Went to Kaohsiung city for celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival with my family. Took this capture at the Martyrs’ Shrine of Kaohsiung after the Typhoon Meranti left.

“By the  Lord of the Ka'bah, I have succeeded.”

The words that Hazrat Ali ebn Abi Taleb (AS) said, after beeing hit with a poisoned sword during prayer. Today, the 21th Ramadan, marks the Imam’s (AS) martyr. A day where the Umah lost the best man after the Prophet (S), lost justice, the door to Allah (SWT) and the merciful father who all orphans are missing.
