an d asked anyone to stand up who had heard the Prophet
(صلى-الله-عليه-و-آله-وسلم) say something on the day of Ghadīr Khum. The
narrator says: Six (men) from Sa‘īd’s side and six from
Zay d’s side stood up an d bore witness that they had heard
the Prophet (صلى-الله-عليه-و-آله-وسلم) say about ‘Alī (AlahisSalam) on the day of Ghadīr
Khum: Is Allāh not nearer than the lives of the believers?
The people said: Why not! Then he said: O Allāh! One
who has me as his master has ‘Alī as his master. O Allāh!
Be you h is friend who befriends him (‘Alī), an d be his
enemy who is his (‘Alī’s) enemy.”

Ahmd bin Hambal related it in al-Musnad (1:118); Ibn Abī Shaybah, al-Musannaf (12:67 # 12140); Tabarānī, al-Mu‘jam-ul￾awsat (3:69, 134 # 2130, 2275), al-Mu‘jam-us-saghīr (1:65); Diyā’

‘ummāl (13:157 # 36485).
Nasā’ī narrated it with sound (sahīh) chain of authorities in
Khasā’is amīr-il-mu’minīn ‘Alī bin Abī Tālib (pp.90, 100 # 84, 95).
Haythamī said in Majma‘-uz-zawā’id (9:107,108) that
Tabarānī’s chain of authorities is hasan (fair).

“‘Abd-ur-Rahmān bin Abī Laylā narrates that I saw
‘Alī (AlahisSalam) in a vast plain. At that time he was asking people
on o ath that anyone who had heard the Messenger of Allāh
(صلى-الله-عليه-و-آله-وسلم) say on the day of Ghadīr Khum — one who has me
as h is master has ‘Alī as his master — should stand up an d
bear witness. ‘Abd-ur-Rahmān said: At this twelve Badrī1 Companion s ((رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ)) stood up as I am look in g at one of them.
Those (Badrī Companions) said: We bear witness that we
heard the Messenger of Allāh (صلى-الله-عليه-و-آله-وسلم) say on the day of
Ghadīr Khum: Am I not nearer than the lives of the
believers and are not my wives their mothers? All of them
said: Why not, O Messenger of Allāh! At this he said: One
who has me as his master has ‘Alī as his master. O Allāh!
Befriend him who befriends him (‘Alī) and be his enemy
who is his (‘Alī’s) enemy.”

“Amr bin Dh ī Mur, Sa‘īd bin Wah b an d Zay d bin
Yuthay ‘((رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ)) narrate that we heard ‘Alī (AlahisSalam) say: I want to

() say this on the day of Ghadīr Khum. At this thirteen
men stood up and bore witness that the Messenger of
Allāh (صلى-الله-عليه-و-آله-وسلم) said: Am I not nearer than the lives of the believers? All of them said: Why not! O Messenger of
Allāh. The narrator says that he then caught hold of ‘Alī’s
hand and said: One who has me as his master has ‘Alī as
his master. O Allāh! Befriend him who befriends him, and
be his enemy who is his (‘Alī’s) enemy, love him who
loves him (‘Alī), bear malice towards him who bears
malice towards him (‘Alī), help him who help s him (‘Alī)
and degrade him who (tries to) degrade him (‘Alī).”
