ÈíÏ Úáí Èä ÃÈí ØÇáÈ ÑÖí Çááå Úäå, ÝÞÇá: ÃáÓÊ æáí ÇáãÄãäíä¿ ÞÇáæÇ: Èáì, íÇ ÑÓæá Çááå. ÞÇá: ãä ßäÊ ãæáÇå ÝÚáí ãæáÇå. ÝÞÇá ÚãÑ Èä ÇáÎØÇÈ ÑÖí Çááå Úäå: ÈÎ ÈÎ áß íÇ ÇÈä ÃÈí ØÇáÈ! ÃÕÈÍÊ ãæáÇí æãæáì ßá ãÓáã, ÝÃäÒá Çááå: {Çáíóæúãó ÃßúãóáÊõ áßõãú Ïöíúäóßõãú}.

Abū Hurayrah (ÑÖí Çááå Úäå) has narrated that one who fasted on 18 Dhul-hijjah will receive a reward equal to 60 months of fasting. This was the day of Ghadīr Khum when the Prophet (Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå æÓáã), holding ‘Alī bin Abī Tālib’s hand, said: Am I not the guardian of the believers? They said: why not, O messenger of Allāh! He said: One who has me as his master has ‘Alī as his master. At this ‘Umar bin al-Khattāb (ÑÖí Çááå Úäå) said: congratulations! O Ibn Abī Tālib! You are my master and (the master of) every Muslim. (On this occasion) Allāh revealed this verse: Today, I have perfected your religion for you.”

Is this considered true? If we fast on Eid-Ghadeer is it reallly equal to 60 months? I understand not all of Hurayrah's hadith are considered authentic so some clarification would definitley be appreciated.

بيد علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه, فقال: ألست ولي المؤمنين؟ قالوا: بلى, يا رسول الله. قال: من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه. فقال عمر بن الخطاب رضي الله عنه: بخ بخ لك يا ابن أبي طالب! أصبحت مولاي ومولى كل مسلم, فأنزل الله: {اليَوْمَ أكْمَلتُ لكُمْ دِيْنَكُمْ}.

قَالَ الصَّادِقُ:صِيَامُ يَوْمِ غَدِيرِ خُمٍّ يَعْدِلُ صِيَامُ عُمْرِ الدُّنْيَا لَوْ عَاشَ إِنْسَانٌ ثُمَّ صَامَ مَا عُمِرَتِ الدُّنْيَا لَكَانَ لَهُ ثَوَابَ ذٌلِكَ

It has been narrated from as-Sadiq [imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad] (peace be upon him) that: “Fasting on the Day of Ghadir is equivalent to fasting the time span of the (existence of the) entire world – meaning that if a person were to live a life of the entire existence of the world and were to fast this whole time, the reward for this fasting would be equivalent to fasting (this one day of Ghadir).”

Wasa'il ash-Shi'a, Volume 7, Page 324, Hadith 4

Thanks but I was specifically looking for the Abu Huraira reference

to celebrate eid e ghadeer is the disputed issue between shiites . some shiites call it bidat to celebrate eid e ghadeer, then how can you expect a sunni to celebrate eid e ghadeer or to have fast on the day of eid e ghadeer.

I have never met A Shia who disputes whether to celebrate Eid e Ghadeer. You must travel in strange circles lol

My pleasure but that was to the OP's question. :)

I found this from a sunni website:

Abu huraira RAA Narrated: He who fasts the 18th of thu al Hijjah Allah will give him the reward of fasting 60 months and It Is The Day of Ghadeer Khum, When the prophet PBUH took Ali RAA by the hand and said.........

Source: Amali al Saduq 12, Bihar al Anwar 37/108 & 97/110.

Don't know whether the sources are correct or not. Would be great if someone could please verify the sources.
