Salaam,

When Imam Ali (as) was struck by the sword, he uttered the words, "Fausto Bay rabbil Kaaba" (I swear by the Lord of the Kaaba I am successful).

In your opinion, what did he mean by it?

“By the Lord of the Kaaba, I am successful”. These were the profound words uttered from the mouth of the beloved Imam Ali (a) upon being fatally struck by the sword of Abdul Rahman ibn Muljim (may Allah remove His mercy from him). When one discovers the circumstances in which Imam Ali (a) was in at the time of the strike, which was in a state of prostration during his pre-dawn prayers of 19th of Ramadan, it is quite difficult to understand how a person, in their last moments, could utter such words. However, it becomes easier to reconcile the facts when we understand who this personality was,

that this man was and is the best servant of Allah after our holy Prophet (s). It is only then when we can understand why such profound words were spoken.

Imam Ali, being the best servant of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, found obedience and servitude to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى in everything he would do, whether it was defending Islam on the battlefield or through his private invocations in the middle of the night, he truly sought to serve and worship Allah in every moment of his life. So it makes sense that he uttered those inspiring words because his death came during his worship of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, during his life’s goal, and thus he was truly successful. In this is a lesson in how we should go about our servitude to Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, but therein lies another lesson, a lesson from the murderer of our beloved Imam.
