Saying '`Aly (may Allah honor his face)'

Q 5: What is the degree of authenticity of the people's saying: " `Aly, may Allah honor his face" ?

A: There is no basis (i.e. from the Book or Sunnah) for specifying this saying to `Aly (may Allah be pleased with him). Rather, it is of the excessive reverence of Shiites for him.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
