ghadir sermon

The holy Prophet (s): "Anyone I am his master (Wali), then 'Ali (a) is his master."

Hawzah News Agency – The ninth part of Al-Ghadīr Sermon is presented to you dear readers:

مَعاشِرَالنّاسِ، إِنّی قَدْبَیَّنْتُ لَکُمْ وَأَفْهَمْتُکُمْ، وَ هذا عَلِی یُفْهِمُکُمْ بَعْدی. أَلاوَإِنِّی عِنْدَ انْقِضاءِ خُطْبَتی أَدْعُوکُمْ إِلی مُصافَقَتی عَلی بَیْعَتِهِ وَ الإِقْرارِبِهِ، ثُمَّ مُصافَقَتِهِ بَعْدی. أَلاوَإِنَّی قَدْ بایَعْتُ الله وَ عَلِی قَدْ بایَعَنی. وَأَنَا آخِذُکُمْ بِالْبَیْعَةِ لَهُ عَنِ الله عَزَّوَجَلَّ. (إِنَّ الَّذینَ یُبایِعُونَکَ إِنَّما یُبایِعُونَ الله، یَدُالله فَوْقَ أَیْدیهِمْ. فَمَنْ نَکَثَ فَإِنَّما یَنْکُثُ عَلی نَفْسِهِ، وَ مَنْ أَوْفی بِما عاهَدَ عَلَیْهُ الله فَسَیُؤْتیهِ أَجْراً عَظیماً).

“O people! I have illuminated you of God’s Meaning, and made you comprehend everything, and after I am gone, it is Ali’s duty to make you know [how to do your duty].

Now, after my sermon is ended, I shall invite you, as a sign of your faithfulness, to shake my hand, then Ali’s hand, as a sign of surrendering to him and accepting his ‘Leadership’!

Know that I have sworn with God an allegiance and Ali has sworn with me an allegiance; and now, on behalf of God the Mighty, Majestic [Himself], I shall ask for your allegiance with Ali:

“[O Messenger!] For sure, those who swear allegiance with you, in fact, they swear allegiance with God: God's Hand is above their hands; for any person, who breaks his oath, he does harm to his own soul; and anyone who fulfills his oath with God, he will be bestowed a great reward by God.’"

Al-Ghadīr Sermon:

Al-Ghadīr Sermon (Arabic: خطبة الغدير) is a sermon delivered by the Prophet (s) where he (s) introduced 'Ali (a) as the Wali (guardian) of Muslims. The prophet (s) delivered this sermon on Dhu l-Hijja 18 of 10/March 19, 632) on the return from Hajjat al-Wida' [Hajj of Farewell] in a place called Ghadir Khumm. Many Shi'a and Sunni scholars have narrated this sermon.

Al-Ghadir sermon is one of the proofs Shi'a bring for the guardianship of Imam 'Ali (a) after the Prophet (s). Shi'a also support their claim with other proofs and evidences.

The Hadith al-Ghadir is a part of this sermon where the Prophet (s) says, "Anyone I am his master (Wali), then 'Ali (a) is his master."

Since, this phrase is narrated by more than 110 companions of the Prophet (s) and 84 Followers, it can be said that this hadith has been narrated as mutawatir (frequent).

Allamah 'Abd al-Husayn Amini collected all the references for this sermon and the Hadith al-Ghadir from Sunni sources and published them together with all other supportive reasons for the event of Ghadir in 11 volumes in his book al-Ghadir.
