H. Ali must have been a simple , God fearing great individual , not bothered by any position and not a contender for bypassing senior sahabas like Abubakr, Umer or Othman. He simply sat back and worked with all Caliphs till Finally he was appointed as caliph No. 4 by seniors. What a great and graceful organised Sahabas.
Its the greedy crop of Iranian mullahs erupting from Abbasid clans who made a monster of sectarian islam called Shiaism and called Ali as Maula ALI. ( naoozbillah). These criminals made mockery of deen till today.
Some how, Iranians are still hated around the world as Fanatics and are sanctioned economically to live well with rest of the world.
