The birth of Imam Ali (AS) inside the Ka’bah has been narrated
by many of leading Sunni Ulama in their books. Today when you hear from some enemies of Ahlul Bayt (AS) denying or doubting this fact, you should advise them to

(AS) was born inside the Ka’bah. These are just few example:

(Karramallah Wajha) inside the Ka’bah.
2. The well known Sunni scholar Allamah Badakhshi in his book
Miftaah An Najah (page no. 20), he stated that no one was born inside
the Bait al Haram except Ali ibn Abi Talib and no one will be born

ibn Abi Talib (AS).
