Shia Muslims are celebrating Eid-e-Mubahila today to mark the anniversary of historic victory of Hazrat Mohammad, the last apostle and Prophet of God in a challenge where challengers withdrew from their stance against Prophet of Islam.
Special congregations are being held where Shia scholars and poets are creating awareness among people about the historic event of Mubahila. People distribute sweets and give Eidi to children. Special prayers were also held on Eid-e-Mubahila in all over Pakistan like other parts of the world.
The event of Mubahila occurred in the 10th of Hijrah on 24th of Zil-Hajj in Najran that was a fertile land located in the Northern mountainous region of Yemen about 20 Kms from Sanaa. Some Christian pops challenged Islam and Prophet of Islam.
Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) had brought with them his family members including his daughter Hazrat Bibi Fatima (AS), his son-in-law Imam Ali (AS) and grandsons Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain (AS).
