Sayyiduna Ali’s Devotion to Beloved Rasool

All the blessed companions of our Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم were in deep love with the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. These were those people who for the sake of the Beloved Prophet’s love sacrificed their homes and household goods, wealth, friends, relatives and relations. These were those people who always preferred the pleasure of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم to their own pleasure. These were those people who sacrificed their lives for the sake of Islam and waved the flag of Islam across the world.


Amongst these fortunate people one is leader of the believers, Sayyiduna ‘Ali-ul-Murtada کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ was the cousin of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ spent his childhood and boyhood under the guardianship of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم that’s why being highly impressed by his character, habits and manners he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ had great love and devotion to the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ used to accept wholeheartedly everything that was said by the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. That’s the reason when the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم presented him the invitation to Islam, he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ accepted it and started offering Salah with the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم from his childhood and thus he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ was regarded amongst the first who embraced Islam.


After embracing Islam the relationship of Sayyiduna ‘Ali کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم with the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم became further deeper. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ continued to fulfil every demand of devotion and love in a good manner. We can find many incidents of great love and devotion of Sayyiduna ‘Ali-ul-Murtada رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ with the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم.


بھیک لینے کے لئے دربار میں منگتا ترا        لے کے کشکول آگیا مولٰی علی مُشکِل کُشا

ایک ذرّہ اپنی اُلفت کا عِنایت کر مجھے      اپنا دیوانہ بَنا مولٰی علی مشکل کشا


Sayyiduna Ali’s entire life is full of the faith-refreshing parables of devotion to the Noblest Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم It was Sayyiduna ‘Ali کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم who had the privilege to lie down in the bed of Beloved Prophet after he صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم had gone in the night of migration. Just ponder, if somebody is taking rest at his home at night and receives this news that enemies are outside and want to take his life, so he will lose his sleep, he will not be at peace. However, he knows that there is a very good system of security outside, even then he will not be satisfied. His family members may also become restless and scared. But may I be sacrificed upon Sayyiduna Ali’s un-exemplary courage and perfect passion of love! Despite knowing this that the enemies were taking their position outside and could attack anytime and take any kind of action in irritation if they did not find their required person, Sayyiduna ‘Ali کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم did not care for all these things at all.


As the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم called Sayyiduna ‘Ali کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم and said: I have been commanded by Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ to migrate, therefore, I will set out for Madinah today. You lie in my bed with my green chador on! Hand over all the trusts of Quraysh which they have entrusted with me to them and then come to Madinah. Sayyiduna ‘Ali کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم started handing over the trusts of people to their owners and stayed in Makkah for three days. Having handed over the trusts he رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ went to Madinah and reached blessed Quba. The Prophet of Rahmah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was present in the house of Sayyidatuna Kulsoom Bin Hidm رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ also stayed there.


(Asad-ul-Ghaabah, vol. 4, pp. 104; Ar-Riyad-un-Nadarah, vol. 2, pp. 113)


Sayyiduna ‘Ali کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم loved the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم a lot. The love of Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was so much in him that nothing was more beloved to him than the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ loved the Noblest Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم more than his life and wealth, parents and children. He رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ himself has stated:


کَانَ وَاللہِ اَحَبَّ اِلَیْنَا مِنْ اَمْوَالِنَا وَ اَوْلَادِنَا وَ اَبَائِنَا وَ اُمَّھَاتِنَا وَمِنَ الْمَاءِ الْبَارِدِ عَلَی الظَّمَاءِ

By Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! The Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is more beloved to us than our wealth, our children, our father, our mother and the cold water at the time of intense thirst.


(Ash-Shifa, pp. 22)


His outstanding devotion to Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم can be judged by this incident of Hudaybiyah Treaty that when the Prophet of Rahmah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم commanded Sayyiduna ‘Ali کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم to write the treaty. After getting him to write the conditions of the treaty, the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said: Write ‘ھَذَا مَا قَا ضٰی عَلَیْہِ مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوْلُ اﷲِ’ i.e. these are the conditions upon which Muhammad صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم - the Prophet of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ decided to make reconciliation with Quraysh.


Having heard this, one of the polytheists namely, Suhayl Bin ‘Amr said: If we had accepted you as the Rasool of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ we would not have stopped you from Baytullah, nor would we have fought a battle, therefore, instead of writing ‘مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوْلُ اﷲِ’ write ‘مُحَمَّد بِنۡ عَبۡدُ اﷲ’. The Prophet of Rahmah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said: I am Muhammad Bin ‘Abdullah and also ‘مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوْلُ اﷲِ’. He صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم then commanded Sayyiduna ‘Ali-ul-Murtada کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم: Erase the word ‘مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوْلُ اﷲِ’ and write ‘مُحَمَّد بِنۡ عَبۡدُ اﷲ’ in place of it. Sayyiduna ‘Ali-ul-Murtada کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم humbly said: Ya Rasoolallah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم! I cannot erase your blessed name, so the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم took that treaty and wrote himself ‘مُحَمَّد بِنۡ عَبۡدُ اﷲ’ on it after erasing the word ‘رَسُوْلُ اﷲ’ .

(Sahih Bukhari, vol. 2, pp. 212, Hadees 2599)


On the occasion of Battle of Khayber, the Prophet of Rahmah, the Intercessor of Ummah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said: ‘لَاُعْطِیَنَّ الرَّایَۃَ غَدًا رَجُلًا’ i.e. Tomorrow I will give a flag to the man ‘یُحِبُّہٗ اللہُ وَرَسُوْلُہٗ وَ یُحِبُّ اللہَ وَرَسُوْلَہٗ’ who Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and His Rasool love and he also loves Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and His Rasool. Next day, the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم then gave Sayyiduna ‘Ali کَـرَّمَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی وَجۡـھَـهُ الۡـکَـرِیۡم a flag.

(Sahih Bukhari, vol. 2, pp. 535, Hadees 3702)


اٰمِيۡن بِجَاهِ النَّبِيِّ الۡاَمِيۡن صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيۡهِ وَاٰلِه وَسَلَّم

صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب       صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد
