Hazrat Ali Murtaza (R.A)

Hazrat Ali Murtaza (R.A) was the Fourth Caliph.

His name was Ali Abul Hasan and his titles include “Haidar" (Lion) and “Baabul I'lm” (Gate of Knowledge).

He was born in the Holy City of Mecca about 30 years after the Prophet (S.A.W).

His blessed birth took place inside the Holy Kaaba.

He was the cousin brother of the Prophet (S.A.W), and was the first child to embrace Islam at the age of 10.

Hazrat Ali (R.A)’s character is a perfect role model for Muslims today. Some of his qualities include Honesty, Piety, Justice and Love of Truth. Hazrat Ali (R.A) also possessed extraordinary knowledge and wisdom.

Although Hazrat Ali (R.A) was poor, he had a very generous heart. Nobody returned empty handed from his door.

Hazrat Ali (R.A) took part in many battles and fought very bravely in all the battles he took part in, thus being blessed with the title of “Asaadullah” (Lion of Allah).

Hazrat Ali (R.A) became the Son in Law of the Prophet (S.A.W) by marrying His (S.A.W)’s youngest daughter Sayyidah Bibi Fatima (R.A).

At the age of 63, Hazrat Ali (R.A) was martyred whilst going to the Masjid. He (R.A) is buried in the city of Najaf (Iraq).
