Sadd al-Abwāb (Arabic: سدّ الابواب, meaning: to close the doors) refers to the event that Prophet Muhammad (s) ordered that all doors which were opened to the mosque of Medina be closed except the door of 'Ali's (a) house. This hadith is frequently narrated (Mutawatir) in Shi'a and Sunni sources. The event of Sadd al-Abwab is regarded as one of the excellences of Imam Ali (a). He referred to this event in the six-member council for assigning caliph after 'Umar b. al-Khattab.
