Question: How correct is it to say: ((‘Alee Karram-Allaahu wajhahu)) (‘Alee (ibn Abee Taalib), may Allaah honour his face (i.e. him))”?
Response: There is no basis for saying this specifically for ‘Alee (radhi-yallaahu ‘anhu), rather it is an example of the excessive (love and respect) of the Shee’ah (Raafidhah) towards him.
And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
