The present paper aims to study the lessons of history from the viewpoint of Imam Ali (PBUH). Oral history, history as a science or scientific history are all treasuries of truths and information about human past lives. Given this description of history, can it be of any benefit to future generations? Can one make a path from past to future by learning the lessons of history? If so, what are the reasons? What are the main factors that generalize the historical traditions and turn them into rules?
This library study aims to answer such questions. It was found out that according to monotheistic worldview, the world and thus man has a creator, and that society is of no function and man is of no independence without God’s will. Therefore, it is necessary to obey the rules set by Him for human life. History, as a result how man and the world behave, can be regarded as a valuable source of learning. Nahj al-Balaghah, which is an important treasury of Imam Ali’s sayings, as well as other Alavi sources contain invaluable lessons of history some of which were discussed in the present paper.
