Dhul-Hijjah 18 is Eid al-Ghadeer. Congratulations for the Great Eid, the day that Prophet Muhammad SA raised the hand of Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib AS at Ghadir Khum and announced to Hajj pilgrims that Allah SWT appointed Ali Ibn Abi Talib (PBUH) as the guardian (Wali), the master (Mawla), the leader (Imam), and the commander (Amir) of all believing men and women, the deputy and the executor of his affairs (Wasi), and his successor (Khalifa). Salawat.

Is it mustahab to fast in this day? 

Yes. We have hadith about fasting on the Eid al Ghadir:

Quote

Fasting on the Day of Ghadir

قَالَ الصَّادِقُ:صِيَامُ يَوْمِ غَدِيرِ خُمٍّ يَعْدِلُ صِيَامُ عُمْرِ الدُّنْيَا لَوْ عَاشَ إِنْسَانٌ ثُمَّ صَامَ مَا عُمِرَتِ الدُّنْيَا لَكَانَ لَهُ ثَوَابَ ذٌلِكَ

It has been narrated from as-Sadiq [Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad] (peace be upon him) that: “Fasting on the Day of Ghadir is equivalent to fasting the time span of the (existence of the) entire world – meaning that if a person were to live a life of the entire existence of the world and were to fast this whole time, the reward for this fasting would be equivalent to fasting (this one day of Ghadir).”
