Ali Name Meaning

Ali is one of the name of Allah the exalted. The holy book of Quran states: " وَهُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيمُ" means He is the High, the Great and also is used by the meaning of severe, dear and strong. Ali is the name of first Imam of Shia muslim and his teknonym is Abu l-Hasan (father of Hasan) and Abu Turab (father of dust) he is known as Mortadha, haidar karrar and Amir al-Mu'minin (Commander of the Faithful) as well. The imam was cousin of prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and his son in law. He left a complete role model of Islamic ruling and government behind during his 5-year leadership which is collected in his precious work Nahj al-balāgha. If ones by the name of Ali keep reverence of this name thus he will enjoy good nature, humanity, advocacy of justice and interest in truth of creation and Allah will have special blessings upon this man and his family, in honor of Ali name. Furthermore, people who think of the oppression and loneliness that Imam Ali went through by calling their children Ali name and bring their hearts closer to the focus of his guardianship, thus God the Almighty will shine the light of his knowledge in their hearts and Allah will make the immaculate commander of the faithful imam Ali (a.s) a means of their passing across the Sarat Bridge. If those who are Ali keep sound religious purity and save state of Islamic ablution, Ali which is one of the God’s name will guide their soul and will fill their inner with the divine knowledge and they will be a byword for intelligence and seeking knowledge and also they benefit from good mental health and strong considerable spirit. Expressly in the day of judgment that all hearts are shaking and eyes are crying, the intercession of our guardian will cover them. O Allah for sake of Ali make me lover, keep me away from the all worldly pleasure, grant me only one drop of his knowledge and make my small heart an ocean.

My name is Alison, but i go by Ali. People always pronounce it like the male name, or they spell it Allie. But I do like that It's different and short.

Ali is my husband's name, and it means "noble man". The name is of Arabic origins, and the name itself is a masculine adjective, so it always surprises me when a girl is named "Ali", because the feminine version of Ali is "Aliyah" but Ali is n't a girl's name. Most people pronounce it almost correctly "a-lee" with a short "a". I love this name, and there are several people we know who are also named Ali. And from celebrities there is Mohammed Ali Clay.

You can never ever call a girl Ali. It's a male name and very masculine which obviously is an Arabic MALE name.

My really name is Alexandria and this is what i use as a nickname. I think It's a good name for boys and girls, depending on how you pronounce it. I prefer it to be said like "alley" in'tead of like "Muhammad Ali" due to me being a girl.
