Hazrat Ali(a.s) : The First Muslim who Accepted islam.

Since Ali was a member of the Prophet’s own family, he was inevitably the first, among males, to receive the message of Islam. He testified that God was One, and that Muhammad was His messenger. And he was very eager to stand behind Muhammad Mustafa to offer prayers. Since then Muhammad was never seen at prayer except when Ali was with him. The boy also memorized the verses of Al-Qur’an al-Majid as and when they were revealed to Muhammad. In this manner, he literally grew up with Qur’an. In fact, Ali and Qur’an “grew up” together as “twins” in the house of Muhammad Mustafa and Khadija-tul-Kubra. Muhammad Mustafa, the Messenger of Allah, had found the first Muslima in Khadija, and the first Muslim in Ali ibn Abi Talib.

Muhammad ibn Ishaq

Ali was the first male to believe in the Apostle of God, to pray with him and to believe in his divine message, when he was a boy of ten. God favored him in that he was brought up in the care of the Apostle before Islam began. (The Life of the Messenger of God)

Muhammad Husayn Haykal

Ali was then the first youth to enter Islam. He was followed by Zayd ibn Harithah, Muhammad’s client. Islam remained confined to the four walls of one house. Besides Muhammad himself, the converts of the new faith were his wife, his cousin, and his client. (The Life of Muhammad, Cairo, 1935)

Marmaduke Pickhtall

The first of all his (Muhammad’s) converts was his wife, Khadija; the second his first cousin Ali, whom he had adopted; the third his servant Zeyd, a former slave. (Introduction to the Translation of Holy Qur’an, Lahore, Pakistan, 1975)

The third “witness” who accepted Islam, was Zayd ibn Haritha, the freedman of Muhammad, and a member of his household.

Tor Andre

Zaid was one of the first to accept Islam, in fact the third, after Khadija and Ali. (Mohammed, the Man and his Faith, 1960)

Ali ibn Abi Talib was the first male to accept Islam, and his precedence is beyond any question. Allama Muhammad Iqbal, the poet-philosopher of Indo-Pakistan, calls him, not the first, but “the foremost Muslim.”

Ibn Ishaq

From Yahya b. al-Ash’ath b. Qays al-Kindi from his father, from his grandfather Afiif: Al-Abbas b. Abdul Muttalib was a friend of mine who used to go often to the Yaman to buy aromatics and sell them during the fairs. While I was with him in Mina, there came a man in the prime of life and performed the full rites of ablution and then stood up and prayed. Then a woman came out and did her ablution and stood up and prayed. Then out came a youth just approaching manhood, did his ablutions, then stood up and prayed by his side. When I asked Al-Abbas what was going on, and he said that it was his nephew Muhammad b. Abdullah b. Abdul Muttalib, who alleges that Allah has sent him as an Apostle; the other is my brother’s son, Ali ibn Abi Talib, who has followed him in his religion; the third is his wife, Khadija daughter of Khuwaylid who also follows him in his religion. Afiif said after he had become a Muslim and Islam firmly established in his heart, ‘Would that I had been a fourth.!’ (The Life of the Messenger of God)

The fourth witness who accepted Islam, was Abu Bakr, a merchant of Makkah. In the beginning, Muhammad preached Islam secretly for fear of arousing the hostility of the idolaters. He invited only those people to Islam who were known to him personally. It is said that through the efforts of Abu Bakr, the fourth Muslim, a few other Makkans also accepted Islam. Among them were Uthman bin Affan, a futurekhalifa of the Muslims; Talha, Zubayr, Abdur Rahman bin Auf, Saad bin Abi Waqqas, and Obaidullah ibn al-Jarrah.

For a long time the Muslims were very few in number and they did not dare to say their prayers in public. One of the early converts to Islam was Arqam bin Abi al-Arqam, a young man of the clan of Makhzoom. He was well-to-do and lived in a spacious house in the valley of Safa. Muslims gathered in his house to offer their congregational prayers. Three years passed in this manner. Then in the fourth year, Muhammad was commanded by God to invite his own folks to Islam openly.

And admonish thy nearest kinsmen. (Chapter 26; verse 214)

The A’maal of Shab-e-Qadr (19th, 21st & 23rd of Ramadan)

Shab-e-Qadr is the night, which is the best night among the nights of the whole year. The “A’maal” (religious performances) of this night are better than the A’maal of 1000 months. In this night the divine Annual Decree is passed. The Angels and Roohul Ameen (A highly dignified Angel) descend on this earth, in that night. These call on the Imam of the time, and what is ordained (by Allah) for everybody is presented before the Imam.

The common A’maals are: –

1. To take a bath. Allama Majlisi says, “It is better to take a bath before sunset so that the night prayers may be performed after bath”.

2). Prophet Mohammad(pbuh&hf) has said that whoever performs two Raka’at of prayers during Shab-e-Qadr in a manner that after Sura Al-Hamd, recites 7 times Sura Tawheed (Qul ho-Allah ho Ahad) and after prayers recites 70 times

(Astaghfirulla-ha wa-atoubo ilaeh)

“I seek pardon from God and ask for penitence from Him”. then before his rising up from the prayers, Allah(swt) will forgive all his sins and the sins of his parents.

3. Imam Jafer-e-Sadiq(a.s.) recommends that “Put the Holy Quran on your head and say:

O Allah treat me as one of those who are free from Hell, in the name of this Holy Book sent by Thee, whatever there be in the Book. Including Ism-e-A’azam and Asmaa-e-Husnaa and the things to be dreaded, the things that may be expected and desired, like blessings of Jannat. Do forgive through the grace of this book

Alaahumma inni asaloka be kitaabekal munzale Wa maa feeh, wa feehismokal akbaro wa asmaakal husnaa, wa maa yokhaafo Wa yurjaa an taj-alani min otaqaaeka minan-Naar”,

(SALAWAT-After this he may beg from Allah whatever he wants).

4. He should place the Holy Qur’an on his head and say,

O Allah! I appeal to Thee in the name of this Qur’an and the Rooh that was sent along with it, and in the name of the Momin (believer) whose praise is contained in this Book and Tine obligation that is on them. No one else recognizes the right and truth more than Thee

“Allaahumma be haqqe haazal Qur’an we be haqqe man arsaltahoo beh, Wa be haqqe kulle momenin madahtahoo feeh, we be haqqeka alaihim fa-laa ahada a’arafo be haqqeka mink”,

(SALAWAT-After this he should repeat 10 times each):

BEKA YA ALLAH’HO (S.W.T.)

BE MOHAMMADIN (S.A.W.)

BE ALIYYIN (A.S.)

BE FATEMATA (A.S.)

BIL HASANE (A.S.) BIL HUSAINE (A.S.)

BE ALIY IBNIL HUSAIN (A.S.)

BE MOHAMMED IBN ALIYYIN (A.S.)

BE JA’FAR IBN MOHAMMEDIN (A.S.)

BE MOOSA IBN JA’FAR (A.S.)

BE ALI IBN MOOSA (A.S.)

BE MOHAMMED IBN ALIYYIN (A.S.)

BE ALI IBN MOHAMMED (A.S.)

BIL HASAN IBN ALIYYIN (A.S.)

BIL HOJJATIL QAEM (A.S.)

It is highly recommeded to recite the Ziarat-e-Warisa of Imam Hussain(a.s.) in all the three nights and to perform 100 raka’at in all the three nights – specially in the night of the 23rd of Ramzan. If you do not feel sufficient energy to pray standing, still it is recommeded to pray in sitting position. If some of your prayers are QAZA (obligatory prayers missed earlier which have to be performed) then perform the QAZA prayers of 6 days instead of the 100 raka’at of prayers.

5. During these nights it is recommended to recite Dua Joshan-e-Kabeer, Dua Joshan-e-Sagheer, Dua Makaram-ul-Ikhlaq and Dua-e-Tauba.

6. During these nights it is recommended to recite Dua Joshan-e-Kabeer, Dua Joshan-e-Sagheer, Dua Makaram-ul-Ikhlaq and Dua-e-Tauba.

7. One should keep himself awake throughout these three nights. The vigil during these nights carries great Sawab (heavenly reward).

8. To offer 100 Raq’ats of Namaz. It has been highly recommended. It is better to recite (after Surat-al-Hamd) 10 times the Surat-al-Tauhid/ Sure Ikhlaas (Kulhowallah).

9. Recite:Astagferullaah Rabbi Wa atoobo elaihe” 100 times (i.e., “I seek pardon from God and ask for penitence from Him”).

10. Recite: “Allaahummal’an qatalatal Ameeril Momeneen” 100 times (i.e., “O Allah! Thy malison upon the assassin of Ameerul Moineneen Ali ibne Abi Talib”).
