30 Tricking Ali s forces Ibn Ash ath and other undercover agents in Ali s camp cajoled and bribed by Mu awiya, they work for him Ibn Ash ath and Khariji insist on their demands to arbitrate Ali is forced toward Arbitration Ali chooses the brilliant Ibn Abbas to represent him

31 Arbitration Ali wanted Ibn Abbas, but Khariji insisted instead on Al-Ashari to represent Ali Al-Ashari was not so bright Ali had to consent Muawiya chose Ibn Aas to represent him Ibn Aas is very cunning Both sides met a year later in a far away place to negotiate

32 Arbitration II The cunning Ibn Aas tricks Al-Ashari –Ibn Aas let Al-Ashari proclaim both Muawiya and Ali are to leave office then let people choose a Khalifa – Ibn Aas followed by saying: Ali should leave office but Muawiya is to stay in Power Commotion was the result because of the lies and deception of Ibn Aas They return disappointed and disillusioned

35 Prediction of the Prophet About Alis end 30 years earlier, the Prophet said to Ali: The most evil of evildoers is the one who will wet this (beard) with the blood From this (forehead) إنَّ أشقى الأشـقـيين مَن يُخضِّبُ هذه بهذه وأشار إلى لحيته ثم رأسه

36 Ibn Muljim, the Khariji Ibn Muljim, one of the deviators (Khariji), Along with 2 others planned to kill –Ali –Muawiya –Ibn Aas These Khariji were involved in Nahrawan They planned to avenge Muawiya and Ibn Aas escaped being killed

44 Ali the person Imam Ali's self was molded completely by the Islamic ideals Ali's personality was overpowering, he was an overachiever Ali's brilliance and farsightedness were striking Ali set to teach, inform, and help others learn about Islam Ali was an idealist, and nothing could influence him to deviate from these ideals

45 Ali the person II Ali's ideals had to be in a head-on clash with the opportunist, demagogues, and power-hungry, Ali stood in the face of deceit, duplicity, trickery, hypocrisy, greed, and treachery, of corrupt Benu Umayya Ali was a compulsive perfectionist when it came to Islam Ali stood for justice and freedom of choice, and the Holy Book and Sunnah

46 Ali assassinated III Ali lived to be 63 year old, just as the Prophet (pbuh) –He designated Al-Hasan as the 2 nd Imam –He gave advice to Al-Hasan as written in Nahjul Balaaghah After Al-Hasans agreement with Muawiya, the family returned to Medina to resume teaching Islam

49 Khilaafah: A birds-eye view #1 VIEW POINT I The phenomenon, the circumstance, the mode of choice and selection of the Khalifas are to be taken as they are This view is taken by the Sunni

50 Khilaafah: A birds-eye view #2 VIEW POINT II –The phenomenon would have been remarkably different had the wishes of Prophet Muhammad been observed. This view is taken by the Shia
