#Shia, #Sunni, differences
#Muslims consider every aspect in the #life of #Prophet_Muhammad (PBUH) to be very significant. For not only the Prophet’s statements are away from any carnal desires and is related to the origin of Revelation according to the holy #Quran, but also, His actions #show the true #way of life. Throughout his life, specific events happened that were of #great importance, of those one is #known as #Ghadir, held in a #location called Ghadir Khumm.
The event of Ghadir consists of several aspects that give it a brighter value than the rest of the events. The references for the actual event, the large number of #narrators, and the Islamic that witnessed and reassured of the event all prove Ghadir to be one of the very few events in Islam to have such strong base in #belief.
While looking at narrators of #Hadith of Ghadir, we will see Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH&HP) progeny as the first narrators. They are #Imam_Ali (PBUH), #Lady Fatima Al-Zahra (PBUH), #Imam_Hassan (PBUH) and #Imam_Hussain (PBUH). Furthermore one hundred and ten companions (Sahabi) of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) narrated this saying, such as:
Abubakr Ibn-Abighohafah ,Omar Ibn-Khattab ,Othman Ibn-Affan ,Ayeshe bent-Abibakr ,Salman Farsi ,Abazar Ghafari ,Ammar Yaser ,Zobeir Ibn-Avam ,Abbas Ibn-Abdolmuttaleb ,Jaber ibn-Abdullah al-Ansari ,Umme Salame ,Abdollah Ibn-Omar Ibn-Khattab ,Abouhorayre ,Zeid Ibn-Argham ….. The interesting #point is that all of these companions were present when the event took place, therefore, they have narrated the saying #directly. Of the others who have narrated the Hadith of Ghadir, were 83 #people from Tabe’in. Some of them are:
Asbagh Ibn-Nobate , Salim Ibn-Abdollah Ibn-Omar Ibn-Khattab , Soleim Ibn-Gheis , Omar Ibn-Abdolaziz (the Umayyad caliph)…. After Tabe’in, Sunni scholars from #second up to the thirteenth #century have narrated the Hadith; #three of the Sunni Sahih authors (from the #six) and two of their jurisprudence leaders are amongst those. The precise number of Shia scholars who have narrated this saying is not known, however, some of the #most #popular ones are:
