Yemeni Shias Celebrate Eid Al-Qadir in Sana’a for First Time

Yemeni Shias Celebrate Eid Al-Qadir in Sana’a for First Time

The Houthi Shias of Yemen have celebrated the auspicious occasion of Eid al-Qadir in the capital Sana'a for the first time.

Their celebrations were officially held in the capital on Saturday night, Eram news network reported.

While in previous years, the occasion was marked with small ceremonies in Sana'a, this year Shias held mass celebrations.
This comes a few weeks after Houthis achieved victory in their uprising following a month of anti-government rallies.

Eid al-Qadir is the commemoration of a historic day in Islam. 14 centuries ago, on the 18th of month of Zi al-Hajjah, on his way back from his last Hajj pilgrimage, Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) received a revelation from God, ordering him to halt the pilgrims at a pond called Qadir Khum, and to designate Ali ibn Abi-Taleb (AS) as his successor in guiding and ruling Muslims.

This day is celebrated by many Muslims around the world.
