A seems best.

You mean A is least worst right?!

Hmm, I was actually leaning towards C.
While in A "dispute over...Ali, should continue" sounds right, I do not like the "Prophet Muhammadâ€™s son-in-law, Ali" part.

C - "was going to" seems grammatically right to me, although it seems to subtely change the meaning of the sentence.

Damager, can you please explain why C is wrong?
