Really?  Doesn't work for me.

 -- *scratch* buffer --

 (shell-command ". ~/.bashrc; ll")
 -| /bin/bash: ll: command not found
 => 127

 -- end of buffer --

yet the alias 'll' is defined in my ~/.bashrc, like so:

 alias ll="ls -l"

I also get the same result interactively.

 M-x shell-command RET . ~/.bashrc; ll RET

Could you provide more detail as to how you access your aliases?
