Poetry and literature of every nation are the mirror of its thoughts, beliefs, and tendencies. The ritual literature of Shiite poets, followers of Wilayah, is similarly a mirror through which the symbol of Shia thoughts, beliefs, and ideological culture is manifested. Since the Ghadeer is the symbol of Shia, it is not an exaggeration if we consider the Ghadeer poetry to be in line with and akin to the Shiite poetry; in addition, the Shiite poetry has been derived from the pure beliefs of believers in heavenly Wilayah and Ghadeer khum is its limpid and endless waterway. The Event of Ghadeer, among the other events of Islam, is the only event which, since its occurrence, has been accompanied by a piece of poem as a permanent document. This poem with its rhyming lines and rhythmic pattern is the lasting evidence in the Ghadeer records which has been kept orally and, with regard to its literary importance, has been recorded in the books. Arabic literature, which in the years after the advent of Islam, has come a long way and has passed many ups and downs in fifteen centuries, demonstrates manifest features through its poetic themes. Concentration on the Event of Ghadeer is one of its clear features which is manifested in the poems of most Arab poets. Seiyyed Haumeiri, one of the greatest poets loyal to the Household of the holy Prophet, has composed many poems about the Event of Ghadeer. Benefited by his pure poetic talent and initiative, this famous Shiite poet has composed some beautiful and everlasting odes about the dignity and moral virtues of Imam Ali, especially about the Event of Ghadeer khum. Each line of his poems reminds the world of the rightfulness of Ali and his Household and defeats the deniers of the sun of the Wilayah sky. The present paper tries to depict the great historical Event of Ghadeer Khum through Seiyyed Haumeiri's poems.
