Author: Grand Ayatullah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah
Translated by: S. As-Samarra'i
Ghedir An Islamic Perspective is an amazing book by Grand Ayatullah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah. The book was originally written in Arabic in Beirut, Lebanon, and translated in 2008 by S. As-Samarra’i.
This book is an amazing book which speaks in detail regarding the event of Ghedir, the Sayyed discusses the event in detail, and uses many references to prove the event of Ghadir.
In the book the Sayyed discusses the Role of the Messenger, explains what true allegiance is, discusses and proves that only Imam Ali (as) was qualified for the succession of Muhammad, the Sayyed also answers a number of frequently asked questions regarding Ghedir.
The Sayyed discusses the life of Imam Ali (as) and explains to use that Imam Ali was not only a simple companion of the Prophet rather he also followed into the footsteps of Muhammad, and sacrificed his whole life for the Holy Prophets, and his message, the Sayyed also explains that Imam Ali is the only one who would have been worthy and qualified to continue the message of Muhammad after Islam because of his leadership skills, his wisdom, and his victory as a leader in battle.
I strongly recommend this book to all Muslims, and recommend it also to all those who claim Sayyed Fadlullah did not believe in the Wilayah or succession of Imam Ali (as), I also strongly recommend this book as it will give you lots of background information regarding your faith, and it also make you ready for anyone who comes to try and question your belief in the succession of Imam Ali (as)
