Ghadir Feast in light of Ahadith

By: K. Safavi

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. 

  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
