Hazrat Ali Ibn e Abi Talib was not only the cousin of Prophet Muhammad PBUH but one of his greatest companions. It is about none other than him that the Prophet PBUH said:
“I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate; therefore, whoever want the city should enter through the gate.” – (Tirmidhi)
It is on the 19th of Ramadan that Hazrat Ali was struck on his head with a poisoned sword while offering the Fajr prayer in the mosque of Kufa. The assassin was a khariji named Ibn e Muljim. Hazrat Ali Ibn e Abi Talib stayed bedridden for two days and finally succumbed to the injuries and passed away on the 21st of Ramadan.
