Hazrat Ali Murtaza (AS) 's piety

By: Khatar Nurizadeh

When Ali (AS) offered his prayers he was frequently observed to be in a strange physical condition. When asked to account for the pallor of his face and the way in which his body trembled he (AS) replied, "I present myself to the Almighty to render an account of the various obligations that devolve on me and I do not know whether I have discharged them dutifully by protecting the defenseless and aiding the oppressed."

His humility before God was one of the reasons why he (AS) was regarded as a saint of saints. Another factor, which made him exceptionally pious, was the important part, which he assigned to prayer in his daily life.

One day when the Holy Prophet (SAWW) was sleeping with his head in Ali (AS) 's lap, the time of "Asr" (afternoon prayers) had passed. Informed by Divine revelation that he had caused Ali (AS) to miss his prayers, the Holy Prophet (SAWW) said, "Verily, Ali (AS) was busy in the service of God and His Apostle. O Lord! Command Thy sun not to set yet and to come back into the world again so as to enable Ali (AS) to perform his prayers." The Sun re-appeared forthwith until Ali (AS) had finished his prayers.

In one of his many battles Ali (AS) is said to have been pierced by the head of an arrow, which could not be extracted and which caused him great pain for many months. One day, he was holding communion with God, he went into a state of reverie and on emerging from this trance he found that the head of the arrow had come out of its own accord, through the intercession of Divine Favors.

Because Ali (AS) was considered to be the most pious and most holy of all the believers in faith, the people also began to feel that God must have rewarded him by granting him the power to perform miracles. Tales abound of miraculous happenings. A withered tree grew again at Ali (AS) 's touch; pebbles turned into pieces of gold at his command, so that a believer in faith could find money to pay back a Jewish usurer; Ali (AS) was gifted with divine qualities.


Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."
