Similitude of Imam Ali (as)

قال رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) :

فضل عليّ بن أبي طالب على هذه الأمة كفضل شهر رمضان على سائر الشهور و فضل عليّ على هذه الأمة كفضل ليلة القدر على سائر الليالي.وفضل عليّ على هذه الأمة كفضل ليلة الجمعة على سائر الليالي، فطوبى لمن آمن به، وصدّق بولايته، والويل كل الويل لمن جحده وجحد حقه، حقاً على الله أن يحرمه يوم القيامة شفاعة محمّد (صلى الله عليه وآله)

Prophet Mohammed (saww) said:

"The excellence of Imam Ali (as) over this Ummah (community) is like the excellence of the Month of Ramadan over the rest of the months"

"The excellence of Imam Ali (as) over this Ummah (community) is like the excellence of the night of Qadr over all of the other nights."

"The excellence of Imam Ali (as) over this Ummah (community) is like the excellence of Friday night over the other nights (of the week)."

"So Tooba (tree in heaven) is for the one who believes in Him and accepts His Wilayah. And affliction complete affliction is for the one who rejects Him and rejects His rights. It is appropriate for Allah (swt) to deprive such a person the intercession of Mohammed (saww)"
