Ali The Magnificent

If you want to see knowledge of Adam, the piety of Noah, the devotion of Abraham, the awe of Moses and the service and abstinence of Jesus, look at the bright face of Ali.

CLOSING OF THE DOORS OPENING INSIDE
THE PROPHET’S MOSQUE.

Later on, some companions of the Prophet also built their houses close to the Mosque with doors opening into the courtyards. Sometime afterwards, while they were leisurely sitting in the Mosque, a voice was heard:

“Ye people! Close your doors opening into the Mosque.” The people were struck with wonder to hear the voice, but they sat dumb without stirring to carry out the Command, till they heard again the injunction to close the doors on pain of Divine Wrath. Terrified at this warning, they all approa­ched the Prophet, who was in his apartment. Ali also came out of his apartment, which was adjacent to the Prophet’s rooms since the day of Fatima’s marriage with him. He stood by the Prophet when he ordered that all the doors opening into the Mosque, excepting that of Ali and his own, should be closed. People began to murmur. The Prophet was angry at their attitude and addressed them thus: “Verily, God ordered His apostle Moses to build a holy Mosque, and he allowed Moses, Aaron and the two sons of Aaron, viz. Shabbar and Shabbir, to live therein. I was likewise ordered to cons­truct a holy mosque wherein myself and my brother All and his two sons, Hasan and Husaln are allowed to live. Verily, I do only what I am ordered to do. I never under­take to act on my own wish. Certainly I have not ordered of my own accord to close your doors or to let All’s door open. it is God who granted All an abode in the Holy Mosque.” Consequently, the companions, whose houses skirted the quadrangle of the Mosque, closed their doors.

It is recorded on the authority of Sa’d, that the Apostle of God said to Ali “It is not lawful for any to be in the Mosque while under the obligation of performing a thorough ablution except for me and for thee,” Major Jarret’s translation of Suyuti’s His. p. 175.

Omar b. Al-Khattab said “Verily, Ali has been endowed with three qualities, of which had I but one, it would be more precious to me than were I given high bred camels.” It was asked of him what they were? He replied “His marriage with Fatirna, the daughter of the Prophet; his remaining in the Mosque while that is permitted to him which is not lawful for me; and carrying the Standard’ on the day of Khaibar.” Major Jarret’s translation of Suyuti’s His. p. 175.
