Extends greetings to Muslim Ummah on this occasion

Srinagar, July 17 (KNS): Extended his warm greetings to the whole Muslim Community on the occasions of Eid e Gadhir, Youth Socio Political Leader and Incharge Social Media JKPC Mudasir Karim has said that this occasion has an important significance in Muslim history which commemorates the pivotal gathering at Ghadir Khumm, when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) based upon the divine command from Allah, designated Hazrat Ali (AS) as his successor.

He said that in historical sources, it is recorded that on the way back to Medina after performing a pilgrimage to Mecca, the Prophet received a revelation — Surah al-Ma’ida (sura 5 ayat 67) — that we recite in our daily prayers:

“O Messenger, deliver [to the people] what has been revealed to you from your Lord, and if you do not do so, then you will not have delivered His message …”

While adding that there are numerous reliable hadith sources — both Shia and Sunni — record this event, which took place in the year 632 CE. Upon receiving this revelation, the Holy Prophet stopped at an oasis known as Ghadir Khumm and addressed a large gathering of Muslims who had accompanied him. It is said that The Prophet proclaimed: “
“ Man kunto maula fa-haza Aliyun Maula ” meaning: “He whose Mawla I am, Ali is his Mawla.” The Prophet then prayed: “O Allah, be a friend of whoever is his friend and extend your support to those who support him.”

Mudasir elaborated that according to Shia belief, by declaring Hazrat Ali as Mawla after him, the Prophet transferred his own spiritual authority bestowed upon him by Allah to Hazrat Ali, making him — and all the Imams that follow — the Amirul Mu’minin, or Master of the Believers and on the instructions  from Prophet Muhammad, Hazrat Ali (AS) received baiyat (the oath of allegiance), from the Muslims assembled there.,

In commemorating Eid-e Ghadir, the Jamat celebrates the seminal event of Ghadir Khumm, reaffirming our allegiance to the Imam-of-the-Time as the direct lineal successor and inheritor of the authority of Hazrat Ali, Mudasir reaffirmed and said that it is in this context we need to follow the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Imam Ali (AS) to put our life on the path of truth and tranquillity.

He also prayed for peace, and brotherhood in the state on this pious occasion.(KNS)
