The titles of this speech

I'm gonna read about the oppression towards Ali Ibn Abi Talib and his generation in this era, which is thousands of times worse than in the past. This is not a Shia-Sunni issue; it's

something that Judaism has recorded, Christianity has recorded, everyone agrees.

I'm gonna read you the privileges of Ali Ibn Abi Talib, which only this person had in the world.

No other one has these privileges, not even God's Messenger

I'll read his privileges; look what we do with Ali today.

These privileges I'll read have nothing to do with Shia-Sunni or Arab-nonArab.

He's a famous person worldwide

mentioned in all religious books

  1. Kaaba's wall was cracked only for the birth of Ali Ibn Abi Talib.

Ali's (AS) mother entered Kaaba then the wall was closed; no one could do anything with the wall and door for three days.

This is real.

On the third day, Fatima bint Asad came out with the 3-day-old infant in her arms


  • In the arms of Muhammad Ibn Abdullah O Allah, peace be upon Muhammad and his holy 

He opened his eyes in the arms of God's Messenger

Of course, on that day, there were still ten years left until his prophethood, Ali Ibn Abi Talib was born when he was 30 and opened his eyes to God's Messenger.

Listen up


  • Opening his eyes, he said peace be upon you, O God's Messenger,

He said: O God's Messenger, should I recite the psalm?

recite the Bible?

recite the Torah?

recite the Quran?

He recited the Quran, Surah Qad Aflah al-Mu'minun [Certainly will the believers have succeeded].

Ten years left until God's Messenger be a prophet, when the verses revealed; "Qad Aflah al-Mu'minun" is in the middle of the Quran.

He recited

I must tell you that everyone everywhere is a human being if he's a believer.

The Quran says: Certainly will the believers have succeeded

believer is someone who surrenders to God and His Messenger

Imam Ali recited the Qur'an for God's Messenger

Look, there isn't [such a] humanity in the universe.


  • He's the first who converted to Islam

without a bit of hesitation

He was 10 when Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (blessing) introduced himself [as a prophet]

I testify that there's no God but Allah, I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, he said.

Of course, he had announced when he was 3-day-old.

These are the qualities that no one has except Ali Ibn Abi Talib.


  • No one in the world fought like Ali.

Ready in all wars, without a single bit of hesitation, fear, or betrayal.

I'll tell you one

in the Battle of Khaybar

It's been recorded by Shiites, Sunnis, Jews, Armenians, and Christians

there were 90 wounds on his body.

It means 90 sword [strikes];

After he was laid down, they opened the wounds to clean and found each wound containing over two wounds, that is, in these 90 wounds, 3 x 9 = 27, there were 270 sword strikes.

He wasn't derelict at all; everyone knows this; He was no one but Ali.


  • The [other] virtue of Ali Ibn Abi Talib is being Hazrat Fatima's (SA) husband; send blessings.

He's the one [about whom it’s been said]: If Ali wouldn’t have been created, there would have been no one worthy for Fatima.


  • He's the father of two imams of the time
    that God's Messenger repeated many times, Hassan and Hussain, two gentlemen, are the honorable masters of the youths of paradise.

Everyone has recorded this.

Apart from being an imam according to God’s command, he is also the father of two imams, and all imams are from his generation.


  • His eighth virtue is being the son-in-law of Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (PBUH).

Well, no one in the world, not even our Prophet, has these eight privileges that I just mentioned, except Ali.

Now, can anyone understand Ali's science?

Can anyone understand what Ibn Abi Talib says?

He says I'm acquainted with paths of the sky more than the paths of earth.

At that time, such a person was made to stay at home [not to engage in political activities] by some miserable barefoot [uncivilized] Arabs. Today, all these people

are billions of times more evil than those who made Ali Ibn Abi Talib stay at home. Is there any name or trace of Ali Ibn Abi Talib? While he's taught everything

necessary about humanity.

Before explaining this subject, let me say this sentence quickly

I read this verse of the Qur'an. Send blessings.

Surah Al-Mā'idah verse 8

God sent this verse before His Messenger raised Ali Ibn Abi Talib's hand to say what's going on

Surah Al-Mā'idah verse 8: O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in the way of Allāh. To obey the command, be witnesses in justice.

Don't let these jealous family enmities prevent you (i.e., they said: Ali is gonna take the Prophet's place? No, we don't accept it). Throw away enmity in witnessing.

Be just, not unjust;

Be afraid of God's punishment.

(Look, all these words are based on the Qur'anic verse, this is [from] the Qur'an)

When the Prophet was on Hajjatul wida, there's a place, a watering hole called Ghadir Khumm.

He asked those who had left there to return, those who hadn't come to come. It took 3 days.

It's been narrated that 148,000 or 12,400 people gathered, so that he introduced Ali as his successor.

But the Prophet had insightful eyes; he saw [them as] a bunch of dogs, pigs, and wolves.

Everyone was with the Prophet, visiting Mecca.

The Prophet prolongated it.

The verse was revealed.

Listen up

Surah Al-Mā'idah verse 67: (God says to His Messenger)

O Messenger, announce what has been revealed to you from your Lord; if you do not, then you have not conveyed His message at all.

This word, i.e., the introduction of Ali Ibn Abi Talib, is so important that God says

if you don't do this and don't say, you're not either a prophet, you haven't conveyed.

And God protects you from the torment of a bunch of hypocrites and infidels.

This is a Quranic verse; if you don't accept [even] one verse of it, drop dead, you're a disbeliever, impure and apostate, drop dead.

He says if you do not do this, you have not [completed] your mission.

Now see what God Himself says about Ali.

Send a blessing. (I want the speech not to exceed a CD, so I skip it quickly)

O our Messenger, (God says) I made a covenant with myself about Ali. Listen and convey this to God's creatures

  1. Ali is the flag-bearer of guidance after you.

Ali is the leader of my friends and infallible Imams (AS).

who says? God to His Messenger

Ali's [like] a light for those who obey God's command.

Ali is the word I chose for him.

Whoever loves Ali loves me

and whoever is an enemy to Ali is an enemy to me.

Whoever hates Ali hates me.

Oh Muhammad (PBUH)

Tell this covenant and the virtue of Ali to everyone; I chose, adopted Ali as your caliph and successor.

I chose him for the caliphate.

I granted him my knowledge, understanding, and patience.

Ali is genuinely Amir al-Momineen.

There was no one before him, and no one would be after him.

This is related to his characteristics I mentioned; this is from God Himself.

I chose the name Amir al-Momenin for Ali. No one neither before nor after him dared to give this to themselves.

Ali is the flag-bearer of guidance.

Ali is the Imam and leader of people.

Ali is a gentleman, Ali is Maulah, Ali is everything...

Well, do we oppress more in this era, or did a bunch of Arabs do?

Even though they were relatives, they wouldn't like, for example, their cousin take the place of God's Messenger

On that day, God's Messenger passed away, listen up, wherever the opponents are, listen up; on the day when God's Messenger passed away, Islam was at most 23 years old, and

they were also a bunch of barefoot, illiterate Arabs.

Today Islam is almost 1430 years old, and everyone claims to be literate.
