Hujjat al-Islam wa al-Muslimin Seyyed Mahdi Haerizadeh, during special program in celebration of Ghadir, which was attended by the Grand Custodian of Astan Quds Razavi, religious scholars, the executive directors of the province and Astan Quds Razavi, and a vast number of pilgrims and neighbors of Razavi Illuminated Court pointing that the Wilayat is the precondition for the acceptance of worship, said, “All the ten minor principles of religion are the subset of Tavalla and Tabarra, because for someone who does not believe in the Wilayat, the rest of their deeds will be shaken.”
“Amir al-mu'minin is truth and the spirit of religion, because the prayer that is performed lacking Wilayat, will not be considered as ‘prayer shall ascend the pious’” he reiterated.
“In the day of Ghadir Khumm, the Prophet (S.A.W), held more than 120 thousand people on the road to deliver the most important part of his mission, and many Sunni scholars have expressed this historic event in their narrative books” the expert of religious affairs said.
“Some argue that the Prophet (S.A.W), in that 120-thousand-people gathering, showed his affection and friendship to Imam Ali (A.S.); however, in response to this claim, it must be said that Imamate and Wilayat of Imam Ali (A.S.) was the most important part of the mission of the Prophet (S.A.W), which on the orders of God on the day of Ghadir took place, and the glory, magnificence and precision of the messenger of God to declare the allegiance of people to Imam Ali (A.S.) indicates the introduction of his successor after the demise of the messenger of God” he said.
“In Ghadir sermon, more than forty times the name of Imam Ali (A.S.), forty sentences including the centrality of Alawi and Mahdawi government, as well as four times the beautiful name of ‘Mahdi’ are mentioned” Hujjat al-Islam wa al-Muslimin Haerizadeh said on the delicacies of Ghadir sermon.
“The Holy Prophet in Ghadir Khumm event, recommended everyone to tell the sermon of Ghadir and the Wilayat of Imam Ali (A.S.) to absentees and future generations, because the death, life and worship of a true Muslim depends on the acceptance of Wilayat” he enunciated.
“In Karbala incident, many of enemies of Imam Hussein (A.S.), were people of praying and fasting to the extent that in some historical narrations it is cited that some of enemies for killing Imam Hussein (A.S.) had vowed ten camels, and this diversion roots from lack of knowledge to Imamate and Wilayat” the orator of Razavi Holy Shrine reminded, recounting the knowledge to Imamate and Wilayat, one of the tasks of believers.
“Some are looking for introducing the fateful event of Ghadir as a fiction, whereas guiding humanity is tied to the Day of Ghadir Khumm” he uttered.
According to Hujjat al-Islam wa al-Muslimin Haerizadeh, Imam Ali (A.S.) and Hazrat Zahra (S.A.), after heart-rending demise of the messenger of God (S.A.W), went to the doors of Muhajerin and Ansar and reminded the story of Ghadir and succession of Imam Ali (A.S.) but unfortunately, many refused to accept Wilayat.
“Imam Ali (A.S.), who is the oppressed of the world, was bothered and troubled a lot in the governing period to the degree that he wished God to ‘hasten death’” he remarked.
