Hadrat Ali (R.A.) had taken pledge of loyalty on the hands of all the three past Khalifahs. However he was late in taking pledge at the hand of Hadrat Abu Bakr (R.A.).

The reason why he was late in taking pledge on the hands of Hadrat Abu Bakr (R.A.) was the serious illness of his beloved wife, Hadrat Fatima (R.A.) and that he was busy in collection of the Holy Qur'an. It is mentioned in the famous history book, Tabaqat ibn Sa'd: When Hadrat Abu Bakr (R.A.) enquired of Ali (R.A.) why he was so late in taking pledge of loyalty and whether he disliked his "Khilafat", Ali (R.A.) replied, "I do not dislike your leadership but the fact is that I had taken an oath after the death of the Holy Prophet not to put on my sheet (i.e. not to engage in any work) except for performing Salat until I have collected all the parts of the Holy Qur'an." The Hadrat Ali (R.A.) took pledge of loyalty on the hand of Abu Bakr and helped him throughout his Khilafat. He was very active during the time of Hadrat Umar and also married his daughter, Umm-i-Kulthum to him. In the matter of Hadrat Uthman's election he voted in his favour as has been mentioned before.


Ali (R.A.) was not only a great warrior but a great scholar as well. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi we Salaam) said about him, I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate." He was one of the great jurists among the Companions. The Holy Prophet appointed him as the Qadi (Judge) of Yemen during his life time. He was a master of Arabic and his writings were as effective as his speech.

Trust of Muhammad PBUH on Hazrat Ali RA

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi we Salaam) loved him very much. The night when the Holy Prophet was migrating to Medina, his house was surrounded by the bloodthirsty tribesmen, who had plotted to assassinate him. They were ready to kill any person who came out of the house. In such a situation, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi we Sallam) asked Hadrat Ali (R.A.) to sleep in his bed. He followed the command gladly and immediately jumped in the bed.

Although the Meccans did not accept his mission, they considered the Holy Prophet(sallallahu alaiyhi wasallam) the most trustworthy man of Mecca and continued keeping their trusts (cash and gold etc.) with him. It was Ali (R.A.) to whom the Holy Prophet gave the deposits to return to the owners, when he was leaving Makkah for Madinah. Ali (R.A.) migrated to Medina after returning the deposits


When the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi we Salaam) started revelations Hadrat Ali (R.A.) was about ten years old. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi we Salaam) disclosed his mission before Ali and he accepted it immediately, thus he became the first youth to enter the fold of Islam. When the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi we Salaam) started to preach openly, he invited all of his family members to a feast and announced his mission before them. Nobody listened to him, but young Ali stood up and said. "Though my eyes are sore, my legs are thin and I am the youngest of all those present here yet I will stand by you, 0h Messenger of Allah." Hearing this all the leaders of Quraish laughed but Ali proved his words to be true after supporting the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'alaihi we Salaam) in his mission from the beginning till the end.

Hazrat Ali RA Lion of Allah , Sher-e-Khuda

The fort of Khyber was a strong fort built of stone with an iron gate. It was the strong hold of the jews who invaded muslim lands and villages around the area. They killed muslims and looted their property. Warnings were given to the Jews of Khyber to stop their mischievous deeds but they did not bother even to acknowledge their misdeeds. The Holy Prophet proceeded to stop this problem for the muslims. Muslim forces encamped outside this fort. It was in the month of Muharram in the 7th year of Hijra. 

The Holy Prophet sent a force under the command of Abu Bakr [ra] to overpower the Jews, but the mission did not succeed. The Holy Prophet changed the Commander every day, but the fort proved to be a hard nut to crack. With the failure of successive missions, that night the Prophet [pbuh] announced,” Tomorrow I will give the flag of Islam to a man who loves Allah and the Prophet of Allah and Allah and His Prophet love him.” The Next day, after morning prayers the Prophet called for Ali (AS) and gave the Flag in his hands. 
As the Muslim forces came close to the fort, the Jew warrior Marhab emerged out of the fort, and challenged Ali to a duel. Marhab also known as Abu Ablit and Antar enjoyed reputation as a great warrior equivalent to a thousand men. 
 Marhab sang the battle song: "I am Abu Ablit; My name is Antar. I am armed to the teeth. My home is Khyber. I am a lion whom none can face. "
Ali accepted the challenge with the battle song: "I am Ali, the lion of God. I fight in the name of God. Be prepared for your doom. He awaits you."

The day, Ali appeared to be endowed with unusual extraordinary power. He [a] killed Marhab in no time. Imam Ali [a] exhibited supernatural strength that day and was most ferocious than the fiercest of lions. Verily, he was the "Lion of Allah". The Battle of Khyber was another turning point in the annals of Islam. It had far reaching consequences.

Hazrat Ali RA AS K Aqwal

1- Tabeyat ki Narmi aur Sakhawat, insan ko Dushmnon k dilon main b Mehboob bana deti hai.

2- Tum acha karo aur zamana tum ko bura samjhy, yeh tumharay haq main behtar hai, bajaye is k k tum bura karo aur zamana tum ko acha samjhay.

3- Wo gunah jo tumhare dil mein ranj paida kare, us naiki se behtar hai jo tumhare dil mein ghuroor paida kar de.

4- barish ka qatraha seepee aur saanp dono k muh main girta hai.
Seepee ussay moti bana deti hai aur saanp zehar bana deta hai.
Jis ka jaisa zarf waisi us ki takhleeq hoti hai.

5- Koi GUNAH Lazzat k lye mat karna
q k Lazat khatam ho jaegi GUNAH baqi rahjaega ,
Or koi NEKI taklif ki waja se mat chorna q k
taklif khatam ho jaegi NEKI baqi rahjaege!

6-  Agar ksi ka banna chahte ho tou puri haqeeqat se ban jao
Warna,apni zaat main aisi haqeeqat paida kr lo

7- Ibn-e-adam!
Jab gunahon k bawajood Allah ki naimmatain musalsal tujhe milti rahen tou hoshyaar ho jana, k tera hisaab qareeb aur sakht tareen hai

8- Jab Tum Duniya ki Muflasi say Tang Aa jao aur Rizq ka koi Rasta na Niklay to Sadqa day kar ALLAH say Tijarat karo...

9- Sab se buri Kamai sod ki kamai,
Sab se buri Mazrat wo, jo mot k waqt ki jaey,
Sab se bura Khana yatim ka maal khana he.

10- "Allah ki shan ye nahe k DUA ka darvaza kholay aur QUBOLIAT ka band kr day Ya TAUBA ka darvaza kholay aur MAGHFIRAT ka darvaza band kr day".

A beautiful Quote of Hazrat Ali (RA-AS)

Silence will create respect and dignity; justice and fairplay will bring more friends; benevolence

and charity will enhance prestige and position; courtesy will draw benevolence; service of mankind

will secure leadership and good words will overcome powerful enemies.
