The Truth is Always with ‘Ali (‘a)

Question: Is it correct to say that the truth is always with Imam ‘Ali (‘a)?
Concise answer:

Umm Salamah and ‘Āishah (who were two wives of the Prophet (ṣ)) have narrated: We heard the Prophet (ṣ) saying: ‘Ali is with the truth and the truth is with ‘Ali, and they will never separate from one another until they reach me next to the Fountain of Kawthar

Detailed answer:

Umm Salamah and ‘Āishah (who were two wives of the Prophet (ṣ)) have narrated: We heard the Prophet (ṣ) saying: ‘Ali is with the truth and the truth is with ‘Ali, and they will never separate from one another until they reach me next to the Fountain of Kawthar.

This tradition has been narrated in many of the famous sourcebooks of the Ahl al-Sunnah. ‘Allāmah Amīnī has narrated this tradition in a very detailed manner in his third volume of Al-Ghadīr.[1] The famous commentator of the Ahl al-Sunnah, Fakhr Rāzī has also mentioned in his Tafsīr Kabīr (under the section on Surah Ḥamd) that: ‘Ali ibn Abī Ṭālib would recite his Bismillāh out loud and this has been narrated in a Tawātur manner. In turn, whoever follows Imam ‘Ali (‘a) in his religion has been guided to the truth and the reason behind this can be found in the words of the Prophet (ṣ) who said: Oh God, turn the truth upon the axis of ‘Ali’s being however he may turn.[2] Keep in mind that this tradition is saying that the truth turns upon the very existence of Imam ‘Ali (‘a).[3]
