Eid al-Ghadeer an innovation?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Being happy for a happiest occasion is innovation ? Sunni brothers should read in their books that their second caliph congratulated Imam Ali a.s on the day of Ghadir say that I congratulate you on becoming our Maula. If this is innovation that every happiest occassion is innovation ? While Allah says in Quran that Allah does not stop you from living happily, so are they saying that is this wrong as well.

How significant is Eid al-Ghadeer among the Shias?

This article say this Eid has no basis in Shia sources and the Ahlulbait never celebrated it.

Salaam Alaykum

I read that article. That article discusses whether we should consider Ghadir event Eid or not. It never said that it doesn't exist, so I ask you this question: "If we don't consider an event as Eid, does it mean that we can violate it?" The article accepts the existence of Ghadir event. Alhamdulillah, there are a lot of Hadiths in SUNNI books that they all say our prophet SAW chose Ali as his successor. Look at this:

Sonan Tarmazy: Zeid-ibn-Arghem from Rasoulullah: " Whoever I am his/her Mawla, Ali is also his/her Mawla"

Tafsir Ibn-Kasir about this verse با ابها الرسول بلغ ما انزل الیک من ربک : "Allah sent this verse in Ghadir day"

There are a lot of Hadiths about Ghadir in SUNNI books. Check this out:

*Tafseer Alousi

*Abubakr Mohammad Hassan-ibn-Baghdadi mentioned Ghadir Hadith 15 times in different places.

There are so many books about Hadith Ghadir in Sunni books. Allameh Amini (=Shia Scholar) referred to Sunni books to prove Ghadir in Al-Ghadir book. Here is the link for Al-Ghadir book:

http://www.ziyaraat.net/findbook.asp?Escritor=Allama+Abdul+Hussain+al-Amini&Tema=All&orderby=titulo&idioma=All&srchwhat=All&submit=+Find+Books+

Sultan-ul-Waezin in "Pishawar Nights" book referred to Sunni books and a lot of people became Shia during the debate. Here is the link to this book:

https://www.al-islam.org/printpdf/book/export/html/18725

So up to now we both agree that Ghadir is in the books and we must follow prophet in EVERYTHING including Ghadir. 

The article you mentioned says that since Shia Imams recommended doing fasting in Ghadir day, so it's not Eid. This reason is SO weak. Remember the day that Moaviah killed Imam Hussain, he fasted that day because he was so proud of what he did.

At the end of that article it says that Shia Muslims follow Imams. It's correct. We do follow them including fasting in Ghadir which is Mustahab. Now let's look at a Hadith that Shia Muslims consider Ghadir as Eid.

Ziad-Ibn-Mohammad said that I asked Imam Sadegh that is there any other Eid rather than Fetr and Aladha and Jumah? Imam Sadegh said: Yes, Eid-Al-Ghadir. (Source: Mesbah-Al-Mojtahed 736)

The article said we follow Imams, and that is the reason we consider Al-Ghadir as Eid.

That bit of info right there deems the website invalid for us.

Note to Mods: Can we have that link blocked out so that ill educated or under educated Shia don't go there and become as deviated as the authors of that website.

Actually, this day is significant for all Muslims because of the revelation of underlined portion of the following verse:

Surah Al-Maeda, Verse 3:

حُرِّمَتْ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَيْتَةُ وَالدَّمُ وَلَحْمُ الْخِنزِيرِ وَمَا أُهِلَّ لِغَيْرِ اللَّهِ بِهِ وَالْمُنْخَنِقَةُ وَالْمَوْقُوذَةُ وَالْمُتَرَدِّيَةُ وَالنَّطِيحَةُ وَمَا أَكَلَ السَّبُعُ إِلَّا مَا ذَكَّيْتُمْ وَمَا ذُبِحَ عَلَى النُّصُبِ وَأَن تَسْتَقْسِمُوا بِالْأَزْلَامِ ذَٰلِكُمْ فِسْقٌ الْيَوْمَ يَئِسَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِن دِينِكُمْ فَلَا تَخْشَوْهُمْ وَاخْشَوْنِ الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ فِي مَخْمَصَةٍ غَيْرَ مُتَجَانِفٍ لِّإِثْمٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

Forbidden to you is that which dies of itself, and blood, and flesh of swine, and that on which any other name than that of Allah has been invoked, and the strangled (animal) and that beaten to death, and that killed by a fall and that killed by being smitten with the horn, and that which wild beasts have eaten, except what you slaughter, and what is sacrificed on stones set up (for idols) and that you divide by the arrows; that is a transgression. This day have those who disbelieve despaired of your religion, so fear them not, and fear Me. This day have I perfected for you your religion and completed My favor on you and chosen for you Islam as a religion; but whoever is compelled by hunger, not inclining willfully to sin, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

(English - Shakir)

From alyawm to Islama dina was revealed when the Holy Prophet announced at Ghadir Khum: "Of whomsoever I am the mawla (master) Ali is his mawla (master)". Please study the event of Ghadir Khum in the commentary of verse 5:67 of this surah.

Ahmad bin Hanbal, the founder of Hanbali sect, writes in his Musnad that a Jew had told the second caliph: "If there were a similar declaration in the Pentateuch, the Jews would have celebrated the day as a great festival."

This verse is also a clear testimony to the perfection of the religion of Islam.

I can't lie because Islam forbid such thing. It's bidah. Mawlid is also bidah. I would be lying if I said that it isn't. The thing is that there is two types of Bidah, good and bad. I am not condemning anyone.

Something that is not alien to your fitra - Like celebrating for the sake of Allah purely abiding by the laws of Allah, How can be such celebration a Bidah?? A Bidah is always bad. There is nothing like good bidah. All good is Islam only. A creation can't think of a good that is not in Islam.

After all, Allah perfected His religion on the day of Ghadeer. Isn't that makes you happy? Eid is What? - A day of celebration.

Brother. I classical sunnism there is good and bad bidah. This version of all bidah is bad is the same method that Wahhabis use. Madhabds are bidah, books of hadith is bidah, the methodologies to read the Qur'an and Hadiths are bidah. For example I saw a twelver who had the idea of reading tafseer of the Qur'an with the Qur'an. That's a bidah, but a good one. Usul is bidah. So on and so fort. There's good and bad bidah. This term of labeling all bidah bad is the same that Ibn Taymiyyah used and the same wahhabis use. Getting a piece of clay from Karbala to put your head in is bidah. Were does the Prophet (s.a.w.s) went to Karbala get clay to pray? Here is the biggest Bidah of all that Allah Himself ordered "Change the qibla from Jerusalem to Mecca".

Does the foolish statement by sunni make any sense. No certainly not This is only way to blame the shia ulema and i condemn such foolish OP by sunnis.

Ghader has been discussed many times and sunni friends get nothing out of it.
