speaking strictly islamically ali's arrogance and claims of 'i am the greatest' are frowned upon. Ali during his prime also didn't show many signs of humility which is what islam encourages, its all very easy to acknowledge the presence of a divine being or a higher power when you're old and crippled but he never seemed to acknowledge it as often during his youthful days as he does now.
muslims say 'god is the greatest' several times during the call to prayer and prayer itself and ali's claims of 'i am the greatest' are generally not well received by alot of muslims.
