30 Inspirational Ali Ibn Abi Talib (A.S) Quotes On Success

Ali Ibn Abi Talib, belonged to the family of Islam’s last prophet, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He is one of the four caliphs who had ruled after the demise of Muhammad. He is the only person who was born in the Kaaba, in Mecca. The holiest building and place for Muslims. Ali was a warrior, a scholar, a teacher, a statesman, a judge, legal advisor to caliphs, a philanthropist and the rightful successor to Muhammad for a populous sect of Muslims. 

He was known to be the wisest man of his time. The enemies feared him for he was the greatest Muslim warrior and had participated fearlessly in almost all of the battles fought by the nascent Muslims. Apart from being Muhammad’s cousin, he later also became his son in law, as he married Muhammad’s daughter Fatima. Prophet Muhammad’s lineage is considered to have continued through Ali and Fatima since he did not have sons who could live past young ages.

Muhammad was raised by Ali’s father, and Ali was raised by Muhammad. He accepted Islam and joined Muhammad’s vision of preaching the religion when he was only 9. Which made him the youngest person and the first child to have accepted Islam.
