Imam Ali (a) buried in Afghanistan?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Salam Alaykum,

Recently I read that many Muslims firmly believe that Imam Ali's (a) remains were moved to Afghanistan and buried in the "Blue Mosque"  --> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrine_of_Ali

Most Muslims believe he is buried in Najaf, Imam Ali shrine though.

With arguments like these coming into place, how do we know for certain that Imam Ali (a) is actually buried in Najaf?

In the era of Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (a) when the Umayyads were being ousted from the caliphate, there was no longer a reason for the grave of Imam Ali (a) to remain hidden. Due to this, gradually, the location of his grave became known and exposed to everyone. It has been narrated that Safwan sought permission from Imam al-Sadiq (a) to tell the Shias of Kufa where the burial place of Imam Ali (a) was. The Imam (a) responded in the affirmative and also gave some money for the reparations and reconstruction of the grave.

Of the twelve Shia Imams, for six of them there is reports of visitation of the grave of Imam Ali (a) in Najaf: Imam al-Husayn (a), Imam Ali b. al-Husayn al-Sajjad (a), Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a), Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (a), Imam Ali al-Hadi (a), and Imam Hasan al-Askari (a).[3]

The sayings and actions of Imams are hujjah upon us instead of rumors spread-ed by fake media posts.

If Master Ali (May Allah Be Pleased with Him) is Buried in Afghanistan, I Would be in Heaven.

APPERANCE OF THE GRAVE OF AMEERUL MOMENEEN (A) DURING THE TIME OF HAROON

Sayyid ‘Abd al-Karim ibn Tawus has reported the following story on the authority of Muhammad ibn ‘Ali al-Shaybani:

I was a child when, one day in the year 260 (AH), my father, uncle, and I went out secretly directing to al-Ghari for visiting the tomb of Amir al-Mu’minin (‘a). At that time, the tomb was not constructed but surrounded by black stones. At the time that we were reciting Qur’an, offering prayers, and reciting the Ziyarah form, a lion came in the direction of us. When he approached us, we moved back. The lion came to the tomb and passed its wounded foreleg over it. Fear vanished when we were told about this scene; therefore, we all approached to see the lion, which kept on doing so for a while and then left. We then returned to the tomb.

Shaykh al-Mufid also related the following story:

One day, Harun, the ‘Abbasid ruler, went out for hunting. As he approached al-Ghari neighborhood, he saw a group of antelopes .....

Salam it’s true but it was secretly addressed by Imam Sadiq (as) to Shias but during time of Harun it became public.
