It is the firm belief of any mumin that it was on Ghadeer-e-Khumm that Rasulullah SAW’s deen was perfected and completed by his command of walayat towards his wasiyy, Maulana Ali AS. It was on this day that all shi’a believe that Rasulullah SAW proclaimed nass upon Maulana Ali AS. Mumineen believe the word of Rasulullah SAW on this matter to be final, and that indeed this nass was commanded by Allah Ta’ala.
Yet, today there exist so-called believers in Maulana Ali AS who question the finality of nass, those who believe that the command of Allah Ta’ala is subject to abrogation. To such people, ask the question: Is it possible that Rasulullah SAW’s nass on Maulana Ali AS could have been revoked or changed? Was the nass at Ghadeer-e-Khumm not final?
Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS in a waaz mubarak addresses the topic of whether nass can be changed while discussing whether Musa Kazim was ever a mansoos.
On Yawme Eid e-Ghadeer e-Khum, 18 Zilhajjatil Haraam (7 August), mumineen should pray shukran lillah namaaz, Zohr Namaaz and listen to wasila mubaraka. On this day, mumineen will also do rozu.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, mumineen in Hong Kong are requested to pray at home. Amal details are available including rozu niyyat, ghusul, niyyat for shukran lillah namaaz, wasila mubaraka recording, and al Yawma Eidu Ghadeer e Khummi qasida with English translation and audio recording.
