Happy Eid al-Ghadeer

Shia Rights Watch expresses warm wishes to observers of Eid al-Ghadeer. 

Eid al-Ghadir calls for respect for all religions and sects. It promotes democracy and freedom for all segments of the people and in all countries of the world. It is a day that guarantees the realization of social justice for all.

Eid al-Ghadeer in an occasion that commemorates the sermon given by Prophet Mohammad after his final Hajj, or the “Farewell Pilgrimage” as noted by historians. The Prophet stood upon a pulpit made of rocks and toolings and spent an approximate 3 hours speaking to his constituents of the basics of the religion. On that day, the Prophet repeated nearly 100 verses of the Holy Quran and emphasized the weight of deeds in the future 73 times.

The event of Ghadeer is marked in both Shia and Non-Shia history. 

Shia Muslims use the day of Ghadeer as an occasion to reflect on the final words of the Prophet and serves as a reminder of Islamic values. On this day, Shia Muslims gather in unison, shaking hands and taking an oath of camaraderie. 

Shia Rights Watch congratulates observers of this auspicious occasion and promotes social justice for all.
