Ali also admitted that now he is not rigid with his opinion of Tests being played for five days as the new four-day format could help in getting more people.
However, the pacer's inclusion in the squad for the third Test in Perth looks unlikely, with coach Trevor Bayliss hinting that he is most likely to go with an unchanged squad that slumped to a huge 120-run defeat against Australia at the Adelaide.
Australia will host England in the warm-up contest from December 9 to 10 at the Richardson Park in Perth.
England skipper Joe Root expressed confidence that Moeen would play in the second Test irrespective of he was able to bowl or not.
Moeen, the man of the series in ODI series against West Indies, believes England can retain the Ashes even if Stokes doesn't feature in the five-Test series.
Moeen Ali took 5-69 to settle the fourth and final Test on Monday, giving England a 177-run victory at Old Trafford, a 3-1 series win, and ending a 19-year drought at home against South Africa.
Rain brought early stumps at Old Trafford, and Ali and Stuart Broad will return on Day 4 with a 400-run lead in sight. As it stands, England is still favourite to seal a 3-1 series victory to start the tenure of new captain Joe Root.
Ali's dismissal of South Africa's last three batsmen in three balls across two overs handed England a 239-run victory and a 2-1 series lead ahead of Friday's fourth and final test in Manchester.
South Africa's big lead was built on second-innings half-centuries by opener Dean Elgar (80), Hashim Amla (87) and captain Faf du Plessis (63).
Ali scored 87 and Broad smashed an unbeaten 57 off 47 balls as England added 101 runs to its overnight score before being dismissed for 458.
