Imam Ali 

Ameerul Momineen Ali Ibn Abu Talib : {600-661 C.E.} The Lion of Allah.

Almighty Allah Clearly says in the Final Book,

“And do not speak of those who are slain in the way of Allah as dead; nay, they are alive,but you perceive not”

[Quran 2:154]

The Above Verse of Holy Quran is applicable in its entirety to Hazrat Imam Ali (A.S) who was in the 40th year of Hijri,in the small hours of the morning of 19th Ramadan,was attacked with a poisoned sword by Ibn Maljam of the Khariji sect, on 21st Ramadan Hazrat Imam Ali (A.S) passed away.

Hazrat Imam Ali (A.S) was born on Friday, the 13th Day of Rajab 600 C.E.

Hazrat Fatima binte Asad, Mother of Hazrat Imam Ali (A.S) entered the precincts of the Kaaba and prayed to Allah saying O’my protector ease my pain.’All of a sudden the wall of the Kaaba opened up and she, as if by some unseen force went inside the Kaaba and the wall closed.

Hazrat Imam Ali (A.S) the youngest son of Abu Talib was born inside the Holy Kaaba. She stayed inside for three days. On the 3rd day she came out through the door and Muhammad was waiting outside. She told Muhammad {sallallahu alaihi wasallam} that the boy had not taken any milk. Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad {sallallahu alaihi wasallam} gave him the first feed from his mouth and afterwards asked his uncle Abu Talib that he wished to adopt the baby.

Hazrat Imam Ali (A.S) entered the house of Muhammad {sallallahu alaihi wasallam} from the very first day of his birth. ‘Ali’s mother Fatima binte Assad Also lived there who looked after his own son as well as Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) so much so that later the Holy Prophet used to say that she was like his own mother.

Khawja Moinuddin Chishti Ajmeri mentions this fact in his famous Quartet saying that when ‘Ali was born inside the kaaba the Sky and the earth was filled with a light and Angel Gabriel announced that a child was born in the house of Allah.
