Format: Hardcover
mohammed PBH called himself the city of knowledge, and ali AS its GATES. "whosoever wishes to enter the city, should enter through its gates".
this book is a window to the mind that was the "gate" of the city of knowledge. a must read not only for muslims, but those who search the meaning of life and wisdom.

Format: Paperback
After the Holy Quran, this is the most important book to read imho. Imam Ali bin Abi Talib's discourses and letters cover the following topics:

- Theological and metaphysical issues
- Mystic path and worship
- Government and social justice
- Ahlul bayt and the issue of caliphate
- Wisdom and admonition; the world and worldiness
- Heroism and bravery
- Prayers and invocation
- Social philosophy
- Morality and self-discipline
- ... and a host of other topics

Best,

It's missing many of the sermons, sayings and letters from the Arabic version.

Format: Paperback
A word of caution , small people appropriate the words of great people according to their own capacities of understanding and concern.
Hadrat Ali (RA) is loved and honoured by muslims and non muslims alike , and his talks & letters contain so many jewels and doors of spirituality that no one can afford to reduce them to a purely political, historical or social level, which is unfortunately exactly what the publishers of this edition have done.
Each talk is followed by an Shia diatribe aimed only at propogating their own limited ideology rather than at elevating the readers spiritual level & closeness to God.
