Dr. Henry Stubbe on Hazrat Ali

(1632-1676)  Classicist, polemicist, physician, and philosopher.

q       “He had a contempt of the world, its glory and pomp, he feared God much, gave many alms, was just in all his actions, humble and affable; of an exceeding quick wit and of an ingenuity that was not common, he was exceedingly learned, not in those sciences that terminate in speculations but those which extend to practice.”

[An Account of the Rise and Progress of Mahometanism, 1705, p. 83]
