Karamaat (Marvels) of Sayyiduna Mawla Ali al-Murtuda Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anho


Countless Salutations be upon the cup-bearer of milk and potion; the approved one, the lion of Allah and the bravest of the brave… Countless Salutations be upon the shadow of power of the providence the lion striking with the sword and sovereign conqueror of Khyber!! ♥

CURE FOR A CRIPPLE: Allama Taaj al-Din as-Subki Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu states in his book Tabqaat that once Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu took Hadrat Imam Hassan and Hussain (Radi Allahu Anhum) and went to the Kaa’ba. Whilst in the Haram, they heard a person crying bitterly, begging Almighty Allah to forgive him. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu asked for this person to be brought before him. The person came to Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu dragging himself on the ground. He was a cripple. Hadrat Ali asked how he had become cripple and he said that he spent all his time openly committing sins. His father was a very pious Muslim who always warned him against sinning, but he took no heed. Once whilst his father was giving him advice, he became angry and beat his father up. His father became very sad and went to the Kaaba and cursed him. It was through the curse of his father, that he had become a cripple. The man said that he then realized his wrongs and repented sincerely in the Court of Allah and he also asked his father to forgive him. His father forgave him in fatherly love and was very pleased when he changed his life. The man then took an oath and said that his father asked to be brought back to Makkah, so that he may ask Allah to forgive his son and grant him cure. Whilst on their way to Makkah, their camel tripped, and his father fell off and was killed. The man said that from that day on he has been crying day and night in the Kaaba, begging Almighty Allah to grant him good health. When Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu heard this, he said, “If your father became pleased with you, then have faith that Almighty Allah is pleased with you.” Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu then read a few rakaats of Salaah and made dua for him. He then said, “Rise in the name of Allah! The cripple immediately stood up and was cured. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu said, AIf you had not taken an oath to say that your father had become pleased with you, then I would never had made dua for you.” [Tabqaat]

 

WALL STOPPED FROM FALLING: Hadrat Imam Jaa’far as-Saadiq Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu states that once Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu was seated against a wall deciding a case, when people sitting in the hearing began to shout and become panic stricken. They asked Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu to move away as the wall that he was sitting against was about to collapse. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu said, “Continue with the hearing. Allah is the Best Protector” The case continued. After the case had come to an end and when Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu left the area, then only did the wall collapse without causing any harm to anybody. [Izaalat al-Khulafa]

 

A SPY BECOMES BLIND: There was a person who used to sit in the companionship of Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu as a spy. He used to carry the information from the court of Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu to the opposition. Once Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu confronted him concerning this, and he denied this by swearing an oath. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu got into Jalaal and said, “If you are telling a lie, then may Allah take your sight away.” The spy immediately became blind and from that day on walked around with a cane in his hand. [Shawahid an-Nabuwwah, Page 127]

 

ANGELS SERVE HIS HOME: Hadrat Abu Dharr Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu says, “Once the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam sent me to call Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu from his home. When I reached his blessed home, I saw that the flour mill was in motion by itself, without being operated by anyone. When I told the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam about this, the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘O Abu Dharr! There are some Angels of Allah that travel the earth. Allah has also given them the duty of assisting my family.’”

 

HIS FORESIGHT: Once, a man came to meet Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu. He met with him and told him about his future. He informed him that he will be hanged. He even pointed out to him the exact date tree on which his hanging will take place. When the time arrived, everything occurred as Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu had foretold. [Izaalat al-Khulafa]

 

FLOODS CONTROLLED: Once the river Euphrates burst its banks and the entire farms and orchards surrounding it began to flood. They people went to Sayyiduna Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu and asked him to make dua. He immediately stood up and wore the Jubbah of the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. He then tied the turban of the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and covered himself with the shawl of the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam. He saddled his horse and rode towards the River Euphrates. A huge group of people followed him by foot. Hadrat Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu were also amongst those who followed him. He stopped on the bridge beside the river and pointed to the river with his Aasa. The swelling river dropped in depth. He did this three times and the depth of the water decreased thrice. The people then called out to him and said that the situation could now be controlled, so he stopped. [Shawahid an-Nabuwwah, Page 162]

 

AN AMAZING SPRING: On the way to battle, the Army of Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu passed through areas where there was no water at all. The soldiers were very thirsty and found it difficult to proceed without water. They stopped near a monastery and Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu asked the Monk that was present their, if he knew where water could be found. The Monks said that water could be found if they traveled for another two miles. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu then got onto a mule, and rode a few steps to a spot near the monastery. He then pointed out a spot and asked his companions to dig in the specified place. They dug until they came to a huge stone which could not be moved. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu dismounted his mule and placed the fingers of both his hands on either sides of the stone and with one powerful tug, the stone came loose and a spring of fresh, clean, sweet water gushed from underneath the stone. Everyone there drank from the spring and even fed their animals. When the monk saw this karaamat of Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu, he asked, “Are you and Angel?” Hadrat Ali said that he was not an Angel. He then asked if Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu was a Nabi and he replied in the negative. He then asked Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu to introduce himself. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu said, “I am the Sahabi of the Final Messenger Hadrat Muhammad SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam and the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam also informed me of certain things.” On hearing this, the monk read the Kalima Sharif and accepted Islam. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu asked why he had not accepted Islam before. The monk said, “It is in our books, that there is a spring which is concealed near this monastery, and only a Nabi or the companion of a Nabi will unveil this spring. Myself and many monks before me lived at this monastery in hope of seeing this miracle. Today, when you unveiled the spring, my desire was fulfilled.” When Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu heard this, he wept until his beard dripped with tears. He then said, “Alhumdulillah! My name is even present in their books.” The monk joined the companions of Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu and fought in the battle, wherein he was martyred. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu buried him and made Du’a for him. [Shawahid an-Nabuwwah, Page 164]

 

AN AMAZING INCIDENT: One night a husband and wife fought the entire night in their house, which was situated beside a Masjid near the Darbaar of Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu. In the morning, he asked for them to be brought before him. He asked what had happened and the husband said that they had just made Nikah and on the night after their Nikah, they both had an argument in which his wife suddenly began to show much hate and contempt towards him. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu sent all those present in his Court outside and then said to the woman, “Whatever I ask you, you must reply very truthfully.” He then said, “O woman! Your name is such and such and your father is such and such person.” The lady acknowledge this. He then said, “You became pregnant after committing adultery. You and your mother concealed this pregnancy for a long time. Then, when you began to feel labour pains, your mother took you to a secluded place where you gave birth to a boy. The baby was then wrapped in a cloth and left in a field. Then a dog went near the child. Your mother threw a rock at the dog trying to fend it away, but the rock struck the child, causing his head to be severely injured. Your mother felt pity and then tied a bandage on the child’s head. Then, the two of you fled and never saw this child again.” The woman was amazed, since whatever Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu said was the truth. He then asked the man to show his head. The man had a deep scar on his head. Hadrat Ali Radi ALLAHu Ta’ala Anhu said, “O Woman! This is your son and not your husband. Both of you should thank Allah, that he protected you from committing Haraam.” [Shawahid an-Nabuwwah, Vol 161 | Khazinat al-Asfiyah, Vol 1 Page 17]
