Jashan-e-Eid-e-Ghadeer Mubarak

Jashan-e-Eid-e-Ghadeer Mubarak

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 loosing 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.
