Day Eight.. My hero

 Imam Ali though inspires me in every way possible and everyday i learn more and more which makes my love for him increase, not only as a character who went down in history but as a person who was a husband, a friend and a father. It does not seem hard to have mercy on the ones whom we love, but this is the man who had mercy even on his enemies. After the prophets death he was a figure who pushed forward the Islamic Ummah. The one whom the prophet said about him "I am the city of knowledge and 'Ali is its gate" As i read his sermons i can't help but wonder at his eloquence in speech and knowledge. I'd encourage everyone to learn more about him especially as youth he stands as a great model for us in ever essence of the word. 

Disclaimer: for all those who tell me what about the prophet, Having the prophet as a hero is a given.
