Knowing the Imams: the Knowledge of Imam Ali and his Judgments

Abi Talib, was the most learned one after the Messenger of God, as an Silica and Sunnis unanimously believe, as do the extremists and the Nawsib, and even non-Muslims, such as Jews, Christians, and untouchables.

For Islam, with its foundation in tawhid, all the rungs of the ladder to holiness and righteousness require knowledge, and the only way to know the Book and the traditions is through knowledge. Therefore, God instructed His Messenger to seek knowledge, and then teach the Book and wisdom. Hundreds of verses in the Holy Qur’an invite man to knowledge, praise, and prayer. Is it then possible to completely ignore all these foundational principles and under-mine them by trusting the affairs of the nation to someone without knowledge after the demise of the Messenger, who was the most aware of holiness and righteousness? Or to allow the ignorant people to choose a caliph? Anyone acquainted with the Spirit of Islam and its philosophy would know that such a system is totally wrong, and contrary to the invitation of the Messenger of God to Islam.

Abi Talib, was the most learned one after the Messenger of God, as an Silica and Sunnis unanimously believe, as do the extremists and the Nawsib, and even non-Muslims, such as Jews, Christians, and untouchables. He was the most familiar with the condition of tawhid, the Divine Names and Attributes, the Holy Qur’an, and the traditions of the Messenger of God. He was also acquainted with the commands and laws of Islam, the rules of governance, judgment, and the settling the disputes, and was connected to the Divine World and had knowledge of its secrets. So is it not a kind of theft to ignore all these attributes by denying them to Ali?
