Iranians from various walks of life are enthusiastically celebrating the auspicious occasion of Eid al-Ghadir across the country on Tuesday.

Iran (IMNA) - Eid al-Ghadir marks the time when the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) appointed Imam Ali (AS) as his successor following an order from God. This Shia Muslim holiday commemorates the Prophet's final sermon at Ghadir Khumm, where he declared that "to whomsoever I am Mawla, Ali is also their Mawla."

Celebrations are taking place nationwide, with a 10-kilometer-long festival held in Tehran's Valiasr Street, featuring cultural, social, art, and entertainment programs. Children are participating by donating their toys to low-income families, following the tradition of Imam Ali (AS).

Foreign nationals from countries in the "Resistance Axis" are also taking part in the Tehran festivities this year. Ahead of Eid al-Ghadir and Eid al-Adha, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution has pardoned and commuted the sentences of over 2,654 convicts.

Eid al-Ghadir is one of the most significant holidays for Shia Muslims, celebrating the appointment of Imam Ali (AS) as the successor to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Iranians are marking the occasion with great enthusiasm and devotion across the country.
