Battle with Imam Ali a.s

Q:

The persons who attempted battle with Imam Ali a.s are considered in which category?

A:

Salaamun Alaykum.
Thank you for your question. There were three revolts during the life of Imam Ali (as). The Khawarij who are referred to as the Mariqin; Muawiya and his army from Damascus who are called the Qasitin; and those who pledged allegiance to the Imam (as) and then broke that pact in the battle of Jamal who were called the Nakithin.
 
May you always be successful
