After his last pilgrimage, the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم stood to give us a speech beside a pond which is known as Khum {Ghadir Khum} which is located between Mecca and Madinah. Then he praised Allah and reminded Him, and then said:

“O’ people! Behold! It seems the time approached when I shall be called away {by Allah} and I shall answer that call. Behold! I am leaving for you two precious things. First of them is the book of Allah in which there is light and guidance… The other one is my Ahlul-Bayt {people of my house}.

I remind you in the name of Allah about my Ahlul-Bayt. I remind you in the name of Allah about my Ahlul-Bayt. I remind you in the name of Allah about my Ahlul-Bayt. {3 times}.”

“The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و آله و صحبه و سلم called me and told me:

‘You are like Jesus, Jews hated him till they slandered his mother, and Christians loved him till they put him in the position that is not for him.’ With regard to me, two categories of people will be ruined, namely he who loves me too much and the love takes him away from rightfulness, and he who hates me too much and the hatred takes him away from rightfulness. Verily, I am not a prophet, and there is nothing revealed to me. But I work with the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of his Prophet () as much as I can. So whatever I have asked you in regard of obeying Allah, it is your duty to obey me whether you like it or not.”
