Eid Al-Ghadeer’s Lie: Houthi only who should take power in Yemen
The Houthi militia employs the celebration of Al-Ghadeer’s day politically, which on this day promotes that Houthi only who should take power in Yemen.
They claim that the mandate (the political and religious leadership) is confined to Ali Bin Abi Taleb his offspring. So, the Houthis’ militia leader finds himself qualified for this role at this time.
All Shiite sects claim that the prophet Mohammad had selected Ali Bin Abi Taleb as his successor to rule Muslims; a leader and guide for them.
Shiites claim that in this day, the Prophet Mohammed had addressed his followers in the 18th of Dhu’l-Hijjah, in the tenth year of his Hijrah (his trip from Makkah to AL-Madinah), in the valley of Khumm, near a water stream between Mecca and Medina (during his return from his farewell pilgrimage, accompanied by tens of thousands of Muslims).
Shiites say, in this day, the Prophet said, those who follow me must follow Ali Bin Abi Talib and those who stand against Ali stand against me too; Oh God, support who stands with Ali and fight who fights Ali.
Shiites consider that occasion a clear pledge of allegiance to Ali Bin Abi Taleb from Allah and His Messenger, to become Muslims’ ruler after the death of the Prophet.
This is a pure doctrinal Shiite celebration, and falsify Shiites’ claim that the Prophet Mohammed had chosen Imam Ali Bin Abi Talib as a leader after his death.
Therefore, Houthi militia followers celebrate this day to prove their presence and consolidate their faith, in order to legitimize their movements and activities.
They want falsify to prove that it is Houthi who should take power in Yemen since he is a descendant of Ali Bin Abi Taleb.
This feast celebration starts from the night of Dhu’l-Hijjah 18. The Houthi militia followers intensively shoot fireworks in the sky over Sana’a city and Saadah.
The manifestation of joy continues until the morning. Houthis’ militia leader, delivers his public speech speaking about the greatness of this occasion and the importance of the mandate in the life of Muslims.
He used to send political messages during his speech. He always reiterates that when Islamic nation went away from its real leaders (relatives of the Prophet), it was dominated by America and Israel, and their agents in the region.
