Virtues of Eid-e-Ghadeer: Mola Ali (asws) said, ‘On this day the spending of one Dirham is equivalent to the spending of a thousand on any other day. Any more than this is in the Hands of Providence of Allah (azwj), Who (azwj) has Called people to fast on this day. If an advanced aged person were to fast during the days and spend the nights in worshiping, from the inception of this world to its end, even then he would not be able to equate to the reward of keeping fast on this very day; and whoever were to fulfil the need of a ‘Momin’ (believing brother) and be good to him on this day then he would be like the one who fasts on this day and worships during its night. Whoever provides the meanings of breaking fast of a single ‘Momin’ in the evening (of Ghadeer) it is like one who is ‘Fayam, Fayam, Fayam’, (Until Amir-ul-Momaneen (asws) mentioned this ten times). One person got up and asked: ‘Ya Amir-ul-Momaneen (asws)! What is one Fayam?’ Amir-ul-Momaneen (asws) replied: ‘One hundred thousand Prophets, Righteous and Martyrs!’ Even if one were to provide means for breaking fast of many believing men and women, then I (asws) give the guarantee that he will be safeguarded from losing his disbelief and being struck by poverty; and if he were to die on its night, or on its day or any of the days or nights in the forthcoming year, provided he had not committed any major sins, then his (enormous) reward for this would be obligatory upon Allah (azwj).On this day, if one gives a loan to someone or helps him, then I promise you that Allah (azwj) will keep him safe from great calamities. When you meet each other on this day then greet each other with ‘Salaams’ (salutations) and handshakes, and exchange gifts with each other. The present should relate this message to those who are absent, and the rich should be benevolent with the poor and the strong should be lenient with the weak. The Holy Prophet (saww) had commanded me to narrate this day’s virtues regularly.’
Sudeer reports, once I met Imam Mohmmed Baqirasws in Kaabah, Imamasws held my arm and took me in front of Kaabah and said: “. As Allahazwj Says (20:82): “But, without doubt, I am (also) the One who forgives again and again, to those who repent, believe, and do right, who,- in fine, are ready to receive true guidance.”
Imamasws pointed to his chest and said: “Our Wilayat and submission”. And then said: “O Sudeer! Shall I show you who are the ‘ones’ who stop people from adopting the ‘True Religion’ of Allahazwj? Imamasws, then pointed out towards Abu Hanifa and Sufyaan Syrian, who were present in front of us. Imamasws said: “Look these are the ‘ones’ who stop people from the religion of Allahazwj, as these people have neither any guidance from Allahazwj, nor a proof from the Holy Book, their minds are corrupt. If these types of people would stay at home, the general public would wonder around (in the research of religion) and after failing to find anyone who would narrate only with reference to Allahazwj and His Prophetsaww, they would definitely turn to usasws and weasws would tell them the true News ‘Akhbar’, which we have heard from the Prophetsaww and Allahazwj. (Al Kafi, vol. 1, pp. 392).
وَ بِالْإِسْنَادِ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الْقَطَّانُ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ الْحُسَيْنِيُّ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ أَحْمَدُ بْنُ عِيسَى بْنِ مُوسَى بْنِ أَبِي الْعِجْلِيُّ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ الْعَزْرَمِيُّ قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ حَاتِمٍ الْمِنْقَرِيُّ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا شَرِيكٌ عَنْ سَالِمٍ الْأَفْطَسِ عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ جُبَيْرٍ عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ:
And by the chain, said, ‘Ahmad Bin Al Hassan Al Qatan narrated to us, from Abdul Rahman Bin Muhammad Al Husayni, from Abu Ja’far Ahmad Bin Isa Bin Abu Musa Al Ijaly, from Muhammad Bin Ahmad Bin Abdullah Bin Ziyad Al Armany, from Ali Bin Hatim Al Munqary, from Shareek, from Salim Al Aftas, from Saeed Bin Jubeyr, from Ibn Abbas who said,
قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ لِعَلِيٍّ ع يَا عَلِيُّ شِيعَتُكَ هُمُ الْفَائِزُونَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَمَنْ أَهَانَ وَاحِداً مِنْهُمْ فَقَدْ أَهَانَكَ وَ مَنْ أَهَانَكَ فَقَدْ أَهَانَنِي وَ مَنْ أَهَانَنِي أَدْخَلَهُ اللَّهُ نَارَ جَهَنَّمَ فِيهَا وَ بِئْسَ الْمَصِيرُ
‘Rasool-Allahsaww said to Aliasws: ‘O Aliasws! Yourasws Shias, they would be the successful ones on the Day of Judgment. So the one who offends any one of them so he has offended youasws, and the one who offends youasws so he has offended mesaww, and the one who offends mesaww, Allahazwj will Enter him into the Fire of Hell, and it is the evil destination’.
يَا عَلِيُّ أَنْتَ مِنِّي وَ أَنَا مِنْكَ وَ رُوحُكَ مِنْ رُوحِي وَ طِينَتُكَ مِنْ طِينَتِي وَ شِيعَتُكَ خُلِقُوا مِنْ فَضْلِ طِينَتِنَا فَمَنْ أَحَبَّهُمْ فَقَدْ أَحَبَّنَا وَ مَنْ أَبْغَضَهُمْ فَقَدْ أَبْغَضَنَا وَ مَنْ عَادَاهُمْ فَقَدْ عَادَانَا وَ مَنْ وَدَّهُمْ فَقَدْ وَدَّنا
O Aliasws! Youasws are from mesaww and Isaww am from youasws, and yourasws soul is from mysaww soul, and yourasws essence is from mysaww essence, and yourasws Shias were Created from the remnants of ourasws clays. Therefore, the one who loves them so he has loved usasws, and the one who hates them so he has hated usasws, and the one who is inimical to them so he is inimical to usasws, and the one who is cordial to them so he is cordial to usasws.
يَا عَلِيُّ إِنَّ شِيعَتَكَ مَغْفُورٌ لَهُمْ عَلَى مَا كَانَ مِنْهُمْ مِنْ ذُنُوبٍ وَ عُيُوبٍ
O Aliasws! Yourasws Shias they would be Forgiven for whatever was in them from the sins and faults.
يَا عَلِيُّ أَنَا الشَّفِيعُ لِشِيعَتِكَ غَداً إِذَا قُمْتُ الْمَقَامَ الْمَحْمُودَ فَبَشِّرْهُمْ بِذَلِكَ
O Aliasws! Isaww would intercede for yourasws Shias tomorrow when Isaww stand at the place of the most Praised Oneazwj (المقام المحمود), therefore give them the glad tidings of that.
يَا عَلِيُّ شِيعَتُكَ شِيعَةُ اللَّهِ وَ أَنْصَارُكَ أَنْصَارُ اللَّهِ وَ أَوْلِيَاؤُكَ أَوْلِيَاءُ اللَّهِ وَ حِزْبُكَ حِزْبُ اللَّهِ
O Aliasws! Yourasws Shias are the Shias of Allahazwj and yourasws helpers are the Helpers of Allahazwj, and they are the friends of Allahazwj, and yourasws party is the party of Allahazwj.
يَا عَلِيُّ سَعِدَ مَنْ تَوَلَّاكَ وَ شَقِيَ مَنْ عَادَاكَ
O Aliasws! Fortunate is the one who befriends youasws and miserable is the one who is inimical to youasws.
يَا عَلِيُّ لَكَ كَنْزٌ فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَ أَنْتَ ذُو قَرْنَيْهَا.
O Aliasws! For youasws are the treasures in the Paradise, and youasws the one with its companions’. (Bashaarat Al Mustafasaww Li Shia Al Murtazaasws – Part 1 H 30)
