This is one of the greatest sermons of Ameerul Momineen (asws). What makes this sermon so special is that Moula Ali (asws) delivered it on the Day of Ghadeer. Unfortunately, the enemies of Wilayat have tried to remove this sermon from the history. When they found they were unable to do so, they attempted to change the words of this sermon, but you must know that batil (falsehood) will never overcome haq (truth). The original Arabic text was found in a very old transcript . Alhamdulillah it is a great blessing of Masoomeen (asws) that we were chosen to translate this sermon and share it with you. In this sermon, Moula Ali (asws) says that it is wajib (obligatory) upon all to convey this message to others and that no excuse for not doing so will be accepted. May Moula (asws) increase the iman (faith) and marifat (recognition) of all of us. Ameen.
