Event of Ghadir-e-Khum

Q:

I was asked by one of my friend about ghadir-e-Khum. I want to know the different view points (from different Fiqh's) regarding the Event of Ghadir e Khum.

A:

Salaam alaikum

Some, eg followers of Ibn Taymiyya, have dismissed the event altogether.

Others have claimed its to announce the friendship of Imam Ali with the Prophet.

Some sunni theological schools have claimed that it refers to the superiority of Imam Ali in fiqh or islamic rulings not governorship.
