I wonder whether the Mail's headlines could be wrong; perhaps it should have read:
PAS Syura Council to decide on DAP ties after the Battle of Badr.
Caliph Ali ibn Abi Talib, bravest of Prophet Mohammad's generals
Above scene shows him leading the Prophet's army to victory at the Battle of Badr
A cousin and son-in-law of the Prophet he was said to Prophet Mohammad's rightful heir, and that the Prophet had anointed him as successor
He lost the caliphate to Abu Bakr in a swift bloodless coup d'etat while he was busy washing the Prophet's body for burial
He eventually and reluctantly accepted the appointment of 4th Caliph, but 5 years later was assassinated with a poison-coated sword while he was prostrating in a Fajr (dawn) prayer in the Great Mosque of Kufa.
His descendants and followers became Shia Muslims
