Great composition with dedication.

Hazrat Ali (ra) was endowed with extraordinary talent. From a young age he was a seeker of knowledge and a seeker of knowledge. He always practiced knowledge. He was one of the best figures of his time in Hadith, Tafsir Arabic Literature and Arabic Grammar. It is said that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was the city of knowledge, and Ali was his gate. His book Diwane Ali is an invaluable resource in Arabic literature.

Great Islamic book!

Hazrat Ali (R) is one of the four special followers of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who are revered by the Muslim Ummah. Among the Companions, Hazrat Ali (R) was one of the best political experts and was well versed in the Arabic language and literature. Along with his unique knowledge and wisdom, he got the opportunity to understand the meaning and significance of the verses including the context of the revelation of Surah from the special closeness of the Prophet (pbuh).

Nicely presented book indeed,

From a young age, he was fearless. Proof of which is found by converting to Islam at the age of only 10 years. According to sources, he was the first Muslim man to take refuge in the shadow of Islam, who responded to the call of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and converted to Islam without any discrimination and performed the first prayer with the Prophet. He had deep faith in the last messenger of Islam, Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH).

Listen and be fascinated.

Hazrat Ali (ra) was endowed with valor and extraordinary strength. Hearing his name would create panic in the minds of infidels. The Prophet (pbuh) gave him the sword of Zulfiqar for his extraordinary bravery in the battle of Badr. When he conquered the fort of Kamus in Khaybar, Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) gave him the title of Asadullah. He wrote the Hudaybiya treaty in his own hand. He had the flag of the Muslim army in his hand during the conquest of Mecca.

One of the best book about Hazrat Ali(R.A).

The Prophet (pbuh) entrusted Hazrat Ali with the responsibility of his trust during his migration, which he has faithfully observed and will be remembered forever. Hazrat Ali has honestly fulfilled all the responsibilities ignoring the risk of his life. The responsibility that Hazrat Ali showed to the Prophet was outstanding and he was a great devotee of religion as well.

Informative!

Hazrat Ali (ra) was the fourth caliph of Islam. He was born in 600 AD to the Banu Hashim tribe of the Quraish dynasty of Makkah. He was the son of Abu Talib, the uncle of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). His nicknames were Abu Torab and Abul Hasan. From childhood he lived with Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH).

It makes me amazed.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) loved Hazrat Ali (ra) very much and as long as he was there, he guided Ali (ra) and gave him the right advice. It is said that Hazrat Ali (R) is the person who was born inside the Holy Kaaba. Although there is disagreement on this point.

Learnt a lot from here.

Even after becoming the caliph of the Muslim world, he did not keep any working man at home. He could not do significant service to Islam with his financially unsustainable wealth. However, through his bravery, courage and writing, he has done a lot of service to Islam. Hazrat Ali (ra) is the ideal of all of us in courage, bravery, knowledge practice, self restraint and unpretentious life.

Good to listen this audiobook.

Hazrat Ali was a very loyal and devoted devotee of Muhammad (pbuh). When Muhammad asked Ali (as) to marry his beloved daughter Hazrat Fatima (R) by the command of Allah, Ali (as) eagerly accepted. This great quality of Hazrat Ali has made him a place of honor in history and scriptures. We have a lot to gain knowledge from this gratitude of Hazrat Ali to the Prophet.

Great to hear it!

Hazrat Ali was engrossed in the pursuit of knowledge all his life so he was indifferent to acquiring wealth. The importance of gaining knowledge for human beings can be realized by knowing about the biography of Hazrat Ali. He earned his living by working hard and spending that money on living a simple life. We have a lot of knowledge to take from his life that will help us to follow the right path in the next life.

Great thing talk about knowledge.

After the martyrdom of Hazrat 'Uthman (R), the rebels pressured Hazrat Talha, Zubair and Ali (R) to take over the caliphate. Everyone denied it very strongly. It is known from various narrations that Hazrat Ali (R) kept rejecting this proposal again and again. Finally, the people of Madinah went to Hazrat Ali (R) and said that this position of Khilafah could not be vacant in this way. There is currently no better person than you for this position.

How amazing the book is!

Hazrat Umar (R) mentioned the names of six eminent Companions before his death and bequeathed to one of them the election of the next Caliph. Ali was one of them. Before his death, he commented on Ali (R): If people make Ali the caliph, he will be able to lead them on the right path. During the visit of Hazrat Umar to his Baitul Makdas, Ali (R) took his place in Medina.

An amazing book!

Three members of the Kharijite community, Abdur Rahman Muljim, Al-Barak ibn Abdillah, and Amer ibn Bakr at-Tamimi, met in a secret meeting after the battle of Nahrawan. After a long discussion, they came to the conclusion that Ali, Muawiyah and 'Amr ibn al-As (R) were responsible for the internal strife of the Muslim Ummah, so these three persons should be removed from the world.

Feel it with your eternal realization.

A new group called Khareji was born. At first they were Ali supporters. But later they started spreading the belief that appointing a person as 'Hakam' or arbitrator in the matter of religion is Kufr. Ali (R) has acted contrary to the Qur'an by accepting Abu Musa Ashari (R) as 'Hakam'. So Hazrat Ali has lost the legitimacy to claim his allegiance. They became separated from Hazrat Ali.

Great people share about the destination,

Analyzing all the historical facts, the conclusion that can be found is that the arbitration board failed to make peace as it was at the last moment that Amr ibn al-As (R) came to the conclusion reached with Hazrat Abu Musa Ashari (R). Disappointed, the Muslims returned from Dumatul Jandal. Then Ali (R) and Muawiyah (R) made a treaty to stop the unnecessary bloodshed. From that day onwards, the Muslim caliphate was divided into two parts.

I’ve learnt a lot here.

Hazrat Ali (R) was about to win in the last battle of Siffin, which is called ‘Lailatul Har’. Hazrat Muawiyah (R) understood the feeling of defeat and called for reconciliation through the Holy Quran. His soldiers hung the Qur'an on the head of the spear and held it high, saying that this Qur'an will decide our conflict. A ceasefire was declared. Hazrat Ali (R) appointed Abu Musa Ashari (R) and Hazrat Mu'awiyah (R) appointed Hazrat Amr Ibnul As Hakam or arbitrator.

Such a great book.

Hazrat Ali (ra) was very simple from his childhood. He did not like pomp. He worked hard to provide food. Even after becoming the caliph, he provided for his family by working for others. He lived without eating. There was nothing arrogant about him. He mingled with the rich and the poor. He was endowed with immense knowledge.

Listen it and make yourself resourceful!

After the battle of the camels, Hazrat Ali (R) called on Hazrat Muawiyah (R), who had not yet taken the oath of allegiance to him, to surrender to him in the greater interest of Islam. But Hazrat Muawiyah (R) did not surrender to him on the pretext that Hazrat Uthman (R) who was of Umayyad descent must first avenge his blood.

Have a wonderful composition!

Hazrat Ali (R) tried his best to avoid war and bloodshed, but all his efforts ended in failure. Unfortunately, there was a battle between him and the army of Hazrat Ayesha (R), however, Hazrat Talha (R) and Hazrat Zubayr (R) left the army before the battle and were killed by another enemy. Hazrat Ayesha's (R) troops were defeated but Hazrat Ali (R) showed due respect to her and took care of her safety.

Thanks to the author to discover it.

Hazrat Ali's contribution to Islam is unforgettable. He showed the greatest courage and bravery in all the battles of the time of Rasulullah Kareem (peace be upon him). For this reason, the Prophet (peace be upon him) gave him a sword called 'Zul-Fikar' with the title 'Haider'. He participated in all battles except the Tabuk campaign.
