Washington Irving on Hazrat Ali

(1783-1859)  Well-known as the “first American man of letters”.

q       "He was of the noblest branch of the noble race of Koreish.  He possessed the three qualities most prized by Arabs: courage, eloquence, and munificence.  His intrepid spirit had gained him from the prophet the appellation of The Lion of God, specimens of his eloquence remain in some verses and sayings preserved among the Arabs; and his munificence was manifested in sharing among others, every Friday, what remained in the treasury.  Of his magnanimity, we have given repeated instances; his noble scorn of everything false and mean, and the absence in his conduct of everything like selfish intrigue."

[Lives of the Successors of Mahomet, London, 1850, p. 165]
