Ghadir Khum is the eternal witness on al-Saud’s hate policies

 

Ghadir Khum is the place chosen by the holy prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, to announce Imam Ali, peace be upon him, as a caliph and a successor chosen by Allah.  

The ponds in this area are distinguished as they do not dry up all year round.

The location is a rest area for pilgrims coming from Mecca and on their way to Jihfa intersection.

In the present day, as a result of Saudi Arabia’s oppressive policies against Shiites, pilgrims are prevented from visiting or recognizing this sacred place that once witnessed the succession of 'Amir al-Muminin Ali bin Abi Talib, peace be upon him after the holy prophet, peace and blessing be upon him and his progeny.

Ghadir Khum is the name of the place that lies between the holy cities of Mecca and Medina; it is the place where Imam Ali was chosen to be the Prophet's successor.

Ghadir, in Arabic, translates to a place where water accumulates after heavy rainfall or floods. On the flood path that flows from the west to the east of Saudi Arabia and then to the Red Sea, there are multiple pools of water or reservoirs containing rainwater collected throughout the year. 

Ghadir Khum is about two hundred kilometers away from Mecca and three hundred kilometers from Medina. It is located between the mountain range stretching from north to south where desert trees are widespread in the region.

The ponds in this area are distinguished as they do not get dry all year round. The area is a resting place for those who come from Mecca before arriving to Jihfa intersection.

For such distinguished features this place possesses, it was chosen by the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, to announce Ali, peace be upon him, as a caliph and a successor chosen by Allah. 

After the Ghadir event, the place remained a rest area for pilgrims.

In the present day, as a result of Saudi Arabia’s oppressive policies against Shiites, pilgrims were prevented from visiting or recognizing this sacred place that witnessed the succession of 'Amir al-Muminin Ali bin Abi Talib, peace be upon him, after the holy prophet, peace and blessing be upon him and his progeny.
