Imam Sadiq (a.s) On Ghadeer


Sheikh Al Kulayni:

Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn Al-Hussain from Al-Hajjaal from Abdul Samad ibn Bashir from Hassan Al-Jamal who said: I took Aba Abdullah Imam Al-Sadiq (a.s), from Madinah to Makkah and we went to the Masjid of Al-Ghadeerr, then Imam (a.s), recipient of divine supreme covenant, looked to the left side of the Mosque and said: "That place is the footstep of the Messenger of Allah (saw), recipient of divine supreme covenant, when he said: "Of whomsoever I am master, Alee is his master!" Then Imam Al-Sadiq (a.s), turned to another direction and said: "That place is where pavilion of Abi Bakr and Umar and Salim Mawla Abi Hudhaifa and Abi Ubaida Al-Jarrah was located, when they saw the Messenger of Allah (saw), recipient of divine supreme covenant, took the hand of the Commander of Faithful Imam Alee (a.s), recipient of divine supreme covenant, and held it high. They said to one another: 'Look at his eyes how they turn (i.e. the eyes of the Messenger of Allah), as if they are the eyes of a madman.' Then Jibreel (a.s) came down and revealed the following verse: 


وَإِن يَكَادُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَيُزْلِقُونَكَ بِأَبْصَارِهِمْ لَمَّا سَمِعُوا الذِّكْرَ وَيَقُولُونَ إِنَّهُ لَمَجْنُونٌ 


Hence, [be patient] even though they who are bent on denying the truth would all but kill thee with their eyes whenever they hear this reminder, and [though] they say, "[As for Muhammad] behold, most surely he is a madman!"

Holy Qur'aan: (68.51)
