    • يَا أَيُّهَا الرَّسُولُ بَلِّغْ مَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ وَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلْ فَمَا بَلَّغْتَ رِسَالَتَهُ وَاللّهُ يَعْصِمُكَ مِنَ النَّاسِ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْكَافِرِينَ 5:67 Some of Sunni references confirming that the revelation of the above verse of Qur’an was right before the speech of Prophet in Ghadir Khum: (1) Tafsir al-Kabir, by Fakhr al-Razi, under commentary of verse 5:67, v12, pp 49-50, narrated on the authorities of Ibn Abbas, al-Bara Ibn Azib, and Muhammad Ibn ‘Ali. (2) Asbab al-Nuzool, by al-Wahidi, p50, narrated on the authorities of Atiyyah and Abu Sa’id al Khudri. (3) Nuzul al-Qur’an, by al-Hafiz Abu Nu’aym narrated on the authorities Abu Sa’id Khudri and Abu Rafi. (4) al-Fusool al Muhimmah, by Ibn Sabbagh al-Maliki al-Makki, p24 (5) Durr al-Manthur, by al-Hafiz al-Suyuti, under commentary of verse 5:67 (6) Fathul Qadir, by al-Shawkani, under commentary of verse 5:67 (7) Fathul Bayan, by Hasan Khan, under commentary of verse 5:67 (8) Shaykh Muhi al-Din al-Nawawi, under commentary of verse 5:67 (9) al-Sirah al-Halabiyah, by Noor al-Din al-Halabi, v3, p301 (10) Tafsir al-Nishaboori v6, p194 Upon receiving the verse, the Prophet (S) stopped on that place (the pond of Khum) which was extremely hot. Then he sent for all people who have been ahead in the way, to come back and waited until all pilgrims who fell behind, arrived and gathered. He ordered Salman (رضي الله عنه) to use rocks and camel toolings to make a pulpit (minbar) so he could make his announcement. It was around noon time in the first of the Fall, and due to the extreme heat in that valley, people were wrapping their robes around their feet and legs, and were sitting around the pulpit, on the hot rocks. On this day the Messenger of Allah spent approximately five ours in this place; three hours of which he was on the pulpit. He recited nearly one hundred verses from The Glorious Qur’an, and for seventy three times reminded and warned people of their deeds and future. Then he gave them a long speech. The following is a part of his speech which has been widely narrated by the Sunni traditionists: The Messenger of Allah declared: "It seems the time approached when I shall be called away (by Allah) and I shall answer that call. I am leaving for you two precious things and if you adhere both of them, you will never go astray after me. They are the Book of Allah and my progeny, that is my Ahlul-Bayt. The two shall never separate from each other until they come to me by the Pool (of Paradise)." Then the Messenger of Allah continued: "Do I not have more right over the believers than what they have over themselves?”People cried and answered: "Yes, O’ Messenger of God.”Then Prophet (S) held up the hand of ‘Ali and said: "Whoever I am his leader (Mawla), ‘Ali is his leader (Mawla). O’ God, love those who love him, and be hostile to those who are hostile to him." ألَسْتُ أولى بالمؤمنين من أنفسهم؟ قالوا بلى يارسول الله. قال: من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه. اللهم وال من والاه و عاد من عاداه. Immediately after the Prophet (S) finished his speech, the following verse of Holy Qur’an was revealed: "Today I have perfected your religion and completed my bounty upon you, and I was satisfied that Islam be your religion.”(Qur’an 5:3) Some of Sunni references which mentioned the revelation of the above verse of Qur’an in Ghadir Khum after the speech of the Prophet: (1) al-Durr al-Manthur, by al-Hafiz Jalaluddin al-Suyuti, v3, p19 (2) Tarikh, by Khatib al-Baghdadi, v8, pp 290,596 from Abu Hurayra (3) Manaqaib, by Ibn Maghazali, p19 (4) History of Damascus, Ibn Asakir, v2, p75 (5) al-Itqan, by al-Suyuti, v1, p13 (6) Manaqib, by Khawarazmi al-Hanfi, p80 (7) al-Bidayah wal-Nihayah, by Ibn Kathir, v3, p213 (8) Yanabi’ al-Mawaddah, by al-Qudoozi al-Hanafi, p115 (9) Nuzul al-Qur’an, by al-Hafiz Abu Nu’aym narrated on the authority Abu Sa’id Khudri. After his speech, the Messenger of Allah asked every body to give the oath of allegiance to ‘Ali (عليه السلام) and congratulate him. Among those who gave him the oath were Umar, Abu Bakr, and Uthman. It is narrated that Umar and Abu Bakr said: "Well done Ibn Abi Talib! Today you became the leader (Mawla) of all believing men and women." Sunni references: (1) Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v4, p281 (2) Tafsir al-Kabir, by Fakhr al-Razi, v12, pp 49-50 (3) Mishkat al-Masabih, by al-Khatib al-Tabrizi, p557 (4) Habib al-Siyar, by Mir Khand, v1, part3, p144 (5) Kitabul Wilayah, by Ibn Jarir al-Tabari (6) al-Musannaf, by Ibn Abi Shaybah (7) al-Musnad, by Abu Ya’ala (8) Hadith al-Wilayah, by Ahmad Ibn `Uqdah (9) Tarikh, by Khatib al-Baghdadi, v8, pp 290,596 from Abu Hurayra 
    • Brother I completely agree with you. No one is talking about faith and humanity under the topic. Though, you raised a good point that we should be helpful towards everyone. And should do good actions to elevate ourselves rather than just claiming and boasting. Sayyids, who feel proud of their lineage will have to face in hereafter, because it is wrong.  Sadaat simply means the descendents of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). Their is nothing special about it. It doesn't makes us equal to the great sayyids and ahlulbayt (عليه السلام). Just like the bani Israel were simply the children of Yaqoob (عليه السلام). That doesn't make them equal to Yousuf, Moses, Jesus (peace be on all of them). Just like the bani Hashim were simply the children of Hashim. It doesn't makes Abu Leheb (LA) equal to Hazrat Hamza Shaheed (رضي الله عنه). That's simple. 
    • On a lighter note, I have seen people react a bit negatively when they learn I am Syed. Comments like "since when did you become Syed", "nothing special about it", "what matters is imaan and taqwa" etc. The same people will loudly and proudly exclaim they are: Jatt, Gujjar, Mughal, Arain, Niazi, Pakhtun, Sheikh, Bhutto, etc etc. When it comes to Syeds, suddenly all people are equal and only taqwa matters
    • It's not a matter of if but when, it's a horrible thing to burden your children with. What exactly has he fulfilled by marrying a woman who drives him crazy and refuses to talk about her issues with him? Without communication or mutual respect, there is no marriage 
    • Re-read Ayats 38:30-33. Shakir renders mashan as "slash" which l understand is the best meaning.
