The leader of Ummah


SHAFAQNA – Sheikh Sadooq in Amaali has mentioned a narration from Imam Baqer (AS) saying: When Allah (SWT) ascended the Prophet (PBUH) to Meraj, asked him: O’ Mohammad (PBUH), at the end of your prophethood and your life, who will you choose as the leader of Ummah? The Prophet (PBUH) replied: O’ my God, I have tested your people and have not found any one more obedient than Ali ibn Abitaleb (AS). Allah (SWT) said: And it is the same for me, O’ Mohammad, announce to him [Ali (AS)] that he is the leader and the light to my friends and those who obey Me [1].
