Amirul Momineen (Master of the FAithful Believers) – Imam Ali (A.S.) – was martyred on 21st Ramazan 40 A.H. by an assassin who mortally wounded the Holy Imam (A.S.) with a poisoned sword in the Mosque at Kufah during morning prayers on 19th Ramazan 40 A.H.
Imam Ali (A.S.), the First Muslim, an intimate associate of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) in the life and holy Islamic mission, the Immediate Successor to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) and the First Holy Immaculate Imam of the Shi’ites in the World is the only unique personality in the world who was born in the Holy Kaaba and was martyred in the Mosque.
Regarding divine right of Imam Ali (A.S.) the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) declared:
“Whomsoever I have authority over; Ali (A.S.) has also authority over him, O Allah! Befriend whoever befriend him and be hostile to whosoever is hostile to him”.
On this Sorrowful and Sad occasion of the Martyrdom Anniversary of Imam Ali (A.S.) we extend our Heartfelt Condolences to all Muslim Ummah, especially the followers of that holy Imam.
This Occasion also coincides with “The Nights of Divine Decree” (Laylatul-Qadr: 19th, 21st and 23rd nights of the Holy Month of Ramazan) in which the fate of everyone is decided.
We beseech Allah Almighty to grant forgiveness, salvation, deliverance, dignity and prosperity to all the Muslims in the world.
