On the 18th day of the holy month of Zilhijja in the 10th year of Hijra, on his return from Hajjatul-Vida at a location famous as `Ghadir-e-Khom, the Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) was asked by Allah through the revelation of this verse:

"balligh ma unzila ilayka.............." (Qur'an 5: 67)

" Deliver what has been revealed to you ..."

to announce what he did announce at Ghadeer e Khum.

He delivered a very important sermon and while holding and lifting the hand of Imam Ali (A.S.), He addressed a reported 120,000 Muslims gathered there:

"O people! Is it not true that my `Wilayat" over you (believers) is of more importance than your `Wilayat" over yourselves?" To this question, the people answered in the affirmative. Then the Prophet (PBUH) announced:

"The one whose Mawla (supreme master) I am, this Ali is his Master.

O Allah! Love him who loves Ali, and be the enemy of the enemy of Ali...."

In that gathering at Ghadir-e-Khom, the Prophet (PBUH) also spoke regarding other important matters that stress on the importance of Imamate and Wilayat in the Islamic context. One of his important announcements was as follows:

"O people! I shall soon be departing from your midst. And you will meet me at the Pond of `Kawthar". Then I will ask you about two precious things (Thaqalayn). So be careful as to how you treat these two, after my demise."
