Aftaab e Wilayat means Sun of Leadership – Aftaab means sun and Wilayat means Leadership.
According to Shia and Ahle Tasannun sources Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a.s.) is the shining sun and the true successor of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.). This fact is so widely documented in books of both sects that it is as evident as the Sun. Hence the name Aftaab e Wilayat (Sun of Leadership).
May Allah (twt) shower his choicest blessings on Mohammed (sawa) and his pure Progeny ( ams).
