(Fatwa: 251/279/H=02/1437)

(1) Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, is his name while Haidar is his title. This title was not given by the Holy Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, rather it was given by the mother of Hadhrat Ali. Allama Ibn Qayyim, may Allah have mercy upon him, has explained it in Zaad al-Ma’ad.
