A Command of God
He was sitting among fourty
of the tribe's men... They were listening to the prophet's (S)
speech after the holy verse descended on him "And admonish thy

for two light words on your tongue..., heavey in the measure..., by
them you will dominate Arab and non-Arab..., The nations will follow
you..., by them you will enter the paradise..., by them you will
save your selves from the hell... these are: There is no God but God
and I am the messenger of God. So who will comply with me for this
matter... And fortify me to carry it out, He will be my brother. May

The prophet is still repeating
his speech, Didn't receive any reply from any one,
one who was sitting among them... Although he was the youngest of
All the presents... But while he heard the messengers (S) voice, He
stood up and said with certainty in every time: O, messenger I will
support you for this matter...
Bat the prophet (S) replayed him:
Then he repeated his message on their ears...
my chief O, Allah's messenger do you wait an other one than this
young boy. And you are the more knowing than all people by
Isn't he the person who was among his brothers whom you
have chosen to live with you? And his age wasn't more than six years
at that time...
So you made him grows under your
care, and drinks from your science sources... You were huging him to
your chest... and chewing the food then you put it in his mouth...
Who was other than him is aquinted with you while you were close to
him in Harrae cavern every year, thus he sees you and no one other
than him does see you...?
Is there other than this youngster who
smelled the prophetic's fragrance..., and saw the afflatus' and
mission's flowers since his tender age...? And took the knowledge
from you until he asked you one day after he heard a resonance slips
to his ears: O, God's Apostle... what is this resonance?! So you
answered him: This is the Satan who despaired from his worship… you
are hearing what am I hearing, and you are see what I see am but you
aren't a prophet… your are my minister....
|O, Allah's apostil is there other
than him...? Who attended your spiritual situation which you were
passing through it when you were retiring in Harea cavern... Until
he became sure of every thing so he needn't for you to call him for
Surly he is Ali ibn Abi Talib (a.s.), who isn't affected
by any thing of ignorant epoch, and he didn't harmonize with it...
and already he was well informed about your mission affair and your
mission system... So he announced his credence with you and sure of
you until he said: The messenger of Allah (S) instructed me thousand
fields of science, and thousand fields of every field are opened for
At last, the prophet (S) said that to Ali (a.s.):- Sit,
surly you are my brother, my care taker, my supporter, my inheritor
and my caliph after me.
|Then people raised while they were
talking to Abi Talib and mocking at him: Be delight in this day if
you embraced your brother's belief, already he made your son a
prince on you...
Is there other than Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a.s.) the
youngster whom Allah (s.w.t.) honored him by which he didn't honor
other than him with it even form the prophets... and that by
entertaining his mother Fatima the daughter of Asad in his noble
house... that she entered to bear him there... then she born him.
Truly he was with a nice face, happy and tidy... then Allah (s.w.)
fed his mother from the paradise fruits while she was still in this
world... and He (s.w.) commanded her as He said: O, Fatima nominate
him Ali... I have derived his name from my name..., Cultured him by
my politeness..., and informed him with the obscure of my
|so blessed to whom has loved and
obeyed him... and the woe to whom has heated and resisted him... O,
Allah's messenger every thing that Allah (s.w.) had made of Ali's
(a.s.) stature since his birth moment in his noble house... until
your mission moment wasn't unless to be your caliph and your
And the years pass sequential... until that
appointed day arrived... Oh, what a day was it... the weather was
very hut at that mid day... And thousands of the caravans were
returning from Hajj with the prophet (s) and their feet were burnt
by the sands warmth intensity... the desert simoom was scorching
their faces under the sun flame... and the most effective thing of
these situations, that was engaging their chests..., already the
prophet (s) alluded to them through the rites of pilgrimage which
made them feel that, this Hajj is the last for him (s)...
The caravans continued their
walking until they reached to a place that the pilgrims' cities
roads ramify from it, which is called Ghadeer Khom...
heard a sound that commanded them to stop... so they looked at back
while they were asking what happened at this time and in these
So there were many persons who were acting to
supply some of the tents to erect them in specific places...
They were query and probably at that moment they didn't know
that the prophet (s) didn't do that a cording to His desire, but
according to Allah's (s.w.) command, which Jibrael Ameen "reliable"
had revealed to the prophet (s) addressing to him:
"O, Apostle! Deliver
what has been revealed to you from your lord; and if you do it not,
then you have not delivered His message, and Allah will protect you
from the people..."
It was called to the midday prayer... then
the prophet (s) led the throng groups in the prayer and at that day
which was very hot so that the man was putting apart of his clothing
on his head and apart of it under his feet because of the sweltering
|When the messenger (s) has finished
his prayer... He stood as a preacher on the camels' "aktaab" among
these groups and raised his sound for their ears and said: "Praise
be to God... we beseech him for help. Believe with Him, recommended
one's soul to Him and we seek refuge by God from our selves' evils
and from our bad deeds... who there is no guide to whom he has
strayed... and there is no misleader to whom he has guided...
people the most kind, the adept have told me that there is no a
prophet has lived long unless such as the age of the prophet who was
before him... And I am about to die then I am responsible and also
are you what are you answer?
They replayed: We certify that you
have communicated, endeavored and admonished so God remunerates
|Then he expressed: Are you
testify that there is no God but God, and that Mohammad is his man
and his messenger, and his paradise is truth... his hellfire is
truth..., the death is truth..., the resurrection is truth..., and
there is no distrust that the Hour of resurrection is coming... and
Allah will resurrect whom they are in the tombs...|
answered: We certify with that, he followed: O, God testify... O,
people indeed that Allah is my lord... and I am the believers'
chief..., I am worthier by them than them selves...
And Imam Ali
(a.s.) was already beside him, he took his hand, holding it up with
his hand... until people watched their white armpits... and raised
His voice: Therefore whom I was his chief this Ali is his chief, O,
God stand by who has stood by him, antagonize who has antagonized
him, like who has liked him, hate who has hated him..., advocate who
has advocated him, disappoint who has disappointed him and rotate
the genuine with him where he has rotated...

foremost of you... and truly you are arriving on me at the basin
"Houd"... basin, it's width is between Busrah and Sanae there are
tumblers made of silver as number as the stars in it...
see how will you follow me in the two important things... I will ask
you for them while you come on me at the basin...

(s.w.) liability and the other side of it is in your hands...
So you keep on it
you will not fail... and the other greatest thing is my issue, my
And the most kind, the omniscient Allah had
informed me that they wouldn't separate until they come on me at the
basin... so I asked my God for that to them... thus don't precede
them you will fail... and don't neglect from them you will fail
also... so the present person may inform the absent person of you...

sentiment and flavor that it's incidents would be unforget at the
human... so this communication has come synchronized with the
farewell terms to stay alive n the nation's mind, conscience and
their memory... then people have crowded on him to induct him... and

The prophet (s) replayed as He said: Is this be form
other than Allah's command...?!!! Then Umar the son of Khattab
approached to the believers' commander Ali (a.s.) and greeted him
and said? O, commander of faithful peace be up on you bravo, bravo
for you O, Ali... already you became my master and the master of
every faithful man and faithful woman ...

the same thing that Umar had done in the presence of those

because of the relation ship between him and Ali- ibni-abi-Talib
(a.s.). But he was known about what will happen after his death (s)
and here is he calling Ali (a.s.) and a group of his companions at
one night to go out with him to Baqie ... while He was felling with

|The prophet (s) has ordered to
supply an army, He put the aged immigrants and defenders' in it
among them Aba-Bakr... Umar the son of Khattab... Ausman the son of
Affan and others... and He chose the young companion of him Ausameh
the son of Zayed the son of Al- Harith Haritheh as a leader for the
army... And at the same time which the prophet (s) was suffering
from his illness violence..., Umar the son of Khattab, Abu Bakr and
Ausman apologized to join with Usameh's army..., In spite of the
prophet (s) said at that time: Allas' malediction on every one who
has stayed behind of Ausameh's army...!!
They would alleged that
they were unable to let the prophet (s) as he was in his extremely
illness case..., But while His Holy head (s) has drooped in Ali the

while he has been addressed Ali (a.s.): O, Ali there is no one like

shelter, Aumar began to recognize Abi Bakr as a caliph... and asked
the presents to recognize him as he did ...

(a.s.) hearing, because of the clamor which is happened while people
walked out from the shelter and went to the prophetic
While they were given away Aba Bakir as the bride's
weeding in the same time that Imam Ali (a.s.) and the prophetic
house hold (a.s.) were busy by supply, washing, shrouding, praying,
and burying the prophet's (s) body...
And because of that Imam
Ali (a.s.) wasn't satisfied for what is happened, so he continued
keeping on his right with the Khilafeh, defending for Islam and
Muslims, turning to answer the difficulties, enduring the agonies
and forbearing until the most rogue got out to color his divine
beard, and to bereave all the Islamic nation with him, so that was
at night of the eighteenth of Ramadan month 41 A.H.
