Battle with Imam Ali a.s


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


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
