Shia Muslims are ready to celebrate Eid al-Ghadir

No Comments

Shia Muslims are preparing to celebrate the most important holiday in their calendar, but it is a holiday that goes unmarked by their Sunni coreligionists. In fact, Eid Al-Ghadir represents the precise moment when Islam split into two main factions.

The occasion commemorates what Shias believe was the anointing of Ali ibn Abi Talib, commonly called Imam Ali, by the Prophet Muhammad as his divinely chosen successor. They will celebrate in their homes and at a major public event, fasting, praying, giving gifts and feasting.
