13th Rajab: The Birthday Anniversary of Mawlood-e-Kaaba

13th Rajab: The Birthday Anniversary of Mawlood-e-Kaaba

Imam Ali (A.S.), the First Muslim, an intimate associate of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) in the life and the holy Islamic mission, the Immediate Successor to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) and the First Holy Immaculate Imam of the Shi’ites in the World, Imam Ali ibn Abu Taleb(A.S.) was born inside the Holy Kaaba at Makkah on Friday, the 13th day of Rajab, 600 A.D. It is an undisputed fact that Imam Ali (A.S.) was born a Muslim. Imam Ali (A.S.) is the only unique personality in the world who was born in the Holy Kaaba and was martyred in the Kufah Mosque and was buried in the holy city of Najaf-e-Ashraf (Iraq).


Imam Ali (a.s.) is the symbol of unity among Muslims: Ayatollah Khamenei


In an era which is characterized by lack of unity among Muslims, the Commander of the Faithful (a.s.) can serve as the symbol of this unity. He can serve as a common point which all Muslims recognize. No particular group of Muslims can claim that the commander of the Faithful (a.s.) belongs to them.
