  Ali - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ali's father, Abu Talib, was a member of the powerful tribe of the Quraysh, and an uncle to the young Muhammad.
While Ali and the rest of Muhammad's close family were washing the prophet's body for burial, at a gathering attended by a small group of Muslims at Saqifah, the sucession was given to Abu Bakr As-Sideeq by vote, who became the new leader of the Muslim community.
The capital of the province of Syria, Damascus, was held by Mu'awiyah, the governor of Syria and a kinsman of Uthman, Ali's slain predecessor.

Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman, however, occupied this position before him, and it was not until 656, after the murder of Uthman, that he assumed the title of caliph.
Ali's descendants by Fatima are known as the Fatimids.
Ali is described as a bold, noble and generous man, "the last and worthiest of the primitive Moslems, who imbibed his religious enthusiasm from companionship with the prophet himself, and who followed to the last the simplicity of his example." (See further Caliphate.)

 Abdul Aziz bin Muhammad bin Saud - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Abdul Aziz bin Muhammad bin Saud (Arabic: عبد العزيز ن محمد بن سعود) was the second ruler of the First Saudi State and son of Muhammad bin Saud.
One notable event of his reign were attacks on the shrines of Ali bin Abu Talib in Najaf, Iraq and on the shrine of Imam Husayn in Karbala, Iraq.
This was done in 1802, and is not surprising considering the view in Wahhabism that opposes the building of shrines and which considers the Shia not to be Muslim (both shrines are very important to the Shia).

 Seventh Session, Part 2
Ali's knowledge is similar to Noah's in that Ali was vehement against the infidels and compassionate toward the believers.
Ali was certainly most deserving of the caliphate, but he was cast aside by the political maneuvering of lesser men.
Abu Bakr, for reasons of political expediency, proposed the names of Umar and Abu Ubaida Bin Jarra, and they too, returning the proposal, suggested the name of Abu Bakr, telling him that he was the most qualified for the position.

Nevertheless, at the cornerstone of Shi'a history is the figure of 'Ali and his persecution by the illegitimate caliphs.
However, 'Ali, Muhammed's son-in-law and cousin, was not part of this committee nor were other members of Muhammed's immediate family, and many believed that Muhammed had designated 'Ali as a successor, for the Traditions had Muhammed naming him as both his brother and his successor.
'Ali had been raised with Muhammed and was the second person (after Muhammed's wife Khadija) to recognize Muhammed's role as a prophet; he was the first of Muhammed's tribe, the Quraysh, to declare himself an apostle.
