Imam Ali was oppressed more than anyone

Everyone thinks he was just really strong, no one could get in his way.. etc.

But you don't know what truly happened in his life

I wonder how Imam Ali (a) felt during his last days... he suffered more than anyone did.

First, he was protecting the prophet (s) in everything. He was winning all of the battles, being praised so much in the Quran, and the holy prophet (s) kept on bragging about Imam Ali (a) to the companions. Ali (a) and the prophet (s) were the best of friends, so much that the prophet (s) would call Ali (a) his brother. Ali (a) was always smiling :). The companions kept congratulating him. They were happy for him.

He who roamed the streets during the night time, giving his earnings and belongings to the orphans sleeping on the streets. He fed them with a mask on, hoping no one would find out of his generous deed. Little did he know, the All mighty Lord exposed him in the Qur'an!

Then, when the prophet (s) passed away, his rights were taken and no one stood up for him, even though just a few months ago they were all praising him.

His Fatima (s) was taken from him. He had a son arriving along the way (Mohsin), but he too returned to his Lord, with his mother Fatima (s).

Then, he finally got his rights; he became the caliph. No Muslim obeyed him.

The wife of the Prophet (s), A'isha declared war on him, and started the first Muslim fitna, wishing to destroy Ali's rank. But little did she know, Ali was dubbed Master of the Muslims by no other than Allah, the Supreme.

They thought that as his age grew, his might and bravery would vanish, and how wrong were they. He was Lion of Allah, and he remained Lion of Allah, even in his sixties.

Ali ended this, and he forgave her. Unlike how they treated him, Imam still respected her position as wife of the prophet... but she wanted him dead.

He who dressed like the slaves, like the poor class, even though he was the highest in power; why was no one listening to him?

He who does not eat anymore than dry bread and water,

He who fought for the oppressed.. he helped anyone, he did not even look at the "social status".

Then, another Muslim; Mu'awiyah starts a war on him, for what reason?

His army branches off and blames him for no solid reason, he has now lost a fraction of his men.

His own previous men become the Khawarij and warred against him. Why? Was he not the caliph? Were they not supposed to obey him? Indeed, they took advantage of his mercy..

No caliph before him had to war with fellow Muslims. Why was it that the only Muslim that was praised by everyone was hated the most during his time?

There was a point where Imam Ali (a) punched the ground, saying that he has so much to offer to the people but no one will take from him, but the ground understands him.

He then went to the mosque to pray, watching as some ducks were pulling his ab'aa (dress), urging him not to enter the mosque; they were crying for his fate, they too knew.

Imam entered the mosque, recited the adhan.

Ibn Muljam was sleeping on his stomach, with his poisonous sword visible under his cloak.

Imam seen it and didn't comment. "Get up, O Abdul Rahman Ibn Muljam. It is time for salah. Do not sleep on your stomach, for verily that is the sleep of shaytaan."

The holy imam began his prayer. He got into his final sujood, and uttered his dhikr. As he was raising his head back up, the death-dealing, toxic sword of Ibn Muljam struck his forehead, on the exact spot 'Amr struck him during his youth.

The poison was already swimming in the imam's blood.

"I have succeeded, by the lord of the Ka'aba," says the Islamic hero, as his sons al-Hasan and al-Husayn rush to save him.

Enough of this world you have already endured, O Ali. The people have betrayed you, O Ali, and the ones who loved you were deceiving.

Return to your lord, O Amir Al Mu'mineen.

Whenever you are being oppressed, or being treated unjustly, remember him! He was treated unjustly by everyone! Make it your mission to achieve jannah (heaven/parafise)!! Imam Ali (a) tells us his true shia will be his neighbors in paradise!

He wasn't oppressed more than anyone. He certainly was oppressed, and his struggle has been extremely romanticized by Shia. But he definitely wasn't more oppressed than anyone in the history of the world.

Well you are certainly right on that.

The human that was oppressed the most in all of mankind was Muhammad ibn 'Abdullah (s), as he himself says, "No one has suffered or tortured as much as I have before me"
