Read more about the significance of Ghadeer-e-Khum here:
“Eid-e-Ghadir Khumm is the day in which Rasulullah SA delivered the final message, the final farizat– the walaayat of his wasiyy, Maulana Ali SA. We are blessed and fortunate that over 1400 years later we are among those who have fulfilled the oath of Ghadeer. The Nass that was proclaimed by Rasulullah on Amirul Mumineen continued in the line of Imams in the progeny of Muhammad and Ali. And during Imam’s satar, that same Nass continues in the Du’aat by Imam Aamir’s appoint of the 1st Da’i – Syedna Zu’ayb at the hands of Maulatuna Hurratul Malika and each Dai’s appointment of his successor through the ilhaam of Imam-uz-zaman.

Read about the sharaf of these ten days:
Sijill Article 72 – The Ten Days of Forgiveness (Maghfirat): In this article, Shehzada Dr. Aziz Bhaisaheb discusses that our Hudaat Kiraam have divided sins into three categories: 1) transgressions between an individual and Allah Ta’ala, 2) transgressions between an individual and Allah’s waliyy (sahibuz-zamaan) and, 3) transgressions between one individual and another individual.
Sijill Article 71 – The Pillar of “Sawm” (Roza): In this article, Shehzada Dr. Aziz Bhaisaheb explains Syedna Qadi al-Nu’man’s quote of Maulatuna Fatema AS, “what good is one’s roza if he does not safeguard his tongue, ears, eyes and limbs [from all that is Haraam].”
Sijill Article 20 – Fasting and Forbearance: Self-Discipline Not Self-Denial: In this article, Shehzada Dr. Aziz Bhaisaheb Qutbuddin narrates that when Shehzada Dr. Abdeali Bhaisaheb was a student of journalism at the American University in Cairo, he wrote a letter to the editor of the paper saying that Ramadan is not a month of “self-denial” but rather a month of self-discipline – Indeed, we discipline ourselves in small ways and large.
