Ali al-Ihsai: If not Ali call wouldn’t be manifestated to Muhammad!


Shaykh Ali Taqi ibn Shaykh Ahmad ibn Zaynutdin al-Ihsai said:

وورد أن الله ليلة المعراج ما كلم رسول الله إلا بلسان علي , فعلي لسان رسول الله , قال تعالى { فَإِنَّمَا يَسَّرْنَاهُ بِلِسَانِكَ لِتُبَشِّرَ بِهِ الْمُتَّقِينَ وَتُنذِرَ بِهِ قَوْماً لُّدّاً }[4] . فلولا علي لم يكن يسر رسول الله يسراً ولم تظهر له دعوة . قال علي عليه السلام: ” أنا آية نبوة محمد ” وقال : ” ليس لله آية أكبر مني ولا نبأ أعظم مني “[5]  فافهم .

Translation:

And it came (in reports) that Allah in the night of al-Meraj didn’t speak with messenger of Allah except by the tongue (voice) of Ali, and Ali (was) tongue of messenger of Allah, said Taala: “So We have only made it easy in your tongue that you may give good news thereby to those who guard (against evil) and warn thereby a vehemently contentious people“. AND IF NOT ALI THERE WOULDN’T BE (ANY) EASY TO MESSENGER OF ALLAH (ANY) EASINESS. AND CALL WOULD’T BE MANIFESTATED TO HIM. Ali, alaihi salam, said: “I am sign of  prophecy of Muhammad”. And (he) said: “There is no sign for Allah bigger than I, and no news greater than I”.
