16) ALI: "SELF" OF THE PROPHET

There arc many Ayats (verses) which point out to the Caliphate of Ali bin Abi Taleb(as). It is not possible to enumerate all of them. But I would like you to see the event of 'Mubahila'. There you will find that Ali bin Abi Taleb(as) has been referred to in the Ayat of Mubahila as "the Self" of The Holy Prophct (saww).

It also follows that just as it is unlawful for every body to seelu to be superior to The Prophet similarly it is unlawful to supersede Ali - he being The Prophet's self according to the word of God, and any one who presumed to supersede hirn was certainly daring enough to supersede The Prophet!
