A tribute to Martyrdom of Hazrat Ali

Muslims worldwide still wants answers on Shahdat of Hazrat Ali....who was targeted by a muslim, when Ali was praying (namaz). It was first cold blood murder (martyrdom) of a namazi when he was praying in history of Islam.

....and still there are some terrorists who call themselves Muslims (Islamists) and killing namazi in Masques (masjids). Ibn-e- muljeem teri jud pe lanat be shumar.

Here is a poetry (nauha) which is a tribute to Hazrat Ali....

Recited by Ali Safdar. Written by Maualana Syed Hassan Zafar and Translated by Maulana Hayder Shirazi

On the 19th of Ramadan month (Mah-e-Ramadan) of the year 40 A.H, Holy Imam Ali (A.S) came to the mosque in Kufa for his morning prayers. Holy Imam Ali (A.S) gave the call for prayer (Azaan) and became engaged in leading the congregation. Abdul-Rahman ibn Muljam (Lanatullah) pretending to pray, stood just behind Holy Imam Ali (A.S), and when Holy Imam Ali (A.S) was in a state of prostration, Abdul-Rahman ibn Muljam (Lanatullah) dealt a heavy stroke with his sword, inflicting a deep wound on Holy Imam Ali (A.S) head.

The Holy Prophet Hazrat Rehmatulil Alamin Muhammad Mustafa (PBUH) had prophesied the assassination of Holy Imam Ali (A.S) and his issues. Regarding Holy Imam Ali (A.S) He (PBUH) had Said, "O Ali (A.S)! I see before my eyes thy beard dyed with the blood of thy forehead."
They assassinated Holy Imam Ali (A.S) at his finest time - the hour of standing before Allah, the Exalted, during a prayer of submission, in the best of days, while fasting during the month of Ramadan (Mah-e-Ramadan); during the most glorious Islamic duties, while preparing to wage jihad, and in the highest and most pure divine places, the Mosque of Kufa.
May joy be to Amirul Momineen Moula-e-Kaenat Holy Imam Ali (A.S) and a blessed afterlife!
The crime of assassinating Holy Imam Ali (A.S) remains one of the most cruel, brutal and hideous, because it was not committed against one man, but against the whole rational Islamic leadership.
By assassinating Holy Imam Ali (A.S), they actually aimed at assassinating the message, the history, the culture and the nation of Muslims embodied in the person of Holy Imam Ali (A.S). In doing so, the Islamic nation lost its guide of progress, and at the most wondrous opportunity in its life after the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

Holy Imam Ali (A.S) suffered from his wound for three days, and He (A.S) passed away on 21st of the month of Ramadan (Mah-e-Ramazan) at an age of 63 years.
During these three days, He (A.S) entrusted his Son, Second Holy Imam Hassan (A.S) with the Imamate of guiding the nation ideologically and socially. During those three days, as during all his life, he never ceased remembering Allah, praising Him, and accepting Him and His ordinance.
Likewise, he continued giving pieces of advice and directions leading to good, pointing to the right, defining the way to guidance, explaining the course for deliverance, calling for the observance of Allah’s ordinances, and warning against following one’s ill desires and set-backs from not carrying out the divine message.
Such was the heroic end of this great man! The loss to the Mission and the nation was the gravest after the loss of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
By the death of Holy Imam Ali (A.S) the nation lost:
A heroism that had become the song of the time;
A courageous history that has never dreamt of its like;
A wisdom no one can fathom, save Allah;
A purity, the like of which was only in the prophets;
An abstinence from the pleasures of life that could be attained only by the nearest to Allah;
An eloquence such as to be the echo of Book; and
A jurisprudence, and a thorough knowledge of the laws of religion, that made him the "gateway of the city" of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) knowledge, and the authority to whom the Islamic nation referred in all its affairs.
Peace be upon Amirul-Mumeneen (A.S) the day he was born, the day he was martyred on his altar, and the day he shall be raised alive.
