Ali bin abi Talib’s successor was Malik al-Ashtar!!


‘Ali (ra)’s successor was Malik al-Ashtar?!!

 

I’ve been doing some research on Maalik al-Ashtar, I’ve always found him an ambiguous character.

I came across this little gem recently:

Shia Source: خلاصة الاقوال في معرفة الرجال – Khulasatul Aqwaal Fi Marifat ar-Rijal, Page 277, Author: ‘Allamah al-Hilli

مالك الاشتر قدس الله روحه ورضي الله عنه، جليل القدر، عظيم المنزلة، كان اختصاصه بعلي (عليه السلام) اظهر من ان يخفى، وتأسف

(أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) بموته، وقال: لقد كان لي كما كنت لرسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله.

Summary: ‘Ali (ra) said, when Maalik al-Ashtar died: “He was to me as I was to Rasul Allah (saw)”

end of quote ————————————————————-

Comment: If we apply Shia logic, Malik al-Ashtar was the successor of Ali because Shia claim that Ali was successor of the Prophet (saw) since Prophet (saw) said “you are to me like Harun was to Musa”. Now, Ali says the same thing to Malik al-Ashtar.

    You’ve nailed yourself brother. That’s because there is a slight difference in the two statements if you happen to be keen .
