If I Supplicated to Allaah with the name Ali – By: Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzan

Question:

May Allaah treat you well. The questioner asks; If I supplicated to Allaah with the name ” O Ali” (without the adding the AL in front of it) intending the name of Allaah; al-Ali العلي (the Most High) is this imitating the actions of the Raafidah (Shia) those who seek aid from other than Allaah?

Answer:

(Do not say) Ali only (say) علي عظيم (the Most High, the All Mighty) as Allaah says; “He is al-Ali al-Atheem” (2:225)

Why don’t you say ع لي عظ يم Ali Atheem (as mentioned in the ayah) (so) that you will be safe from what you have said; fearing that you maybe supplicating to Ali Ibn Abee Taalib. So if you would have said; O Ali O Atheem (together) as mentioned in the ayah, you would be protected from this accusation.
