Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib Shrine, Najaf
(4.8/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Pay your respects at Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib Shrine, considered the third holiest pilgrimage site for Shia Muslims. The complex serves as the resting place for the first imam, Ali ibn Abi Talib, and is also believed by many to house the remains of Noah and Adam. The complex was built around the imam’s grave in 977 CE, and has since been damaged and repaired several times. Reflect on the ancient traditional Islamic architecture, and don’t miss seeing the gold veranda, which serves as an entirely gilded entrance to the building.

  • Man kuntu maula Fahaza Ali un maula
  • A very beautiful shrine that houses the grave of a very beautiful personality: Imam Ali, the brother and son in law, of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Imam Ali once said to the Muslims: There are only two types of people in this world: either your brother in religion (referring to Muslims) or your equal in creation (referring to non-Muslims). Imam Ali a.s. basically is saying all people in the world should be respected for one reason or another. Hence preserving the real teachings of our beloved Holy Prophet Muhammad. This is in contrast to the polluted and false Islam teach by criminal groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda and their their teachers and financers, the corrupted Al Saud Family. We wish for all our beautiful shrines to be protected and God willing it will be. This is a beautiful shrine pleated in gold with a beautiful inner decorated praying area. My Imam I give you my salaams and warm greetings from my beloved home country, America.
  • Assalamu alaika ya sayyadena maula ali radiallahu anhu
  • Imam Ali's shrine in Najaf, the place where he requested his sons to bury his body, he was martyred during dawn prayer by an extremist muslim. it's also believed that prophets Adam and Noah are buried next to him.
