The Truth is with Ali(as)
What are the virtues of Imam Ali? 1- One of the virtues that has been narrated by the Sunnis is the birth of Imam Ali (as) inside the Kaaba. A virtue that, according to the Sunni elders, is a special virtue, which is unique to the existence of Amir al-Mu’minin Ali (AS).
Saying that God has done this care for the greatness of Imam (AS), he added: “Even the prophets did not have this virtue and it was really a miraculous event and it was not like the Kaaba was opened in the house, but the wall was opened and Fatima bint Asad Ali’s mother stayed inside the Kaaba for three days and nights, and the elders of Mecca could not open the Kaaba no matter what they did during those three days. 2- Imam Ali with the Prophet: It was destiny that Ali (AS) took refuge in the loving and loving lap of the Prophet (PBUH) from his childhood, so that he would always be proud of his kindness:
“You are aware of my position with the Messenger of God (PBUH) in my close kinship and the special status I have with him. He puts me in his arms as a child; He clings to his chest and puts him next to him in his bed … He never heard a lie from me and did not see any mistake or slip in my work … »]. Nahj al-Balaghah, Faiz al-Islam, Sermon 234, (with summary 3- The first Muslim after Hazrat Khadijeh:
According to some sources, the Prophet (PBUH) considered Imam Ali (AS)’s first Muslim as a virtue for him. [Ibn Aqda Kufi, The Virtues of the Commanders of the Faithful (peace be upon them), 1424 AH, p. 24 4-: Ali (AS) and the sanctuary of Hara
“Ali (AS) was with the Prophet (PBUH) so much that whenever he left the city and went to the mountains and desert, he would take him with him.”
Yes, Imam Ali (AS) saw the light of revelation and smelled the fragrance of mission and prophecy.
The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said in this regard:
إِنَّكَ تَسْمَعُ مَا أَسْمَعُ وَتَرَى مَا أَرَى; لاِلَّ أَنَّكَ لَسْتَ بِنَبِيٍّ وَلَكِنَّكَ وَزِیرٌ …;  You hear and see what I hear and see; “But you are not a prophet, but a minister and a helper.”
5- The first helper 
At the beginning of Islam, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) secretly called people to the divine religion.  But after a while, the first message of a friend in the mangrove cave fell on the heart of the Prophet:
وَأَنْذِرْ عَشیرَتَكَ اْلَأَقْرَبِينَ وَخْفِضْ جَناحَكَ لِمَنِ اتّبَعَكَ مِنَ الْمُؤْنِينَ فَإِنْ عَصَوْكَ فَن ُِن نِن Then the Prophet conveyed his message to his relatives according to the above verse and said:
“Which one of you will help me in this work so that my brother, guardian and caliph will be among you?”
And only Ali (AS) broke the heavy silence of the parliament:
“O Messenger of God! “I am.”
The Prophet (PBUH) said:
“Ali, my guardian and caliph among you. “Listen to him and obey him.”
From then on, Ali (AS) was appointed as the successor and guardian of the Messenger of God (PBUH).  6- Laylat al-Mubayt: It was a night when Imam Ali (AS) slept in the place of the Prophet of Islam so that the infidels who had planned to kill him would not notice the empty bed of the Prophet and the Prophet was able to migrate to Medina at night and save the Prophet’s life.
7- The author of the Holy Qur’an: One of the honors of Ali (AS) is to be the author of revelation who, according to his own words, collected it with all its revelation and the things that the Prophet had taught him, which unfortunately the second caliph did not accept and the Qur’an collected by Uthman Recognized. 8- Marriage to the daughter of the Prophet: This marriage took place on the 1st of Dhu al-Hijjah in the second year of AH. The sermon of their marriage was read by the Holy Prophet. According to narration sources, before Imam Ali (AS), other immigrants and Ansar expressed their desire to marry Hazrat Fatima (AS) to the Prophet (AS) but were opposed by him.
The dowry of Hazrat Zahra (PBUH) is mentioned in various sources between 400 and 500 dirhams, which is called the dowry of the Sunnah. Imam Ali (AS), according to what is narrated in the narrations, sold his armor to provide the dowry and the Prophet prepared the dowry of Hazrat Fatima (AS) with that money. On the night of the marriage of Imam Ali (AS) and Hazrat Fatima (AS), the people of Medina were fed at the invitation of the Prophet (PBUH). 9- Imam Ali in the battle of Badr: The Commander of the Faithful (pbuh) in this battle – which is the beginning of the war of the Prophet of God and also the first heroic figure of Ali (pbuh) – has a spectacular, praiseworthy and wonderful effect, as follows:
- The victorious flag of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps was in the mighty hands of Ali (as).
۲. Before the confrontation and in the critical stage of obtaining information, he went on a mission with some companions to achieve some and all of the enemy forces, which was an effective success.
- In the heart of the dark and horrible darkness of the night of battle, when the Prophet of God asked for water, Ali (as) stood up and steadily stepped on “Badr” and took water from a very deep and dark well and watered the Prophet of God. .
- In the first hand-to-hand battle, Ali (as) threw Walid ibn Utbah to the ground and then helped his opponent to kill Utbah, Walid’s father. Ali (as) has mentioned this glorious epic in a letter to Mu’awiyah:
I am a good father! The killer of your grandfather and brother and uncle that I split their heads in the battle of Badr; And I have that sword with me and I face my enemy with the same heart.
- Ali (pbuh) also buried As ibn Sa’id, the mighty warrior of the Quraysh, and Nawfal ibn Khuwaylid, the evil and vindictive enemy of the Prophet (pbuh).
- When the order to launch a general attack was issued and the forces joined forces and the fire of battle was kindled, it was Ali (as) who attacked the enemy like an angry lion and destroyed their military formation. As it is reported, 35 of the seventy slain polytheists were killed by the sword of Ali (as).
