    About the sword

    Zulfiqar "Spinecleaver" (Arabic: ذو الفقار‎ Dhū l-Fiqār) is the legendary sword of the Islamic leader ‘Alī. In Arabic the name is commonly transliterated as Dhu al-Fiqar, Thulfeqar, Dhulfiqar, Zoulfikar etc

    By most accounts, Muḥammad(SW:) presented Zulfiqar to a young ‘Alī at the Battle of Uhud. During the battle, ‘Alī struck one of the fiercest adversaries, breaking both his helmet and his shield. Seeing this, Muhammad was reported to have said "There is no hero but ‘Alī and no sword except Dhū l-Fiqār" Arabic: "La fatà illa Ali, la saif illa Zulfiqar"
    ( لا فتى إلا علي لا سيف إلا ذو الفقار )

    This is widely engraved on weapons and has become a battle cry for some Muslims.

    This the picture of original Zulfiqar. A Muslim must appreciate the size of the Zulfiqar and the power and strength of Hazrat Ali. Indeed Sher-e-Khuda....

    The Lion of Allah, Asadullah, was a name given to Hazrat Hamzah (the Prophet's paternal Uncle) after his expolits in Battle.

    Hazrat Ali was a close beloved of the Prophet and his son in law, no doubt. But the laqab of Asadullah was bestowed upon Hazrat Humzah, not Hazrat Ali.

    Secondly, is there any proof that this sword was actually the one used by Hazrat Ali? If there is, I would appreciate if the info was given.

    I doubt that but surely i will Check it out again, as far as i remember Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) gave the Title of "Sword OF ALLAH" to Khalid Bin Waleed and Hazrat Ali GOT the Title of "Lion of ALLAH", I will check that again.

    Please stop spreading lies about Original Zulfiqar. Zulfiqar was send from God through angel gibrail to Muhammad to give it to Ali. From Ali to Imam Hussain and like that it was transfered to all the 12th imams. After death of Imam Hassan Aksari the sword was taken by his son Imam Mahdi n he went into state of invisibility (occultation) and Zulfiqar is with Imam Mahdi (a.s) now. no other human can touch it and the picture u showed is a complete fake. its just a model not original Zulfiqar Nauzubillah. Please donot post such things n earn sins. Avoid blindness and search the reality. Thank You

    Ordinary people may have given the title to Khalid BIN wALID BCOZ wateve rhe did was after the death of Prophet Muhammad. Its importan tthat Prophet Muhammad give titles is countable not ordinary people. and Khalid bin walid killed alot of Muslims who said Ali should be Caliph not Abu Bakar according to Muhammads (PBUH). Khalid Bin Waleed died in his bed from disease, he didnt even get martyrdom. so pLEASE stop following every ordinary human being. just follow Prophets sayings.

My intension is clear and innocent. If your claim is rite and verify by others than I would ask Mod to either delete or change the titile of the thread.

    Absolutely disgraceful the way you have chosen to speak about Hazrat Khalid bin Al Waleed (RA) and Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddeeq (RA). They were both beloved Companions of Rasool-Allah (SAW). All Companions (RA) deserve our respect and admiration.

    Khalid bin Al Waleed (RA) was given the title "Sword of Allah" (Saifullah) by the Prophet (SAW) himself. Hazrat Ali (RA) was given the title of Lion (Haider) and Hazrat Hamza (RA) was given the title of Lion of God and Lion of the Messenger (Assadullah and Assad-ur-Rasool, respectively).

    Finally, on his deathbed, Khalid bin al Waleed (RA) complained to one of his companions that he did not wish to die on a bed, but rather become a Martyr on the battlefield. The reply he was given was that, by giving him the title of "Sword of Allah", Rasool-Allah (SAW) had guaranteed not only that Kahlid bin al Waleed would win every battle (which he did, the only general apart from Ghenghis Khan to have a perfect record) but also that he could never be killed by a non-Muslim because it would signify that Allah's sword had been broken (Nauzubillah). This is why he died on a bed rather than on a battlefield. You and I and anyone else here could only dream of such an honourable death.

    I usually stay away from such subjects as my knowledge is very limited, and I am a sinner, but your post compelled me to reply. A very good friend of mine is Shia, and even he would strongly contend with you on your post.

    I will end by saying this, if we only had people with half the character, courage and leadership abilities as the Companions Ali, Khalid, Hamza, Abu Bakr, Umar and so on (RA), we would not be anywere near the state we are today. In fact, if we even had men like those who came after the Companions, such as "Salahuddin" Yusuf ibn Ayyub (Salahuddin was a title meaning "Righteous of the Faith", not his name) or Suleman "al-Qanooni" (al-Qanooni, once again, is a title meaning the Lawful) and many more, we would be far better off.

    Let's stop degrading these men and try to emulate them in our lives. I agree with you on one point, however, that the best man to try to emulate is Rasool-Allah (SAW) himself. Do this and then, InshAllah, Pakistan and Islam will touch new heights.

    Ye Jahaan Cheez Ha Kya Loho-qalam Tere Hain"
