Reading Time: < 1 minute

Abd al-Baaqi Umari Afandi , a very famous poet and a descendant of Umar al-Khattaab, has said a poem in the glorification of Ameerul Momineen Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a.s.) whose first verse was as follows:

O Ali! You are a lofty existence from the above world

Whose birth Allah the High has decreed in the Holy Kabah”

Interestingly, Aaloosi – a celebrated Salafi scholar from Iraq – who belonged to a family of famous Salafi scholars – has written a commentary on this poem. On page 15 of this commentary, he writes:

“The birth of Ali in the House of Allah is an affair that is extremely famous (and thus irrefutable).”
