Commemorating the Martyrdom of Imam Ali (a.s.) 40 A.H.On the 21st of Ramadhan 40 A.H. a great man departed from this world. The Commander of the faithful received a wound on his head. The best physicians of Kufa were called for the treatment of the Imam but the blow was too deep. In his last moments, his lips parted into a prayer of thanksgiving: ‚ÄúO Lord! I thank thee for rewarding me with martyrdom.‚Äù Then he expressed orders that his murderer should not be tortured before his execution, his body should not be mutilated, his family should not be be made to suffer on account of his crime. Imam Ali‚Äôs justice was always tempered with mercy even to his worst enemies.O Allah, on this day,show me the way to win Your pleasure,do not let Shaytan have a means over me, make Paradise an abode and a resting place for me, O the One who fulfills the requests of the needy. Amaal for 21st Night of Ramadhan.
