"No doubt, the day of Eid al-Ghadir is an extremely important day. The importance of this Eid--the most important Eid based on the Shia narrations-- relies on its theme: wilayah [governance]. It could be said that the goal of all the efforts made by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and other prophets and religious figures was to establish the wilayah of God."
