By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY CITY OF NAJAF, Iraq: Millions of devoting pilgrims gathered at the holy shrine of Amir Al-Mominin Al-Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (AS) in the holy city of Najaf marking Eid Al-Ghadir Al-A'ghar or the feast of Ghadir to renew their oath of allegiance to him on Dholhijjah 18, November 3, Saturday.

Feast of Ghadir is the day when holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) placed the crown of Imamate and caliphate on the head of Ameer-ul-Momineen Hazrat Imam Ali ibn-e-Abi Talib (AS) in the plain of Ghadir-e-Khumm saying: "Ali (AS) is master of all those, of whom I am master".

The gatherings offered greetings in the respected court of Imam (AS) and to each other in connection with the auspicious occasion reciting eulogies and ziyarah.
