In Kano, the birth ceremony of Ameerul Mu’mineen took place at the Kano Hussainiyyah at night on Sunday, 15th Rajab 1436 (3/5/2015).
Guest speaker, Shaikh Muhammad Mahmud Turi spoke on the virtues associated with Imam Ali (AS), citing authentic references to buttress his point.
Shaikh Turi described Imam Ali (AS) as an outstanding figure history is yet to produce, whose attributes are far beyond human conception.
He said, only the Allah and the Holy Messenger of Allah (S) know the true divine status of Imam Ali (AS).
Shaikh Turi however pointed out that, the little we know of Imam Ali (S) should be used to see him as a role model worthy of emulation.
People were treated to a grand feast to commemorate the day, while poets read out verses in praise of Imam Ali (S).
