The event of Ghadir Khumm (Arabic and Persian: واقعه غدیر خم) took place in February 632. It was where, among other things, the Islamic prophet Muhammad reportedly announced that “to whomsoever I am Mawla, Ali is also their Mawla.” Shia Muslims believe this to be the appointment of Ali as Muhammad’s successor. Most Muslims accept the historicity of the event, but not all believe that this constituted an appointment of Ali as the successor to the Prophet, since the word Mawla can have many meanings. The day’s anniversary in the Islamic Calendar (18 Dhu al-Hijjah) is celebrated by Shias as Eid al-Ghadeer.
