Eid-e-Ghadir commemorates a significant event in Islamic history when Prophet Muhammad appointed Imam Ali as his successor.
The name "Ghadir" refers to a pond where the event took place. It is derived from the Arabic word meaning "to halt" or "to gather."
Eid-e-Ghadir is celebrated annually on the 18th of Dhu al-Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar.
The event of Ghadir Khumm occurred during the Prophet Muhammad's Farewell Pilgrimage, just a few months before his passing.
Imam Ali's appointment as the successor is considered a pivotal moment in Islamic leadership and forms a significant part of Shia Islamic belief.
Eid-e-Ghadir is celebrated by Shia Muslims worldwide, marking it as one of the most important occasions in their religious calendar.
The sermon delivered by Prophet Muhammad at Ghadir Khumm is regarded as one of the longest and most significant sermons of his life.
The event of Ghadir Khumm attracted a vast gathering of Muslims, estimated to be around 100,000 individuals.
