as salam alaikum

the evidences that some people brought forth to say that the picture  of Imam 'Ali, peace be upon him, as seen in certain areas, is the actual images of him, like the descripition of general Imam's features in some books or the vision of the Imam in a dream, are insufficient to establish the reliability of such claim.
