I give salutations and congratulations upon all of mankind for the mark of the appointment of Imam Ali A.S commanded by Allah swt. I pray for the best of mankind, for our piety and closeness to Allah to increase, for the injustice to rid of this world, and for the arrival of Imam Mahdi A.S. Please do the same, eltimas e dua. I highly suggest you all fast.




On 18th Zilhijjah of the year 10 A.H. (10 March 632 CE) ,after completing the last pilgrimage ,the Holy Prophet (pbuh) along with around 100,000 Muslims reached a place called 'Ghadir-e-khumm' near Mecca. The following verse was revealed :Quran 5:67] O Messenger! deliver what bas been revealed to you from your Lord; and if you do it not, then you have not delivered His message, and Allah will protect you from the people; surely Allah will not guide the unbelieving people.

On receiving the above verse, the Holy Prophet stopped at that very place & delivered a speech an extract of which is :-[....It seems the time has approached when I shall be called away (by Allah) and I shall answer that call. I am leaving for you two precious things and if you adhere to them both, you will never go astray after me. They are the Book of Allah and my Progeny, that is my Ahlul Bayt. The two shall never separate from each other until they come to me by the Pool (of Paradise)." Then the Holy Prophet (pbuh) in an attempt to remind Muslims of his own authority over them said: " Do I not have more right over the believers than what they have over themselves? " Muslims answered unanimously " Yes, O' Messenger of God ". This served as a stepping stone for the announcement of his heir and vicegerent. The Holy Prophet(pbuh) held out the hand of Ali(as) and said: " For whoever I am his Leader (mawla), 'Ali is his Leader (mawla)." The Holy Prophet then continued to say: " O' God, love those who love him, and be hostile to those who are hostile to him."] ..




Just a few amaal:


Imam Ali Ibn Moosa Ar Reza (a.s.) said: "It is highly rewarding to be in Najaf Iraq today for performing the Ziyarat of Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.). Give Alms today as much as you can, in the name of Allah, to the less fortunate, because, the "day of Ghadeer" is particularly specified for helping deserving people."

We can give expression to our joy and happiness in a suitable manner keeping in view the life style the tenets of Islam. It is highly desirable to make the believers (Momineen) happy. to do favours to relatives, to give gifts, and invite friends and relatives to eat meals together, forgive mistakes etc.

Recite salwaat "Allahuma salle alaa Mohammad wa Aale Mohammad "   اللّهُمّ صَلّ عَلَى مُحَمّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمّدٍ بِهِ.'O Allah, send blessings on Muhammad and his household'.

Do Istighfaar (seeking forgiveness from the Almighty)as many times as possible.


(1) Have a Ghusl /bath, put on new or clean clothes and apply perfume

(2) Observe fast. (Fasting on the Day of Ghadir is equivalent to fasting the time span of the (existence of the) entire world-A hadith )

(3) Recite  Ziarats of Imam Ali ibne Abi Talib (as) i) Special Ghadir day Ziarat  ( which contains a full overview of events in his life !)  (ii) Ziarat Ameenallah &   (iii) Ziarat Mut'laqah

(4) Recite Dua'a Nudbah

(5) Pray a 2 Raka't Salaat. before/near noon time , as under:
In the first Rakat recite Sura Qadr after Sura Fatihah & in the second Rakat recite Sura Ikhlass after Sura Fatihah

After Salaam

-Go into Sajdah and say 100 times: 'SHUKRAN LILLAAH '

-Then sit and recite the dua'a "Allamumma inni asaloka be anna lakal hamda wahdaka..(click here given below).

-Then go into Sajdah and recite :'ALHAMDU LILLAH '100 times & 'SHUKRAN LILLAH '100 times

A Hadith says 'One who does this a'mal today is entitled to receive the reward of a person who was present at Ghadeer, had heard the declaration, and accepted it as true'.


Sayed Modarassi states:


#RecommendedOnEidGhadir: To fast. It equates to fasting "an aeon". It is narrated it washes the sins of 60 years and equals 100 Hajj/Umras!

#RecommendedOnEidGhadir: To give charity, for every coin equals a million coins given on other days, for it is "the greatest day of all"

#RecommendedOnEidGhadir: To invite believers over a meal as "feeding a believer in the day of #Ghadeer equates to feeding all the Prophets"!

Which is the dua' that people read whilst holding each other's hands? Is it 'Allahumma inni asaluka..' or something else?

Eid Ghadeer mubarak to you all!

While holding each other's hands? I have never heard or seen this in any mosque I have went. Where did you hear about this?
