Hazrat 'Ali (radhiyallahu 'anhu) (31)

Hazrat Aasim bin Dhamrah (rahimahullah) reports:

On one occasion, Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) addressed us saying, “Shall I inform you regarding the one who is regarded as a true Faqeeh? The true Faqeeh is the one who does not cause people to lose hope in the mercy of Allah Ta‘ala, and neither does he give them concession to engage in the disobedience of Allah Ta‘ala. The true Faqeeh does not make people feel secure regarding the punishment of Allah Ta‘ala, and he does not leave the Qur’aan Majeed for anything else besides it (i.e. he holds onto the teachings of the Qur’aan Majeed at all times).”

Kumail bin Ziyaad (rahimahullah) reports the following:

On one occasion, I accompanied Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) as he came out from the city and proceeded towards Jabbaan (the outskirts of the city of Kufah). On coming to Jabbaan, Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) turned towards the cemetery and called out, “O inhabitants of the graves! O people whose bodies have decomposed! O people of loneliness! What is your condition? Our condition is that the estates of the deceased have been wound up and distributed, the children of the deceased have been orphaned and the spouses of the deceased have now remarried! This is our condition, so inform us regarding your condition?”

During the Battle of Uhud, Hazrat Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) displayed extreme courage and bravery in fighting the enemy. Thus, he was personally responsible for killing four of the leaders of the Quraish, among whom was Talhah bin Abi Talhah.

On one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had no food to eat and was undergoing hunger. When Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) learnt that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was undergoing hunger, then his heart was immediately filled with worry and concern. Such was his love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) that he could not rest while knowing that the Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was in difficulty and hardship. However, Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) himself did not have any food to share with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Hazrat Ya’laa bin Murrah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentions:

On one occasion during the khilaafah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the companions of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) said to one another, “Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is engaged in war and the enemy are nearby. We fear that a surprise attack may be launched against him at any time. Thus, ten people from among us should guard him every night.”

‘Ali bin Rabee‘ah reports that on one occasion, Hazrat Ja’dah bin Hubairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) came to Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and said, “O Ameer-ul-Mu’mineen! At times, two people come to you (with their dispute). One of the two is such that you are more beloved to him than even his own family and his wealth, whereas the other person has such enmity for you that if he was able to slaughter and kill you, he would do so. Yet, despite this, you pass judgment in favor of the one who hates you, against the one who loves you!”

On one occasion during the khilaafah of Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), two women came to him seeking financial assistance. One of the women was an Arab, and the other was her freed slave who was not an Arab.

Seeing their plight, Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) instructed for a portion of grain and forty dirhams to be given to each of them. Thereafter, when the grain and money was brought, the freed slave gratefully took her share and left. However, the Arab woman was displeased.

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports the following:

On one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) came to visit me while I was ill. When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) entered, he heard me making the following du‘aa, “O Allah! If the stipulated time of my death has come, then grant me relief from this illness through taking my life. If the stipulated time of my death has not come, then cure me from this illness. If this sickness is a test from You, then bless me with the ability to observe sabr (patience).”

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) sent me as his governor to Yemen. Before departing, I addressed him and said, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! You are sending me to people who are older than me. Furthermore, I am a youngster and I do not have any insight in the field of qadhaa (judicial matters).”

In the year 10AH, before the Hajjatul Wadaa (the farewell haj), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), sent Hazrat Khaalid bin Waleed (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) to the people of Hamdaan in Yemen to invite them to Islam.
