Sayyidina Ali ibn Abi Talib was the fourth Khalifa of Islam. He had the distinction of being both the son-in-law and the cousin of the Holy Prophet, upon him be peace. He is, with Fatima, the ancestor of the Ahl al-Bayt, the People of the Prophetic House. He was characterised by martial skill, by inward depth, and by an immense erudition in religious knowledge. Of him, Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal said: 'Khilafa was not an ornament for him, he was an ornament for khilafa.'

JEWELS OF THE AHLUL BAYT VOL 1 : THE VIRTUES OF ALI IBN ABI TALIB (RA) - Luqman al-Andulusi -  This is the first Volume in a series of three in relation to the family of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH). The books encompass as much sound knowledge as possible on the lives of these great figures. The Series in itself is called the Jewels of the Ahlul Bayt. This first Volume will speak more specifically in regard to the Virtues of Amir al-Muminin 'Ali ibn Abi Talib. The sections go through a chronological journey through the life of Ali ibn Abi Talib. They explain how our master entered Islam through the blessed hands of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), his belief system, his life in Mecca, the Hijrah to the city of Madinah al-Munawarrah, his blessed marriage to Sayyidah Fatima az-Zahra, the births of Imams Hasan and Husayn, his glory in battle, the influence of his knowledge among the Companions of the Prophet, his journey to Allah through his recitation of the Quran and his love of it.All being teachings strictly supervised under the guidance of the Messenger of Allah. May we learn from the blessed life of Ali ibn Abi Talib and his family. Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon the Messenger of Allah, all of his family and companions. Amin. 

JEWELS OF THE AHLUL BAYT VOL 2 -The Life and Marriage of Fatimah al-Zahrah - Luqman Al-Andulusi -  The life and virtues of Fatimah al-Zahrah and her beloved family has been a source of inspiration, guidance and succour for countless Muslims throughout the history of Islam. Therefore, with the intention of pleasing Allah, this book hopes to delve into the marriage and personal life of Sayyidinah Fatimah and her beloved husband Sayyidina Ali ibn Abi Talib, in order that we too may benefit from their radiant examples. The examples set by them and the lessons gained from their lives are meant not only to be read, but also to be implemented within our lives. By studying their marriage we hope for an improvement in our moral character, our knowledge and wisdom and we hope that this will allow us to also live amongst our family with respect and honour. The noblest among the family are the women, for Allah created them to be merciful and women are connected to the Divine Names al-Rahman and al-Rahim. The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, commands us to be kind to our wives and women in general, for they are our mothers, our wives, our daughters and our sisters, and must be honored. So in deference to that love and the command of the Prophet, we board the ship of the Ahl al-Bayt to learn about the blessed lives of Fatimah and Ali. And with Allah is all success.
