The 13th of Rajab, one of the holiest dates on the Islamic Calendar alongside Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha, Mawlid al-Nabi and Ashoura, has passed. Imam Ali (A.S.), the brother of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.); the one who is to Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.) like Haroon (A.S.) was to Moussa (A.S.); the Mawla of all Muslims; the Gate to the City Of Knowledge; Asadullah; Al-Haydar; Al-Karrar; the Sole Standard-Bearer of Islam; the one, true Amir al-Mou’mineen is now 1,408 years old. Brightest, sweetest, loveliest and happiest of happy birthdays, o’ Commander of the Faithful (A.S.)!
We could speak of his unique position in all of history as the lone individual – as in, nobody before him and nobody after him – born inside the Kaaba. The crack in the Sublime Black Stone Of Heaven from the burst of light that emitted from his mother Fatima bint Asad (A.S.) upon giving birth to him remains to this day–despite all attempts by the Zio-Imperialist-owned House of Saud to eradicate the history of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) We could speak of his philosophical prowess and unmatched erudition, qualities that gave rise to the Muʿtazilites. At the opposite end of the spectrum, we could speak of his mystifying poetry and intense gnosis – derived directly from knowledge of the Unseen gained from Muhammad al-Moustafa (S.A.W.W.) – that runs through the spiritual DNA of every Sufi tariqah on Earth. We could speak of the principles of his government that laid the groundwork for all human-rights-based political systems in the world today. We could speak of his piety, his humbleness, his courage, his eloquence, his ferocity, his love for the oppressed and his thwarting of the oppressors.
But all of this and more can, should and must be read elsewhere in the scholarly works written by far more capable, qualified and exceptional writers than yours truly. Allamah Baqir Shareef al-Quraishi’s “The Life Of Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib”, Lucknow Luminary Mufti Ja’far Husayn’s “Biography Of Imam Ali Bin Abi Talib” and Lebanese-Christian George Jordac’s masterpiece, “The Voice Of Human Justice”, come to mind immediately. Instead, since our Mission Statement says that our purpose is to “increase Anti-Parasitic awareness in all peoples of the world, Muslims especially”, that’s what we will be tackling today: The unapologetic, colder-than-ice, dazzling and mighty Anti-Parasitism of Imam Ali (A.S.)Continue reading If Imam Ali (A.S.) Were Here Physically For His 1,408th Birthday, SJW “Muslims” Would Call Him An “Anti-Semite”
