Habib 'Ali Zain al-'Abideen al-Jifri was born of a noble prophetic lineage. His great grandfathers include, 'Ali Zain Al-'Abideen, the son of Imam al-Hussein, the son of Imam 'Ali ibn Abi Talib and the Sayyidah Fatimah, the daughter of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh). Habib 'Ali has studied for over 20 years at the hands of many great and prestigious scholars, connecting him with authentic chains of transmission and learning all the way to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) himself. He is an explosive and motivating speaker, a caller to the way of Allah and His Messenger (pbuh), and a spiritual educator of the highest caliber.
