A dignified feast
Hazrat Imam Ali ibn-e-Abi Talib (as) said: The Ghadir feast is a day
which dignity is great. On this day, blessings fell from heaven; the
ranks of those who were eligible to rise was enhanced; God's proofs
became clear and manifest; today was the day when religion was
perfected; a day fit to take the oath of allegiance.
A great feast
Imam Jafar bin Muhammad Al-Sadiq (as) was asked if there is any
Eid other than 'Friday', 'Qurban', & 'Fitr'? The Imam peace be on him
replied: "Yes, the greatest one! It is a day in which the Prophet (saww)
appointed Amir-ul-Momineen Hazrat Ali ibn-e-Abi Talib (as) as his
successor & said: 'Whoever I am his master, then Ali is his master.'"
A felicitous feast
Hazrat Imam Jafar bin Muhammad Al-Sadiq (as) said: By God if
people knew the real virtue of the Ghadir Khum feast, the angels would
shake hand with them ten times a day and what the God would grant to
them could not be counted.
A refulgent feast
Hazrat Abu Abdullah Imam Jafar bin Muhammad Al-Sadiq (as) said:
Ghadir Khum feast in the midst of Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Azha and Friday
is like the moon amid the stars.
One of the four divine feasts
Imam Jafar bin Muhammad Al-Sadiq (as) said: On the Day of
Resurrection, four days will be summoned before God like the bride who
hurries into the wedding chamber. These are Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Adha,
Friday and Ghadir Khum feast.
A heavenly feast
Hazrat Imam Ali bin Mousa Al-Reza (as) said: My father told me
from his father Hazrat Imam Jafar bin Muhammad Al-Sadiq (as) that the
Ghadir feast is much more famous in heaven than on Earth.
