In another tradition known as the hadith of the Truth (hadith al-haqq), the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him and his family, says: "'Ali is with the truth and the truth is with 'Ali; wherever the truth is, 'Ali will incline to it."

On the day of fraternization between Muhajirin (the emigrants) and Ansars (the inhabitants of Medinah who supported the Muhajirin). The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) said to Imam Ali (a.s.):

"You are my brother and I am your brother. If anybody asks you, tell him: I am the servant of Allah and the brother of His Messenger. No one would claim this after you but a liar."

isn't it amazing that despite the fact that both the holy prophet and imam were muhajir, and brotherhood was being established between ansar and muhajir, there was none that was worthy of the brotherhood of the holy prophet except imam?

Exactly! and another amazing fact is that, if the Holy Prophet s.a.w.w had a choice of establishing brotherhood with either muhajir or ansar and he choosed Imam Ali a.s ,wasnt this choice of his a death blow to any of the muhajirs and ansars who claimed to be more better or equal to the unique position of Imam Ali a.s? If they had been in any ways more deserving of the position then Imam Ali ,wouldnt the Prophet of Allah know this and wouldn’t he have chosen them instead of Imam Ali a.s???

Doesnt this once and for all expose the true faces of the usurpers of caliphate on the basis of experience,age e.t.c e.t.c

gave you in marriage to the best in my Ummah, the most
knowledgeable in them, the best in patience in them, and the
first Muslim among them."
