Amir al-Mu’minin Ali ibn Abi Talib, رضي الله تعالى عنه, was known for his exceptional miracles.

Among these is what was related from the Prophet,صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم , when on the day of Khaybar, he said,

“I will give the flag to a man رضي الله تعالى عنه whom Allah and His Messenger love.

Allah will conquer it by his hands and he will not flee.”

It was as the Prophet, صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم said.

Abu Rafi`رضي الله تعالى عنه said, “We went out with Ali ibn Abi Talib, رضي الله تعالى عنه when the Messenger of Allah, صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم dispatched him with his flag against Khaybar.

When he reached near the fortress, its people came out against him and he engaged them in battle.

One of the Jews struck at him and knocked his shield from his hands.

Caliph Ali رضي الله تعالى عنه then grasped the door of the fortress, which was made from iron and used it as a shield.

It remained in his hand as he fought the Jews until Allah conquered the fortress by his hands.

After Caliph Ali رضي الله تعالى عنه had conquered Khaybar he threw the door a distance of eighty feet behind his back.”

Imam Al-Bayhaqi related that after Caliph Ali tossed the door aside seventy men gathered to return the door back to its place and found it difficult.

{Shaykh Ahmad Ibn Hajr al-Haytami said in his as-Sawa`iq ‘l-Muharaqa that Caliph Ali رضي الله تعالى عنه said,

“I did not snatch the door of Khaybar from its place by bodily power but by divine power.”}
