Amal-E-18 Zilhaj (Eid E Gadeer)

Aamal and prayers of Eid-e-Ghadeer

  1. It is recommended to take bath early in the day for purification.
  2. Observe fast on this day.
  3. Recite Ziarat-e-Ameenallah and Ziarat-e-Mutliqah
  4. Recite Ziarat-e-Nudbah
  5. Offer 2 rakaat prayer of Eid-e-Ghadeer before mid-day. In each Rakaat after Sura Hamd recite
    10 times Sura Ahad (Qul ho Allah ho Ahad),
    10 times Sura Qadr (Inna anzalna ho fi lailat-il-Qadr) and
    10 times Ayat al-Kursi.
    This prayer is highly rewarding and whatever dua is asked for from Allah(swt), inshallah, will be granted. It is recommended to recite this prayer closer to but before mid-day since that was the time when Prophet Mohammad(pbuh&hf) announced the successorship and nomination of Imam Ali(a.s.) as master of the faithfuls.

After the prayers go into prostration and recite:
100 times “Shukran Lillah” and
100 times ” Alhamd-o-lillah”.

Imam Jaffer Sadiq(a.s.) says that whoever does so will be like a person who accepted the Imamate and Caliphate of Imam Ali(a.s.) and pledged allegiance at the Ghadeer-e-Khum in front of Prophet Mohammad(pbuh&hf). The person who performs this act will also like those who will be with the Imam-e-Zamana(a.s.) under his flag.

  1. It is customary among the followers of Ahl-e-Bait(a.s.) to greet each other on this day and shake their hands and say to each other the following : “Akhaituka fil lah-e wa safetoka fil lah-e wa safahtoka fil lah-e wa aahad tullah-a wa malaekatahu wa kutubahu wa rusulahu wa ambiya-uhu wa aaimmatul ma’soomeena alaihumus salam ala anni in kuntu min ahlil jannati wash shafa’ate wa oozina lee be an adkhulal jannah la adkhulaha illa wa anta ma ee aa”.
  2. Recite 100 times.

اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ الّذى جَعَلَ كَمالَ دينِهِ وَتَمامَ نِعْمَتِهِ بِوِلايَةِ اَميرِ الْمُؤ مِنينَ عَلىِّ بْنِ اَبى طالِبٍ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ
