Hazrat Ali (A.S) was the first person to embrace Islam and is the closest relative to Holy Prophet (saw) throughout his life and his best companion throughout the mission of Islam. Hazrat Ali (A.S) was born inside the Holy Kaaba at Makkah and being the only personality born inside the Holy Kaaba. He was martyred in the Kufah Mosque and is buried in the Holy city of Najaf-e-Ashraf Iraq. Regarding an obscure right of Hazrat Ali (A.S) Holy Prophet (saw) stated that: “Whomsoever I have authority over; Ali has also authority over him, O Allah! Befriend whoever befriend him and be hostile to whosoever is hostile to him.” A Precious example from his virtues of life is as follows: Once it happened that there were three people who won 17 camels as maal-e-ghanimat and they were to share with each of them with a specific ratio in the alive form.
The ratio was one of them to be given 1/3 of the total share. The second was to be given ½ of the total and third person was to be given 1/9 of the total number of camels and alive. That was quite impossible as it looks to share that many camels in that specific ratio equally alive, and that’s what exactly happened with three of them. Hence, they decided to come to Hazrat Ali and would request justice from him. So they came to Hazrat Ali and told him the whole scenario. Hazrat Ali looked into the scenario patiently and then asked them to tie his own camel with 17 of theirs, which sum up to a total of 18 camels to share among them. And then he asked the first person who was to be given the share of 1/3 of the total. The total given to him was six camels alive as a result of 18X1/3. Then he asked for the second person whose share was ½ off the total which resulted in the total of nine camels as a result of 18X118X1/ .
Similarly, the third one was asked to step forward to take his share that was a total of two camels as a result of his share ratio, i.e. 18X1/9. So the total number of camels shared among them was 17 in the following number 2+9+6. And he then he requested his camel back to him. Hence, each of them got satisfied with Hazrat Ali’s Justice and left to their places happily.
It is said about Hazrat Ali (salawat) that He was the foundation of Islamic teachings. His sayings are the real reflection of Quran verses. He is regarded one of the brilliant torch bearers of real Islamic values. His sayings are full of witty remarks that require almost 100 to 500 pages for explanation. He was the person who explained all knowledge of this universe. He has mentioned the formula of electric power producing with power of falling water mention in book (Najula balagha). If we read western literature, many of saying of great writers like shakerpeare and john Milton are what hazrat Ali had already said fourteen hundred years ago. So you can guess, western people know the real spirit of Hazrat Ali and why do not we as Muslims still do know! Think over it!
