  1. It is widely documented that the killer of Ali b. Abi Talib (a.s.) – Abdul Rahman b. Muljam is the most wretched of all mankind. However, some Muslims find no fault with him and believe he was a great worshipper. Reply The following tradition clearly establishes that Ibn Muljam was the most accursed of all people: It is narrated from Jabir b. Samurah that he said: The Prophet (s.a.w.a.) informed Ali (a.s.): Who is the most wretched of all from the first and the last? Ameerul Momineen Ali (a.s.) replied: Allah and His Messenger know better. The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said: Your killer, O Ali. Musnad-e-Ahmed vol. 1 p. 130 – Imam Ahmed b. Hanbal is among the four Imams of Sunni schools. The Hanbali sect, which he founded, is the preferred school of jurisprudence for the Salafis Khasaais-o-Aale Abi Talib (a.s.) by Imam Nesaai p. 39 – Imam Nesaai’s Sunan is among the six reliable books of the Ahle Sunnah called as the Sihaah-e-Sittah. His book Khasaais is dedicated to the virtues of Ameerul Momineen Ali b. Abi Talib (a.s.) due to which he was killed by supporters of Muawiyah in Syria Al-Manaaqib of Ibn Maghaazeli p. 204 After such a clear tradition backed by first-rate references, Ibn Muljam still finds supporters among the Muslims. Sample this – Ibne Taymiyyah (the so-called Shaikh al-Islam) has this to say about Kharijis of which Ibn Muljim was a member: ‘…they (Kharijis) are not of those who lie purposely, they are known as truthful ones, it has even been said that their traditions (hadith) are amongst the most reliable traditions.’ Minhaaj al-Sunnah, vol. 1 p. 68 He further stated: ‘His killer (i.e. the killer of Imam Ali) was one of them (the Khawaarij). He was Ibn Muljam…. He was one of the best of Allah’s slaves.’ Minhaaj al-Sunnah vol. 5 p. 47 When the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) has disgraced Ibn Muljam despite his worship and devotion as the most wretched of Allah’s creatures, what right does Ibne Taymiyyah or his ilk have to refer to him as among the best of Allah’s worshippers? Do we refer to Iblis as the best of Allah’s worshippers enjoying the rank of angels or as the accursed rebel? Also, by branding Ibn Muljam as the most wretched of Allah’s creatures, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) has underlined the superiority of Ameerul Momineen Ali b. Abi Talib (a.s.) over others. There is no tradition that says Umar b. Khattab’s killer is the worst of mankind or Usman’s murderers are Allah’s most wretched creatures. Also Ibn Muljam is accursed and cursing him is permissible. No one says that one cannot curse him since cursing is prohibited in Islam. Or no one says that one cannot curse him since it’s possible that he sought forgiveness at the time of death. But these arguments are used to defend the wretched Yazid b. Muawiyah (may Allah curse him). This is only because he was the caliph. Like Ibn Muljam, Yazid is also accursed and wretched, but some Muslims prefer to cast him in a positive light to safeguard the honour of the caliphs and Bani Umayyah who put him in that position.
  2. THE FINAL WORDS OF HAZRAT ALI (as) “I was perplexed and bewildered; my patience was over; it was as if my soul was exiting my body; I left immediately, and did not realize how I got to Daar al-Hukumah (governor’s seat). Can I see him one more time? He is my sole existence. If, God forbid, something happens….I cannot even think about it…” A huge crowd had gathered outside Dar al-Hukumah asking for punishment of “Ibn Muljam”. The door opened and Imam Hassan (PBUH) came out. Everyone kept quiet. He said,” O people! My father has ordered you to return to your homes(1), and asked me to leave his killer until my father passes away; if he passes away, the sentence of his killer is clear, and if he remains alive, he will decide about the man. So go back; May Allah (SWT) have mercy on you”. The people went back, but Asbagh ibn Nubatah, who was a companion of Amir al-Mu’minin (PBUH), could not leave. The voice of crying and lamentation raised from the house, so Asbagh started crying as well. Imam Hassan (PBUH) got out again and said,” O Asbagh! Did you not hear my words which were my father’s order?” Asbagh says, ”I said to him, ‘I did. But now that I see my master in this condition, I want to visit him once more and hear a narration from him”. Imam Hassan (PBUH) went inside, and soon after, he came out and said,” Come in”. So I entered to my master, Amir al-Mu’minin (PBUH). The Imam (pbuh) had covered his head with a yellow cloth, but his face was more yellow than the cloth. He was bending his legs and extending them continuously due to the pain of the strike on his head and the effect the poison that had spread all over his body. I threw myself over him, kissed him, and started crying. He said to me, ”O Asbagh! Don’t cry. I swear to Allah (SWT) that I will go to Paradise.” I said, ”May I be sacrificed for you! I swear to Allah (SWT) that I know you will go to Paradise. My crying is because I will be departed from you”. Then I said to him,” O Amir al-Mu’minin! May I be sacrificed for you! Could you narrate one of the Hadiths you have heard from the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP)”(2)? He replied, ”Sit; I do not think you will hear a Hadith from me anymore”. Then he continued by saying,” Know, O Asbagh, that I went to visit the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP) as you have come to visit me. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP) said to me,” O Abal Hassan! Call upon the people; go on top of my platform and stand one step lower than where I used to stand, and tell the people, ‘Beware! Whoever hurts his parents is away from the mercy of Allah (SWT). Beware! Whoever escapes from his parents is away from the mercy of Allah (SWT). Beware! Whoever fails to pay someone who has worked for him is away from the mercy of Allah (SWT).’ O Asbagh! I did exactly as my love had told me. So someone at the end of the mosque got up and said, ‘O Abal Hassan! You said three sentences, but they were brief. So explain them for us’. I did not respond to him until I went to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP) and repeated what the man had said to him”. At this point, Amir al-Mu’minin (PBUH) took my hand and said, ”O Asbagh! Open your hands!” I opened my hands. Then he took one of my fingers and said, “O Asbagh! the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP) took one of my fingers exactly as I am holding yours, and said, ‘O Abal Hassan! You and I are the two fathers of this nation. May he who hurts us be away from the mercy of Allah (SWT)! You and I are the two guardians of this nation. May he who escapes from us be away from the mercy of Allah (SWT)! You and I are the two persons responsible for serving this nation. Whoever does not pay our reward is away from the mercy of Allah (SWT).” These were the last statements Asbagh heard from the lips of Amir al-Mu’minin (PBUH). After that, he did not hear anything from his kind father until the seed of orphanhood was spread among the nation of Islam, and the father of the nation after the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP) joined him in the Hereafter… Indeed our kind father went to his Lord as such… Footnotes: 1. Amaali of Shaykh Mufid, p. 351. 2. Amaali of Shaykh Mufid, p. 352. 3. This Hadith has been narrated with similar wordings in Amaali of Shaykh Mufid (pp. 351-353), which was used in the above mentioned passage.
  3. On the day that Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) passed away.... Osaid b. Safwaan, the companion of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) narrates, "On the day that Ameerul Momineen ( a.s .) passed away there was intense wailing and grief among the people (of Kufa). It was just like the day when the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.a.) passed away. Then a man came wailing and reciting 'Inna lillahe wa inna ilaihe rajeoon' and saying, 'Today the caliphate of the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.a.) has been severed' until he reached the house of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.). Then he said, 'May Allah have mercy on you, O Abul Hasan. You were the foremost among the people in Islam, the most sincere among them in faith, the most intense among them in certainty, the most fearful among them with relation to Allah, the Almighty, the greatest in suffering difficulties, the closest in proximity to the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.), the most trustworthy among the companions, the most superior among them in merits, the most noble among them in precedence, the most elevated among them in ranks, the most proximate to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.), the most similar among them (to the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.)) in ethics, character and action, the most gracious among them in grades, the most noble among them in front of Allah. May Allah grant you a great reward concerning (your efforts towards) Islam, the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.) and the Muslims. Your remained firm when the companions showed feebleness and were evident when they were receding. Your rose (against the enemy) when they displayed laziness. You stayed your ground in the path of the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w .) while others were sluggish and restrained. You were the rightful caliph (of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.)). You remained unaffected and unflappable concerning the irreligiousness of the hypocrites, the wrath of the infidels, the disgust of the envious and the hostility of the transgressors. You rose when others were gripped by lethargy, you spoke (against evil) when others were struck dumb. You tread the path of Allah's Light when others had their feet stuck to the earth. If they had followed you, they would have been guided. You were the most soft spoken among the people, the most distinguished among them (in stature), the most sparing among them in words, the most appropriate among them in speech, the most prolific among them in opinion, the bravest in spirit, the firmest in certainty, the best in actions and the most cognizant in affairs. By Allah! You were, for religion, a leader; first when the people scattered and then when they turned lazy and idle. You were, for the believers, a merciful father. Since they were your family, you lifted the burden off their shoulders that they found too oppressive and burdensome to carry. You protected what they squandered, you safeguarded them when they were left isolated, when they united you supported them, when they were blissful you accepted them and when they offended you, you remained patient. You attained your objective, while they wandered away from it. Through you, they attained what they had not even imagined. You were, for the infidels, an evident chastisement and for the believers a downpour of abundance and mercy. By Allah! You were bestowed with bounties and you gained precedence and acquired the merits. Your proofs were never exhausted, your heart never deviated, your vision never weakened, you never cowed down due to fear and you never betrayed the trust. You were like the mountain that powerful winds could not move nor violent storms could unsettle. You were like the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) said – weak in your body but firm in Allah's affair, humble in person, esteemed in front of Allah, the Almighty, illustrious in the land, majestic in front of the believers. There was not even a trace of defect in you, nor did a blemish ever cast its shadow on you nor did greed and craving ever contaminate your person. The poor and humiliated were strong and powerful in front you, until you reinstated their rights. The powerful and strong were poor and humiliated in front you until you seized the unlawful property from them. The proximate and distant in relation were equal in front of you. Your conduct was truthful, honesty and compassionate. Your speech manifested your wisdom and decisiveness. Your affair displayed your forbearance and integrity. Your opinion was nothing but knowledge and determination. You uprooted (apostasy), cleared the path of its evil, transformed its difficulty into ease and in this way extinguished its fire. The religion was set right due to you and Islam and the believers went from strength to strength because of you. You have advanced far beyond. After you, we are gripped with an intense weariness. Excruciating is the grief over you. Your demise is a momentous matter in the skies. Anguish over you has shattered the people. Then 'to Allah do we belong and towards Him shall we return.' We are satisfied with Allah's Decree and we submit to Allah's Affair. Then by Allah, the believers shall never be afflicted with a sorrow like your sorrow. You were, for the believers, a sheltering cave and for the disbelievers an acute chastisement. Then may Allah unite you with His Prophet (s.a.w.) and may He not withhold your reward from us and may He not deviate us after you.'" Then the people became silent until the man finished his discourse. They cried along with the companions of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a .). Then they tried to seek the man but could not find him. (That man was none other than Hazrat Khizr a.s.) (Reference: Amaali-e-Sadooq (r.a.) – Majlis 42, tradition 11) Condolences to our Master - Imam-e-Asr (a.t.f.s.) - the sheltering cave for the believers and an acute chastisement for the disbelievers. May Allah hasten his reappearance.

Çááøåõãø ÇáúÚóäú ÞóÊóáóÉó ÃóãöíÑö ÇáúãõÄúãöäöíäó Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã When Abd al-Rahman bin Muljam (l.a.) wounded Imam Ali (a) who was then offering the morning prayers in the Mosque of Kufa, Imam Ali (a) advised Imam Hasan (a) and Imam Husayn (a) in the following words. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I advise you to fear Allah, do not go after this vicious world though it may try to entice you, do not seek it though it may seek you and do not grieve over and pine for things which this world refuses you. Let the eternal Reward and Blessings of Allah be the prompting factors for all that you say and do. Be an enemy of tyrants and oppressors and be a friend and helper of those who are oppressed and tyrannized. To you, to my other children, to my relatives and to everyone whom my writing reaches, I advise to fear Allah and to be pious, to have fair and honest dealings with one another and improve mutual relations because I have heard your grandfather, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) saying, "To remove mutual enmity, ill-feeling and hatred is better than recommended prayers and fasting". Fear Allah when the question of helpless orphans arises. You should never let them starve. So long as you are there to guard and protect them they should not be ruined or lost. Fear Allah in respect of the neighbours. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had always advised, cautioned and reminded us of this responsibility, so much so that we often thought that the Prophet of Allah (s.a.w.a.) would allow them a share from our inheritance. Fear Allah in respect of the Holy Qur'an, lest others should excel and surpass you in following its tenets and in acting according to its orders. Fear Allah in respect of the prayers because prayers are pillars of your religion. Fear Allah in the matter of His Holy House (Kaa'ba). Let it not be deserted because if it is deserted, you (the Muslims) will not be spared. Fear Allah in the matter of Jihad, struggle in His Cause with your property, lives and tongues. Develop mutual liking, friendship and love and help one another. Take care that you do not spurn each other and sever mutual relations. Do not give up bidding for good and abstaining from evil lest the vicious gain ascendancy over you. And then if you pray, your prayers will not be heard by Allah. Then he said: O sons of Abdul Muttalib! Certainly I do not wish to see you plunging harshly into the blood of Muslims shouting: ‘Amirul Momineen (a.s.) has been killed.’ Beware do not kill on account me except my killer. Wait till I die by his (Ibne Muljam (l.a.)) stroke. Then strike him one stroke for his stroke and do not dismember the limbs of the man for I have heard the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.) saying: ‘Avoid cutting limbs even though it may be a rabid dog.’
