The Day of Ghadeer
The 18th of Dhul-Hijjah of the year 10 AH, is a very important day in the muslim calendar. It is known as Eid al-Ghadeer, refering to that great moment in history when the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) declared in front of over 100,000 Muslims returning from Haj the Wilayat of Ali Bin Abi Talib (A.S)
Eid-e-Ghadeer is celebrated with great rejoicing by all Muslims where they remember Prophet Muhammad's (S.A.W) last instructions to the believers.
The historical details are very well known to all of us and widely found in various books of history, theology and polemics. Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (A.S) was asked if there was Eid for Muslims besides Friday, Adha and Fitr. Imam replied, "Yes, there is one more Eid which is most great in holiness, The person asked him which Eid that was. Imam said:"It is the day when the Messenger of GOD declared Amir M'mineen has vicegerent.
"O Apostle! Deliver what has been sent down to you from your Lord; and if you don't do it, you have not delivered is message at all); and Allah will protect you from the people...(Qur'an 5:67)
