Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib as was born in the city of Mecca al-Mukarramah on the 13th Rajab, the 30th year after the year of the elephant, or around 600 AD. In the Shi’ah view, he was the caliph directly after the Messenger of Allah Muhammad SAAW died on the basis of the word of Allah Ta’ala and the confirmation of the Messenger of Allah.
There are many verses of the Qur’an that describe the immorality and purity of all kinds of defilements and defamation. Based on Shia sources and some Ahlusunnah sources, there are approximately 300 verses that were revealed regarding their importance. When the Quraysh tribe wanted to kill the Prophet Muhammad, he was willing to sleep in the bed of the Messenger of Allah to fool the enemy so that the Messenger of Allah could secretly make the move.  The Messenger of Allah binds the Promise of Brotherhood (Akad Ukhuwwah) with him (al-Hakim Naisyaburi, vol. 3, p. 14). He participated in all the wars of the Prophet Muhammad, except for the battle of Tabuk, that was on the orders of the Prophet PBUH to stay in Medina. Therefore, Imam Ali is the commander of Islam who has the most virtue and honor.
The first person to convert to Islam
Imam Ali (as) was the first man to believe in the Prophet PBUH. In accordance with some Shia history, the Prophet PBUH introduced Imam Ali as the first Muslim, the first believer and the first person to believe the Prophet PBUH. Syeikh Thusi quoted a narration from Imam Ridha who introduced Imam Ali as the first believer. to the Prophet of Islam.  Allamah Majlisi mentions the order of those who believe in the Prophet as follows: first Imam Ali, then Khadijah sa and then Jakfar bin Abi Talib.
According to some researchers, ijma Shia said that Imam Ali was the first man to convert to Islam. In addition, some Ahlusunnah historians such as Tabari, Dzahabi, and others also quoted a number of indications that show that Imam Ali was the first person to convert to Islam. At that time Imam Ali as – in the opinion of the famous – was 10 years old. However, in some literature, it is mentioned that Imam Ali was a believer at the age of 12 because he was 64 when he met his martyrdom.
Noble Morals from the Supreme Personality Imam Ali bin Abi Talib as
Ibn Abil Hadid said, “He lived in extraordinary generosity and very modest circumstances. When he fasted, he gave his breaking fast food to orphans so that the verse,” And they gave food that he liked to the poor, orphans, and Mufasir said one time Ali as only had 4 dirhams and then he offered 1 Dirham at night, 1 other Dirham at noon, 1 Dirham with secret, and 1 Dirham again he offered openly.
Therefore it was a verse, “Those who give up their wealth at night and day in secret and openly, then they get a reward in the sight of his Lord. There is no concern for them and they are not sad. “(Surat al-Baqarah : 274) came down in connection with this event. They said: Imam Ali irrigated the dates of the Jews of Madina until his hands were hard and his reward was dedicated and he himself propped his stomach with stones, they said: “Never once said no to someone who needed help.” One day, Mahfan bin Abi Mahfan went to Muawiyah. Muawiyah asked him, “Where are you from?” He intended to make Muawiyah happy. said, I have just come from the most stingy among all people. The point is Imam Ali. Woe to you! How is it possible for someone who if he has a storehouse of gold and straw he will use it to help the poor! ”
“Ali is a universal soul who has echoed the humming of eternity on the horizon of the Arabian Peninsula. But because his figure was greater than his time, the people at that time did not know who he was and could not digest his words … Ali had left the world, while the world watched its majesty. ” (Kahlil Ghibran, Poet)
Easy to Forgive and Tolerate
Ibn Abil Hadid said: “Imam Ali (as) has patience, is easy to forgive, is generous and ignores others who do no good to him, this is what happened in the Jamal war which is evidence of this. When Marwan bin Hakam was the enemy who was most obviously captured, the Imam released him and from this event had a tremendous effect. Abdullah bin Zubair uttered a vile word to Imam Ali in front of the public and when Abdullah with the Aisha army came to Basrah to read the sermon and Abdullah in the sermon said everything he wanted he said even by saying that now the least and the least despicable of men, namely Ali, will come to your city, but Imam Ali forgave him and the Imam only said, “Stay away from here so that I will not see you!” to Said bin Ash who was his enemy and after the Jamal war, he was captured in Mecca but it doesn’t matter.
Imam Ali’s treatment of Aisha was very well known. Although the Imam won, the Imam congratulated him. The Imam also ordered 20 women from the Qais Century tribe who all wore men’s clothes with sword gear to accompany Aisha to return to Medina even though during her journey Aisha continued to say abominable words to Imam Ali by saying that Imam Ali was undermining his honor and he sent a boy from his best friend to accompany his journey. After the entourage arrived in Medina, the woman said: “Look, we are all women who have been with you!”
After the war was over, the Basrah people who stood in Aisha’s ranks and part of her captive forces were all released and the Imam told his troops that no one should oppose this decision. They were declared free with the record they put down their weapons. Imam Ali did not make them prisoners of war, nor did they take their property as spoils of war as the Prophet Muhammad treated the people of Mecca in the Fathu Mecca incident.
Muawiyah forces in the Shiffin war closed the water for Imam Ali’s troops and troops. They made a barrier in the river Furat. The leader of the Muawiyah army said: “Ali and his army must feel a very thirst, as he killed Usman in thirst.” Then the two forces fought and Imam Ali’s forces succeeded in capturing the water. On that occasion, Imam Ali’s forces also forbade Muawiya’s troops to drink even a drop of water so that everyone would die of thirst, but Imam Ali said, “No, forever don’t do this, let them use some Furat water.”
Ibn Abil Hadid said, “As for the good side of temperament, he has become a saying as his enemies disgrace him. Sha’sha’ah bin Suhan and loyal friend of Imam Ali said,” Ali as among us is like one of us, does not judge the privilege of himself even tawadhu and humble so scared that we in front of him like prisoners with feet shackled under a man who was unsheathed his sword. ”
Jihad fi Sabilillah
Ibn Abil Hadid said: Friends and opponents of Imam Ali stated that he was a mujahid leader and that no one was worthy of this title. Everyone knows that the most fierce and fierce war in Islam is the Badr war when 70 infidels were killed. Half of that number was killed at the hands of Imam Ali and the other half was killed at the hands of the Muslims at the help of angels. The position and role of Imam Ali in the battles of Uhud, Ahzab, Khaibar, Hunain, and other wars have been recognized by history and need not be explained. Imam Ali is also good at understanding important issues such as the geography of Mecca, Egypt, and others.
Ibn Abil Hadid said, “He is the only champion who will always be remembered who erases the memories of the previous people and eliminates himself afterward.” Ali’s success in the battlefield was very well known in history so that even the Day of Judgment would always be an example. Knights who never fled from the battlefield and were not afraid of a large number of enemies. He does not fight unless he destroys his enemy and he is a person whose punch is so powerful that he never repeats the blow. When challenging Muawiyah to a duel so that one of the two died, people were confident and confident. Amr bin Ash to Muawiyah said: “Ali is no match for you. Muawiyah said to Amr bin Ash: Since you were with me, you have never once been cunning to me! You told me to fight someone who will never release another person from his clutches! I am very sure that after me, you are very enamored with the government of Sham. The Arabs are always proud if one day confronted him or my accomplice was killed by Ali as. “One day, Muawiyah was fast asleep on his throne, suddenly his eyes opened. He saw Abdullah bin Zubair nearby. He sat on nearby and jokingly said to Muawiyah: “O Amir al-mu’minin! If you agree, let’s wrestle wrestling. “Muawiyah said:” Woe to you Abdullah! I see you talking about someone who is brave and tough! Abdullah said: Do you deny my courage? I am someone who fought Ali on the battlefield. “Muawiyah said: ‘This is not the case at all. If you briefly stand before Ali then you and your father will be killed with his left hand while his right hand will remain ready to fight.”
Ibn Abil Hadid said, “Ali (as) is the most devout abid (devotee). Fasting and praying are the most of the others. People learn from him in performing night prayers and continuing to do sunnah prayers. And how do you judge one person? the man who guarded his sunnah prayers up to the Shiffin War on Laylatul Harir (the last night of the Shiffin War) between two lines, a prayer mat was held for him even though an arrow crossed between his hands and between his two ears without fear he keeps busy continuing his prayers, his forehead is like a camel’s knees because of the many prostrations, every time a person who listens to his prayers and prayers will realize how glorified he is to Allah, his simplicity before his greatness, his prostration before God and sincerity in him. where these prayers come from and through what word he flows.
Ali (as) was the leader of the people who ascended. Who will take this path, then he must follow the path of Imam Ali. Ali never once filled his stomach. Ali as consuming food and dressed roughly. Abdullah bin Abi Rafi ‘said, “I met Imam Ali on the feast. I saw him having a sealed bag. When I opened the cloth, I saw the rough bread that was untouched. He was eating the food. I said, “O Amir al-mu’minin! Why did you seal it? Imam Ali said, “I am afraid my children will smear it with butter or with olive oil.” The clothes he wore sometimes came from animal skins and sometimes from palm leaves. The footwear is made from palm fronds. And wearing clothes made from very rough. If you want to eat something other than bread then the side dishes are vinegar and salt. And if it’s better than this then some of it is mixed with plants or camel milk. He did not eat meat except a little and said, “Do not make your stomach like an animal storehouse.”
However, he was the most powerful person and the hunger he had did not reduce his strength in the slightest. He left the life of the world even though his wealth stretched throughout the Islamic world except for Sham he even shared his wealth with his people.
