295. Hazrat Muhammad s.a.w says to Hazrat Imam Ali a.s "You have been given three things which have been given to no one else, not even me, (they are):
  296. You have been given a father-in-law like me and my father-in-law was not like me.
  297. You have been given an honest (Siddiqah) wife like my daughter, and I have not been given the like of her as a wife.
  298. And, you have been given Hassan and Hussain from your loin and I was not given two sons like them.   
  299. "I went to ask Fatima (A.S.) about Ali; she told me to go to the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) and ask him, so I went and sat down to wait for him;
  300. I then saw the Prophet coming in the company of Ali, Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain. He held their hands until they entered the room. He then sat Al-Hassan on his right leg and Al-Hussain on his left leg and ordered Ali and Fatima to sit near him. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) covered them with his cloak (or garment) and read: And Allah only wishes... than he (P.B.U.H.)) supplicated to Allah and said: "O Allah, truly these are my Ahlul-Bayt (Family)."
  301. But you are from me, and 1 am from you."
  302. The dearest person to Allah's Messenger;
  303. The holder of the great guardianship;
  304. The possessor of absolute Imamate;
  305. The Prophet's brother, successor and heir;
  306. The possessor of excellent talents;
  307. His long-standing service to Islam was also apparent to everyone.
  308. Likewise, Ali (a.s) respected Fatima, not only because she was his wife, but also because she was:
  309. The most beloved to Allah's Messenger;
  310. The mistress of all women;
  311. And her sanctity was part of the Prophet's.
  312. Indeed, Fatima enjoyed noble traits which had any woman held even one of them, she would be worthy of respect and exaltation.
  313. Prince of The Faithful (A.S.) acted in such an atrocious manner with his noble wife, while the Prophet says to him "Your conduct and looks are similar to mine, and you are from the same tree from which I came."
  314. Prophet declared that Ali was the best man of his nation, for he was the most patient and best mannered one of them all, and says:
  315. "Ali is the best of my nation, most knowledgeable and most patient from among them"
  316. Would Ali behave in such a manner when he heard the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) say to Fatima?  "I gave you in marriage to the first one to adhere to Islam from my nation, he is also the most knowledgeable and most patient among them?" &
  317. "I gave you in marriage to the first Muslim and best mannered man."
  318. Would the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) say all of this about Ali, while he behaved cruelly with Fatima?
    Surely the croaks fabricate many a falsehood;
  319. For Ali was exactly the honest and truthful one Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) said about.
  320. "Surely Allah is angered when you are angered, and is pleased at your pleasure."
  321. Had this been true!! Then why did he (P.B.U.H.) take Ali's hand and raise it publicly and announce:  "He was the first to believe in me, and he will be the first to shake my hand on the Day of Rising!?"
  322. He also informed his companions that: "The first among you to appear at my domain (reservoir),
  323. Is he who was the first among you to follow Islam Ali Ibn Abu Talib."
  324. "Ali to me is like my head to my body."
  325. "Ali to me is like I am to my Lord."
  326. "Ali is the most beloved to me, and the most beloved to Allah."
  327. He (P.B.U.H.) also said to Ali: "I am from you, and you are from me; or you are from me and I am from you."
  328. 'Ali is from me and I am from him; he is the guardian (wali) of every believer after me."
  329. -In the narration regarding sending Ali (A.S.) to read Surah At-tawbah (Surah No. 9) to the pilgrims on which it has been unanimously agreed, he said:
  330. "No one takes it (to the pilgrims) except a man being from me and I from him."
  331. "Your flesh is my flesh, your blood is my blood, and righteousness is on your side."
  332. "There is not a prophet who has not had a peer, and Ali is my peer."
  333. Also, in a narration that Al-Hakim deemed authentic, Tabarani related to Umme Salama the following:
    "Whenever the Prophet of Allah was angered, no one dared to speak to him save Ali."
  334. Also Aisha said:  "(I declare) by Allah that I have not seen anyone more beloved to Allah 's Messenger than Ali, or a woman on earth more beloved to him than his wife (Ali's wife, Fatima)."
  335. Buraida and Ubae also said:  "The most beloved to the Messenger of Allah from among women is Fatima, and from among men is Ali.,,
  336. And Juma Ibn Umair said:  "I entered Ali's house with my Aunt, when I inquired as to who was the most beloved of all people to Allah's Messenger?! She said: Fatima. Then she was asked: And from among men? She said: her husband, ever since I met him he has been fasting and praying."
  337. Furthermore, how could it be true that Allah's Messenger preferred others over Ali and paid more attention to them, while Ali was the first man chosen by Allah to follow his Messenger from among the dwellers of Earth,
  338. As he (P.B.U.H.) told Fatima in the following narration:  "Surely Allah has examined the dwellers of Earth and has chosen your Father to be a prophet, He then examined (them) and chose your husband, then He revealed to me that I give (you to him in) marriage and appointed him as my successor."
  339. He (P.B.U.H.) also said to Fatima:  "Surely Allah chose two men from the dwellers of Earth, one being your Father and the other your husband."
  340. Al-Majlisi, quoting Fural Ibn Ibrahim's interpretation of The Holy Quran in his book Al-Bihar, said: 'Abu Saeed al-Khudari said: One morning Ali Ibn Abu Talib woke up very hungry and said:
  341. 'Fatima, do you have anything to feed us?' She answered: `No,
  342. By Him who honored father with Prophet hood, and honored you with successors ship, we have nothing edible this morning, and we haven't had any food for two days save that which I have preferred to give you and our two children, Hassan and Hussain.'
  343. Ali (A.S.) said: 'Fatima! Why didn't you tell me, so I could bring some food for you?'
  344. Fatima answered: 'Abu Al-Hassan, I surely become ashamed before my God to ask you to do something you cannot do.'
  345. At this, Ali Ibn Abu Talib left Fatima, with full trust that Allah would help him. He borrowed a dinar, and while he was holding the dinar and trying to buy some food for his family, he came upon Miqdad Ibn Al Aswad.
  346. The sun had burnt Al-Miqdad's face and feet on that exceptionally hot day. When Ali (A.S.) saw him, he exclaimed surprisingly: `Miqdad, what brings you out of your home at this hour?' Miqdad answered: 'Abu Al-Hassan, ask me not about what I have left behind in the house.'
  347. Ali (A.S.) said: `My brother, I cannot leave you without knowing your problem.' Miqdad then said: 'Abu Al-Hassan, for Allah's sake and your sake leave me alone, and do not ask about my condition!!' 
  348. Imam Ali said: `My brother, you should not hide your condition from me.' Miqdad replied: 'Abu Al-Hassan, now that you insist, by Him who honored Muhammad with Prophethood and honored you with successorship, nothing forced me out of my house save poverty. I left my children starving; when I heard their cries, there remained no place for me on earth-I have come out of my house in depression; this is my story.'
  349. Imam Ali (A.S.) cried when he heard the story; he cried until his beard was wet from tears and said: `By Allah, that which forced you out of your house and also forced me out of my house; I borrowed a dinar, but I prefer you to have it.'
  350.  When Imam Ali (A.S.) had given the dinar to Miqdad, he went to the Mosque and performed his Zhuhar (noon), Asr (afternoon) and Maghrib (evening) prayers.
  351. When the Messenger of Allah had completed his prayers, he signaled Ali, who was in the first line, to follow him. Ali (A.S.) obediently followed him out of the Mosque and after the Prophet greeted him said:
  352. 'Abu Al-Hassan, do you have some food for dinner so that I can accompany you?'
  353. Imam Ali was too shy to answer the Messenger; but the Prophet of Allah (P.B.U.H.) had detailed knowledge about the dinar and what had happened to it; for Allah, the Exalted, had revealed to His Prophet to have dinner at Ali's house that night.
  354. When Ali did not answer, the Prophet said: 'Abu Al-Hassan, why don't you say no, so I may leave you; or yes, so I may accompany you?'
  355. Imam Ali (A.S.) said: 'Accompany me!!'
  356. The Prophet then took Ali's hand and proceeded toward Fatima's house.
  357. When they arrived, Fatima was just finishing her prayers and there was a pan oil fire behind her.
  358. When she heard the Prophet coming, who was the dearest person to her, she greeted him and he wiped his hand on her head and said:
  359. `How is your evening, my daughter? She answered: `Fine!'
  360. He then said: `Give us some dinner, may Allah bless you, and surely He has.'
  361. Fatima (A.S.) placed the pan in front of the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) and Ali Ibn Abu Talib...
  362. At that moment, the Messenger of Allah put his hand on Ali's shoulder and said: 'Ali, this is a substitute for your dinar. This is a reward from Allah for the dinar; surely Allah grants whoever He wills without limit.'
  363. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) cried and said: "Praise be to Allah, Who insisted on rewarding you in this world, too, and made you Ali-like Zakariya and Fatima like Maryam Bint Imran, for whenever Zakariya entered the Mehrab, he found Maryam with her subsistence."
  364. You know what my relations with the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) were. From the very beginning of my life, he loved me and I loved him.
  365. Allah then commanded the two angels to go down and protect Ali bin Talib from the enemies. Thus the two angels came and Jibreel stood by Ali's headrest and Meekaa'eel by his feet. And they both were saying: "Bravo, bravo, O son of Abu Talib, Allah is taking pride in your act of self-sacrifice and showing your glory over the angels."
  366. He took me in his lap
  367. when I was a baby and thence I was always with him.
  368. He often kept me embraced to his heart.
  369. He used to lay me next to him.
  370. We used to be so close to each other that I felt the warmth of his body and smelled the fragrance of his odor.
  371. When I was a baby, he fed me with his hands,
  372. Often chewing hard bits for me.
  373. He never found me lying nor weak and wavering.
  374. From the time of his (the Prophet (s.a.w.)) infancy, Allah had appointed the greatest of His angels to always be with him,
  375. And His Arch Angel was leading him towards exemplary qualities and high moral values,
  376. And I followed him (s.a.w.) step by step as a baby camel follows its mother.
  377. Daily he used to place before me a fresh standard of efficiency and used to order me . to follow it.
  378. Every year he used to stay in a grotto of the Hara' for some time,
  379. And nobody used to be with him but I.
  380. None could then see or hear him but I.
  381. During those days Islam was the religion of only the Prophet and his wife, Khadijah.
  382. I was the third of the trio.
  383. Nobody else in this world had accepted Islam.
  384. Even then I used to see the divine light of revelation and prophet hood and smell the heavenly fragrance of prophet hood."
  385. Imam Ali (a.s.), remembering those momentus days, during a decisive period of his life, recalls "...
  386. Every year he used to stay in a grotto of Hira' Mountain for some time, and nobody would be with him but I..."
  387. Thus, he talked to Imam Ali (a.s.) and Khadijah about his Message and later on to Zaid bin Harithah. No one except these, and some others of his close household, knew about it.
  388. Ibn Abi Shaybah and Ibn Asakir recorded on the authority of Salim Ibn
    Abi Jaad that he said: I asked of Muhammad Ibn Hanifah, "was Abu Bakr
    the first of the people to adopt Islam?" He replied: "No".
    And Ibn Asakir on a reliable ascription from Muhammad Ibn Sa'd Ibn Abi
    Waqqas, that he said to his father Sa'd: "was Abu Bakr the first of you
    in embracing the faith?" He said: "No, for there were more than five
    people in faith before him"
    Ibn Kathir says: "it is clear that Muhammad's family believed before
    every other - his wife Khadija, his freedman Zaid and the Wife of Zaid
    Umm Ayman and Ali and Warakah."

  392. The Prophet (PBUH&HF) said: "There is amongst you a person who will fight for the interpretation of the Quran just as I fought for its revelation." The people around him raised their heads and cast inquisitive glances at the Prophet (PBUH&HF) and at one another. Abu Bakr and Umar were there. Abu Bakr inquired if he was that person and the Prophet (PBUH&HF) replied in the negative. Then Umar inquired if he was that person and the Prophet (PBUH&HF), replied "No. He is the one who is repairing my shoes (i.e., Ali)." Abu Said Khudri said: Then we went to Ali and conveyed the good news to him. He did not even raise his head and remained as busy as he was, as if he had already heard it from the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF)." al-Mustadrak, by al-Hakim, v3, p122, who said this tradition is genuine based on the criteria of al-Bukhari and Muslim. al-Dhahabi, also records it in his Talkhis al-Mustadrak and admitted that it is genuine according to the standard of the two Shaikhs.

  403. "Tomorrow I will give the standard to a man, by whose hand God shall conquer (Khaybar). He loves God and His Messenger, and God and His Messenger love him."The people passed the night wondering as to who will receive it and everyone was hopeful of getting it. (The next day) the Prophet (s.a.w) declared: "Where is Ali?" He was told: 'He is suffering with an eye pain.' (When Ali came) the Prophet applied his saliva to his eyes and prayed for him. Ali recovered as if he had no pain before. Then the Prophet (s.a.w) gave it (the standard) to him... Muslim in his Sahih, "Kitab al-jihad wa al Siyar" and "Kitab fada'il al Sahabah"; al Tirmidhi in his Sahih, i, 218; Ibn Majah in Sunan (Matba`at al Faruqi, Delhi) "bab fada'il ashab Rasul Allah (S)"; al Hakim in Mustadrak, iii, 38, 437; Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal in Musnad, i, 99, 133, 185, 320, iv, 51, v, 353; Abu Nu`aym in Hilyat al 'awliya', i, 26, 62; al Nasa'i in Khasa'is, 4, 5, 7, 8, 32; al Muttaqi in Kanz al Ummal, v, 283, 285, vi, 394, 395, 405; al Haythami in Majma al Zawa'id, vi, 150, 151, ix, 119, 123, 124; Ibn Hajar, Tahdhib al Tahdhib, vii, 337, 339; al Muhibb al Tabari, al Riyad al Nadirah, ii, 185, 187, 203; al Tabari, Tarikh, ii, 300; Ibn Sa`d, al Tabaqat, ii, part one, 80; Ibn Abd al Barr, al Istiab (Hyderabad, 1336), ii, 450; al Bayhaqi in Sunan, vi, 362.

  408. Ayat 1.  “Verily, your master is only Allah and His Apostle and those who believe, those who establish prayers and pay the zakaat while bowed (in worship)”The Muslim scholars, Sunni and Shia alike, agree that this verse was revealed in honor of Imam Ali (a.s.). It clearly shows that there are only three masters of the believers. Firstly, Allah, secondly, His Prophet (s.a.w.) and thirdly Ali (a.s.) (with the eleven succeeding Imams).
  409. (Say) O Muhammad, to your nation: (no reward do I ask of you for this) the message of Islam (except the love of those near of kin) to me. (i.e.) Ahlul-Bayt (A.S.). When this verse was revealed, someone said: "Messenger of Allah, who are the kin whose love is obligatory for us?" The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) replied: "Ali, Fatima, and her two children."
  410. Allah the Exalted has said: "Verily the Good shall drink of a Cup (of wine) mixed with Kafur. A fountain where the Devotees of God do drink, making it flow in unstinted abundance. They perform (their) vows, and they fear a Day whose evil lies far and wide. And they feed, for the love of God, the indigent, the orphan and the captive. Saying, `We feed you for the sake of God alone; no reward do we desire from you, nor thanks.' `We only fear a Day of distressful Wrath from the side of our Lord.' But God will deliver them from the evil of that day, and will shed over them a light of Beauty and a (blissful) Joy. And because they were patient and constant, He will reward them with a Garden and (garment of) silk. Reclining in the (Garden) on raised thrones, they will see there neither the sun's (excessive heat) nor (the moon's) excessive cold. And the shades of the (Garden) will come low over them, and the bunches (of fruit), there, will hang low in humility. And amongst them will be passed round vessels of silver and goblets of crystal; Crystal clear, made of silver. They will determine the measure thereof (According to their wishes). And they will be given to drink there of a Cup (of wine) mixed with Zanjabil. A fountain there, called Salsabil. And around about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness): if thou seest them, thou wouldst think them scattered Pearls. And when thou lookest, It is there thou wilt see a Bliss and a Realm Magnificent. Upon them will be green garments of fine silk and heavy brocade, and they will be adorned with Bracelets of silver; and their Lord will give to them to drink of a Wine pure and Holy. Verily this is a Reward for you, and your Endeavor is accepted and recognized." (76: 5-22)
    These verses were revealed after Ali, Fatima, Hassan, and Hussain (A.S.) gave charity to needy people; this story is stated in the book Al-Kashaf by Zamakhshari; it goes as follows:
  411. "Ibn Abbas said: `Once Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain (A.S.) were ill, the Messenger of Allah and a group went to visit them. The visitors suggested to Imam Ali (A.S.) to make a vow to Allah: if He were to relieve them, he would perform some good action. Therefore, Imam Ali together with Fatima and their servant Fidhdha vowed to Allah that they would fast for three days if He would relieve Hassan and Hussain.'
  412. 'When Allah had relieved them, Imam Ali (A.S.) borrowed three (3) aswu (a cubic measure) of barley from a Jew known as Shimon. Fatima ground one (1) sa'a (singular of aswu) of the barley and baked five loaves of bread for her family's meal at sunset. As sunset approached, a needy man knocked on the door and said: Assalamu Alaikum, Family of Muhammad. I am a needy man from among the Muslims, feed me, may Allah feed you from the food of Paradise.' The holy family preferred the needy man over themselves and spent the night with nothing in their stomachs save water.'
  413. 'They fasted the second day, and again at sunset, when they were waiting for their food, an orphan asked them for help and they again preferred him over themselves. The third evening a captive (prisoner of war) asked them for help and they repeated their preference for the needy above themselves.'
  414. 'The following morning, Imam Ali (A.S.) took Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain to the Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) who said the following when he saw them shaking like little chicks from hunger:
  415. "The Prophet said: It displeases us to see you in this condition.' Then he went with them, for he wanted to see Fatima. When they arrived, Fatima (A.S.) was in the Mehrab (prayer place), and her condition was such that it further displeased the Prophet (P.B.U.H.). At this time, Gabriel descended and said: `
  416. Take this chapter Muhammad, - Allah surely congratulates you for having this family. " It is worthy to state that the Good ones mentioned here are Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Hussain; who deserve Paradise because of their act of feeding the needy, the orphan, and the captive.
  417. Another point to keep in mind here is that despite the detailed description of Paradise given in the verses, Allah, the Exalted, does not mention the huris. This understood to be in honor and exaltation of Fatima (A.S.) the wife of Imam Ali, and the mother of Hassan and Hussain.
  418. Ali a.s is Imam of Sala haeen (Good peoples) & killer of Bad peoples .
  419. The famous Sunni Historian, al-Tabari also wrote: The first three to offer prayers were Muhammad (PBUH&HF) , Khadija and Ali (AS). History al-Tabari, v2, p65

  421. Hadith al-Thaqalayn, for `Ammar himself was one of the staunch followers (shi`ah) of `Ali (A) and had been instructed by the Prophet (S) to obey and follow `Ali (A):
  422. [The Prophet (S) said to `Ammar:] O `Ammar, `Ali will not divert you from guidance. O `Ammar, obedience to `Ali is obedience to me, and obedience to me is obedience to God, Almighty and Glorious.
  423. It is Narrated by Abu Bakr , Umar ibn e Katab , Usman bin Afan , that whose is Hazrat Ali a.s enemy is really the enemy of Hazrat Muhammad s.a.w .
  424. When the infidels of Mecca decided to kill the Prophet and surrounded his house, the Holy Prophet decided to emigrate to Medina. He said to Ali, "Will you sleep in my bed at night so that they will think that I am asleep and I will be secure from being pursued by them?" Ali accepted this dangerous assignment with open arms.
  425. Whoever contests `Ali in regard to the khilafah is an unbeliever.
  426. This is the famous tradition, also mentioned in the narration given by al­Hakim in Mustadrak `ala al­Sahihayn (vol. iii, pp. 109­110), quoted in the section "On Some Sahih Versions of the Hadith" in the present article, in which the Prophet (S) while returning from his last pilgrimage stopped the entire caravan at Ghadir Khumm and made the announcement:
    Of whomever I am his master, `Ali also is his master (mawla).
  427. The Prophet said, "God has informed me that He loves four men and that I should love them also." They asked about their names. He mentioned Ali and then the names of Abu Dharr, Salman and Miqdad. (Sunan of Ibn Majah, Cairo, 1372, vol. I, p. 66.)

  432. Al­Tirmidhi in his Sahih reports that once when the Prophet (S) sat down to eat a fowl that had been prepared for his dinner, he prayed to God:"My God, bring the most beloved of Your creatures, that he may eat this fowl with me." Then `Ali (A) came and the Prophet ate with him.
  433. Al­Hakim records this tradition of the Prophet (S) in his Mustadrak, iii, 126, 127:
    I am the city of knowledge and `Ali is its gate; whoever intends to enter the city should come to its gate.
  434. It is Narrated by Abu Bakr , Umar ibn e Katab , Usman bin Afan , that Hazrat Ali a.s & He is like as Hazrat Muhammad s.a.w same as Hazrat  Musa a.s to Hazrat Haroon a.s .
  435. Muhammad ibn Ya'qub al-Kulayni, from 'Ali ibn Ibrahim, from his father, from Hammed, from Rib`i, from Zurarah, from Abu Ja'far, may peace be upon him. [Zurarah] says: "I heard him say, `Verily, God, the Almighty and the Glorious, cannot be described, and how could He be described when He declares in His Book. "And they measure not God with His true measure."'[1]
  436. Hence He cannot be described by any measure, and if described He would transcend it. And, verily, the Prophet, may God bless him and his Household, cannot be described, and how could be described a servant whom God, the Almighty and the Glorious, has concealed with seven veils and made obedience to him in the earth like obedience to him in the heavens, declaring, "And whatsoever the Messenger giveth you, take it. And whatsoever be forbiddeth, abstain from it."[2]
  437. And [He has declared] "Whoever obeys him assuredly obeys Me, and whoever disobeys him disobeys Me. [3]
  438. Hence He has delegated authority to him. And we (Imams of the Ahl al-Bayt) cannot be described And how could a people be described whom God has kept free from impurity, which is doubt. And neither can the believer be described. And indeed, when the believer takes his brother with the hand on meeting him, God looks at them and sins are shed from their faces in the way leaves fall from a tree:" [4]
  439. [(In al-Kafi al-Kulayni reports) with his isnad from Abu Basir that he said, "I asked Abu 'Abd Allah, may peace be upon him, concerning the statement of God, the Blessed and the Exalted, 'And thus have We inspired in thee (O Muhammad) a Spirit of Our Command. Thou knewest not what the Scripture was, nor what the Faith' (42:52). He replied, '(The Spirit mentioned in the verse) is one of the creatures of God, the Blessed and the Exalted, greater than Gabriel and Michael, that was with the Messenger of God, may God bless him and his Household, and which used to inform and guide him, and after him it is with the Imams, may God bless them." [12]
  440. Tradition of the Prophet, may God bless him and his Household: Ali is immersed in the Essence of God, the Exalted." [13]
  441. In former days, this author, like a bat describing the world-illuminating sun, has described a modicum of the station of prophethood and wilayah in a separate treatise named Misbah al-hidayah. [14]
  442. In al-Kafi [al-Kulayni reports] with his isnad from Muhammad ibn Sinan that he said: "I was with Abu Ja'far, the Second, may peace be upon him, when I mentioned before him the disagreement amongst the Shi'ah. Thereat he said, 'O Muhammad, verily God, the Blessed and the Exalted, is ever unique in His Unity. Then He created Muhammad, 'Ali and Fatimah. They remained for a thousand eons, then He created all the things and made them witness their creation and decreed them to obey them, delegating their affairs (i.e. of the creatures) to them. Hence they permit whatever they will and forbid whatever they will and they will not anything except what God, the Exalted, wills.' Then he said, 'O Muhammad, whoever goes beyond this creed transgresses the bounds [of right doctrine] and whoever lags behind perishes, and whoever adheres to it attains [to the truth]. So hold on to it, O Muhammad!' " [25]
  443. The conviction of 'Ali ibn Abi Talib, may peace be upon him, had brought him to the station that he declared: "Even if I were to be given the whole world in order to unjustly deprive an ant of a grain, I would not do it. " [27]
  444. Al­Tirmidhi in his Sunan (v, 662, no. 3786) records the following tradition ....Jabir ibn `Abd Allah said:    "I saw the Messenger of Allah - upon whom be God's peace and benedictions - in the course of his hajj pilgrimage on the day of `Arafah. The Prophet (S) was seated on his camel, al­Qaswa', and was delivering a sermon. I heard him say: 'O people, I am leaving among you that which if you hold on to you shall never go astray: the Book of Allah and my kindred, my household."
  445. O Muslim's ! do Zikar of Ali a.s .
  446. Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) recounts, “My father asked Jabir b. Abdullah Ansari regarding the tablet of Hazrat Zahra (s.a.) which he had seen with her” Jabir narrates, ‘I take Allah as witness that on that occasion of the birth of Imam Husain (a.s.) I went to your mother’s (Hazrat Zahra (s.a.)) House so as to felicitate her on this joyous occasion. I saw a green tablet resembling emeralds in her hand. The writing on the tablet reminded me of the brilliance of the sun. Amazed, I said, ‘O Daughter of the Prophet! May my parents be sacrificed for you! What is the significance of the tablet (in your hand)? She said, ‘This tablet was presented by Allah to His Messenger (saw). It bears my father’s name, as well as the names of my tow sons and their successors. This tablet was then presented to me by my father, to commemorate the momentousness of this birth.’ Then Jabir continues, ‘I swear by Allah that    I saw the following inscribed on the tablet. In the Name of Allah, the most beneficent the most Merciful. This is a communiqué from the most Venerable and the most Wise to His light, His messenger, His proof, Muhammad. Jibraeel (A.S.) conveys this tablet form Allah’s side. I have not raised a Prophet and caused him to die, except that I have chosen from him a successor. I have given your successor precedence over all other successors. And after him, I have elevated you through your beloved grandsons, Hasan and Husain. I shall reward the people and chastise them based on their love for the progeny of hasan and Husain. The first among them is Ali, the doyen of worshippers and the adornment of all my friends. After him is his son, Muhammad, the semblance of his ancestor Muhammad (s.a.). He shall disseminate (My) Knowledge, and is indeed the mine of My wisdom. Those who deny (his son) Jafar Shall meet most unpleasant end. I shall elevate Jafar to a lofty station. I shall gratify him through his followers, his helpers and his friends. After him I selected (his son) Moosa. Then the one who denies even one of them, has indeed repudiated (all) my bounties. And one who disowns the eight one (Raza) has indeed denied all my (previous) successors.
  447. Surely Ali is My successor and helper. And I have made it binding upon myself to soothe him through his son Muhammad, who shall succeed him. He is the inheritor of My knowledge and the mine of wisdom. After him is (his son) Ali who is my friend and helper. I shall complete My leadership through him. (Soon) through him I shall manifest Hasan, who will call towards my path and be the treasurer of My knowledge. Then I shall complete this chain through his son Muhammad (atfs) the mercy for the universe. Indeed these are my true successors. I shall repel all discord and strife through them. I shall reform all errors through them. Through them, I shall grant reprieve to the imprisoned, their religion is incessantly sending salutations and mercy upon them, Verily they are beacons of guidance (for mankind). Ref: Faraadius Simtain, Chapter 2/137-139, Tradition 432
  448. “Ye people! Close your doors opening into the Mosque.” The people were struck with wonder to hear the voice, but they sat dumb without stirring to carry out the Command, till they heard again the injunction to close the doors on pain of Divine Wrath. Terrified at this warning, they all approa­ched the Prophet, who was in his apartment. Ali also came out of his apartment, which was adjacent to the Prophet’s rooms since the day of Fatima’s marriage with him. He stood by the Prophet when he ordered that all the doors opening into the Mosque, excepting that of Ali and his own, should be closed. People began to murmur. The Prophet was angry at their attitude and addressed them thus: “Verily, God ordered His apostle Moses to build a holy Mosque, and he allowed Moses, Aaron and the two sons of Aaron, viz. Shabbar and Shabbir, to live therein. I was likewise ordered to cons­truct a holy mosque wherein myself and my brother All and his two sons, Hasan and Husaln are allowed to live. Verily, I do only what I am ordered to do. I never under­take to act on my own wish. Certainly I have not ordered of my own accord to close your doors or to let All’s door open. it is God who granted All an abode in the Holy Mosque.” Consequently, the companions, whose houses skirted the quadrangle of the Mosque, closed their doors.
  449. Authentic Proofs are quoted below regarding the Ayah of the Holy Quran-Sura 3-verse 60 as given on page 73 Imam Fakhruddin Razi writes in his ‘Tafseer-e-Kabeer’ (Volume 2) : “When this verse was revealed to the Holy Prophet, the Christians of Najraan accepted the challenge of ‘Mubahala’ and the Holy Prophet took along with him Imam Hasan, Imam Husain, Janab-e-Fatima and Hazrat Ali to the field of ‘Mubahala’ “. Alama Zamakhshari writes in his ‘Tafseer-e-Kashshaf’ : “There can be no more authen­tic and stronger evidence for the holiness of Ashab-e-­Kisa, i.e., Hazrat Ali, Janab-e-Fatima, Imam Hasan and Imam Husain, than this Quranic verse. For in compliance with the order of God, the Holy Prophet summoned his Ahl-ul-Bait, took Imam Husain in his arms, grasped Imam Hasan’s hand in his own, asked Janab-e-Fatima to follow him, and Hazrat Ali to follow her. This proved that the Holy Ahl-ul-Bait were those to whom the Quranic verse was directed.”
  450. "Whomsoever I have authority over, Ali (A.S.) has also authority over him, O Allah! Befriend whoever befriend him and be hostile to whosoever is hostile to him".

  454. "You [Ali (A.S.)] are to me as Aaron unto Moses, only there is no prophet after me."
  455. Ali a.s is best from the Creation of human being the person who Ignore Him is a Kafir .
  456. Implicit faith in the duty of a man to earn the pleasure of the Almighty Allah and His Prophet Muhammad ( p.b.u.h ), at any cost, even at the cost of his own life The courage of surrendering himself willingly with the utmost peace of mind, to sleep under the swords, ready to fall upon him .The confidence and faith in God's protection . And on the night of Hijrah, Allah the glorious revealed to Jibrail and Mikail I have established brotherhood between you two and have ordained the life of one longer than the life of the other. Now, are you willing to make a present of the extra length of life to the other? But each preferred the longer life for himself. Then Allah revealed Why not follow the example of Ali ibn Abu Talib. I have established brotherhood between him and Muhammad (pbuh). He is now sleeping on the bed of Muhammad in order to save his life by sacrificing his own. Now descend both of  you to the earth and protect him from his enemies. Both the angels descended. Jibrail took up his position near Ali's head and Mikail near his feet. Jibrail was crying  out aloud Excellent. Excellent. O son of Abu Talib! There is none like you. Allah is making boast of you before the angels. And it was on this very occasion that the above verse was revealed.

It is narrated that he (i.e. the Prophet) - upon whom be peace - said in the last sermon that he delivered during his illness: "O people, I leave behind two precious things (thaqalayn) amongst you...: the Book of God - which is a rope between Him and you, whose one end is in His hand and whose other end is in your hands ­ so act according to its muhkamat and believe in its mutashabihat; consider as lawful that which it regards as lawful and consider as forbidden that which it regards as unlawful - and my `Itrah and my Ahl al­Bayt, who are the second thaql. So don't outstrip them (fa la tasbiquhum ), for then you shall perish."
  581. The Messenger of Allah (S) said during his last illness: "Soon I am going to pass away and I have extended to you my plea of excuse. Lo, verily I leave behind amongst you two precious things: the Book of Allah , the Almighty and the Glorious, and my kindred (`Itrah)." Then he took `Ali's hand and raised it, saying, "This `Ali is with the Qur'an and the Qur'an is with `Ali. The two will not separate until they return to me by the Pond. Then I will ask the two as to how they were treated after me."

     
Fazilat About Hazrat Imam Ali Ibn e Abi Talib a.s according to Hadith's of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad s.a.w .Open challenged & Proof to All the world .
Asalamoalaka ya Ameer ul Momineen Imam Ali Ibn Abitalib a.s.





  1. O peoples ! accpet the Ranks of Hazrat Ali Ibn e Abi Talib a.s .
  2. "Tomorrow I shall give this standard to a person who loves Allah and the Prophet and who is loved by Allah and the Prophet and Allah will accomplish conquest of this fort at his hands. He is a man who has never turned his back towards the enemy and does not flee the battlefield".
  3. And as quoted by Tabarsi and Halabi he used the words 'Karrar Ghayr-i Farrar'  which mean one who attacks the enemy and does not run away (i.e. he is quite the opposite of the aforesaid two commanders).
  4. The silence of the anxiously waiting persons was broken by the Prophet's words "Where is Ali?" He was informed that he was suffering from an ailment of the eyes and was resting in a corner. The Prophet said: "Bring him".
  5. Tabari says: "Ali was mounted on a camel and was made to alight before the tent of the Prophet". This sentence shows that the ailment of the eye was so severe that it had made the commander incapable of movement. The Prophet drew his own hand on his eyes and prayed for him. This action and this prayer had an effect like the breath of Prophet 'Isa, for thereafter the eyes of Ali, the great commander of Islam, had no complaint throughout his life.
  6. The famous exegist Suyuti in his renowned commentary Our al-Manthur' cites Tabarani's narration from Umm Salama that the Prophet once told his beloved daughter Fatima to call her husband Ali and their two sons Hasan and Husain. When they came, the Prophet covered them with a Fadak (a place near Madinah) cloak and puffing his hand on them, said: 0 Allah! these are the ahl of Muhammad (another version says aal i.e. family), so, shower your blessings and favours on aal Muhammad as you showered them on aal Abraham; You are the Praiseworthy, the Glorious.. Umm Salama said that she raised the cloak to join them, but the Prophet pulled it out of her hand and said: You are (also) on the right'.
  7. Holy Our'an (33:33) All exegists of the Holy Qur'an and narrators of the Prophet's traditions, unanimously agree that the word Ahlul-Bait, or the Household of the Prophet as used by Almighty Allah in the Qur'an, refers only to four persons: The Prophet's daughter Fatima (a.s.), her husband Ali (a.s.) and their two children Hasan (a.s.) and Husain (a.s.).
  8. Another narration from Umm Salama says that once the Prophet was in her house lying on a mattress, covered with a cloak from Khaibar when his beloved daughter Fatima (a.s.) entered with a dish called    aI-Khazira (a kind of food). The Prophet asked her to call her husband (Ali) and her two sons, Hasan and Husain. She called them and as they all sat together to eat, Allah revealed the following verse to the Prophet. "...Allah desires to keep away uncleanness from you, o' people of the House and make you pure as pure can be . Holy Qur'an (33:33)
  9. Upon this the Prophet covered them all with his cloak and lifting his hands towards the sky said: "0 Allah! this is my family and the nearest of my kin, keep away from them uncleanness and keep them pure as pure can be'. Umm Salama adds that thrice the Prophet repeated these words and when she poked her head under the cloak and asked him Am I with you? In a refraining gesture, he said twice: "You are (also) among the righteous.
  10. On many an occasion the Prophet explained the meaning of this verse to the Muslims and drew their attention to its significance. Abi Sa'id Khidri quotes the Prophet as saying: "This verse was revealed concerning five persons): Myself, All, Fatima, Hasan and Husain. "…Allah desires to keep away uncleanness from you, people of the House and make you pure as pure can be."  Holy Qur'an (33:33)
  11. It is Narrated by Hazrat Muhammad s.a.w , He say's  O Ali a.s , your shia are respectable ,
  12. If you & your shia's are not present that Allah Deen is not be Establish ,
  13. If you are not present in earth than the rain do not fall's from the sky.
  14. O Ali a.s , In Paradise there is Kazana for you . & you are The Leader / Sardar of Paradise .
  15. Your Shia's will be popular by the name of Husbillah .
  16. O Ali ! you & your shia's create Justifies & you people are respectable peoples of Allah . 
  17. O Ali a.s ! I am that the first person who (remove soil from the head) mean return's back .& you are with me & then all the creatures returned .
  18. O Ali a.s ! you & your shia's will be at the pound of Hoz e Kausar .
  19. The Person which you like you gave water & which you dislike you (remove them) do not gave them .
  20. On that day of Hardness you peoples are under the Shade of  A rash of Allah Tal ah  & on that day other peoples will be in grief & sorrow & horror .& but you peoples are not .
  21. Hazrat Rasool Allah s.a.w says to Hazrat Ali a.s , O Ali a.s , The Person who died & hate you like he died as Jews or Christian .
  22. It is Narrated By Sahahba Akram r.a that they heard from Holy Prophet s.a.w that Hazrat Rasool Allah s.a.w says , On the Day of Judgment & Allah gave ordered to Hazrat Gabriel a.s , he will sit at the gate of Paradise & do not enter any one , except which had present ,  the Barat Nama from Hazrat Ali Ibn e Abi Talib a.s .
  23. It has already been stressed that the ahl al-bayt share with the prophets of old and their descendants a high status and divine favour, but not the office of prophethood. They share, moreover, with the Prophet Muhammad the prerogative of intercession. This is expressed in hagiographical language, a language common to both Sunni and Shi'i tradition. One such common example may suffice to demonstrate the devotion in the piety of both traditions to the Prophet and the people of his household. The Qur'an tells us that Adam received certain words of God which earned him God's forgiveness and mercy: Adam received words from his Lord, and He turned towards him; for He is relenting, compassionate (2:37). Suyuti reports that Ibn 'Abbas, the famous traditionist and authority    on the Qur'an, asked the Prophet about the words which Adam received. The Prophet answered: 'He prayed saying, "O God, for the sake of Muhammad, 'Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husayn, do turn toward me", and He turned toward him.' See the commentary on 2:37 in al-Suyuti.
  24. The Messenger of God said: "The first one of you to drink from the Basin on the Day of Judgment is your first Muslim, Ali, the son of Abu Talib."
  25. In another highly dramatic version of this tradition, Adam is taught the words as the only means by which God would accept his repentance and forgive him. 'Ali, we are told, enquired of the Prophet concerning the verse under discussion. The Prophet told him that when Adam and his wife were expelled from Paradise, Adam wept bitterly over his sin for a hundred years. Finally, Gabriel came to him and spoke thus on God's behalf:  O Adam, did I not create you with my own hand? Did I
    not breathe into you of my spirit? Did I not command my angels to bow down before you? Did I not provide you with Eve my servant?' 'Yes', Adam answered. Gabriel asked: 'What then is the cause of this weeping?' Adam replied, 'Why should I not weep when I have been expelled from the proximity of the All-Merciful?' The angel then said: 'You must pray fervently with these words, and God will accept your repentance and forgive your sin. Say: "O God, I beseech you for the sake of Muhammad and the people of the household of Muhammad; nor is there any god but you. I have done evil, and have wronged my soul. Turn towards me for you are relenting, compassionate." Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, I, 234.
  26. It is narrated from Jabir Bin Abdullah Ansari that one day in the presence of Muhajirs (Meccan emigrants living in Medina) and Ansars ("helpers" of Medina who received the Muslim emigrants into their community), that the Prophet said to Ali, "O Ali! If a man offers complete prayers to Allah, and then doubts that you and your family are superior to all other beings, his abode shall be Hell."
  27. One day, we are told, Hasan and Husayn were lost, and their mother Fatima came to the Prophet greatly alarmed. The angel Gabriel, however, came down and told the Prophet that the two youths were asleep in an animal fold some distance away. God, the angel reassured the anxious family, had charged an angel to keep watch over them. The Prophet went to the spot and found the angel had spread his two wings: one under them and the other over them as cover. The Prophet stooped over the two children and began to kiss them until they awoke. He then carried them on his shoulders back to the city. A large crowd of Muslims followed the Prophet and his two grandsons to the mosque. The Prophet then addressed the assembled people and said: 'O Muslims, shall I inform you of those who have the best grandfather and grandmother of humankind?' 'Yes, O Apostle of God', they all replied. 'They are Hasan and Husayn', he said. 'Their grandfather is the Apostle of God, the seal of the Messengers, and their grandmother is Khadija, daughter of Khuwaylid, mistress of the women of Paradise.' The Prophet then declared Hasan and Husayn to have the best maternal uncle and aunt: Jafar and Umm Hani', son and daughter of Abu Talib. Their maternal uncle and aunt were likewise the best of all uncles and aunts: they were al-Qasim, son of the Messenger of God, and Zaynab, daughter of the Apostle of God. The Prophet concluded: 'O God, you know that Hasan and Husayn shall be in Paradise, their uncles and aunt shall be in Paradise, and those who love them shall be in Paradise, while those who hate them shall be in the Fire." Al-Fayruzabadi, III, 187.
  28.  If the nearest to the Holy Prophet was the one wanted, who else was there save Ali about whom the Holy Prophet had openly said: "I and Ali are of the same Divine Light. "O' Ali thy flesh: is my flesh and thy blood is my blood".
  29. Abu Hurayra, the famous hadith transmitter, related that often when they prayed behind the Messenger of God Hasan and Husayn would jump on his back while he was prostrate in prayer. When he lifted his head, he would move them gently and place them beside him. One evening, after prayers, Abu Hurayra offered to take the two youths home, but the Prophet wished them to stay. Soon, however, a flash of lightning illuminated the sky, and they thus walked in its light until they entered their home. Ibn Hanbal, II, 513; al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, VII, 109.
  30. The friends (awliya') of God, like the prophets, are favoured with miracles. These are not miracles proper (mu'jizat), but rather karamat (divine favours). The lightning incident was one such divine favour by means of which the Prophet wished to inform the community of the special status with which God had favoured the two Imams.  There is a unity between the Prophet and the ahl al-bayt, a unity not simply of blood, but also of the spirit. It is a unity symbolized by the kisa' event. It is, therefore, a unity of love, as the following statement of the Prophet clearly indicates. He said,
    as related on the authority of Salman the Persian: 'Whoever loves Hasan and Husayn, I love him, and whomsoever I love, God also loves, and whomsoever God loves, He shall cause him to enter into the gardens of bliss.' Likewise he who hates Hasan and Husayn shall be consigned to the Fire, because both God and his Messenger will hate him, 'and a terrible punishment awaits him'. Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, p. 221
  31. It is Narrated by Sahbab Akram r.a that they heard from Holy Prophet s.a.w that Hazrat Muhammad s.a.w send some person to call Ansar's & said O peoples of Ansar's ! I tell you about that person if you follow him you will not forget right path , all (Ansar's) said Ya Rasool Allah s.a.w please tell us , & He s.a.w said , This Ali a.s is front of me , please love him & become his friend because of me
  32. Because of my respect please respect him , this words & ordered by Allah Tal ah that I informed you this about that by Hazrat Gabriel a.s .
  33. Hazrat Muhammad s.a.w says , O Ali a.s ! if a person do Ibadat of Allah Tal ah as Hazrat Noah a.s lived in his peoples / nations & he has gold near about Mountain of Uhad & he spend in the way of Allah .& he lived long & he do 1000 Hajj on foot & he died mazloom shaheed between Safa & Marwa but O Ali a.s ! if he do not friendship with you , he will not smelled of Paradise & nor he enter in .
  34. If a person do Ibadat 1000 years in between Rukan & Maqam & in this situation meet with Allah Tal ah & he hate with Ali a.s , then Allah Tal ah will throw him in hell by the holes of nose .
  35. Muslim hagiographical piety extended this unity and intimacy between the Prophet and his two grandchildren to include the angels of heaven. Thus Hudhayfa, a well known companion and traditionist, reported that the Prophet said: 'An angel is here who never came down to earth before this night. He sought permission from his Lord to come down and greet me, and to bring me the
    glad tidings that Fatima is the mistress of the women of Paradise, and that Hasan and Husayn are the masters of the youths of Paradise.' Al-Tirmidhi, II, 307
  36. It is Narrated by H.Usman Ganni that they heard from , Hazrat Rasool Allah s.a.w that He s.a.w says , On the day of Judgment &  there will be Sir at on the corner of the Hell , no one will crossed that one , only that one which had present ,  the Barat Nama or Letter / Prawna from Hazrat Ali Ibn e Abi Talib a.s .
  37. Ali is the one who (long before the creation of the universe) came into being along with the Holy Prophet each of them being a fragment of the same "Noor", (Light) Muhammad having the Prophethood and Ali having the "Wilayath" (Authority).
  38. It is Narrated by Imam Ahmad bin Hubal from Umar ibn e Kutab that Rasool Allah s.a.w says to Hazrat Ali a.s & you are the person who is more high ranked person near of Allah .
  39. Eight are those angels who bear the heavens, as per the Qur'anic Verse: " And the angels shall be on the side of it; and above them shall bear that day `Arsh' (the throne of authority). of your Lord, eight of them (Sura Al-Haaqqah. V.17) Nine are the nine signs given to Moses as stated by God: "And indeed we gave Moses nine clear signs (miracles); so ask the children of Israel when he came to them, Pharaoh said to him; "Verily I deem you O' Moses one bewitched. "(Sura Bani Israel, V 101). Ten are the ten days, i.e. God had promised Moses that he would stay on the mountain of Toor for thirty days, and later added ten more days to this duration, as it is stated in the Qur'an." And we made an appointment with Moses for thirty nights and completed it with ten more;" Thus was completed the term of his Lord, forty nights, and (before he went up) Moses said to his brother Aaron: You take my place among my people, act rightly and follow not the path of the mischief-makers." (Sura Al-A'araf. V.142). Eleven are the brothers of Joseph, son of Jacob, as the Qur'an states, "When said Joseph to his father, O' my father; Verily I did see (dream) eleven stars and the sun and the moon,, I saw them all prostrating to me." (Sura Yousuf. V.4). Twelve are the Twelve water-springs manifested by the staff of Moses, as God states, " And (remember) when Moses sought water for his people; said We, `Strike the rock with your staff' Then gushed out therefrom twelve springs; each people knew their drinking place; "Eat and drink God's provision, and commit not evil in the earth acting mischievously. "(Sura Al Baqarah V60). When the Jewish scholars heard the replies of Hadhrat Ali (a.s.) they said, "We bear witness that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad (saw) is His Messenger and Ali (a.s.) is the "Wasi" and successor of the Messenger of Allah as Aaron was the Wasi of Moses. They all embraced Islam, went back to their tribe and converted all of them to Islam.
  40. Ali while in kthe stage of "Noor" has been the Divine Professor ho imparted knowledge to Gabriel and other angles - hence known as the Teacher of Gabriel.
  41. He was the first to have the honor of being nominated by the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) as his succesor, testator and vice regent.
  42. The Prophet answered that he had a revelation from God to the effect, that, “I should not depute anyone for this proclamation except myself or someone from me. Ali is from me and I am from him. He is my Brother, my Vicegerent, the Executor of my will, and he is my Succe­ssor and performs all those duties that devolve on me.”
  43. Once they were surprised in this attitude of prayer by Abu Talib, the father of Ali, who said unto Muhammad “0 son of my brother, what is this religion that thou art following?” Ahmad Hanbal in his Manaqib; Nasal in his Khasaes; Hakim in his Mustadrak. Ibn Athir. “It is the religion of God, of His angles, of His Prophets and of our ancestor Abraham”, “God has sent me to His servants to direct them towards the truth”. Then turning to Ali, his son, the Abu Talib enquired what his religion was. “O Father”, answered Ali, “I believe in God and his Prophet and go with him.” “Well my son,” said Abu Talib, He will  not call thee to aught save what is good, wherefore thou art free to cleave unto him”.
  44. It is Narrated by Abu Bakr , Umar ibn e Katab , Usman bin Afan , that Hazrat Ali a.s whose is Hazrat Ali a.s enemy is reallyy enemy of Hazrat Muhammad s.a.w & whose is enemy of Hazart Muhamamd s.a.w is enemy of Allah Talah & Allah Talh send his enemy into hell .
  45. Al-bayhaqi narrates from Abu sa'eed that Ali prevented them from riding the camels of the sadaqa that they acquired. He then made a person to be their leader and went to the Prophet (peace be upon him). When Ali came back, he found that their leader gave them permission to ride the camels. When Ali saw that, he became angry and he blamed the leader. (In another narration, it mentions that they were new clothes that Ali prevented them from wearing but they wear them despite his orders). Abu sa'eed said that when we went back to madina, we mentioned to the prophet the harshness that we have seen from Ali. The prophet said: Stop O saad ibn Malik: O By Allah I have known that he is done good for the sake of Allah. (Ibn Katheer says that this hadeeth is <jayed> on the conditions of Al-Nasaie)
  46. Ali is the only one who continues in himself the attributes of alll the Prophets put together.
  47. There is no doubt that the special status of the Imam Husayn in Muslim piety and devotion has in large measure been due to the Imam's great sacrifice of family, wealth, and life itself in the way of God. Husayn's martyrdom - his courage, steadfastness, dignity, and true devotion in times of great crisis - have inspired Muslims of all walks of life. Husayn has inspired the best poetry in all Islamic languages; even non-Muslim poets celebrated his great virtue and valour. Above all, however, the Imam Husayn's martyrdom became a source of strength and endurance for Muslims in times of suffering, persecution and oppression. He has stood with every wronged man or woman before oppressive rulers, reproaching wrongdoers and encouraging the oppressed to persist in their struggle for freedom and dignity. The following encounter between Zayd b. Arqam, a venerable companion of the Prophet, and 'Ubayd Allah b. Ziyad is a living testimony to the struggle between illegitimate authority and the power of right. When the head of the Imam Husayn was brought before him, Ibn Ziyad began to poke its teeth and lips with a stick. Zayd protested: 'Take away your stick! For, by God, I saw the Apostle of God often kiss these lips.' Saying this, Zayd began to weep. Ibn Ziyad reprimanded him, saying: 'May God cause your eyes to weep! Had it not been that you are an old and senile man, I would have cut off your head.' Zayd then walked away, exclaiming: 'O men, you are slaves after this day. For you have slain the son of Fatima and set as amir over you the son of Marjana [i.e., Ibn Ziyad]. By God, he shall kill the best of you and enslave the most wicked among you. Perish those who accept humiliation and shame.' Zayd then said, 'O Ibn Ziyad, I shall tell you something that will enrage you even more. I saw the Apostle of God seating Hasan on his left leg and Husayn on his right, and say, "O God, I commend them and the most righteous of the people of faith to your trust." How have you dealt with the trust of the Prophet, O Ibn Ziyad?' Ibn Hajar, p. 118.
  48. It is Narrated by Sahahba Akram r.a that they heard from Hazrat Muhammad s.a.w that He S.a.w says , His name was Amir ul Momineen a.s  when Adam a.s Rooh & Body was being created , it is that time Allah Tal ah said to Arwah (rooh) , I am not you God , all the Rooh's replied , yes you are our God , then Allah Tal ah said , I am your God , Muhammad s.a.w is your Nabi & Ali a.s is your Ameer .
  49. Divine wisdom in creation can be best discerned, according to the Qur'an, in the order of nature, and in the human individual and his society. Muslim hagiography has recorded the dramatic effect the death of Husayn had on nature. Thus the famous traditionist al-Bayhaqi reported that when al Husayn b. 'Ali was killed, the sun was so deeply eclipsed that stars were seen at midday. People feared that it was the Day of Resurrection. Ibn Hajar, p. 118.
  50. Who Has Letter Of Waliyat (Barat Namma) Hazrat Ali A.S He Will Enter In Paradise.
    451.                      Hazrat Gabriel A.S Feel Proud Towards  All The Angels,  As A Servent Of Hazrat Ali Ibn E Abi Talib A.S.
    452.    And Allah Loves Those Who Cleanse Themselves. (At-Tawbah, 9 :108 )
    453.    It Is Narrated By H.Abu Bakr Siddiq , H.Umar Farooq , H.Usman & Sahaba R.A , One Day , That We Went With Hazrat Ali A.S, He Is Only The One Whose Sun Says To Hazrat Ali Ibn E Abi Talib A.S (Sun Says , Assalam O Alkium Ya Amir Ul Momineen A.S).
    454.    He Is First Who Born In Khana Kaaba. No One Born Before In Kaaba Before .
    455.    His Rank Is Same In Paradise Like My Rank Is .
    456.    When Allah Talah Made His Caliph On Earth , He Asked From The Angels , What Are The Name's So At Time , Hazrat Adam A.S Called These Ism's (Punjtan Pak A.S / 14 Masomeen A.S) Names .Because Of These Ism's Hazrat Adam Was Success ( & Appointed As A Caliph On Earth).
    457.    When Hazrat Noah A.S Was Caught In Strom , He Called Hazrat Ali A.S.
    458.    Hazrat Muhammad S.A.W Says , That Allah Talah Has Created 70,000 Angels From The Noor Of Hazrat Ali Ibn E Abi Talib A.S & These Angels Do Estagfar .
    459.    Hazrat Ali A.S & His Shia's Are Successful.
    460.    The Prophet Sent `Ali As A Commander Of An Army To The Yemen. On His Return He Set Out For Mecca To Meet The Prophet, And, On Reaching The Environs Of Mecca, He Appointed One Of The Soldiers In His Place And Himself Hurried On To Present The Account Of His Expedition To The Messenger Of Allah.
    461.    That Person Divided Up The Garments Which `Ali Had Brought Along With Them Among The Soldiers, So That They Could Enter Mecca In New Clothes. When `Ali Returned, He Objected To This Action, And Reproved That Man For Lack Of Discipline, Because No Decision Should Have Been Taken About The Garments Before Orders Had Been Received From The Prophet About What To Do With Them. In The Eyes Of `Ali, Such An Action Was In Fact A Kind Of Expropriation From The Baytu 'L-Mal (The Treasury Of The Muslims) Without Giving Notification To, And Obtaining Permission From, The Leader Of The Muslims. For This Reason
    462.     `Ali Gave The Order That They Should Take Off The Garments And Put Them In A Particular Place, Until They Could Be Delivered To The Prophet And He Himself Could Make A Decision About Them.
    463.    Because Of This, `Ali's Soldiers Became Disgruntled, And, As Soon As They Had Gone In To See The Prophet, They Complained About `Ali's Harshness Over The Garments.
    464.    The Prophet Addressed Them, And Said: Oh Men, Do Not Grumble About 'Ali. I Swear By Allah That He Is More Intensely In The Way Of God Than That Anyone Should Complain About Him.
    465.    Ali Had No Concern For Anyone In The Way Of God. Rather, If He Showed Interest In Someone Or Was Concerned About Him, It Was Because Of God. Naturally, Such An Attitude Makes Enemies, And It Causes Offence To Souls Full Of Greed And Craving And Brings Them Pain.
    466.    When I Took Up The Reins Of Government One Party Broke Their Allegiance (Nakathah), Another Missed The Truth Of The Religion (Maraqah), And Another Deviated (Qasatah).
    467.    He Was The Great Warrior.
    468.    A Man Said To Imam As-Sadiq (As): "We Have Named Our Children After You And Your Fathers; Will This Action Be Of Any Benefit To Us?" He Said: "Yes, By God; Is The Religion Other Than Love?" Then He Gave The Verse If You Love Allah, Follow Me, And Allah Will Love You As Evidence.
    469.    When Hazrat Ibrahim Was Thrown Into Fire , He Called These Ism's (Punjtan Pak A.S / 14 Masomeen A.S) & When He Reached To The Fire , The Fire Converted Into Flowers (Beacuse Of These Ism's).
    470.    Hazrat Micheel A.S , Hazrat Israfeel A.S & Hazrat Izraheel A.S Are His Servant.
    471.    Before `Ali, The Prophet Called These People By These Names When He Said To Him: "After Me, You Will Fight With The Nakithun, The Qasitun And The Mariqun." This Tradition Is Narrated By Ibn Abi'l Hadid In His Commentary On Nahju 'L-Balaghah (Vol. 1, P.201), Where He Says That It Is One Of The Proofs Of The Prophethood Of Muhammad Since The Tradition Is Quite Explicit About The Future And The Unknown (Ghayb), And There Is No Kind Of Hidden Interpretation Or Ellipsis In It.
    472.    He Was With Me At That No One Present .
    473.                      It Is Narrated By Hazrat Salman Farsi R.A That We Heard From Holy Prophet S.A.W That He Says ,  "Allah, These Are The People Of My Ahlul-Bayt And Very Specially My Own And My Protectors.

    475.                      It Is Narrated By Hazrat Salman Farsi R.A That We Heard From Holy Prophet S.A.W That He Says ,  Whoever Gives Him Trouble, Gives Me Trouble Too;
    476.                      It Is Narrated By Hazrat Salman Farsi R.A That We Heard From Holy Prophet S.A.W That He Says , Whoever Makes Him Unhappy, Makes Me Unhappy Too,

    483.    Ali Was The Most Loved Person Before God And The Prophet, And Thus Naturally The Best Of Those Who Are Loved. Anas Ibn Malik Says: "Every Day, One Of The Children Of The Ansar Would Do Some Task For The Prophet. One Day My Turn Came. Umm Ayman Brought A Chicken Dish Before The Prophet And Said: `Messenger Of Allah! I Have Caught This Chicken Myself And Cooked It For You.' He Said: `O God! Send The Best Of (Thy) Slaves That He May Share With Me In Eating This Chicken.' At That Very Moment Someone Knocked On The Door And The Prophet Said To Me: `Anas! Open The Door.' I Said: `May God Make It A Man Of The Ansar!' But I Found 'Ali In Front Of The Door, And I Said: `The Prophet Is Busy.' Then I Returned To Stand In My Place. Again There Was A Knock At The Door, And The Prophet Said: `Open The Door.' Again I Prayed That It Would Be Someone From The Ansar. I Opened The Door And Again It Was 'Ali. I Said: `The Prophet Is Busy.' Then I Returned To Stand In My Place. Yet Again There Was A Knock At The Door, And The Prophet Said: `Anas, Go And Open The Door, And Bring Him In. You Are Not The First Person To Love Your Own People; That Is Not One Of The Ansar.' I Went And Brought 'Ali In, And He Ate The Chicken Dish With The Prophet."

  51. -O Jovayrieh! One day when the Holy Prophet was receiving revelation and his head rested on my lap, the sun set while I had not performed the afternoon prayer. The Holy Prophet asked me: Have you performed the afternoon prayer. The Holy Prophet said: No. The Holy Prophet said: O God, Ali was in a stage of worship, meeting the need of Your Messenger. Then the Holy Prophet called God by His Chief Name. All of a sudden the sun returned from its position and I performed my prayer with tranquillity. The sun set after sometime. Then the Holy Prophet - may my parents be sacrificed for him - taught me that name. I too recited the Du with the same name.
