25 best quotes of Hazrat Ali A.S
Imam Ali was born on the 13th of Rajab of the 30th year of the Elephant (A.D. 600). His cousin, Muhammad, was now 30 years old. Ali’s parents were Abu Talib ibn Abdul Muttalib, and Fatima, the daughter of Asad, both of the clan of Hashim.
The birth of Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (AS) is observed with due reverence and solemnity throughout the Muslim World on on the 13th of Rajab each year.
Indeed he was the greatest Muslim ruler, administrator, polymath, jurist and statesman, who left indelible imprints on Islamic history. After Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Imam Ali (AS) occupies the most distinguished and revered position in Islam on account of his knowledge, wisdom, eloquence and sagaciousness. This may be the reason the Prophet of Islam, having metaphorically called himself a ‘City of Knowledge’, eagerly declared Imam Ali the ‘gateway’ to this very city. Hazrat Ali used to proudly call himself a humble disciple and ardent follower of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). So his political thought and philosophy can also logically be attributed to the Prophet of Islam.
