On the 18th of the month of Dhu al-Hijjah, all the followers and lovers of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) celebrate an important occasion of great impact on their hearts. This is the occasion of the Greatest Eid of Allah, Eid al-Ghadir, during which they renew their covenant to the Commander of humanity and the Faithful; Ali Ibn Abi Taleb (peace be upon him), who became the guardian of every believer since the moment when the Great Prophet (Allah's prayers be upon him) held the arm of Ali Ibn Abi Taleb (peace be upon him) and set him on that day as Master of Muslims on that day.
In this context, and within the program prepared by the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine to commemorate this great anniversary, the sanctuary of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) was decorated with embroidered banners with joyful phrases lit with colorful lams that glow in the anniversary of the joys of the lovers and followers, in addition to the trees and flowers at the entrances of the holy shrine and at its outer wall.
The decorations were also spread out on the corridors in addition to the publication of signs on which a number of phrases about the Eid al-Ghadir were drawn.
It is to note that Eid al-Ghadeer is one of the greatest Eids of the followers of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them), as on the 18th of Dhu al-Hijjah, the Holy Prophet (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) has delivered a sermon in which he appointed Imam Ali (peace be upon him) his successor and guardian and the commander of the Muslims after him, and that was after the return of Muslims from the farewell's pilgrimage [Hajjat al-Wada'] to Medina, stopping at a place called "Ghadeer Khum" in the year 10 AH.
