Ask an Alim



Q. Why maula ali a.s.refused to strike dowm rasul allah words at the time of hudaibia agreement? Whereas it was obligatory to follow orders frm prophet saws.


There are two thing to understand in this regard:

1. It was not an obligatory order rather it was a casual request to write an important piece of text.

2. Imam Ali (as) initially refused to do so because of his extra ordinary love towards prophet (pbuh). He was considering the removal of the word rasulullah as disrespect and he can’t tolerate this from non believers.
