Aamal and prayers of Eid-e-Ghadeer
1. It is recommended to take bath early in the day
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.
6. It is customary among the followers of Ahl-e-Bait(a.s.)
