Ghadeer needs to become institution amongst people

Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani declared: "The day of Ghadeer needs to become cherished in such a way that - like the commemoration of Ashura - it becomes an institution amongst the people."

"Celebrating the day of Ghadeer has a huge importance for Shia Muslims. The day of Ghadeer needs to become cherished in such a way that - like the commemoration of Ashura - it becomes an institution amongst the people," Ayatollah Noori Hamedani stated, during his advanced jurisprudence class.

"Every year around 2 million people gather together for Haj, however when it comes to the Arba'een of Imam Hussein, we see that 20 million people are waiting for the day to arrive to gather in Karbala. We need to create an atmosphere so that one day, 20 million people gather together to celebrate the day of Ghadeer."
Alluding to the topic of divine successorship, Ayatollah Hamedani stated: "The Holy Prophet Muhammad from the very beginning of his prophetic mission raised the issue of Imamah (divine succession) alongside prophethood."

"Some opponents claim Shi'ism came at a later date, but from the very beginning Imam Ali was appointed as the Holy Prophets successor and the likes of Meytham al-Tammar and Ammar ibn Yassir defended this Wilayah with their lives." He continued.

Regarding Wilayah al-Faqih and its relationship with the Wilayah of the Infallible Imams, Ayatollah Hamedani declared: "One of the special qualities of Imam Khomeini and the Islamic Revolution was that it brought back to life a principle that had been abandoned for centuries."

"Throughout history the biggest oppression was carried out against Wilayah al-Faqih, therefore this principle needs to be emboldened in front of the enemies." He concluded.
