‘Days are the pages of your life time so bind them with your best deeds ‘ (Hazrat Ali-RA)

The importance of Hazrat Ali (AS) to the Holy Prophet (PBUH) can be gauged from the fact that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) usually assigned Hazrat Ali (AS) to perform the most important and difficult tasks.

Throughout life, Hazrat Ali (AS) continued to obey the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in every way. Seeing this sacrifice, the Holy Prophet said in his sermon of Ghadir Khumm: “Whoever is the enemy of Ali is also my enemy and whoever is the friend of Ali is also my friend.

After the departure of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) until the time of the third caliph, Hazrat Ali (AS) performed important deeds and services and when Hazrat Ali (AS) became the caliph, he overcame the unrest and disturbances in the whole country, but the enemies did not allow him to rule for long and killed him.

He died in 5 AH. Total five year nine months to rule. Nahj al-Balaghah is a masterpiece of his teachings, sermons, wills, essays and moral values, compiled by Sharif Razi. The article highlights some of the important moral values ​​of Hazrat Ali which are a beacon of light for human beings.

Hazrat Ali joined Beloved Prophet (PBUH) in all the battles except the battle of Tabuk in which Beloved Prophet (Pbuh) left him for the protection of the people of Madinah and said, “O Ali! You have the same relationship with me as between Aaron and Moses.” Except that no prophet will come after me.”

Hazrat Ali (AS) showed the essence of bravery in all the battles and in the battle of Khyber he defeated the warriors of the Jews and in the fierce fighting he lifted the gate of Khyber in his hands and used it as a shield. The Prophet (PBUH) had given him a shield in the battle of Uhud called “Hatamiyah”

The Famous Nawaat khwan Hassan bin Thabit wrote best words as mark of respect towards Hazrat Ali (AS). Below is the translation of these Arabic words

Translation: And Ali had troubled eyes, he was waiting for healing medicine, but he could not find a doctor, and in the end he healed Ali’s eyes with his prophets blessed mouth water (saliva) , so blessed is he who heals and blessed is he Healed and Prophet said: “I  today(Khyber Day) I am giving the flag to a young man who is the owner of a cutting sword and a brave man. He who loves Allah and obeys His commands loves Allah and Allah also loves him too and by his hands Allah Almighty will conquer the strongholds. Prophet have made Ali among all human beings to carry out this campaign. Prophet chose him and made him his minister and brother. Hazrat Ali says: “After that, I never had any pain in my eyes for the rest of my life. Then the Prophet (PBUH) blessed  Hazrat Ali with the flag and said:” Go. And don’t look back.
