Eid al-Ghadir is among the important feasts and happy holidays of Shi’ah Muslims and is held ‎on Dhu al-Hijjah 18, when according to reports, the noble Prophet Muhammad (s) appointed ‎Ali ibn Abi Talib (a) as his caliph and Imam after his death following an order from God. This ‎event happened after the Prophet’s (s) Hajjat al-Wida’ (the Farewell Hajj), in 10 AH/632 CD ‎in a place called Ghadir Khumm.‎

In Shi’ah hadiths, the anniversary has been called “Eid Allah al-Akbar” (the greatest eid of ‎God), Eid of Ahl al-Bayt (a) and “Ashraf al-A’yad” (Most Honourable Eid). The Shi’ah ‎celebrate this day around the world with various customs.‎
