Wishing all brothers and sisters a Very Happy Eid Ghadeer.
To congratulate someone on a joyous and happy occasion is human as well as idiosyncratic principle. Congratulations are also a means of expression of proximity. It is of great significance on the occasion of Eid amongst we Muslims. Even broken relations are patched up with such congratulations. Apart from several other benefits of congratulating and complimenting, one major benefit is that the one who is congratulating cannot claim unawareness of the situation.
The highlight of his sermon was when, taking Imam ‘Ali (a) by the hand, the Prophet (s) asked his followers whether he was superior in authority (awla) to the believers themselves. The crowd cried out in one voice: “It is so, O Apostle of Allah”. He then declared:
“He of whom I am the master (mawla), of him ‘Ali is also the master (mawla). O God, be the friend of him who is his friend, and be the enemy of him who is his enemy.”
Immediately after the Prophet (s) finished his speech, the following verse of the Qur’an was revealed: Today I have perfected your religion and completed my favor upon you, and I was satisfied that Islam be your religion. (Qur’an 5:3)
