In the field of knowledge, no one can come to close the services of Islam. Through the light of Knowledge, Islam awakened the life of Arabs in Arabia where literacy was almost absent and people felt superiority in their heritage rather than in being well-educated and cultured.
There were around 17 people in pre-Islamic Makkah who were able to read and write according to Tabari, the great historian, and commentator on the Quran. Quran has emphasized the importance of knowledge. Knowledge is called Light and ignorance as darkness in the Quran. There are more than 800 places in the Quran where knowledge is discussed.
In the period of the Prophet (P.B.U.H), believers used to looking for three sources of knowledge i.e. the Holy Quran, the Prophet (PBUH) and Hazrat Ali (R.A). The Quran present Allah’s revelations. While Prophet’s traditions, hadith, and sunnah were another source of knowledge. Nahj al-Balagha (Highway of Oration) is the book in which his lectures, speeches, his letters as the caliph to his governors are collected. The Prophet once said, “I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate.” This saying has aptly proved the position of Hazrat Ali in the field of knowledge. Hazrat (R.A) Ali contributed abundantly to Muslim scholarly development.

The knowledge of Prophet was inborn rather than attained but Ali’s knowledge was founded on what the Prophet (P.B.U.H) passed on to him as his prophecy for a humane society. The Prophet (PBUH) was the perfect human being, and Ali stood next to him. Therefore, for Sufis, both were great sources of motivation. Hazrat Ali (R.A) always followed the footsteps of the Prophet (P.B.U.H). Like Prophet (P.B.U.H), he was also never involved in the allurement of this world.
The letter of Hazrat Ali (R.A) to Malik bin Ashter, the governor of Egypt, is considered a masterwork of doctrines of governance. He instructed Malik: “Do not say, ‘I am your overlord and master and that you should, therefore, bow to my commands’, as that will corrupt your heart … Let your mind respect through your actions the rights of God and the rights of human beings … for otherwise, you will be doing injustice to yourself and to humanity. “He also advised Malik bin Ashter to “care for them (the people) with the tenderness with which you care for your children, and do not talk before them of any good you might have done to them, nor disregard any expression of affection which they show in return….”The chief justice should be selected,” Ali wrote, “from the best of people who cannot be intimidated; he should be one who does not err too often; who does not turn his back on the right path; who is not self-interested or greedy.”
Therefore, it can be concluded that Hazrat Ali’s (R.A) advocated that power must be used for the welfare of human beings. His noble idea of governance was not promoted as it deserved. He faced all challenges reading it through his life, and attained the supreme status of martyrdom for the superior cause on the 21st of Ramadan.
