Hadith of the pond of Khumm
Arabic حدیث غدیر خم
Romanization Hadith-i ghadir
Literal meaning Narration of the pond
The Investiture of Ali at Ghadir Khumm (MS Arab 161, fol. 162r, AD 1309/8 Ilkhanid manuscript illustration)

The Hadith of the pond of Khumm (Arabic: غدير خم‎) is a hadith that refers to a historical event in Islamic history. It has been interpreted in different ways by the two main sects of Islam, the Sunni and the Shia, where the Shias maintain that in this hadith, the Islamic prophet Muhammad appointed Ali (Ali ibn Abi Talib) as his heir and successor. The event took place on 18th of Dhu al-Hijjah of 10 AH in the Islamic calendar (March 10, 632 AD)[citation needed] at a place called Ghadir Khumm, which is located near the city of al-Juhfah, in present day Saudi Arabia.[1]

Most of sunni scholars and historians and shia sources maintain that 70,000 people were present at this occasion, while some of sunni scholars such as Tha'labi in his Tafsir, Sibt Ibn Jauzi in his Tadhkirat'u-Khasa'isi'l-Umma fi Ma'rifati'l-A'imma give the figure 120,000 people were there.[2] The sermon also illustrates the Islamic understanding of monotheism and God.

Context[edit]

Mosque at Johfa

A few months before his death, Muhammad, living in the city of Medina, made his religious pilgrimage to Mecca in a trip referred to as The Farewell Pilgrimage. There, atop Mount Arafat, he addressed the Muslim masses in what came to be known as The Farewell Sermon. After completion of the Hajj, or religious pilgrimage, Muhammad turned back towards his home in Medina.

On the way back, the below Quranic verse was revealed:

O Messenger! Make known that which hath been revealed unto thee from thy Lord, for if thou do it not, thou wilt not have conveyed His message. Allah will protect thee from mankind. Lo! Allah guideth not the disbelieving folk.

—Quran, sura 5 (Al-Ma'ida), ayah 67[3]

Following this, Muhammad stopped at the pond of Khumm and delivered a sermon. Shia narrators of traditions have attributed the revelation of this verse to be in relation to Ali on the occasion of Ghadir Khumm[4][5][6]

The hadith[edit]

On the way back to Medina, he ordered his companions to stop at Ghadir Khum and delivered a sermon of which, a brief version is quoted below,

O people, Allah the Most Kind the Omniscient has told me that no apostle lives to more than half the age of him who had preceded him. I think I am about to be called (to die) and thus I must respond. I am responsible and you are responsible, then what do you say?' They said, 'We witness that you have informed, advised and striven. May Allah bless you.' He said, 'Do you not bear witness that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is His servant and Apostle, and that His Heaven is true, His Hell is true, death is true, the Resurrection after death is true, that there is no doubt that the Day of Judgment will come, and that Allah will resurrect the dead from their graves?' They said, 'Yes, we bear witness.' He said, 'O Allah, bear witness.' Then he said, 'O people, Allah is my Lord and I am the lord of the believers. I am worthier of believers than themselves. Of whomsoever I had been Master (Mawla), Ali here is to be his Master. O Allah, be a supporter of whoever supports him (Ali) and an enemy of whoever opposes him and divert the Haq to Ali.'

Then he said,

O people, I will go ahead of you and you will arrive at my Pond (in Heaven) which is wider than the distance between Basra and San'a. It has receptacles as numerous as the stars, and two cups of gold and two of silver. I will ask you about the two weighty things that I have left for you when you come to me to see how you dealt with them. The greater weighty thing is Allah's book—the Holy Qur'an. One end is in Allah's hand and the other is in your hands. Keep it and you will not deviate. That other weighty thing is my family (Ahl al-Bayt) and my descendents. The Most Kind the Omniscient had told me that both of them, would not separate until they come to my Pond.

Another similar narration of the hadith goes as follows,

O people! Reflect on the Quran and comprehend its verses. Look into its clear verses and do not follow its ambiguous parts, for by Allah, none shall be able to explain to you its warnings and its mysteries, nor shall anyone clarify its interpretation, other than the one that I have grasped his hand, brought up beside myself,(and lifted his arm), the one about whom I inform you that whomever I am his master, this Ali is his master (Mawla); and he is Ali Ibn Abi Talib, my brother, the executor of my will (Wasiyyi), whose appointment as your guardian and leader has been sent down to me from Allah, the mighty and the majestic.[7]

There are other versions of this hadith that say,

Yahya related to me from Malik that he heard that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "I have left two matters with you. As long as you hold to them, you will not go the wrong way. They are the Book of Allah and the Sunna of His Prophet."

—Malik ibn Anas, Muwatta Imam Malik[8]

I leave for you the Quran alone you shall uphold it.

Sahih Muslim 15/19, nu 1218; Sunan ibn Majah 25/84, Sunan Abu Dawood 11/56

The translation of the word mawla[edit]

The word mawla is discussed in a non-Muslim fashion in a book edited by Monique Bernards and John Nawas called Patronate and Patronage in Early and Classical Islam.[9] This book sheds light on the word mawla.[10]

Monique Bernards and John Nawas translate it as follows:

Mawla may refer to a client, a patron, an agnate (brother, son, father's brother, father' brothers son), an affined kinsman, (brother-in-law, son-in-law), a friend, a supporter, a follower, a drinking companion, a partner, a newly-converted Muslim attached to a Muslim and last but not least an ally. Most of these categories have legal implication. Mawla is commonly translated as "a client".

Oath of allegiance by Umar and Gabriel's advice to him[edit]

On the completion of Muhammad's sermon, Umar (Umar al-Khattab) said, "Congratulations to you, Ali! This morning has brought you a great blessing. Today you have become the master of all believing men and women." At a later occasion when Umar was asked about his special treatment to Ali as compared to other companions, his reply was, "He is my master."[11][12][13][14]

Mir Sayyid Ali Hamadani, a Shafi'i scholar, writes in his book, Mawaddat al-Qurba in Mawadda 5, that many companions quoted Umar in different places as having said that Muhammad made Ali the chief and leader of the nation and that Muhammad announced publicly that Ali was their master. Umar was also quoted saying that on the day of that announcement, a handsome youth was sitting besides him and that the youth said to him, "Surely, the Prophet has bound a covenant which none but a hypocrite would break. So Umar! Avoid breaking it." When Umar told Muhammad about the incident, Muhammad said that the youth was not of Adam's (Adem) progeny but was Gabriel (Jibral) and was stressing the point about Ali.

Muawiyah is reminded about Ghadir[edit]

When Muawiyah arrived (in Mecca) during one of his pilgrimages, accordingly, Sa`d ibn Abi Waqqas came to see him, and they happened to mention Ali. He (Muawiyah) thus diminished Ali. As a result, Sa`d became angry and said: "You are speaking of this man! I have heard the Messenger of Allah—peace and salutation of Allah be upon him—declare (On the day of Ghadir): 'Of whomsoever I am the master, then Ali is his master.' I have (also) heard him say: 'You Ali are to me in position that Harun was to Musa, except that there is no prophet after me (See Hadith of position).' And I have heard him announce: 'Today I am indeed going to hand over the banner to a person who loves Allah and his Messenger.'"[15]

Sufi explanation from Sunni texts[edit]

The point of view taken up by some Sufi groups is the announcement of "Spiritual Authority" of Ali by Muhammad. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, a Sufi scholar, cites 51 different hadith about the incident of Ghadir from various Sunni sources. He states in his book, The Ghadir Declaration that, "This (Ghadir declaration) was the declaration of 'Alī's spiritual sovereignty and its unconditional acceptance is binding on the believers till the Day of Judgment. It clearly proves that anyone who denies 'Alī's spiritual leadership in fact denies the Prophet's leadership."[citation needed]
