عنوان مقاله [English]
This writing attempts to explain the Shi’ites viewpoint regarding the Imamate of Imam Ali (peace be upon him) based on the Qur’anic verse of Wilaya and tries to prove this claim by going through these three premises:
1. The word innama (surely) used in the above verse has a restrictive function.
2. Proving that the word Wali in the above verse has the meaning of prior in tenure.
3. Proving that the wilaya verse was revealed regarding Imam Ali (peace be upon him).
