Eid-e-Ghadeer -18th Dhul hijjah
Shaheed Foundation Pakistan Extends heartiest greetings and felicitations to Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s), Marajieen Ezam, Ulama-e-Karam, momineen and mominaat on the auspicious occassion of Eid-e-Ghadeer -18th Dhul hijjah.
The 18th of Dhul-hijjah is a very important day in the islamic calendar. It is known as Eid al-Ghadeer, referring to that great moment in history when the Holy Prophet (s), may God bless him and his household, declared the Wilayat of Imam Ali Ibne Abi Talib in front of over 100,000 Muslims returning from Haj. It was after this event that Allah instantly announced the completion of the deen and the fulfilment of his bounties.
It was the tenth year of Hijra, when the Holy Prophet(s) performed his last pilgrimage to the Holy Kaaba. Several thousands of companions from different parts of the world accompanied the Holy Prophet. This was the first time that the Muslims with this magnitude gathered in one place in the presence of their leader, The Holy Prophet(s).
