From:
Tarikh al-Rusul wal muluk by Abu Jafar Muhammad b Jarir al-Tabri (839-923), is by common consent the most important universal history produced in the world of Islam.

This volume 16 of Tabaris great 39-volume history treats the Caliphate of Ali I, 656-651

This volume of al-Tabaris history deals with the traumatic breakup of the Muslim community following the assassination of the Caliph Uthman. It begins with the first seriously contested succession to the caliphate, that of Ali, and proceeds inexorably through the rebellion of Aishah, Talhah, and al-Zubayr, to the Battle of the Camel, the first time Muslim army faced Muslim army. It thus deals with the very first violent response to the two central problems of Muslim history: who is the rightful leader, and which is the true community? It is a section with the weightiest implications for the Muslim interpretation of history, wide open to special pleading.

There are the Shia who depict Ali as a spiritual leader fighting against false accusations and the worldly ambitious. Conversely, there are those who would depict him or his followers in a negative light. There are also the Abbasid historians, who, though anti-Umayyad, must balance a reverence for the Prophets household (ahl al-bayt) with a denunciation of Alid anti establishmentarianism. All these points of view, and more, are represented in al-Tabaris compilation, illustrating the difficulty the Muslim community as a whole has faced in coming to terms with these disastrous events
