STARTING WITH THE GREATEST NAME OF ALLAH(SWT WHO IS THE MASTER AND KING OF THE WHOLE UNIVERSE.
INTRODUCTION LIFE OF HAZRAT ALI:-
Hazrat Ali (RA) belonged to the tribe Quraish and the family of Bani Hashim in Makah. He was born In the Holy Kabah in Makah on Friday, 13th Rajab 23 BH. He (RA) was the son of Hazrat Abu Talib (RA) the uncle of Holy Prophet (SAW), who had nourished and brought up Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). His mother Fatima bint-e Asad was also a noble lady belonging to the tribe of Bani Hashim whom the Prophet (SAW) respected as his own mother.
When he was born his name was suggested by Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) that’s why his name became more significant. Hazrat Ali (R.A) had a great honor of being the first cousin of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) and was also brought up under His kind and inspiring supervision for most of the time of his life.
EARLY LIFE HAZRAT ALI
Hazrat Ali (RA) was the first among youth who accepted Islam when He was at the age of 10. Hazrat Ali (R.A) was only 10 years old when the Messenger of Almighty Allah received the very first Revelation from the Almighty Lord. He (SAW) was directed to start preaching of Islam from His own family.
That’s why He (SAW) started preaching of Islam from His family and closest relatives. For this purpose, He (SAW) invited all to the meal and asked from all of them that “Who will join me in the cause of Almighty Allah?”
The entire gathering remained silent, but the little Ali (R.A) stood up with great courage and made his firm belief in the Word of Righteousness known in front of all. He (RA) 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, O Messenger of Allah.” Thus he became the first youth to enter the loop of Islam.
Born to Abu Talib and Fatimah bint Asad, Ali is the only person to be born in the sacred sanctuary of the Kaaba in Mecca, the holiest place in Islam, according to many classical Islamic sources, especially Shia ones.Ali was the first male who accepted Islam and according to some authors the first Muslim. Hazrat Ali protected Muhammad from an early age and took part in almost all the battles fought by the nascent Muslim community. After migrating to Medina, Hazrat ali r.a married Muhammad’s daughter Fatimah.
Since Allah had inspired the Prophet(SAW) with the science of Quran and the Islamic principles, Muslims considered that the Prophet (SAW) is the one who has the knowledge of all sciences. They were worried because there was no enough time to learn from His(SAW) knowledge. So, He (SAW) told them:
“I am the city of knowledge, and Ali (RA) is its gate and the one who wants to enter this city must pass through its gate.”
That is due to the fact that Ali (RA) lived with the Prophet (SAW), learned all his knowledge and was the only companion who was able to answer all questions concerning all issues. He was the authority whom all the companions used to refer to, while he did not have to ask anyone about any issue.
Ali (RA) gained this high degree of knowledge because he learned it directly from the Prophet (SAW).
