He was born in the purest of the places (Ka’bah) – House of Allah Almighty, the best of the days (Friday) – Al Juma, Martyred in the best of months (Ramadhan) – Holy month of Ramadan, in the best of nights (Qadr) – 19th of Ramadhan, In the best of moments (Salah) – offering namaz (prayers), in the best of the positions (Sujood) – prostration and was married to the best woman (Fatimah)- The first lady of Paradise, yet they still blame me for loving you Ya Ali…
The simplicity of the Life of Imam Ali
At the time of serving Iftar, Imam Ali (as) said to his daughter :
“You have served two kinds of dishes for me, don’t you know that I follow my cousin, the Messenger of Allah Muhammad’s (saw) path?? I swear by Allah that I shall not break my fast until you take one away”
He is Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib (AS)
A man was once sitting outside of a house and eating some dry bread. A beggar approached and asked him if there was anyone who could feed him. The man advised the beggar to walk inside the house and approach Imam Husayn (as) and he will give you the food. The beggar was fed with several dishes until he was full and happy, before leaving he asked Imam Husayn (as) that if he could also take some food for the man who was sitting outside his house and was eating dry bread. On hearing this Imam Husayn (as) replied with tears in his eyes, that this house belongs to the man sitting outside and he is Imam Ali (as), he is my father…Amir al-Muminin (The commander of faithful).
“Be like the flower that gives it’s fragrance to even the hand that crushes it”
