إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ(مائده: 55)
Leadership of Imam ALI (pbuh)

Your guardian is only Allah, His Apostle, and the faithful who maintain the prayer and give the zakat while bowing down.

Different exegeses have been proposed for the verse of the velayat. Fariqain commentators have proposed two general views on the exegesis of the verse and Shiite commentators consider the verse as referring to Imam Ali`s (a) wilayat and Imamate. Most Sunnis, however, have considered the wilayat carrying by this verse to be absolute and attributed it to all believers. Since the verse introduces positive cases of wilayat, and the topic is one of the fundamental knowledgeable and religious beliefs, it seems necessary for the verse to be more analyzed to attain a correct comment in the field. The study, analyzing Fariqain commentators` opinions of the verse, seeks to find Quranic meaning of wali and validity of its true case. Finally, Shiite view has been approved; the view upon which wali means guardianship and the true case of those who believe has been known to be Imam Ali (a).
